  1. Math and I are not always the best of friends either. WIP are always fun to see, so I am happy you shared yours. I think the Ghastlie family in the windows would be a nice way to showcase their ghastliness.

  2. Window Ghastlies are good. Math can be tricky, but it's just like quilting...measure twice, cut once. It works eventually! Kd ~ www.KdQuilts.com

  3. Love the roof line -- fun stuff!! And I agree -- the windows would be the perfect place for say, Sebastian to show up!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Love the house... and all the best patterns get re-calculated. Can't wait to see it when it's done.

  5. oo I think the ghastlies would look great in the windows!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Your math makes me dizzy! LOL - Anything involving a lot of math, I usually leave to someone else!
    Your project will be very cute - I like the idea of the characters peeking out of the windows!

  7. WIP's are always fun.... and the windows are a great place for the Ghastlies!

  8. Oh yes, I think having some Ghastlies looking out of the window would be a great idea.

  9. I would put them in the window. Go with your gut for sure. Thank you.

  10. haha, the math problem is wellknown here. EQ 7 does this tricky part of designing, LOVE it

  11. I think you are starting out strong. Love the roof. Hope to see the finished project!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Adding windows would be an awesome idea. I can't wait to see the finished product, and I think you did a wonderful job with the roof. :)

    Don't feel bad about the math, I'm no where near good with math and suck at it big time. LOL I have to do it many times to make sure it's correct. So I do know how you feel about that.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Had to laugh at your math issues. I say I do just fine with math, but on some days Quilters Math really kicks my butt...and I can never figure out what went wrong the first three times! go figure...or not!
    I like the start, and agree it would look good with peeks into the windows of who is inside...and maybe even the creepy guy with the invisible dog Peeping Tom-ing in from the outside. I'll check back to see what you come up with. I love all the inspiration on this hop! Thanks :o)

    ReplyDelete
  14. You're a brave woman - doing math like that! :-) I can't wait to see the GHASTLIES poking their heads through the windows!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thanks for being part of the blog and sharing. We all have WIP and man the math fails me and I thought i was good at it! haha. Love the Ghastlies!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm just the same with maths so I leave the calculations to someone else!! it's looking good though!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I like the house. Can't wait to see your ghastlies looking through windows!

    I like patterns so i don't have to do the math!

    ReplyDelete
  18. The windows a great place for the ghastlies and maybe the cat on the roof! thanks!

  19. Dear Tammy Ghastly
    I love your house! Its perfectly ghastly :)
    Great job, thanks for sharing.
    I am now a follower of your blog!
    cheers

  20. That is about how I end up designing, then I realize it doesn't work, lol.
    But I hate ripping out and giving up, so I just keep going and make it work;)
    I love the idea of applique houses, using the characters and objects in the window, it would be so fun.

  21. I love your ghastly house. It would be great to have some ghastlies peeking out the windows. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

    ReplyDelete
  22. There she is our Mrs Tammy Ghastlie...and my doodles look like that too...what do you know...and yes you need some Sebastians and Prudence somewhere...but a great WIP...it has a lot of potential..ghastlie potential yes lol

    ReplyDelete
  23. Fussy cutting is just what your Ghastlie house needs. Maybe Edward Scissorhands can help. If we had to be a math whiz, some of us would never quilt. Funny in HS they had a class called "Bonehead Math". There's a Ghastlie thought, the Skelton could do the Math on your Quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  24. It looks like the whole ghastlie crew is hanging out in the dungeon in the basement! Creeeeepy!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Window peeps is the thing for sure. Ghastlies peering out through the gloom and doom of Ghastlieville. One can never have too many roof lines or windows. I'll bet cobwebs abound within the walls of your Ghastlie Mansion. Keep up the good work and will be back to see the progress!!! Sqeeee I am so Ghastlie excited.

    ReplyDelete
  26. very creative!! I think a few Ghastlies peeking out the windows would just be the icing on the cake for your project!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Very creative idea, I think some family members peeking out of windows would be great!

    ReplyDelete
  28. You are on the right track and I think this WIP will be a great finished project by Halloween! Peeking in windows and seeing the Ghastlies peering back!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love your house and your math looks like mine. I like the idea of the windows too. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  30. ghastlies in the windows and maybe one peeking around the corner.
    Love the idea of the mystery of waiting till Monday night.
    Would that be 9pm in which time zone?
    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Math? Did you use math??? LOL I mess up so much with my figurin' it out math, sometimes I have to keep measuring and cutting up paper patterns until I get it right.
    The house looks wonderful
    and windows would be nice,
    Keep on figurin'
    so you don't cut twice!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I was never a math whiz either! Love the idea of the Ghastlies peeking out of the windows!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hey, it's Ghastlie progress--looking good!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Very cute - it won't be a WIP for very long - so much fun!

    ReplyDelete
  35. i like your ghastlie house. I´m waiting to see all your ghastlies to looking out through the windows.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love your Ghastlie house!! They need to be looking out the windows, peeking around the house....maybe one up on the chimney?

  38. Very cute and I agree-some ghastlies in the window will complete it.

    ReplyDelete
  39. You're well on your way to a perfectly Ghastlie block. Ghastlies in the windows would be stellar.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thanks for sharing your WIP. Ghastlies in the windows sounds perfect to me!

    ReplyDelete
  41. We must have gone to the same math school! Can't wait to see the finished project.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love your honesty. My math calculations usually look about the same and I got A's in math in HS. Finished project is going to be great.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I calculate many times also. Looking forward to seeing the results.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Include a cat and a spiderweb - Ghastlie potential. Judy C

  45. I am glad to see that others face some of the same planning challenges as me!

  46. If I had a dollar for every time my math skills failed me in sewing, I'd have enough money to hire someone to do my math for me! It's looking great though! Love the house!

    ReplyDelete
  47. So very cute! I wouldn't have gotten that far with the math at all, so you're doing better than me!

    Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  48. What a cute little house perfect for the Ghastlie family. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  49. You are too funny with the math genius part. Sounds just like me. I am so far from being any sort of math genius myself that I can totally understand. The funny thing is that all three of my boys are extremely good at math and even stranger all three are left handed which has obviously nothing to do with math but yea, none of them take after Mom. LOL

    Your block, forgetting the math part, turned out super cute. You got much further than I would have. Mine would have looked like a 5 yr old had created the pattern. haha

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hehe :D Looks like my quilting math. ;D

    ReplyDelete
  51. LOL! Enjoyed your post. Your house is going to be great!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Yup I think the ghastlies should be in the windows. Math makes me a bit crazy too.

    ReplyDelete
  53. OH, that looks just like my scribbling. I haven't done so much math since I got out of college. Just tryint to figure out all those 1/4 in. seams and then the size of the design! Good luck and I think you're made a great start. Characters in windows, yup, sounds good. Happy Halloween

    ReplyDelete
  54. SEW creative!! Well done!

  55. Love the house and like your idea of putting them in windows. Maybe even sashing between them would look like windows.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love the roof line--very Ghastlie!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love the roof ine and the chimney. I would put the Ghastlies in the windows too, and maybe frame them. Shutters?

    ReplyDelete
  58. I was a math major and later math teacher, and I make mistakes sometimes too. I like your idea of the Ghastlies to be in the windows. The Ghastlie roof line could be a place for maybe a few ghastlie trees in addition to the stovepipe. Love your house and like they say on tv, it has great bones!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Wonderful idea for a quilt. Math is not my forte, also I'm not creative enough to make a pattern. Great Ghastlie blog, thanks! ;->

    ReplyDelete
  60. how ghastlie! a wip to follow! have made a note to tune in at that time!

    ReplyDelete
  61. what a ghastlie house (or should I say Manor)

    ReplyDelete
  62. What a great house pattern! Fun idea to put the ghastlies in the windows.

    ReplyDelete
  63. The windows definitely need some Ghastlies. I think I'd do some fussy cutting and then applique. That is simply a ghastlie block!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Windows with Ghastlies for sure! Looking good so far...

    ReplyDelete
  65. Oh, I like that wonky house!! Yes, Ghastlie's in the windows would be fun!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Not sure exactly but it would certainly include fussy cuts because this fabric is just too precious!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Love the crooked chimney the best! Ghastlies in the windows are a natural!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Love love love the crooked little house for the Ghastlies

    ReplyDelete
  69. wow this is super fun! I think putting Ghastlies in the windows would be a great idea!!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I like your idea of having ghastlies peek out the windows and I like your crooked chimney. Can't wait to see how you finish this.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I think Ghastlies in the window would be perfect....either that or your math calculations :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Yeah the math is a bit tedious, it's much more fun to sew all the pieces together.
    Great job on the house with crooked chimney.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Ohh I don't like doing math either. hehe. Your block looks fine. I'd put a few of the characters in the windows. I think that would look great. Looking forward to seeing the end product.

  74. I suffer as one of those who is math challenged, so I can feel the pain. I think the figures in the windows would be darling. I can just see the little faces looking out. Thanks for a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Can't wait to see you work in progress when completed. Looks great right now know that is going to be over the Ghastlie top!

  77. Yippie, someone else who is mathematically challenged. I'm glad I'm not the only one.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Very cute. I tried to figure the math for a square-in-a-square set on point border and gave up. I ended up leaving a section of the border plain around the corners so I could still have my border. I could have called my daughter (the college math teacher) but I was too embarrassed, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  79. How cute!! I love it!! Don't worry about the math. I think we all do that!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Sounds like a plan! Love what you have so far! Have a Ghastlie Day! :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Enjoyed you post. I'll go along with the others and say yes! Ghastlies in the windows! Math is my weakness, too.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Oh yes, ghastlies in the windows! And that is an awesome roof line!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Math is my enemy. Put in window defiantly.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Another clever Ghastlie creation. I am in love with these Ghastlies. Thank you for participating in this amazing Ghastlie Super Party.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Oh, such a cute house! Adorable!! Yes, I'd love to see their faces peeking through the windows! Skip the math, it looks like it's evolving just fine!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Great job. I might have put in a full moon with Sebastian in front of it or a bat flying across it (witch sillouette? - well they do sport some witch hats and brooms!) Great idea and thank you for sharing your cute design. I could see that rooftop and house design being used for a quilt of family photos. Thank you and Madame Samm for another amazing idea.

    ReplyDelete

  90. Such a fun quilt! I understand about the math...I always have to call my math teacher friend when I am trying to re-size a quilt or draft one. Can't wait to see the finished result!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
