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

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!

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!

Finished Sewing The Top

Lakeville-20130716-00501

 

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!

I think I Know How To Fix It

Lakeville-20130715-00494

As everyone remembers, I was up in a  tizzy over this quilt top, which is for a very dear friend of mine, and I was just upset it wasn’t amazing. Well, I think I remedied the situation. I decided to use a brown for the border to make the center pop quite a bit more, and I really think it does. Once I finished sewing the top together, I’m going to stitch resist it in place and use bleach discharge and then blue fabric paint to make circles, which I think will really make it just that awesome! I hope this all works out as well as I hope, and I really think it will.

How Should I Quilt This?

Frozen Star 2

Later this week or next week, I’m planning on quilting this. I have no idea what to do. Part of me wants to do a simple design, and do grey thread, but then part of me wants to do something with turquoise thread, and just have some wild and crazy fun! What does everyone think I should do?

I Would Be Lying If I Said I Was Thrilled

Lakeville-20130714-00493

I’m working on this piece, and I’m just not in love with it. It’s not that I don’t like it, but I’m just not enchanted with it. I usually fall in love with a quilt once the piecing is almost done, and as I near completion on this quilt top, I find myself says… Meh. It’s nice and all, it really is, but I’m just not all that thrilled with it. I’m kind of tossing around the idea of what to do with a border, and I’m just not sure what to do about it.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

The start of my next project!

Lakeville-20130711-00475

I started my next project. After I picked out the fabric, it just kind of hit me what to do with them. I’m not gonna say exactly what I’m doing, but rest assured, it will be epic! The reason I’m not saying, is because it very well may change by the time I finish it! I’m quite fickle like that!

Frozen Star Gallery Posting!

Right now, at 2:30am I have decided that I really need to work on my gallery and organizing all of my pictures, so here goes nothing!

I’ve decided I will start with “Frozen Star” and I’ll make a gallery for each quilting project, so you can see the transformation from a pile of fabric into an amazing work of art. Well, most of them are works of art. Everyone has an off day! 🙂
