Quilting The Triforce – I Love Variegated Thread

I basted and started quilting the Triforce quilt last night. I was going to do the background first, and then the bird and Triforce afterwards, but I was too tired, so I just did the bird and Triforce. I took about one third the time of doing the background, so I end up getting to bed around 3:30am. I have to work at 9:45, so I might be a little tired today, but it is totally worth it! I’ll finish quilting the background tonight, and if I’m luck I can bind it as well, then wash and mail it out on Friday.

Question for my quliter friends: Do you wash your quilts before you give them away?

First Pokeball Quilt Block Is Done… Now Back To Zelda

One black down, and 3 to go. I really like the way this turned out. Next will be the great ball. Well, it might take me a while to finish. I have on the agenda for the weeks leading up to Christmas…

1) Quilt a top I already made

2) Throw size Zelda Quilt

3) Queen Size Tetris Quilt

4) Full size Zelda quilt top

So, there you have it! My list of things to do in three weeks! I know I can, I’ll just have to not be social until after the holidays!

I’m In The Throws Of Pokeballs

I posted the teaser earlier, and here it is. I still have to piece it together because I had to go to work this morning, but now that I am home, I’m going to put on some Jefferson Starship and rock out with my vintage singer. Hopefully I’ll have it pieced later tonight and I’ll post a picture of the finished block. Now to draw up designs for an Ultraball, Greatball, and Masterball. Wish me luck!

Tetris Quilt And Pattern On Etsy

I don’t know why I didn’t put this up sooner, since it has been completed for quite a while, but here is the listing for my Tetris Quilt, as well as my Tetris Quilt Pattern. I’ve been commissioned to make a queen size one for Christmas, so as soon as I do that, I’ll have a pattern for that as well! I hope everyone enjoys these!

Can You Guess The Latest Quilt Of Nerd-dom

I was up super late, like 3 in the morning and I got some random ass inspiration, and I started drawing this up. Then I sat and did the math for the block, and then I picked out some fat quarters and went to town. By 4:30 I had everything cut and I started to lay it down on the table. Can you guess what this partially finished block is? One hint: It’s not a Mario mushroom.

Latest Triforce Quilt Is Getting A Border… If I Could Only Pick One

 

It’s 11:00pm and I’m not sure which fabric to put on as a border. I was leaning towards the one with the fern leaves on the black background, but the grey is really framing it quite well. Any opinions? For those of you that don’t know, Zelda is an amazing video game, and part of it always takes place in the forest, so I’m really leaning towards the fern fabric, but I’m a little worried, because there is a lot of that fabric already in the quilt. What should I do? Or should I go to bed and figure it out tomorrow?

I Pounded Out The Triforce Quilt Top Today… I’m Exhausted

I was a couple of days behind of my sewing projects, until today that is. Now I’m mostly caught up. I have to put on the border, baste and quilt it. So hopefully I’ll get that done over the next 2 days, and then I can start work on my next quilt. I was feeling a little overwhelmed, but now I’m back on track. I can’t believe I spent all day sewing, and also had time to make homemade meatballs, spaghetti and french onion soup.  It was delicious by the way!
