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!

Working On Another Legend Of Zelda Triforce Quilt!

 

You know what they say, no rest for the wicked! So I must be down right dastardly at the rate I’ve been going. I have my serger which I only allow myself to play for 30 minutes a day until I am all caught up on commissions. I have a queen size quilt and a throw quilt to complete, and here is the queen size I am working on today! One of these days I’ll be all caught up, and then I can do something fun and awesome with my serger, like make 100 change purses in a day! Not sure why I would want to, but damn it, I want to say that I did it! Also, I think I’m going to get the gathering foot for my serger! I want to make something gathered on it, not sure what, but darn it, I want to make it! Now wish me luck so I can get back to sewing like a fiend!

Finished The Duvet Cover

It took me a while, but I made this duvet cover for a customer! I wanted to finish it last night, but I had a date to go on, so I was a bit preoccupied! However, I just finished sewing the velcro on to close up the opening, so I’m quite excited to get this in the mail on Monday! I hope he likes it! It was quite an adventure, this being the first project I used my serger on! It was quite the good investment! I feel like I’m going to be using it a lot!

Finished This Top, Now To Make It Into A Duvet Cover

This one is not actually going to be a quilt, but it is going to be a duvet cover! I’m going to do some light quilting with a back layer of light flannel, and attach baking fabric on the edges to turn it into a duvet cover! I’m really excited, as I have never used a quilt to make a duvet cover before. Thank goodness I have the serger to finish off the inside seams!

I’ve Been Working On 2 Commissions

I recently got 2 commissions for the same quilt. One is an actual quilt,but the other is a duvet cover. I bought the serger, so I do feel better about doing the inside seams now. The other one is a quilt plain and simple. I’ve been cutting quite a bit of fabric, and here are the piles of stuff so far! Hopefully I’ll get some piecing done today! Wish me luck!

Finished Blue Friforce! I Love The Binding!

I finally finished it! I actually finished it this morning, so I’m so relieved about that! The deadline is Friday, so I still had a little bit of time, but I can now relax and know that it is done. I changed up the binding a bit on this one. I think from now on, I’m going to bind these Zelda quilts in whatever color the center is. I think it really ties the whole thing together! What do you think?
