The Ghastlie Dresden Is Quilted

I got my Dresden quilt back from Quilted Works who did a great job quilting it, as usual.
The back has black minky on it which will be warm and snuggly next Halloween.

I love the quilted flowers!

Meet my new doll, Frankie Stein, from Monster High...Ghouls Rule!

When I saw this type of doll on a post at Freemotion by the River...I HAD to have one!

While I waited for it to be quilted, I prepared the binding and then stored it on
these old fashioned clothespins. It rolls up so nice and neat!


Last weekend one of my daughter's came to visit and sewed herself a quilt.
It was fun teaching her some tricks about sewing and quilting.

I rolled her binding, too!

I use the spindle pins too. Oh, I think those dolls are dreadful. As much as I love Ghastlie fabrics - those dolls are too creepy to even have with a project.

I love your Ghastilie quilt. It is so stunning. The idea of the cloth pins to save the binding is very good. Pity we don´t have that kind of pins in Sweden.

Your Ghastlie turned out great. Perfect doll to go with it too! I use clothespins for storing my hand embroidery thread because I usually don't make my binding until I am ready to sew it on the quilt or I would store it that way too.

Sandy said...

Love the clothespin idea! Your dresden turned out beautiful!

The Ghastlie quilt is awesome. I never heard of those dolls. I'm sure she'll be making another appearance for the Wicked Blog Hop 2014. Love the idea of using a clothespin for binding.
