Lovely work. I do like the Ghastlies. I saw the line on Etsy and thought of all the stories you could make up about them. I didn't buy any though as I didn't think I could bear to cut into it. LOL I know I'm a hopeless case!

I'm so enjoying this Ghastly thing. Thanks for listing the fabrics you used in your quilt. Whether or not I use the same fabrics, I always see fabrics in a project that I don't have and love...and have no idea what they are. Some of your other B & W fabrics fell into that category.
Mini? Can't wait to see that. I have not found the bravery to do mini, yet.
