Work On A Scrappy Chenille Throw Pillow

30 Sep

I had a theory! I was going to post a tutorial for chenille pillows, but I really wanted to see if I could make one with my scraps. I put them all down, and sewed on the bias, so now I’m just waiting to wash it to see if it turns out okay. I wanted to do a chenille pillow with more texture, and I think I’ve got it! I’ll post a picture of it washed sometime later this week, as well as a tutorial for both!

Working On My Latest Crazy Quilt

13 Sep

I finally got back to work on this beautiful piece of color atrocity! I just love it! It is just so bright and annoying! I’m not sure how large I am going to make it, but I’m thinking I’ll make it a larger size throw quilt. Maybe 70″ by 70″. Just a thought! I’ve still got to add a few more embellishments to it. Any idea what else I can add to it?

My Modern Crazy Quilt Is Coming Together!

28 Jul

Here goes nothing! I’ve been randomly piecing this thing together all night. I’ve also been watching the Paradise on Netflix, so it was a long and interesting night. I hope everyone likes it! My class meets next Wednesday so I still need to do a little more work on it! Wish me luck!

Made Some Progress On Carzy Quilt #3

15 Jul

I was up late last night working on this tedious beautiful quilt. I love doing crazy quilts, but they take so long to do! I mean, I can work around the puckering of the fabric because of the decorative stitches, but the rub is doing all of these decorative stitches. It is a nice way to use up some thread I didn’t have enough of to do whole projects with at least. At least it is great for mindless sewing work to watch TV during! Speaking of TV, did anyone watch this week’s True Blood??? I think it is starting to get good, and it is about time!

Working On My Third Crazy Quilt

13 Jul

I’m spending my day off working on my crazy quilt for the class I am teaching. I’m currently adding in different strips of color to add size and to add some variety of the rainbow to it. I’m really glad I added that gold to it, it really makes it pop quite a bit! Now to cut and sew in all different directions for the rest of the afternoon! Wish me luck! Maybe I’ll take a break an make a throw pillow at some point!

I Am Officially Done With Crazy Quilt Number 2!

24 Jun

I did it! It’s all done! Took me quite a while, but It is all done, and I already gave it to my boss as a birthday present! It is only a couple of months late, but oh well. Crafters and sewists who give gifts understand. I mean, I still have my one cousin’s wedding present to finish quilting, and it has only been a year or so… maybe 2 years, but who is counting! Not me! I just love crazy quilts! I cannot wait to work on my new one. It’s going to be greens, purples, and browns! I’m just so excited! I did tons of free motions work, and lots of embroideries! I’m just really stoked about the way it turned out! I used a red binding to make it pop, and a blur background to be ironic! What does everyone think?

Working On The Quilting For My Second Crazy Quilt

14 Jun

I’m quilting this masterpiece, and I’ve done stippling, quilting decorative stitches, some fancy heirloom quilting, and now I’m just adding more thread! I really think there has to at least by 3000 yards in this quilt. That’s kind of a lot of thread isn’t it?
