Where are my Ghoul Friends?


School is back in session and life is hectic but it’s never too hectic to come out to play with the wonderful Carol from justletmequilt.com!

I love playing along with the Halloween hop even though, gasp! I don’t usually end up decorating for Halloween. My oldest has a birthday just before and I didn’t want to overshadow her birthday. And then, I’d usually decide not to decorate because it was just for a few days…most years, carved pumpkins decorating the porch and lots of candy was our contribution to the festivities.

So, over the last few years, I’ve made quite a few lovely projects that I wouldn’t have made without the annual hop.

Now, I say “made” but a bunch of these are tops. I think I better plan to finish them up and do some seasonal decorating next year!

For this year, I decided to dust of the witches’ hats and see what I could do.

Fabric auditions!

Turns out, you really can have hundreds of yards of fabric and STILL not have the one you need! After extensive fabric auditions, I headed to the store because nothing was working!

Nope, nope and “Don’t call us, we’ll call you!”

The right one made all the difference. My apologies for the bad lighting….but I didn’t get the borders on until after dark…

They say you put a bit of yourself into whatever you sew and here’s me…

A crazy cat lady witch!

By the way, do you recognize the purple border from the reject pile? It was not destined for lattice but I think it’s nice as a border. The rich purples with gold and floating instruments remind me of the Haunted Mansion.

So, let’s set a goal for next year… I’ll add a photo of my bed dressed in a Halloween quilt next year..maybe after that, I’ll be inspired to make that Christmas quilt I’ve been dreaming of! One holiday at a time, right? Do you think a Thanksgiving quilt is a requirement? Hmmmm….. I’ll have to think on that one!

Please be sure to check out all my ghoul friends… they’ve been turning up the spooky this week! And be sure to stop by justletmequilt.com and thank Carol for putting this on!

  1. Wonderful projects! I especially love the patchwork and star BOO quilt and the pumpkin pillow. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Great projects! I’m looking forward to seeing that Halloween on your bed next year. :o)

  3. Hi Beth! HAHA – I love the title of your post!! I am the same about Halloween and not really decorating, and probably for the exact same reason. My birthday is right before the 31st. Now that I have some littles in my life, my perspective has changed a bit! It’s all about the costumes and candy so I do decorate a little more. Boy howdy, you speak the truth!! With hundreds of fabrics to choose from, why is it that we don’t have the EXACT one we need?!!! That really brought a giggle out of me this morning! I will accept your challenge for next year. You finish your witches hat quilt top, which is very cute and witchy! I’ll make a wall hanging or something using the glow-in-the-dark fabric a friend sent me. {{Hugs}} Nice job! ~smile~ Roseanne

  4. Great projects! The purple border really works on the quilt.

  5. I’m here Ghoul Friend…love that title! Not having the exact fabric needed is always baffling to me when I look at my fabric stash. It just doesn’t seem possible to not have what I need in all that fabric. Your green was a great choice and I love, love all the witches hats in your quilt. You definitely met the Ghastly Ghoul challenge with this one! Thanks for sharing!

  12. All great projects. I kind of like the witches hats quilt the best. The border fabric you chose does look really good.

  13. Great job putting those witches hats together. I always love to work on ufo’s for blog hops. It’s such a feeling of accomplishment. Good luck with those holiday bed quilts! I can’t wait to see them all.
