Ghastlie Inspiration Projects

Welcome to this Ghastlie Blog Hop

Madame Samm one day said, "let's have a Ghastlie Blog Hop" (or something like that), so here we are, doing just that!  How fun!
My project ideas started with this Ghastlie Tea Party


Which is right now currently serving up a tutorial over at Sew We Quilt.  I'm over there giving away all my little secrets for rubber stamping on fabric.  It's quite easy and extremely fun...check it out when you're finished here.  You can find my paper piecing tutorial and this fun border stripe tutorial over there on the right side of my blog listed under Tutorials.

I can't really even take credit for this next project.  In my tutorial  for that fun stripe border I showed how I use one of my mug rugs as an ironing pad while I do small paper pieced projects using my "iron on a stick" for pressing the seams.  Madame Samm honed right in on that!  So this ghastlie ironing pad (larger than a mug rug) is for right next to your sewing machine for those mini pressing jobs...well, soon it will be right next to Samm's machine for her mini pressing jobs.

Next, is a mug rug for your mug and snack.  Somehow I've ended up with an extra mug rug so, when you make comments here today and you mention you'd like to have this mug rug,

you will have a chance to win this ghastlie mug rug...and I doubt that it will travel alone.  In fact, it will travel with this ghastlie postcard of the Ghastlie Knitters.
And here is finally my quite involved Ghastlie project that is still a work in progress.  I've no clue what possessed me to create this tedious applique monster.  Yes, every letter is individually cut and raw edge appliqued to the background.  It had to be done, I'd already decided.  All the while stitching I kept wondering what I was punishing myself for.


Each character was cut from the orange background fabric and fused to that fun thin line black and white fabric and again, raw edge appliqued. 
It's a 36" circle and intended as a table mat.  I suppose it could be placed on the floor as well, but I don't at the moment have a floor that nobody walks on.  This is not the design that I started out with.  That one didn't work out.  So, this one is still evolving...there will yet be some bats and pumpkins for color and maybe another bird, and after that...well, who knows at this point.  I just keep plugging along with it.

The ghastlies are not necessarily a Halloween themed fabric, but that's how they always play out in my mind.  They live amongst us every day, but they really fit in during our Halloween fun.
Now don't forget if you leave a comment here for me, I will draw one name to send over to Madame Samm to enter in today's grand prize drawing on her blog and I'll draw another name as the winner of my Ghastlie mug rug and postcard.

I'd love it if you'd add yourself to my collage of followers at the top of my blog...you'd look so cool up there!

Here is today's ghastlie line up of blogs to hop:

                          Mrs. Annie Ghastlie (You are here) 

Have a ghastlie good time on this Ghastlie Blog Hop!
Thank you so much for visiting today.

  4. Annie, I echo Madame Samm: You are awesomely creative. And that you would share it so freely with folks like me that you'll likely never see, well,its unbelievable. Adding the words and the ravens and trees are frosting on the...table mat! Hoping you will show it off when its all done!

  9. Love the teacup idea - maybe the Alexander Henry crew can take this to teacup manufacturers - good quality fine bone china Ghastlie Cups and Mugs - positively ghastlie! The circle quilt is going to be quite the talking point. Have a ghastly day.

  144. the mini ironing mat is such a fabulous idea! i love the mug rug - of course i'd love to have it - the quilting is perfect on it!

    but really, your table mat is AMAZING! oh, it's incredible. it's totally worth all of the applique! the wonky trees with the crows/ravens are awesome, though if you didn't have them there, it would be an awesome tree skirt for a halloween tree (what, you don't have a halloween tree? must just be me!).

    ReplyDelete
  145. This was a great tutorial on printing on fabric and then I looked at some of the tutorials on your blog. Fabulous ideas! Thank you.
    And of course, love Aurafil thread and a new iron is beyond my dreams.

  148. I must try the stamping on fabrics. Such a great idea.

    ReplyDelete
  149. I would love your Ghastlie mug rug. This fabric is the most-fun fabric I've ever seen. Most "fun" fabrics, I think, are along the line of juvenile prints so this Ghastlie line stands alone. I love your idea of the ironing pad and must make one for myself. I'll be watching to see your completed table topper. It does sound like punishment - maybe it's penance for the 'future'! My husband's always telling me he's apologizing ahead of time for when he does something tomorrow, next week, or next year!! :)

    did you draw your own template for paper piecing the teacups?
    I am working on a Ghastlies quilt but have lots of fabric left over and am thankful for your inspirational creativity. I love text in quilting fabric and am very intrigued by your addition of your own words with the stamps - will definitely explore this.

  174. I saw your tut on Sew WE Quilt. I am puzzled about "fussy" cutting. If you haven't explained it already, could you? I'm off to look at your posts to see if I can find out just what that means...
    Thanks
