Crazy Quilt 1: Quilting Is Done!

I did it! I finally finished the quilting on my crazy quilt! This is probably one of the longest projects I have ever done. I don;t even want to think about how much thread was used! It was only half mine anyways. I did about half of the work at work, so that was at least nice. I cannot wait to put on the buttons. I even have them all picked out already! Hopefully it will be done by the end of next week! The next one is going to be blacks, and greys with red thread and sashing. I’m so excited!

Binding is On Miss A’s Quilt

Lakeville-20130720-00516

As I type this, the quilt of which we speak is in the dryer! I’m really excited to see it once all of the fabric once all of the sizing is washed out! I love a quilt out of the wash after I quilt it. The way it gets all crumpled and looks like something you want to cuddle up with on a stormy night while watching your favorite movie. In my case, Malice In Wonderland. However this quilt is not for me, so I digress.

For this quilt I chose to do a bright green binding just to make it more fun, and a little brighter. I was going to do a pink binding, but I think the green made it pop out more and just adds a sense of levity to the quilt. After all, it is for a toddler!

Quilting Is Done On Miss A’s Quilt

Lakeville-20130720-00515

It is official! The quilting is done on Miss A’s Quilt! I’m not sure about everyone else, but I feel rather accomplished. I decided to go with the zig-zag theme of the bargello pattern I did, and then in the border I just wanted some fun asymmetrical lines and angles. I wanted the border to contract the symmetry on the body of the quilt. All in all, I think I did a good job! I’m really happy I chose the blue thread, and I really enjoyed the way it came out. However, on a more comedic note, When Miss A’s mom saw me pinning the quilt, she asked about the backing. I chose a hideous flannel that has a plaid print on it. She asked if I ran out of matching fabric. I told her I chose this fabric for 3 reason. 1) I had it… 2) It’s super soft… 3) It’s going to be so ironic! Miss A is a super sassy toddler, so I feel like when she gets older she will appreciate the irony of it all! I hope so anyways!

Miss A’s Quilt Is Pinned

Lakeville-20130719-00506

I finally got around to pinning Miss A’s Quilt. I know! It took me all day. I lost all of my pins! It took me 2 hours to find them! What had happened was, I had hidden them at one point when Miss A herself had come downstairs to come and say hi to me. She wandered down into my room and I had the container they were in on the floor because I had just unpinned a quilt. When she picked up the container I through it in a drawer and forgot about it. It took me a while to find it. So, I wasted most of the day trying to find the pins, and now that I finished pinning it, I think I will quilt it later tonight.

Quilting Design For Miss A’s Quilt

I think after a whole day of deliberation, and besides, it was too hot to do anything productive today. Between the stagnant air, and my lackadaisical attitude today, nothing really got done except some online work I had to do. But, between the periods of laziness, I did manage to draw out a design for the quilting on Miss A’s quilt. I really wanted to add to the bargello design, so I decided to do diagonals and then I’ll do something fun on the border. Not sure what that is yet, but we’ll see.

Miss A's Quilt with design

On to my next project!

Now that I finished sewing the Quilt Top for Vicki, and I’m not sure how to dye it yet, so I think I will move on to my next project. That is the quilting work for the Quilt for Miss A! I think I’m just going to stitch in the ditch for the body and then do something with a little more fun for the border. Not sure yet, but I’ll sleep on it and come up with something supper!

New Projects!

This picture embodies how I feel when my Roommate comes downstairs to say hi.

Now that I’m three weeks in to building a website following, I can focus more on quilting and less on tinkering with the settings. Yay for more time for quilting! This means I have a new laundry list of projects to handle! Hooray!

The List:

Quilt for Vicki! This one is a blooming 9 patch from browns to blues. If I did a normal blooming 9 patch, it would be fun, but not very exciting! I’m not sure how I’m going to spice up the design, but I’ll work on that in the back of my head!

Possibly a commission. Still talking to the person requesting it, so we’ll see about that one.

Have to quilt the Top’s for Miss A, My Muse Miss S, and my best friend TJ, and the one for Quilts of Valor.

I have my Mad Men themed quilt, that is going to be hung in my living room. Not sure on what kind of design yet, but I’m always thinking about that.

Picked A Border For Miss A’s Quilt

Lakeville-20130705-00408

As everyone knows, I did the body of the quilt 2 days ago. Since then I have had a hard time picking out what color to do for the border. At first, I wanted something that would tie in with the colors already in the quilt. Then I thought I really didn’t want something to take away from the center, so I had to scratch that idea. Then I thought I might do black, but then I remembered it was for a toddler, so maybe stay away from the black. Then I thought about doing this smokey violet, and I fell in love! I hope that everyone else likes it as much as I do
