Making The Mesh For Distortion – A Prayer For Zachary

img_20180209_211303909.jpg

I’m totally cheating with my embroidery machine! It does the best applique! And for this project, it’s perfect. It’s almost comedic to look in my sewing room right now. It’s covered in ribbon, fabric scraps, thread, and starch based glue. I just buy Elmer’s by the gallon. They sell it at Walmart for like 10 dollars, and goodness knows I’m using it by the gallon. ‘A Prayer For Zachary’ did have to take a back seat this week with the blizzard we had, and I got a throat infection. It’s like this avian flu just won’t leave me alone. Don’t get sick, it’s for the birds… Literally! (More Pictures after the jump.)

Back to making this netting and tulle to distort the view of this quilt… Continue reading

Midnight Secret Quilt – Progress

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!

Hell’s Kitchen: Quilting Finished

IMG_20170618_124126785.jpg

IT took a while, and there are a few mistakes, but damn it, it looks good! This is the quilt that was quilted with my embroidery machine. There are a few vertical lines quilted into it, because I really wanted to keep the vertical aspects of the buildings evident. I’m just so in love with it, but now I cannot find a binding I like. I might have to go and get some solid black. (Don’t ask why I’m out of it; I have clearly been slacking on my inventory.) Well, now that I get to see it when it is done, I love the way the embroidery motif looks! It took about 20 hours to quilt it, but you know, it was totally worth it! I can’t wait to finish it, so I can take pictures of it to enter in shows.
