I Finished The Red Zelda Quilt Top

I finished it! Well, the quilt top is finished, but that’s what the customer ordered, so I’m so happy it turned out great! I just love this color pattern! It has already been mailed out, so I can start work on my last quilt before Christmas! Tetris! Wish me luck! Not much sleep for me until after the holidays!

I’ve Been Working Like A Dog..

I’m sorry I haven’t posted much lately. I’ve been sewing like I’m getting paid for it or something… Oh wait, I am… I’ve been sloshed with commissions and I’m down to my final two before Christmas! I actually sewed quite a bit more than what these pictures show, but it is totally amazing and I’ll post those pictures later! Wish me luck!

I Finished A Triforce Throw Quilt… 2 More Before Christmas

 

I know I haven’t posted anything quilt related lately, but I’ve just been so busy. I just finished this the other night and I’m mailing it out today. Now tonight I have to make a Full size quilt top to mail out on Wednesday. Wish me luck!

Busy Day! I finished A Quilt, And Started Another One

I finished it! 3 More Quilts to go by Christmas! I started cutting the fabric for a throw size, so hopefully that will be done by Thursday, and then that leaves me 3 days for a quilt top, and a week for another queen size. I’m going to be running on empty and may not even set foot in my sewing room after the holidays for a bit. Wish me luck!

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?

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!
