1  Re: 2016 QuiltAlong, now with prizes! in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by sloth003 on: February 08, 2016 06:19:22 PM
Monday Check In!



Today's Discussion Question: Did you make any progress on your Feb quilting goal? Also, what's your sewing room/area/corner like? Do you have a dedicated space or do you move around the house to sew? Feel free to share pictures if you want/have some available.




feb 8 check in



Goals from last week...

Finish two commission tops, tops are done email is sentwrangle the woman to select backings, baste, quilt, bind and get them gone.

Make six tea wallets for husbands aunt cut these out tonight, will get to them after hockey tomorrow afternoon

Make 25-40. (?) double sided zip pouches for Friday for the kiddo's opening night gifts. This one is top priority right now. And i just scored some old school brocade samples for one side, just have to select the modern fabrics for the other. (The play is set in two timelines, Regency and modern, this was his idea)done and delivered for opening night, complete with hand beaded zipper pulls

Start qbs9 blocks.got my examples done...still waiting for signups to close


I have a dedicated sewing room. It is referred to as either the slothcave, girl office or the pit. Depends on the state of mind and being. It has my overly cluttered cork board with block samples and fabric swatches and pics of the kiddo and all my favourite artsy things and creativity boosters. When we designed and built the house hubby gave up a chunk of his office so i could have a nice big fabric closet!

Another  block.  The centre seam  isn't sewn. On purpose. I want room to move for colour placements. And hey, less work for you. Wink

All righty.

Here's one of my patterns made up. BUT. The 3.25" square measure comes up just short of 12.5...



And the 3.5" measure comes up just over.



I don't really care which size. But I do want them all t same size. So. You guys tell me. Want to cut 3.25" or 3.5"...

 Cheesy.Hubby and the bot helped select fabrics.
The bot kept accusing me of "stifling my creativity" when I told him that needed more contrasts.

It was a super fun swap.

The thing that surprised me. Was how well they all blend together
(onc everyone has received I will post the pics I took)


And... speaking of pics...
I received from quaggy!

This is my first finish of 2016.

I put th blocks together from round 8 of the quilt block swap and sashed them with a thin black sashing. And binding.

I gave this to a friend and coworker who got married this fall. He is from Cuba and the colours remind n so much of his personality

10  "Stacked" quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: January 12, 2016 04:47:59 PM
In the most current Quilt Block Swap (round 8... keep your eyes open for round nine) I asked for a simple block called "stacked" in white and batik fabrics.

I got it quilted and bound this afternoon on my new fancy machine.

Also. Finish number 2 2016 Wink
