I decided on a color scheme of lime green, purple and orange, along with black and white, and started going through scraps.
When I embark on a project like this, it works well for me to just power through from beginning to end, because scraps seem to take over a lot of space.
These knitting ladies are my MOST favorite of all the Ghastlies.
After I completed the quilt, one foggy day I took it across the street and photographed it the bare branches of my neighbor's tree. I like the "ghostly" trees in the background.
Once I decided to go ahead with the calendar, my cousin, Cathy, and her husband, Terry, told me about their friend who not only restores classic cars, but owns some amazing classics himself. One of them was this bright orange 1939 Ford Delux Coupe. What a beauty! Of course it helps that this is not only one of my favorite shades of orange, but also perfect as the backdrop for a Halloween quilt!
This is definitely one of my favorite combinations of car and quilt. Although I likely say that every month. :)

I do so love your quilt, guess if I am going to make one I had been get on the ball! I think you have the best way of displaying your quilts. Thanks for sharing.
That's THE perfect car for your Ghastlie quilt!!! I love how you worked the selvages into the top too. Not sure I ever noticed that before. I've never made a Halloween quilt. Perhaps I will some year. Right now there are too many other things partly done that need to be finished.
