Creepy Carol's Cottage Is Open For Tours

It's the last day of the frightfully fun "Ghastly Ghouls" blog hop...can't we keep it going? I guess not, but it has been spell-binding to see what amazing projects were made. I heard cackles of joy and wails of delight all week!


Some of the nicest people I know have been known to call me "Creepy Carol" because of my love for Halloween. At least I think that's why they call me that! Hmmm...maybe I better look into that. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to call my "Ghastly Ghouls" blog hop project "Creepy Carol's Cottage" after those nice friends of mine. 

50" x 56"


The fabrics in the quilt are from Benartex: "Halloween Party" by Kanvas Studios, Superior Solids, Wide Wave Texture, and Cotton Shot. 

 What's my favorite in the "Halloween Party"? 
Scaredy Cat...it's purple with black cats. What's not to love!
Star Party Lime is a very close second.


I love fancy dresses and black cats! 


A candelabra to light my path and a shiny ghost to keep me company on dark and stormy nights


The Cotton Shot Pearl Wedding Cake fabric shines


Potions and bones for my magical concoctions


Spooky eyes watch over those Scaredy Cat orange heels


Boots are a must for party nights!


My crystal ball keeps me informed about the future of blog hops...all is good!


This is my dream cottage!


The rat likes my spare broom the best


This is my favorite broom for nightly flights over Las Vegas


The cauldron is brewing a special potion and my stockings are hung to dry


Every respectable witch has a magical hat for special occasions


I love the 108" Benartex Wide Wave Texture for the quilt back


You can find the pattern for Creepy Carol's Cottage in my Etsy Store HERE.


Most of the applique was made using a "Halloween Party" fat quarter bundle. Guess what! Benartex has offered a giveaway of the same fat quarters I used in Creepy Carol's Cottage. How cool is that...thank you, Benartex! My little friend isn't sure he wants to share, but I'll convince him to not croak about it.


Winner!


Giveaway ends at midnight EST on October 26. 

Look at all my creepy, crawly friends who are posting their creations:

Oooooh, you should go into dress designing! I'd love to swish around in your creations. Those long, lean boots remind me of Morticia Adams' boots. :) I can envision a whole neighborhood of "dream" houses like that and I want to live right in the middle of them all!!!! It's a great quilt and the fabric just works with it all. Thanks for another great hop. Just made my week seeing all the cool stuff. Happy Halloween!!!
