Baby Quilt Done!

It’s been a pretty busy month! I started getting ready for the Lake County Fair. I’m entering quite a few pieces! The only one I have to finish is the art quilt “It’s Dangerous To Go Alone”, and I’m almost done with that as of this afternoon! Last week I made this baby quilt for a dear friend of mine, and I didn’t want to post it until after the baby shower. So, here it is!

I want make a larger version of this for my couch!

“It’s Dangerous To Go Alone”

I’m almost through with my new piece, “It’s Dangerous To Go Alone”. There is still the silhouette of a little boy walking into the woods that has to be embroidered, but after that, I’ll be picking out backings! Now if I can only get the thing to stay flat! I’ll have to pick up some fusible interfacing for it. I’m really excited! Wish me luck!

A Legend Of Zelda Art Quilt

Last week at my quilt guild, we had Denise Havlan speak about her art quilts, and it was quite inspiring! So Yesterday I decided to get started on one. It’s called “It’s Dangerous To Go Alone”. Eventually it will be the Lost Woods from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I still have to add the trees and then embroider the silhouette of young link walking into the woods alone. Hopefully it will only take a couple more days! Wish me luck!

I Missed Game Of Thrones

I’ve been swing away in my basement all day, and I just noticed how late it was! I missed Game of Thrones, as well as my bed time! I started work on this quilt, it’s a small quilt at 40 inches square, but it’s going to take up a lot of thread! Wish me luck!

Making A Baby Quilt

The border still has to be added, and then quilted, but I’m making good progress on the latest baby quilt. I made one similar to this before, and this one is for a boy, so instead of green, purple, red, and orange, this one crosses the color spectrum from orange to blue, and it’s going to have a camouflage flannel border and backing. Hopefully it wll get quilted and bound today, but  that has to wait until after I run some errands! Wish me luck!

I’ve Got Some Daredevil Towels!

I already made myself a set! Has anyone been watching Daredevil on Netflix? It’s amazing! I know critics said it was just okay, but I really dug this season! I’ve already re-watched it twice! If you haven’t seen it, you really should! It’s kind of funny, because every time I see Charlie Cox, I want him to be saving a falling star. You know? I’m also waiting for Sookie to show up. Just throwing that out there!

In case you want a set:

Bath Towel

Hand Towel

Helping A Friend

 

Everyone remembers the Hexagon Quilt I made, right? Well, my friend wanted to make one and we cut her triangles and laid them out last night. I think it’s looking pretty darn good! She even had enough fabric left over to make 2 matching table toppers. This really makes me want to sew one for myself… Not like I have enough projects. Wish me luck!
