Sandstorm Quilt Top Done!

Lakeville-20130702-00353

Here it is with the border on! I decided to go with uneven borders. On two of the adjacent sides the border is 2and 3/4 inches, and on the other two sides the border is 5 inches. I really wanted to go for uneven borders after someone mentioned it on my facebook post, that it would add depth. And She was right! I love the way it looks! I was going to go for angled sides, but I decided I liked it the way it was, and I like the squareness of it contrasting with the entropy of the the rest of the top.

I have decided to give this quilt to Quilts of Valor, and I’m not going to lie. It will be hard to part with, because I love it quite a bit. Since I know it is going to a good cause, I can accept with it. I hope whoever receives it will love it as much as I do!

Sandstorm Project Update

I’ve been working on this thing all morning! Well, I dyed my hair at some point too, but for the most part I have been working on this quilt top. It’s taken a lot of effort, but I’m pretty happy with the result. I still have to add a few more strips of the sandstone colored fabric, but once I do that it will be completely done. The sandstone color is also going to be the border, so I’m really excited for it!

I would be lying if I said it was easy. Working with no plan is quite a step away from my comfort zone, but I really like the way it made me think. It made me work on my spontaneity and how to lose control creatively. I really liked it! It’s not my favorite project I’ve done, but it hits the top 10 for sure!

More pictures after the jump!

Shattered Glass

Everyone remembers the nameless quilt, right? Well, as of right now it is no longer nameless. I have decided to call it “Shattered Glass”

Now everyone can see where it started out at, and how it ended up. It was quite a transformation and it did take some thinking, but I made this quilt look darn sexy! The real reason I changed it was because the person it was for didn’t seem too enthused when I showed it to her. She liked it and all, but there was no WOW factor and I could see she was hoping for one. It took some time, but I decided I couldn’t give her a boring quilt. It had to be WOW! I took time thinking about all of the things I could do to it, and then it hit me to take the border inside the quilt top and make it part of the quilt, and so that is exactly what I did. It took some time to figure out how I was going to do that, and I just decided to go for Random and fun, and sure enough it worked out! I sure am glad it worked out, I had quite a bit of anxiety about cutting into a quilt top I had made, but now everything is the better for it!

Frozen Star Gallery Posting!

Right now, at 2:30am I have decided that I really need to work on my gallery and organizing all of my pictures, so here goes nothing!

I’ve decided I will start with “Frozen Star” and I’ll make a gallery for each quilting project, so you can see the transformation from a pile of fabric into an amazing work of art. Well, most of them are works of art. Everyone has an off day! 🙂
