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!

Zelda Commission 5: Almost Done

I’m almost done! I did the blue background stippling and I put on the binding. I used a nice medium mottled blue for the binding. I think it ties the fabric blocks together quite nicely with the medium blue thread I used. The only thing left to do is the stippling on the bird. I already have the gold thread picked out, and it’s by my sewing machine waiting for me! I even got a new quilting foot. I’ll post about that later though. Wish me luck!

Zelda Commission 5: Started To Stipple

 

I started the quilting on the Zelda Commission. I’m doing a medium stipple with a bright blue thread for the background, and I’m going to do the bird in yellow. I might do some secondary stipples with a dark blue and a orange, but I’m not sure yet. I want to see how it all blends when it is jut the light blue and the yellow. Hopefully I’ll finish the quilting by tonight… or at least the blue part anyways. I’m trying to be optimistic. It’s my day off from work, and I’ve got a lot of housework!

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!

Confessions Of A Quilt-aholic: I Love Thread

MjAxNC03NmUwZmZiNDIxZDQ2Y2Q0

As all quilters and sewers know, we love fabric! We have collections we call ‘stashes’. I think they are called that because we are always ‘stashing’ it away from our significant others. However, people don’t often talk about the thread they have accumulated. I was going through mine looking for some grey thread to piece with and I realized, “Dang! I have a lot of thread!” I mean a lot! Continue reading
