“A Prayer For Zachary” Blocks Are Almost Done

1 Feb

This was no easy task, but it is almost done. A couple pieces still need to be added here and there, but for the most part, the base of the blocks are done. Now to start adding texture with the tulle, netting, ribbon, and lace. I’m going through a lot of water soluble stabilizer, but I think the results will be ridiculously awesome! You can see some of the white circles are already starting to show up on the quilt blocks. In those spots I took the tulle, ribbon, scraps, netting, and what not, and stitched it down to the blocks.

My sashing comes in tomorrow, and you bet I’ll start adding it on my day off! I’m very excited! Wish me luck!

My Latest Project: “A Prayer For Zachary”

27 Jan

You all remember the scarves I made from scraps I’ve been posting about, well here is a quilt in the same vein. I sewed some squares I had from previous projects together into 25″ squares, then took a bunch of scraps I had and started sewing them down onto the panels. It was not easy to make this happen without stiffening the hell out of my fabric. I didn’t want to use and kind of permanent stabilizer because I do want this as a bed quilt, so instead, I got creative… Continue reading

More Scarves From More Scraps

I’ve been a busy little sewer! Well, at least I’m trying to be. When I started making these scarves out of my scraps I had no idea how much fun they would be! I have a green one currently in the works, as well as a pink one, but they still need to have the topper put on, and sewn more. The only trick is, you have to stitch enough to secure everything in place, but not too much to make it too stiff. It’s a little tricky finding the right amount, but once you get the hang of it, it’s so much fun.

I have all of these scraps from the commissions I used to do. At first, I figured I would make one last Zelda quilt to sell, but decided to do something else with them. I’m working on a project called “A Prayer”. I’m not ready to say who the prayer is for, but as soon as I am, I’ll tell you the full name of the quilt. Until then, just enjoy all of the lovely green fabric I have lying around!

2018: The Year I Tackle My Scraps…

10 Jan

That’s my goal for the year! I’m hitting my scrap pile hard! I started making some of those simple scrap scarves using water soluble stabilizer. It’s been a blast! I’ll admit, it takes a while to do all that sewing, but it’s totally worth it. Besides, is mostly mindless sewing, so at least it goes by quickly. 

Here are some close ups before and after I washed one, and some of a red/purple/brown one I’m making tonight…
