JANUARY - STASH BUSTIN KWILT

My January 'Stash Kwilt" is going to be the
 6th (yes 6th) Ghastlies Kwilt for the same customer.

I choose Perfect 10 by Swirly Girls Design as the pattern
so I can highlight the Ghastlies Family Portriats.
No border for this one, sew it will finish at 48" x 60"


Here are my "Stash Fabrics"


  I cut the portraits out individually and then using a solid pink
built them out to out 8 1/2" squares.

Let me introduce you to...
The Ghastlies Family

1. Mathilde Ghastlie, The Matriarch
2. Gasper Ghastlie, Devoted Husband
3.  Garrick Ghastlie, 2nd Son of Mathilde and Gasper
4.  Mildred, Magda and Minerva Grislie, Mathilde's Sisters
5.  Cordella and Cassius Ghastlie, Twins of Sebastien and Darla
6. Darla Ghastlie, Sebastian's wife
7. Gunnar Grislie, Mathilde's Father
8. The Widow Ghastlie, Gaspar's Beloved Mother
9. Sebastian Ghastlie, Son of Mathilde and Gasper

 Design Wall plus Big Board to get the blocks in a pleasing layout.
All portraits are framed in black.


 Blocks are sewn together in rown here 
and now it all fits on the design wall.
I love the way the PINK makes the kwilt pop!




Close up of the fabrics in the blocks.
I plan to kwilt a spider web in the gray spider web blocks.



and ta...da...the top is done





And here is the back.


Using a B & W polka dot and a
Light greenish square with dots

Long arm machine kwilting come springtime!
