Welcome, Festival Goers!
This time around, I have decided to share my favorite quilt-du-jour and most recent finish, my Ghastlies quilt. I found the perfect "haunted house" at which to photograph my quilt...very spooky!
I made this one with no pattern or plan in mind, just started with a few wonky blocks around fussy cuts from Alexander Henry's The Ghastlies line, and the project grew. I added oranges, purples and pinks from my stash to compliment the greys and blacks, and had a blast bringing it all together. One of my favorite parts is the wonky border, and the huge spiderweb quilting. I did a tutorial for the quilting here (and there is also a Ghastly giveaway that you can enter if you'd like!).
The back is a simple spiderweb print from the local Fabricland, which, we discovered by fluke recently, glows in the dark! My kids were VERY excited by this, really ramped up the "cool" factor for them (is "cool" the word to use these days??).
Wishing you all a spooktacular Halloween, and thanks for stopping by! You can peek at some of my other finished quilts here if you'd like. Enjoy the Festival!
Update: It is nomination time, so if you are kind enough to nominate my quilt, I am #352! Best categories would be:
- quilt photography
- home machine quilted (spiderweb!)
- throw quilt
