Dotty For Dresdens

It wouldn't be October if I didn't whip up something Ghastly!  Since I've been on a roll with the Dresden plates I decided that was what was missing from my Ghastlies collection.

I'm out of practice so I didn't remember to take pictures of my process.  This is another one made using the Easy Dresden Ruler by EZ Quilting.  I dug thru my stash of Ghastlies and Spellbound and chose a mix of fussy cuts and all-over prints for the wedges.

I wanted this to match my Ghastly Beauty pillow so I stuck with the same background fabric and again used Aurifil's Lana wool to quilt it.  I love the extra dimension the chunky thread adds.

It's been awhile since I did a zippered pillow cover so I needed to review my favorite zipper installation tutorial by s.o.t.a.k handmade.  Still the best one out there!

And here are the Ghastly siblings together.  I feel like I did a better job using fabrics that contrast on this one.

  And now we have a Ghastly entrance ready for trick or treaters...  enter if you dare!
