A WICKED HOP - JUST GHASTLY!

Who are the Ghastlies?
They remind me of Edward Gorey's 
the "Gashlycrum Tinies"

Alexander Henry, the fabric designer, website says
In Ghastlie Manor on Ghastlie Street there's a Ghastlie family there to meet. 
Mathilda Ghastlie with husband too extend a Ghastlie hand to you. 
It's a Ghastlie day for a Ghastlie walk, under Ghastlie trees on a Ghastlie block. 
A Ghastlie time for Ghastlie things like Ghastlie pets with Ghastlie wings!

This orange fabric was one of the first lines made.
I don't have it and that is a NIGHTMARE!


I've been really WICKED
making 4 GHASTLIES kwilts 
in the last 2 months.

 "The Ghastlies" gray color wave
using the "Side lights" pattern (by Kari Nichols)
you can order it here.


Aanother gray version of the patter using   
 "A Ghastlies Night" and pink borders.
The gray and pink colors is what first drew me
into the Ghastlies household. 

 "The Ghastlies" fabric in mauve, my design.
I did use both "The Ghastlies" and "A Ghastlie Night"
for the sidelight blocks in this one. 
 

Love this little girls...and
I'm still looking for my hammer!



I couldn't find the orange Ghastlies fabric
so I made my own orange and black design by
fussy cutting centers and making wonky frames.
The orange flange just makes this one POP!



Here are some close ups of the blocks
showing the quilting and a better feel for
the actual colors..still working on the photogrpahy!
Maybe Santa will bring me a new camera?







AND last but not least...I designed a tote bag using
"The Ghastlies Family Gallery" fabric in gray.
