    Have you used Ghastlies in a quilt? The prints are a bit pricey, but they are so cute and creepy! They remind me of some books my kids used to read, "A Series of Unfortunate Events", or the Adams Family, or Tim Burton's "Nightmare Before Christmas" with their sober, Victorian, angry faces that say, "Don't bother me..." a bit macabre. And then there's the kids! OK, somehow, it makes me smile!

    What would you make out of these fabrics?

    I love these fabrics. What a hoot to make a table runner perhaps. I sure would fussy cut them so I could enjoy the scenes,

    I just finished a quilt with them. I bought the orange first and then found the gray. I didn't use a pattern. I just cut out the pictures and added fabric till it was what I liked. Very random. I made it for one of my daughters for her birthday. She loves most anything Tim Burten and these reminded me of his stuff.

    What a mess, sorry, I took this picture before I cleaned up. I will take a picture of the finished quilt tomorrow, it in the dryer.
