Dual Star: It’s Starting To Bloom

27 Jan

So last night I started my next quilting project. I’m already in love with the way the background it shaping up. Now just to add the bursts of color! I’m so in love with it! I decided to use all different browns and tans as I think it adds some major texture! Fingers crossed it turns out okay!

Dual Star: A New Kind Of Blooming 9 Patch

26 Jan

So everyone remembers Frozen Star. Well this is kind of like that, but different. Instead of one star, it’s going to be two. The background if going to be tan and brown. I’m not sure if I’m going to make both stars the same color or make each star a different color. What do you guys think? I’m either going to do both stars in turquoise, or one purple and one turquoise.

New Quilt Design

27 Nov

As I said earlier in a post, I did quite a few random quilt designs while in the hospital. I decided to take a break from sewing and to throw this design onto paint to see how it would look. It still needs some work. I might modify the 9 patch blocks to make the ripples appear rounder. I’m not quite sure yet. It is supposed to be a pebble being skipped across the water, so I would do dark blue and indigo fabrics for the dark water, light blue for the ripples, and then applique a pebble in the one corner. What does everyone think? Try to ignore the obvious grid.

Finished The Quilting!

Omigosh! That appointment for my Psychiatrist was much longer than I had expected it to be, and my whole afternoon was shot! I got home around 4:00 and made some dinner. (I heated up some left over gyros.) I right away jumped on my machine and finished this beast of a quilt! I love the way it turned out, and later tonight, I will put on the binding! First, I suppose I should find a binding to put on it… To the Fabric Bins! Huzzah!

Finished The Quilting… Almost

26 Nov

So, I ended up staying up way too late last night, and then didn’t even get out of bed until 10:00am. Slacker! However, I did finish the quilting. Well, almost all of the quilting. I decided to quilt with purple thread and then do the quilting of the last layer in blue just to make everything pop! I think it will look great! Here’s what I’ve gotten so far!

Time To Start The Quilting!

25 Nov

Now that I warmed up and did that table topper, I have to get cracking on this throw quilt so I can have it ready for the next craft fair I am entered in on this Saturday. I’m still not too sure how I am quilting it, but I’m just going to have to make a last minute executive decision when it is on the machine! Wish me luck! Looking at it though, I’m going to have to steam out some wrinkles first. Then I’ll quilt it!

I just finished sewing the top. Now that it is done, I’m trying to plan out the logistics of how I’m going to dye it. Not sure on the design yet, but I have a few plans. I need to find my upholstery thread! I’m definitely thinking of doing something radiating from the center. Then maybe blue on the 9 patch squares to make them pop!
