Finished TJ’s Zelda Quilt Top

Lakeville-20130707-00435

Even though I am sick, I have managed to finished sewing this top! I couldn’t stand looking at it anymore in the state of a half finished top in pieces on my floor. My allergies are acting up, and my eyes keep watering, so watching the sewing machine was a little much for me, so I had to finish it in parts, and only sew one or two seams at a time. It was kind of nice though to be able to catch up on some of my Netflix dvds that came in the mail this week. ‘The Man With The Iron Fists’ was pretty darn good! I’m not usually one for action movies, but it was pretty entertaining.

I’m sure people are more interested in how I sewed this beautiful creation, and less interested in what movies I like to watch. So, I sewed the diagonal strips together with the squares. Then I ironed all of the strips with the seams in opposite directions from each strip. So every other one had the seams facing down, and the other ones had the seams facing up. I think just started sewing them on my machine and a couple dozen seams later. Here it is in almost all of it’s glory. I still have to quilt it. Haha.

Look What I Unearthed!

Lakeville-20130707-00443

Look what I found today! This was actually the second quilt top I made, and I need to quilt it soon! It’s been put together for almost a year now. The reason I made this actually was because I has started a quilt for my Cousin and I was cutting the fabric while watching new episodes of Dr. Who on Netflix, had I had mis-cut about 5 fat quarters of fabric, and I was pretty upset. I didn’t even want to look at her quilt fabric anymore. I decided I needed a break from her quilt and I made this one! It only took me 2 days to make, because I was so worked up over cutting all of her fabric wrong. I channeled all of the rage into making this quilt.

When I made it I had no idea who I was going to give it to. I was just making it to take my mind off of the other quilt. After I made it, I decided to just hold on to it. I finally figured out who I am going to give it to. It is going to a dear friend of mine. I’ve been friends with her daughter since freshman year of college. She also quilts, but she does everything by hand. I do not know if I have the dexterity or the patience for that. Anyways, I just wanted to share this with everyone!

I’m On Reddit!

That’s correct! I’m on Reddit! I started one yesterday, and already I got a few likes! So far my most popular is Frozen Star, and I also have Sandstorm, and TJ’s Quilt on there! I got a few upvotes, and I’ve had a nice increase in traffic from Reddit. So, I cannot really complain! I also have been working on TJ’s quilt! Here are some updated pictures! I still have a headache, so I haven’t been working at full speed. Focusing on the sewing needle is a little hard on my eyes right now, so I’ve been working on getting my internet presence and branding up and running. Reddit has proved quite helpful, and I’m really excited for all of the quilting boards I’ve been hitting it! People really like my work, and I’m very happy to share it with everyone who will look at it. I am even working on getting a gallery showing for my work for next summer going! No guarantees, but it’s in the works!
