Ghastlie Blog Hop - Day 4

Welcome!  Glad you've stopped in to see the "secret sewing" I've been doing as a part of the Ghastlies Blog Hop.   Now before I overwhelm you with photos of my projects made from this fabric line,... I want to make sure you all know that there are daily giveaways during the the Ghastlies Blog Hop.  To be entered for the daily grand prize (shown over at Madame Ghastlie's - she happens to be our lovely hostess that came up with this fun idea and she's also a Ghastlie enabler  source of inspiration  ;o),  remember to leave a comment (one on each blog you visit on their appointed day).  Okay?


    Now that I know you're set to win, are you ready for me to share something Ghastlie?
 How about a lap quilt, featuring this fiendish family!


 The finished quilt is 52" square, so I'm calling it a lap quilt.  My sons thought it must be a baby quilt because they have become used to me making bed sized quilts.  When I explained that it wasn't meant to be a baby quilt, my youngest son said, "Good, because this quilt would scare the baby!".  Can you guess what I named my quilt?.....Scare the Baby...
 Speaking of scary... what are they knitting in this scene?....
 and what is she doing with that hammer?
 Now this fellow doesn't look too scary... but  what's up with the invisible dog on his leash? ;o)
Want to hear something scary?  My addiction for quilt making.  Honestly, I didn't originally buy Ghastlies fabric with the intention of making a quilt.  I was picturing bags, aprons, tea cozies and the like.  Lots of small, quick, gift type sewing projects.   I was working on one such idea when a quilt design came to me and I just put aside all those earlier ideas and dove into making a Ghastlie quilt.
 Sometimes scary is good. :o)
 One idea seems to lead to another and it was while I was making the quilt  and looking at this block
 and this witch, that another project came to me.

I thought about combining them...

into a wall hanging.
Would you like a tour?  Let me be your guide.
Okay, be careful, when passing the family cat, Sebastian, as you enter.  He's a bit of a fiend at times.

            
Off to your left, you probably noticed the dining room is in use.  Let's leave them to it and go to the next room on the main floor.

Looks like Uncle is getting ready to walk his dog, so we might as well head on up the stairs.
From this window, you can view the bramble garden, but let's leave this sad fellow here, deep in contemplation.
Upstairs, into the parlour we go!  Oh, seems like the doctor has been paying a visit.  Hope whatever she has isn't catching... let's be on our way, just in case.
 Over in the west wing, I'm not sure if her broom is out to do a spot of sweeping up or if she's making some travelling plans.  Let's not disturb, whatever the case.  She doesn't look too pleased to see us. ;o)
Hiking up the stairs into the tower, we come to my favourite room.  I think it must be a studio of sorts.  Just look at the knitting going on here!

 Up the last flight of stairs inside the tower we come to the loft... otherwise known as the  hideaway.  It's usually very quiet up here... but oh, it seems to be occupied today.  That's okay, it seems we've come to the final room on our tour.  Hope you enjoyed your visit.  Be sure to sign the guestbook on your way out and please, come again!



To give you an idea of the scale I used, I've placed my Scare the Baby quilt next to the No Place Like Home wall hanging.  Look at the bottom right hand of the quilt.  See that house surrounded by the polka dot fabrics?  That was the inspiration and template for the house I put together for the wall hanging.   

Next up,  meet the Sour Faced Babushka dolls...
Scary Mary,
 Bored Betty,
and the matriarch,  Mad Mathilda.

 Apparently, even babushkas have days when they don't feel like smiling (but I hope my silly dolls made YOU smile ;o).
The final project I have to share is something I made using some Ghastlies in the mauve colourway, partnered with some polka dots, gingham and some vintage ric-rac.

Here is a little something I made especially for YOU, to thank you for visiting today.  Leave me a comment*  on this post, for a chance to win this Dotty over the Ghastlies apron (winner will be responsible for postage).  I will close the giveaway at midnight,  and the winner will be announced here, tomorrow, Friday Oct. 28th.   Just a reminder, please make sure I can contact you through your email if you're the winner. 

* Your comment here will also have you entered for a chance at today's grand prize over at Sew I Quilt.

 Thanks so much for visiting here and letting me share with you my Ghastly sewing projects.  I wish I could say I'm done with the Ghastlies, but I think not (although my family claims they've seen enough of my Ghastlie projects for a while... lol).

Thanks again to Madame Ghastlie for her brilliant plan for a cure to Ghastlie fever.

Okay, now off you go to visit my Ghastlie stitching friends to see their wonderful creations and remember to leave comments at each blog (because we love hearing from YOU and because we want you to have a chance at some prizes.)

ON Thursday October 27th 

       Mrs. Katherine Ghastlie       (that's me!)

Love your quilt and especially LOVE the name - so funny! Reminds me of a very ~ahem vibrant baby quilt I once made that made my DH fear would cause seizures. =:-o

Those babushka dolls are hilariously cute, and I would love to win your apron. Can you imagine answering the door in that on Halloween?

Heather said...

Those babushkas are hilarious, Katherine. Too, too funny. I didn't realize until the end of your house tour that you actually made the house as well. Wow! I had thought it was a printed fabric panel and then you came up with the idea to add the people in each room - I should have known better knowing how creative you are. Love that. And frankly, even with all those ghastlies in there I think I'd still like to live in that house, would have to do something about that bramble garden though. ;-)

Bonnie said...

Love all of your projects, but the house is just awesome. Would like to win the apron.

WoolenSails said...

The fabric is so fun to make into a quilt, love the designs by themselves and using the faces for the dolls is so clever and great to make a whole family.

Sherri said...

VERY inspiring ideas for this fabric and just for making something unique! I love, love, love, the house idea! I have a project in mind that I might utilize this idea of yours with. I also thought, hmmm, why NOT make a shower curtain and bathroom accessories out of Ghastlie fabrics? lol

Mrs.Pickles said...

I thought that quilt was so creative and then i saw the wall hanging now that is just amazing. Great work!

Pattie Crum said...

Your projects are the best so far. Love all of it.

Angie @ Summerfield Quilts said...

Scare the baby is an awesome name. I'm still laughing.

Gmama Jane said...

Katherine, everything is amazing but that wll hanging is to *die* for. I wanted to do the exact same thing and couldn't figure out how. Could you tell me how to do one with my Ghastlie fabric? I saw a Haunted House Quilt at our local Quilt Show and was inspired but just couldn't figure out how they made the templates. I'm new at applique so I would love some professional help.
Blessings
Mrs. Gmama Jane Ghastlie
