Just give me 4 days off work!

And I can make good use of them.  A few weeks back I went on a quilt retreat in Keystone. You didn't see too much of what I was working on, by I actually worked on about 3 different projects while I was there. Finishing none of them I might add!  :-)  But with 4 days off work, I was able to finish a few!


This one, is a kit my quilting sista bought me for my birthday. Ohhhh she knows me so well. I fell in love with the Ghastlies last year during our Ghastlie Blog Hop that Madame Samm headed up.

This pattern is "Bricks" from Mountainpeek Creations. (it's linked) The pattern looks completely different with the fabrics you choose. Needless to say, I love the Ghastlie version best though! It's a fast and fun pattern to make. The piecing goes like lightening. What a great quilt to show off those favorite fabrics you have collected! 

But these Ghastlies... 









            who wouldn't just fall in love with these "ghastlie" faces?





Don't ya just want to share a dinner with these guys?
 

Or share in a good knitting bee?? 
Do they call knitting get togethers, a bee?
 
 
All this fun as topped off with a great pantograph called "Pizazz" by Kristin Hoftyzer. It's one I have had in my "pile o pantos" for a very long time, and never used. It was so much fun to do, that I am definitely going to be using it again! It's been a long time since I was able to play with my long arm , and I sure did miss it!
:-)

  1. Oh those Ghastlies are so cute. I like the one knitting (I'm a knitter too). Wish I bought some of that fabric now. I like that quilting pattern too and it goes perfect with the quilt you made.
