Gone But Not Forgotten

14 Jul

Sorry I have been gone for so long. I have some amazing things coming up, but can’t quite talk about them yet. I’ve been working on my Anthems quilt(s). Embroidering a few towels for customers. Going to work conventions for my day job…

It’s been a long week and a half, but I’ll have time to catch up this weekend! Looking forward to sharing more with all of you guys out there!

Wish me luck!

Made Some Textured Fabric

4 Jul

When you can’t find any textured fabric for your next art quilt, go make some! Well, obviously I cheated and used the industrial knit machines at work. I just needed something to add some texture to my anthems quilt! Wish me luck!

Started Work On My Anthems Quilt

27 Jun

It’s getting wild in my sewing room! I have so many projects and only so many machines. Someone please buy me another Viking ruby so I can get more work done. I don’t know where I would put it, but I would figure it out. Anyways, I’ve been pounding some embroidery out for this quilt, and it’s going… where? I’m not sure, but it is going somewhere! I’m getting some of the more decorative stuff done during the week, after work, so Sunday I can sit down and pound out the quilt top. I can tell you my anthem for quilt is Kate Bush – Running Up That Hill. Wish me luck!

Midnight Secret Quilt – Progress

26 Jun

q1

It’s taking some time, but it’s getting there. I have about 50 more stars to embroider, and then I can bind it. I miss stippling. So much faster, but this does look way cooler.

The plan is, and I use the term ‘plan’ loosely, to release all of my embroidered quilting motifs online. Fingers crossed I’ll get around to it soon. We’re creeping up on the busy season at work, and I would like to get all of that out before I start working 60 hours a week again. Wish me luck!

I’ve got stars for days! I’ve got about 70 more to put on, so this might be a while, but I can binge netflix while I do it, so I can’t complain too much. I’ve even got a beautiful backing for it! I’ll post another picture on Sunday with the progress. Wish me luck! Continue reading

Finished My Batik Charm Quilt Top

21 Jun

True Love! That’s all I feel for this! I can’t even describe it in words. I had all the charm packs lying around, and I just decided to use them! I don’t know what I was saving them for, but damn it! It looks good! Now, part of me wants to try some funky free motion quilting on it, the other part wants me to use an embroidery motif, and the last part says send it off to be quilted. I’m not sure! Part of me is asking if I trust myself enough to free motion it myself? To be honest, I’m not sure… We’ll see. A dear friend of mine is quilting three quilts for me as we speak… (Well, I think she mounted one on her frame, possibly…) I’m just not sure. I’m sure I’ll figure it out.

I’ve been swamped on social media this last week, so I did not get as much done as I would like to. The BBC article and interview were great, and we’re really getting the message that bullying is not okay out there. Well, I’m off to work! I’ll post when I get home! Wish me luck!

-Interview with one of the creators of Threads of Resistance

-Quilting Another Strip Quilt (Using My Embroidery Machine) (This is the Top)

-Update on Responses to The BBC Article (Read It If You Haven’t)

  • A lot of people who shared the articles in groups have had it deleted. Just an FYI.

-I Fished My Batik Charm Quilt top, so I’ll post that later too.
