Mums for Melissa — “a Ghastly” Quilt

I promised a version of Mums for Melissa, our new pattern, made from Alexander Henry Ghastlies fabric to our Facebook fans over a week ago… It’s just a flimsy quilt top at this point (piecing a fussy-cut Ghastlies back for it, too):

I knew early in the development of this pattern that I wanted to make a version from my (ahem) sizeable collection of Ghastlies fabrics. I’m not sure Trina trusted that it would turn out until she saw it made up:

And there are more than just Alexander Henry Fabrics in there… there’s a little of Tula Pink’s Nightshade, some Michael Miller Button Up, Riley Blake, Art Gallery Fabrics, and Moda scraps in the blocks.

My focus print is from “A Ghastlie Reunion”, a more recent release of the fabric line (the first collection came out in 2009, and yes, some of my fabrics are from that release).  The inner border is from the Haunted Mansion line by Sanae for Moda, the same one I used on my Ghastlies Portrait Placemats:

It reminds me of flocked wallpaper but with SPIDERS! (Trina and I both have a weakness for Halloween Fabrics).

So, what will you make your version of Mums For Melissa out of?  Be sure to join our Flickr group and share your creations there!

Until next time, Happy Quilting!
