During the summer I went to a quilt show in Gladwin, Michigan and a vendor had a Ghastlies quilt hanging there for show, and I instantly fell in love with this fabric and knew I had to find it and do something with it! She did not have any of the fabric for sale at the show, so I came home and went right online and found several vendors who had it and ordered every color and some of the coordinating fabrics. I am so happy to be a part of this blog hop and to be among other Ghastlie lovers! I can’t wait to show off what I have worked on, and I plan on having my own giveaway on my site also! I look forward to meeting all of the bloggers and seeing all the GREAT GHASTLIE projects that will be created! Thanks Madame Samm for hosting this wonderful blog hop! Please keep updated with me by liking me on facebook and I will let you know which day my blog will be featured! love it, share it!facebook twitter pinterest google
These are couple of Amy Butler’s Chelsea Totes that I made recently. I fell in love with Alexander Henry’s (The Ghastiles and his line of Dia De Los Muertos) fabric. I’ve started with the fabrics in these totes. Once I made one of these totes, the second one was really easy to put together. Check Amy Butler’s website for updated instructions to the pattern. I believe the the yardage amounts for the interfacing’s are interchanged.

Kathy Myers, the wife of a co-worker of mine, couldn’t find a long arm quilter to finish this baby quilt in time for the baby shower so she asked for my assistance in trying to do it herself. I got her started on doing some free-motion quilting, but she didn’t feel she could get herself up to speed in a week so I quilted it for her. It is a cute quilt that she made for her grandson and I was quite honored that she trusted me to quilt it for her. Behind the bunny I did some feathers and small stippling, in the yellow border I did some leaves, and in the blue bars below the bunny I did some diamonds. and finally some circle inside circles in the outer border. I really liked how the quilting behind the bunny really made the bunny pop off the quilt. Thanks again Kathy for trusting me to work on your quilt!love it, share it!facebook twitter pinterest google
