..And now for Ms. Carrie Ghastlies’ Sickness..
I am Ms. Carrie Ghastlie and my Ghastlie sickness started this summer when I saw this fabric at a quilt show. Unfortunately they did not have any fabric to sell.. so I promptly came home and got on the internet and found the fabric.. and well the rest is a Ghastlie history as you will see.
Here are my GHASTLIE offerings, sew if you can’t find the cure here, then the undead will be welcoming your arrival… SEW enough with the formalities and on with the sickness! Below are all my projects, the last one is my giveaway!
First up is my Twisted Block Ghastlie Lap Quilt. I looked through EQ7 for a block I could use to highlight these GHASTLIE figures, and go figure it was the “Twisted” block that worked the best. This was foundation pieced, the first time I used EQ7, and the first time I have done sashing.
To even get more GHASTLIE.. This is an AMY Butler Chelsea Tote that I had a pattern for and thought I would check out how GHASTLIE my material looked on the tote. I ended up making the tote taller than the pattern called for to frame my favorite characters.
Yes, I have to admit I do have a GHASTLIE sickness.. Next up is a slouch purse that I have made a few times, but since I love the purse and I love the GHASTLIES, it made a purrfect match. There is a zipper pocket on the outside and pockets on the inside.
Sew now that you all know that I have plenty of ways to Tote my stuff around, what about getting some much needed sleep or I may just look GHASTLIE in the morning. Yep.. I made a pillowcase (actually two)… to lay my sleepy head down at a retreat when I have stayed up most of the night sewing!
On these last few project I get show off my GHASTLIE applique, where I get to pluck these GHASTLIE figures off the fabric and put them in their place. This little art quilt is 12″ x 12″, and puts these GHASTLIE knitters in their own little room to knit and gossip on all the GHASLTIE happenings. I also added charms to the wall as wall pictures, and the wallpaper is also done with a decorative stitch on my machine. The floor boards were done with free motion quilting. All applique is raw edge (my favorite).
Next in this GHASTLIE sickness is a Crayon Tote that I did for a 3 year old for her birthday. I appliqued the GHASTLIES onto the pink background, put the pockets on the front for the crayons, and filled it with some crayon books for her birthday. I added the feathers and fringe onto the bottom just for her(MOM) because they are very girly and love pink!
Finally, is a mug rug that I did in honor of The Ghastlie Blog Hop with the little Miss sickly GHASTLIE, and her pictures in the background, with her cat, and that lovely little girl. I also added a charm as a wall picture to this GHASTLIE mug rug. All applique is raw edge.
