It's An Eerie Night Blog Hop For Me With Giveaways

Halloween stuff is definitely spooky and creepy, which is why I'm loving the Eerie Nights Blog Hop.

I get so excited about Halloween!

There are lots of amazing and delightfully Halloweenish stuff being shared!
A HUGE thank you goes to 
Marian from SEAMS TO BE SEW and 

My whole family are huge fans of the television series
THE WALKING DEAD
We love, love, love it!
Yes, we are definitely a bit creepy. No, the Monkey Boys don't get to watch it.
We're not happy with the Season 7 opening show, but we'll survive.

With that show in mind, I created a Beware of Walkers wall hanging using Robert Kaufman's "Blood Type" fabric that I picked up while out shopping with my nine year old Monkey Boy.
He thought it was so cool!
Then I used my new-to-me Silhouette Cameo to cut out the shapes and letters.
They had WALKERS...better known as zombies...for downloading. That was exciting for me!
The Silhouette made cutting them out much easier!


These two chihuahuas might have been victims of walkers.


A little Deco Foil gave it the appropriate "bloody" look.
(The sun didn't cooperate to show off the shine, but trust me it looks bloody wet.)
I painted some Deco Foil Transfer Adhesive on the "blood", covered it with parchment paper,
and ironed it. After waiting until it was cool, I removed the foil. Shiny!


There's two giveaways...one from me and one from Timeless Treasures.

If you win the giveaway from Timeless Treasures, you'll receive a surprise holiday bundle.
Thanks Timeless Treasures for such an amazing giveaway!



I have a sweet little bundle of Deco Foil products for the winner of my giveaway.
(Check out ThermOWeb's blog for ideas on how to use it.)

All you have to do to enter my giveaway is to leave a short and creepy/sweet comment.
Giveaway ends at 12 PM October 28, 2016.

There's a Winner!

    ReplyDelete

  24. I think those skeleton Chihuahuas could nibble on your toes as you sew your next amazing quilt
    I like this one very much.
    Halloween is scary with all of those zombies lurking around

    ReplyDelete
  25. Shiny blood.....brilliant Carol ! LOL What an imagination you have girlfriend ! This quilt needs to go down in the scary hallowen quilt history books !

    ReplyDelete
  26. That looks creepy, and I mean that in a good way. The silhouettes are a nice touch and the foil blood finishes it off nicely. I don't have the chihuahuas but I have skeleton cats, buzzard, rats, dog, crows in my graveyard in the front yard. I love this time of year.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Fun project! Didn't quite know this dark side of you before.......

    ReplyDelete
  29. That's the perfect quilt to cuddle under while watching your favorite show. Your walking dead along the bottom are a perfect detail. I love how you've got blood everywhere in your photo.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  45. We love the Walking Dead too-haven't missed a show yet-so sad last week, they can't be killing off all the original cast-what's that about? Anyway, love your quilt, thanks for the idea about the shiny! Thank you, Susan

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thanks for sharing what you created for the blog hop. Who knew there was fabric that resembles blood splatter.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Very cool nice job on the blood...... happyness04431@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  48. I don't watch that one, but I AM a fan of iZombie on Netflix. Except there have been a couple of scenes lately I could have lived without. Love your quilt, and the foiling adds a special nice touch. So funny with the dog skeletons in the photo!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Walking Dead got a bit too creepy for me this season. I like the 'Quilting Dead' though! Of course the two skellie pups make it all better. Thanks for the giveaways. :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Ok, I didn't know all this about you! Your header on the blog is just the greatest graphic. I love your quilt, even though I'm not a "scary movie" person. I really like Deco Foil, and learn so many new things to do with it. Thanks, so much.
    When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
    May luck be yours on Halloween.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I don't think it gets any shorter or creepier than those chihuahua skeletons! You certainly have the Halloween spirit. Thanks for being part of the blog hop.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I thought your quilt was very original, slightly creepy but also fun! Made me smile today.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Love your wall hanging. Huge fan of zombies in general, & TWD in particular, & that wall hanging couldn't be more perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Very creative and very creepy! I usually go for the sweeter side of Halloween -- no scary stuff for me!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  67. Very creative, I really like it.

    ReplyDelete
  68. My teens are into the Walking Dead, but not me! I've never used Deco Foil but it looks like something I need to try!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Wow so creative! I was proud of myself for just making a Halloween wall hanging-now I feel like a slacker! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  70. Fun! I hadn't thought about making a zombie quilt, or using deco foil for shiny blood spills. Great ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  71. What a fantastic quilt! My husband and eldest son would LOVE it. They enjoy watching the show together on Netflix when my son's college schedule allows the time.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Thanks, carol. Love the creepy quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Okay, where did you get the chihuahua skeletons? And the blood on the rock, road and other spots--is that a Photoshop doctoring? And finally, what is a Silhouette Cameo?

    ReplyDelete
  74. Love the zombie quilt. I didn't know anything about deco foil until now. I just watched a video about how to apply it to fabric. It's very easy to use.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Very original! I'm new to quilting and love seeing all the Fandom projects that are bold and exciting beyond the traditional quilts of the past. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Totally awesome! I love it! Thanks!

    Please click on the delaineelliott above for my email link.

    ReplyDelete
  77. What an awesome idea! Scary, but not enough to creep the little ones out when they come trick or treating. Just perfect! I've never used the Deco Foil myself, but it seems perfect for this project. If I win, I can't wait to give it a go!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Even without the sun, the quilt is creepy, eerily, (can I say) "disgusting"? The Silhouette machine was a perfect idea for those figures - wouldn't be so easy to cut by hand. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Deco Foil is a product I've wanted to use for a while now and after seeing your drippy, creepy, sticky blood on your quilt, I know I need to get some soon! Such fun!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Too very creative...and creepy. But I love it! That Deco Foil rocks.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I am really looking forward to this spooktacular blog hop!!!

    ReplyDelete

  83. Blood type fabric is something else! Never saw it before! Looks realistic!

    ReplyDelete
  84. What an awesome quilt idea! Now I have to go ck out the Silhouette library for some "walkers" for myself...

    ReplyDelete
  85. I don't watch The Walking Dead - it is just to creepy for me. Your quilt turned out good!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Very Clever to use the Deco Foil to make the blood look wet! I've never used Deco Foil before but it looks like it would work great in a lot of projects.

    ReplyDelete
  87. This is creepy... in a good way... Great quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Ahh Carol, this is so great. Love what you did with the fabric. Perfect design!!
