I may be off my nut, but I absolutely needed to change up these mini Christmas tree quilts by the 5th one or I was going to go completely bonkers.
So I took the very odd Ghastlie Family Reunion fabric by Alexander Henry and made a very odd little quilt.
I won this fabric from Alidiza who was hosting her giveaway on my bloggy friend Kristie's blog OCD: Obsessive Crafting Disorder. (Check out the Ghastlies quilt that she made - so awesome!) I won the fabric in October and by the time I got it, I couldn't get anything together for Halloween.
But people (even strange ones like the Ghastlies) have their family reunions at Christmastime, so I went with it.
I used the creepy tree fabric for the .... creepy Christmas tree.
I used the ornamental white and black and the black and grey for the Christmas tree decorations and the ground.
I used some vintage dusty rose coloured lace that I scored at the Thrift store for the frame.
And of course The Ghastlies in all their weird glory for the edging.
They are so delicious aren't they?
I ran out quickly on Saturday and got some silver and black sequins to sew around the Christmas decorations. I think that was the added touch this quilt needed.
This was a present for Logan and Lane's godparents. I think they will appreciate the oddness of this family and welcome The Ghastlies into their home.
Yup, it's definitely a good thing that I'm done sewing these for this year. I have lost a few screws along the way I'm sure.
Everyone have a terrific.... er ... I mean Ghastlie New Year's!!!!
