‘The Woods’ Quilt

13 Apr

I’m not typically an earth tone person, but hey, I’ll tell you what… This shit is on hit! It’s made from quilting cotton, and knit acrylic fabric, that I even knit myself at work. I’m really digging the texture it lends this quilt. It also gave me an excuse to use up some brown jelly roll strips I had left over from another project.

Now I just have to find time to quilt it… Wish me luck!

Finished My Batik Charm Quilt Top

21 Jun

nickel

True Love! That’s all I feel for this! I can’t even describe it in words. I had all the charm packs lying around, and I just decided to use them! I don’t know what I was saving them for, but damn it! It looks good! Now, part of me wants to try some funky free motion quilting on it, the other part wants me to use an embroidery motif, and the last part says send it off to be quilted. I’m not sure! Part of me is asking if I trust myself enough to free motion it myself? To be honest, I’m not sure… We’ll see. A dear friend of mine is quilting three quilts for me as we speak… (Well, I think she mounted one on her frame, possibly…) I’m just not sure. I’m sure I’ll figure it out.

Finished: Fire Walk With Me!

It’s no secret to my friends that I love Twin Peaks! This new season is on hit! It’s confusing as hell, but I’m just so damn into it! Anyways, I made this Twin Peaks inspired quilt, called: Fire Walk With Me. And that verbiage is actually what it is quilted with. I used my embroidery machine, and digitized a couple versions of that phrase to stitch through the layers with. I also made a version of the Black Lodge symbol. The one that appears on the green ring. It’s kind of hard to read it all on the front, but on the back is where you can see all of this amazing stitching! I made it for a friend, but she doesn’t know it is for her yet. I think she’ll love it! More pictures after the jump!

My Batik Charm Quilt

I was at work today, contemplating about what the heck to do with all of those charm squares I had decided to start sewing together. Part of me just thought, well just make a giant nickel quilt, but then I have the matching Jelly rolls to play with as well. There were a lot of possibilities, and I think this one is going to work for me! Wish me luck! Maybe I’ll have half the top done by Monday!!!! Fingers crossed!

I have been pulling 60 hour weeks and I need a break! Tonight I dug out this quilt top and laid it out on my table and I’m plotting a way to quilt it! I was thinking stitch in the ditch, but to be honest, I’m not sure. Any suggestions?

My Latest Art Quilt

8 Jan

I took an old quilt background I had lying around and added some applique to it to make it flow more, and I really hated it. I mean, it really sucked to look at. So then I added paint, and more paint, and now I have something I can work with! I think I’m going to call it Flint. Hopefully I’ll have it done soon, and I can show it off!

New Baby Quilt Almost Done

20 Nov

I’ve been really busy on my day off: adding the Zelda scarves to Etsy, putting my new grill together, and now I started piecing this quilt! I love it! It’s so saturated and lively! Now I’m going to add a smokey lavender sashing to it, and add some pink ruffles around the edge! Hopefully I will have it done by the end of the week! Wish me luck!
