My Day In The Creatin' In The Sticks Black And White Blog Hop

Carla at Creatin' In The Sticks had such a fun idea when she planned this blog hop.
All we had to do is make something in black and white...I love it!

Sewing Circle 
with Ghastlie fabric


Thank you, Carla, for hosting the Black and White Blog Hop!


Sewing with "A Ghastlie Craft" black and white fabric worked out perfectly with
the "Sewing Circle" quilt pattern. I like it even without the Ghastlies in it!
Ghastlie fabric is by Alexander Henry.
You can find the "Sewing Circle" pattern in Just Let Me Quilt's Etsy store HERE.


*The spider is optional


The Ghastlie family makes me smile!






 It's kind of scary, but I feel so at home with them.


You won't want to miss one blog visit in this amazing black and white blog hop.
Prepare to be inspired!


As always, I use my favorite Heat n Bond EZ Print Lite sheets for my applique.

The ghastlies are always fun, but I like the impact of the plain black and white squares and circles.

Right there with you when it comes to anything Ghastlie. Great group to bring to the party. This is a great pattern. So very versatile, will need to add it to my must do collection. Wonderful start to the hop.

Great way to use that Ghastlieness. My fabric like that is on the shelf. I made 3 good sized Ghastlie quilts last year...Which Ghastlied me out for awhile. 😚

Lorna McMahon said...

Those Gastlies are lovely and especially against that red couch. And the Sewing Circle pattern is a great pattern for showing them off! Nicely done!

Lesley said...

That is such a cute idea. I am a complete Ghastlie fan too so this really calls my name. Cute quilt design too!

Daryl @ Patchouli Moon Studio said...

Such fun fabric! Reminds me of the Addams Family. I didn't know they were still making Ghastlies. I guess I should visit the quilt shop more, but I have too much fabric already. Love your quilt!

Susan-Sharon Passmore said...

Great project! I enjoyed how your pattern helps us focus on each individual family memeber. What a lovely way to begin the Black & White hop!

Great quilt. Love your pattern.

Carol said...

Love this pattern and the Ghastlies are perfect for it. Thanks for sharing.

Anita Jackson @ Domestic Felicity said...

I love Heat n Bond Lite for all those applique projects. They tend to be my favorite even though they seem to take me much longer to work on. Great quilt! Those faces...hahaha

Jane Holbrook said...

Like your other fans, I, too, love the ghastlies. My kind of friends! I don't recall who designed that line and wish you had mentioned it. I am recently being drawn into fusible applique and definitely like the convenience of printable s, though I am going to use regular paper back fusible first because that is what I already have on hand.

And black and white? So modern and appealing. Thanks for the blog post and thanks for the inspiration.

Suzy Webster said...

Love the ghastlies and the quilt. You are so right that it is beautiful with or without them, but I kind of prefer with them. What a fun B&W hop quilt you have presented

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I;m a huge fan of the Ghastlies and just love how you played with this design and those fabrics = perfect B&W project!

Deonn said...

Whaaat? Ghastlies AND sewing motifs?? Ohmiheck, so stinkin cute, Carol! Love the design.

Carla said...

Oh, Carol, this is so Ghastlie good. When I decided on the theme of this hop, it was with you in mind. You put black and white together so often with your pops of red. I knew you would rock this one and start us off perfectly. Thank you for joining the B&W Hop. You are an all-star!

Brenda @ Songbird Designs said...

This is such a cool take on black and white! It'll look great on a sewing room wall.

Mary Ann said...

We love the Ghastlies too. My daughter has made at least six quilts from them and has this latest line (in color) in the queue. I will have to show her this for sure. Thanks for sharing. It's great.

Susan said...

Great pattern!

Diane Cloyd said...

Thank you for the quilting ideas for Black and White. I love your quilt and I love your use of the Halloween material.

That is such an AWESOME quilt!!! I'm going to give that Heat N Bond product a try, thank you for sharing. P.S. Definitely keeping the spider!

Karrin Hurd said...

What a great project! Thanks for sharing!

Theresa said...

I love this Carol! My sewing is in the basement and is from time to time a little spider in with notions. lol

tubakk said...

What a fun, and a bit scary, quilt.

allthingzsewn said...

I haven't seen this particular fabricdesign before, I thought making they stopped the ghastlies a couple of years ago. Very cute guilt.


Suze said...

Carol, I know I can always count on you for an adorable quilt. You sure have started this hop off with a great quilt. Seeing those large scissors, I think that's a message that I need to get my locks cut and donated again for a kid to have a wig. Before I began chemo 14 years ago, I had my waist length hair cut and donated it for kids to have wigs. The lady told me that it was long enough and thick enough for probably two kids to have wigs. Since then I've had very short curly hair and then I decided to grow my hair again. It's a small thing I can do even though it's not as thick to give to a child. Now that I'm older, I usually wear it twisted and up. The curl sure is a challenge for tangles. Now I'll think about your quilt and giggle. Thanks for a great start to the hop.

Cecilia said...

Thank you for sharing your cute quilt.

The Joyful Quilter said...

Your little black and white quilt worked great for the hop!

Joanne said...

This is such a fun quilt and the Ghastlies are perfect!

Susan said...

Anyone who knits, uses scissors, and appears crafty is comfortable. LOL It's just a lot of fun to see those fabrics in that quilt.

Marian said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! Oh my gosh, this would so be me too... Awesome, just awesome Carol. I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to get to everyone on this hop... Been busy catchin up on email all week. :)
