Tag Archives: Stitching In The Ditch

Made Some Progress On Carzy Quilt #3

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!

Vikings Quilt: It’s All Done!

I did it! It is complete and ready to be mailed out tomorrow! I’m in love with it! It makes me miss living in Minnesota a little! Not that I’m a football fan or anything, but it just reminds me of Minnesota. I’m super happy I went with gold thread. It really makes the sashing pop!

Final Fantasy Quilt: All Done

I did it! I quilted and bound it! I ended up using a stipple, and before nerds attack me for it, let me explain why. A lot of people told me to stitch in the ditch to keep the blockiness of it, but I did the stipple because I think when they first made the character for the video game, they didn’t intend for him to look pixelated. They wanted him to look like something that was curved and didn’t have corners, so love it or hate it, that was my logic. I love the way it turned out. I ended up using a bright blue tonal binding because I thought it really framed it and brought out the colors from the inside. Anyone have any constructive criticism? I also just uploaded it to my Etsy Shop! (Click Here)

Final Fantasy Quilt: Pinning It!

Since I have to wait until tomorrow for my fabric shipment, I have decided to pin this quilt tonight, and start the quilting! Hopefully I’ll finish it in the next few hours and have pics posted in the morning. I’m just stitching in the ditch on it to accent the blockiness of the 8-bit, but I kind of still want to stipple to round the edges a bit. I’m not sure. Haha. I guess I’ll figure it out soon though! Wish me luck!
