    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.

    I have the fabric as well. I think it is so cute. Some one on here posted a picture of a quilt she made out of this line. She was my insperation to buy the fabric. I think she may have posted maybe last Augest or the first of September. She showed how she made her blocks in her post. Might be worth looking for it here. Good luck.

    Adorable fabric that made me laugh! Reminds me of "Eloise" that lived in a hotel.

    I read on a blog today about a ghastlie's blog hope this week. I don't recall which one though- the woman who does the "sew we quilt" giveaway blogs.

    It isn't my style at all, but a fun fabric for others.

    Yes, there's a Ghastlie BLOG HOP that began today, Oct 24th and runs through November 4th!

    54 "Ghastlie Ghouls" are taking turns (five or six per day) showing the fun things they've made with this Ghastlie fabric! Madame Samm of "Sew We Quilt" put it together, and you can find out all about it on her blog: http://www.sewiquiltnow.com

    One of the Ghastlie Gals also started a Pin Board on Pinterest, if that interests you. http://pinterest.com/tonyadusold/ghastlies/

    I just wanted to see if there were more of us out there that has a thing for this quirky fabric!!
