GHASTLIE BLOG HOP IS HERE TODAY!!!

Here is my wall hanging blowing in the wind. I want to add some words to it, have any ideas? The huge tree is done by machine. Notice the buttons? They are from Button Mad, Incomparable Inc.

Here is the remaining fabric. There is close to a half yard here.
Here is the fabric folded (didn't want to trim it up in case someone wanted to fussy cut)...Yes, I said someone. I am giving this fabric plus a click it bag designed by Robin Quilts etc.




I have given you the link in case you wanted to go and purchase this fun bag. Just leave a comment!

I can not even begin to say how fun this hop has been. If you have missed the first few days, you truly need to go and check out the other blogs. What talent and creativity out there.
A big Thanks to Madame Samm for arranging this for all of us.

So please, go and start hopping....and thanks for coming by.

SEE BIG PRIZE ON POST BELOW!!

Giveaway is closed....thanks for coming by

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!

Rachel said...

Well, cool! I love your wallhanging! I have some Ghastlies that I have been afraid to cut. I plan to order more so I can make my daughter the quilt she wants (it was supposed to be for me, but she begged). Needless to say, this quilt won't be made for Halloween this year. Oh well, Halloween happens next year too...

Marilee said...

Thanks to you, too. Good job with the tree, it goes with the Ghastlies.

Grammasheri said...

Amazing quilting you made the darling wall hanging to die for. And oh I have to go check out those buttons

Hello said...

Janet said...

Your quilt looks fabulous, I've been enjoying hopping around. What a bunch of talent the participants have.

Willow said...

It is sooo cute. I love it. You did a great job.

QuiltSue said...

I love the wallhanging. If you really want to add words, I think "boooo" and "woooo" would be good. but I'm not sure how you could get the sort of ghostlie tone in!

Twinstitches said...

Hi Barb!

I never knew what the Ghastlies were until I clicked on Madame Samm's blog button. It was love at first sight! I tried to think of some clever words but I could only come up with, "something ghastlie this way comes!". I also wanted to say thank you for sharing all your wonderful talents and creations with us! Thank you!

Penny said...

Your Ghastly hanging is beautiful. Such imagination.

LJ said...

I love that fabric, too. The Ghastlie blog hop has been such fun. I, too, can't believe all the marvelous creations!!

Sharon said...

Hi Barb I love the quilt. The name that first came to mind was" The Ghastlie's take Flight" but Imight think on it for a bit and come back with another one. I also love the click-it bag, what fun...have a great day.

CarolCHO said...

Mimi said...

Nice work!! Thanks for sharing.

Toni said...

Love it! This fabric is so fun! And you used purple! :) My fav color!

VickiT said...

Oh my ~ Beautiful wall hanging. I wish I had some 'words' for you but I am horrible at that type of thing. Heck, my own children are lucky they even got names when they were born. lol And on two of the three children I realized years later how I messed thst up even. WHY would anyone give their poor child a very common first name when thier last name is Andersen? That's like naming your child John Jones or something ya know. but yep, I did that to my twins.

Anyway, your tree is amazing too. That took a lot of work and patience I'm sure but it fits perfectly. Wonderful job you've done. I just adore the Ghastlies and am so upset I never bought any when it first hit the stores.

Ruth said...

Cute wall hanging! The drawing looks like fun!

StitchinByTheLake said...

Barb I just knew you would do something wonderful and there's that tree! I love it - I wish I had been peeking over your shoulder watching you do it. I'm going to try it on my next project. blessings, marlene

Melinda said...

You did such a great job, Barb! I feel guilty for not doing a quilt. There were definitely some lovely ones out there. We'll see what people think tomorrow. But I love yours today!

Donna said...

I just adore the cute young lady with the pink bow in her hair. This is such fun fabric!

Your wall hanging is adorable.

Brigitte said...

couldn't decide right now to make a cut into my fabric. Your interpretation is gorgeous, especially the tree
greetings Brigitte

Linda said...

piece peace said...

That tree is perfect for the Ghastlies. I love it.

Madame Samm said...

Goodness me what do I see---why a tree looking up at me...what it needs ...well it looks fine to me.. lot's of love stitched into it Ghasltie LOVE

mblittle5 said...

I haven't done much applique, but I love fussy cutting cute novelties for pieced quilts. I gotta say, I wasn't in love with this fabric the first time I saw it, but having seen all the cute items folks have done has really changed my point of view!!

Donna Joy said...

Ohh the wallhanging has some fancy swirly quilting. I need to learn how to do that. Such fun fabric.

Melissa said...

Cute wallhanging! This blog hop is so fun. Thanks for sharing!

Tonya said...

So cute! You could put the phrase "A Witching Night Tonight" on it.

debbie said...

The tree free-motion is great! I'm not so good at words either. MR and I write what we call "Bad Poetry" for special occasions. Some times serious, sometimes goofy. But I'll give it a go
Home is where you hang your broom,
Home is where you cook your brew.
Fly on up and sit a spell,
And maybe have a cup or two.
Now I'll have to go put that with my yard of Ghastly fabric so I dond't forget it,lol.
Please enter me in your hat full of names to be drawn for the fabrics from Maddam Sammi, but not the half yard of yours (I already have a yard of that, I just don't have the other fabrics to go with it!!!) Thanks for Sharing your creativity :o)

Carrie P. said...

Well, look what you made with that fun fabric. Very cute.

Chiska said...

Still looking for this fabric line in the UK!!

Jacqueline said...

Here is hoping I take the cute fabric home on my broom stick.

Fantastic - I love the swirly, windy quilting!

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Barb!! Love your wall-hanging! The tree is amazing. And I like the purple. Why not use Annie's idea and stamp your words on the fabric?

Mom C said...

Impressive. Love the quilting too.

Anonymous said...

I love the ghastlie tree - fun fussy cutting!

Beezus said...

Words to add? Are you looking for a saying or just a word or two? Because I think something along the "Ghastlie Family Tree" would work very well with that GORGEOUS tree you've created. :)

Beezus said...

Gah! I commented but it seems to have disappeared, so I'll try again. If you're really looking for words to incorporate, I think something along the lines of "The Ghastlie Family Tree" would work well, especially with that GORGEOUS tree you've created here! :)

tink's mom said...

Wonderfully Ghastlie tree. Great wall hanging. Ms. Selina Ghastlie

Julie said...

I always love to see what you come up with! Nice tree!

Robin (RsIslandCrafts) said...

Wonderful quilt! I love the purple you chose. Brightens everything up nicely.

Sherri said...

Very clever use of the fabric Barb! Perhaps an owl saying "whooooo" or a ghost done with thread painting that is saying "boo!" might work? I can't think of anything more clever to add on your piece! lol

WoolenSails said...

Your quilt is beautiful and love the stitched tree, really creative and unique.
