MY GHASTLIES

Come along with me to place that is 
decadent, dark, deliciously fun and quite Ghastlie!
I am obsessed with this GHASTLIE Halloween Family
 and know by many as The GHASTLIE Queen
I created some wonderful quilts for you to enjoy!
Phillip deLeon is the designer and creator
of all the Ghastlies Fabric which surfaced in 2009.
Alexander Henry is the manufacturer 
and they have shown my Ghastlie makes at Quilt Market.
He loves that I can show others how to use this fabric!
Who needs quilt shows when the fabric designer
wants your work!

There's a lot of Ghastliness on this page.
It will be worth the time you spend here
to find out if I am indeed "The Ghastlies Queen".

Lets begin with photos taken at Spring Quilt Market 2017

AFTER it was returned from the long arm quilter.
 Although she did exactly what I asked.... I wasn't satisfied.
 SEW because this was my "Masterpiece" 
I picked out the quilting and using my Bernina 740, FMQ
with matching threads colors I meandered to match the fabric colors and quilted more spider webbing over the block centers.
  After 60 hours of un-picking and re-quilting, 
the answer to the question is YES!

Mini Ghastlie Quilts

One of my favorite mini quilt patterns is the 25" square
Nested Churn Dash by Jane

This one was made for an Instagram swap 2014
Mathilda (Grislie) Ghastlie, Family Matriarch


This Nested Churn Dash Mini was also for a Ghastlie Swap 2014
Mathilda overseeing a Ghastlie Night dinner.


Again, I wish I still had these beauties.


I received this Ghastlie mini in a Ghastlie Swap
and adore the wonky blocks.
It was a bit off square and I could really tell that when I hung it.
Sew I simply took the black binding, squared it up, then added orange binding.  I always give myself permission to make
 adjustments to my prized possessions!


This is Ghastlie Family Reunion on the back!
I love it!


I received this mini in an Instagram Swap
Nothing so cute as Ghastlies set in Economy blocks.
