I'm tickled to be a part of the Ghastly Ghouls hop, hosted by the fabulous Carol of Just Let Me Quilt.
I have been industriously working to get these projects done and I even impressed myself when I finished all three. 😁
My first project is this cat pillow from Riley Blake's monthly pillow kits. I changed the border, though, so I could use my Crafter's Edge Drunkard's Path dies.
I used the smaller of the 2 die sets, and these made the 3.5" squares called for in the pattern.
However, the fabric included in the kit did not allow me to make the cornerstones in the Drunkard's Path, so I used some of the black fabric left over from the cat.
Below are the dies and some of the blocks, right side up and wrong side up.
This is the Crossover II machine used with the dies and fabric.
I've enjoyed being on the Crafter's Edge Design Team this year and using these products to make so many things. There are many dies and the machine is easy to work. I predict that I'll be using it for a long time.
After a visit to my local quilt shop, Stewart's Sewing in Mt. Zion, IL, and seeing that in their sample pillow they had zigzagged around the cat, I did that as well. Maybe you can see this--makes the cat look a little furry around the edges.
I'm waiting for November's pumpkin pillow to come in so I can make it too.
Next up is my finished Hagatha's House quilt! This was a BOM from Carol of Just Let Me Quilt and Joan of Moosestash Quilting. Their Halloween-crazy group is Cackling Stitches. The quilt was a lot of fun! I did not add part of the border that would have made it longer, so my quilt is square.
I also made it as Quilt-as-you-go. The black "sashing" is actually the joining strips.
Not sure if you can see the pumpkin quilting on the border--I got the idea from someone in the Fall blog hop, and I can't remember who that was, so thank you!!
Here's a right-side-up photo.

I said 3 projects, and here is the last:
This is my Shabby Fabrics Word of the month, done just in time for Halloween. These kits are SEW cute! I have one for Thanksgiving to do for November.
Thanks again to Carol for hosting this hop!
