Today is my turn for Joan's Gremlins, Goblins, and Ghouls hop. Maybe I have a few creepy things to share, but some are just fun.
First off, with a little help from Crafter's Edge, I cut out and appliqued these shapes on 2 towels.
The circle die is from Crafter's Edge circle die set.
And then I used an Accuquilt die for the bat and cat. Did you know you can use Accuquilt dies on the Crossover II machine? There are directions for doing so.
I used my trusty machine blanket stitch to applique around each figure. Worked like a charm.
Next up is a wool hand project. This is a small piece, about 8 x 16, I think. I hand-appliqued all the wool shapes onto the background and hand stitched the embroidery on the borders, which was also the quilting. I don't remember the name of the pattern...
I also made Scrabble Jack. I gave the pattern away, so I don't know the designer.
This guy uses the interfacing that has the squares marked on it, but if I were doing it over again, I would forget about using that and just cut 2" squares instead of the 1 7/8" ones that were in the directions.
The raffia, buttons, and scrabble pieces are hot-glued onto Jack.
I see that I should have cropped this photo a little, but it works.
Not spooky but fun is the Riley Blake pumpkin pillow cover kit. I love these Riley Blake kits. Behind this pillow is my Hagatha's House quilt from last year. I love this quilt!
Lastly is my little ghost. I read the book The Little Ghost Who Was a Quilt by Riel Nason to my quilt group (Cerro Gordo Quilters) and had them make a ghost wall hanging (thanks to Sharon, head of an Arkansas quilt group for the idea). Ahead of time, I asked them to make a patchwork about 8 x 10". I brought backgrounds (12 x 15") and borders for them to choose from. They didn't know what they were making until I read them the book. Below is my quilt ghost. This is a wonderful story about being different.
Ok, I can't resist one more. Here is our youngest little pumpkin (i.e., grandchild). Sydney is 9 1/2 months old and a real joy, full of smiles, and happy most of the time. She has 3 big sisters to keep up with.

Pinker n' Punkin Quilting & Stitching
All really nice projects. I really love the pillows.ReplyDelete
Towels are such a fun way to change up the decor. Great idea for Halloween. OK, that story looks so sweet and I love your ghost. I just went and ordered that book. I think we need it in our library for the Grands. Speaking of grands, what a cutie you have and what a sweet little Halloween outfit too.ReplyDelete
What a great group of projects! I really love the towels and the Scrabble Jack!ReplyDelete
Love all your projects and your sweet little grand daughter!ReplyDelete
Oh I do love those hand towels. What a fun idea to use scrabble blocks as pumpkin teeth. I spotted your Hagatha's House quilt right away! Such wonderful Halloween delights, but I have to say Sydney stole the show! LOL!! My new grandson is due to arrive October 29 and I can't wait!ReplyDelete
Amazing array of projects. Awesome to be able to use the Accuquilt dies on the Crossover it opens up a whole new library of dies to explore!ReplyDelete
Lots of great projects, love your little pumpkin.ReplyDelete
I bought something like that Scrabble Jack at a quilt shop one year. I think it is a witch. It has been sitting and put away because it said to use the prepared interfacing. I did not know what that meant. Thanks for the tip. I will have to locate it and see how I can make it just using my own interfacing. Very fun Halloween projects!ReplyDelete
Great projects, and adorable grandbaby! Love the towels. Thanks so much for sharing!ReplyDelete
So many cute quilts, but that little pumpkin at the end is just darling! What a sweet smile!ReplyDelete
Those are great towels for Halloween! I like that Jack with the Scrabble teeth too. Lots of fun projects and a cutie pie smiling in her pumpkin outfit too!ReplyDelete
So many Halloween beauties here! I love that last little cute pumpkin, too. Thanks for sharing all the fun and inspiring ideas!ReplyDelete
All your projects are great! The youngest pumpkin is sure a cutie!ReplyDelete

You have shared some great projects, Jack scrabble ,a real hit, but the program you arranged for your guild caught my heart. We are all different, and recognizing and then celebrating the differences is such an act of love and kindness. Kudos to youReplyDelete
So many great projects! They are all wonderful! You have peaked my interest now, and I will have to read that book about the quilted ghost.ReplyDelete
And the picture of your granddaughter is adorable!
Great projects! Thanks for sharing. My favorite is the adorable little pumpkin. 🙂ReplyDelete
