1  july scrap. whew I made it! in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: July 27, 2015 05:40:09 PM
I wasn't sure this one was going to get done this month. I've been CRAZY with work and when I'm not working I'm running away to to woods. (and not to mention the sewing room was unusable after my miserable winter of haunted quilts)

So I had two day off. In a row this week. Yesterday I cleaned the sewing room. And last night I made the top. And today I quilted and bound it. Smiley

Sometimes quilts tell me where they want to go live while I'm working on them. This one, last night wanted to to to K's house. This afternoon. It said "no. I wanna go live with T" now I don't know what to do.

Sloth, I want your fabric budget! Or maybe just your fabric stash Smiley

The budget was a one off. I finished six really bad commission memory quilts last month. At one point i considered bringing in a shaman, a priest and a monk just to get this place cleaned out.  There was some very bad juju...
 I decided that all of the cheque would go to the sewing room and this "run away from home" shop hop/camp around the province vacation.  And when i was home. (And the sewing room is clean) i plan on making a quilt to donate to either the Canadian Mental Health Association or a suicide prevention organization or a drug rehab group.  As my own personal clearing out of the bad vibes.

And come at my stash, prepare to fight. Wink i like my stash more than i like most people. Cheesy

On another note! Yay WIFI!!

This is my Icky thump. As you can see mixed patterns and fabrics are aok.  The placement of the colour is what im after.  For the light purple... Think grey based lavendar types opposed to pinkish based lilacs... Blue is dark, from basic blue thru navy. Black and grey are either tone on tone patterns, solids or lightly patterned with white or grey or black.

This is how I find it easiest to chart my paper piecings

And for those who want to see the results of twelve hundred kilometers  and four days and 15 quilts shops... It looks something like this. (You'd need to add another 48 fq's... What? Shocked there was a sale shelf!( 2 bucks each!) and i was underbudget)

4  june scrap quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: June 10, 2015 08:46:27 PM
You'd think I'd start running out of scraps. At least bug enough to cut...but I still have tons to go. Smiley

June's quilt didn't quite work as envisioned. But as we all know. Done is better than perfect. Wink

I may have time to get another scrap done this month I hope. I have my brain set on some dresdens...

I had swapped with our fearless leader in the past... and I hadn't forgotten what an amazing crafter she is. Here's all my proof... two examples of edel's mad stencil skills. Tshirts for me!

Two examples of hand stamped fabrics. The patrician quill. And the librarian. I have plans for a minute huge pencil case with the quill fabric. And likely a set of book covers with the librarian. Smiley
A feeble pouch for raiding.

And finally the most amazing painting. The standard death. The colours and brush work on this is fantastic. And it is in a safe place until I can frame it or seal it before it goes to my laundry/loo gallery wall.

7  wicca inspired fairy quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: April 28, 2015 06:06:26 AM
I have an awesome cousin. She has had a rough go for a couple of years. And this popped into my head fully fleshed out.

I scoured the Internet to make sure I was right in order of things and conferred with a pagan friend.

The four elements are loosely in the compass direction they would be placed in. (earth=north). The phase of the Moon is also in the associated element. And they glow in the freaking dark! (Yay fabric paint) also the freezer paper stencilled fairies (glitter fabric paint) are loosely masculine or feminine in appearance and are also in the element they are related to. Smiley

The back was a blue and green circle pattern that made me think of old school fairy rings and I used purple bobbin thread. Some of my reading let me think that purple was associated with the 'spirit' element that ties the other four together. I thought it was fitting.

Was delivered Saturday. And I'm pretty sure it will be well loved. I mean her hubby try to claim it first. Wink

Some close up picks of some of the paper piecing. And traditional blocks.

8  RedOrangeYellow quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: April 13, 2015 07:38:34 PM
This one can't technically go in my April scrap quilt thread. I mean I made it in April. And 98%of it came out of my scrap bin. But I did have to pull a couple extra red solids for variety.

Two inch squares. Ending up at 40x60inches . Squiggly quilting along the verticals.

This is just the unironed top but the colour is better. Wink

9  April showers... bring more scrap bin quilts in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: April 13, 2015 11:37:52 AM
So next in my yearly challenge of making a scrap quilt a month out if the bins. Here is what I have so far in April.  I have been ridiculously sick with the flu and sat in the couch cutting squares.

This one didn't turn out quite like I imagined. It happens. I had hoped the different size blocks would stand out more.

This one was a Facebook give away.

And this one was going to be abandoned as a free for the taking but I think it let me know where it wants to go live.
I will update as more scrap quilts come from the bins. I'm working on a RedOrangeYellow one right now.Wink

10  crazy quilt of orphan blocks in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: March 27, 2015 10:50:28 AM
Most quilters end up with spare blocks. Either the wrong size. Or colour. Or an experiment gone wrong. Or a complete math fail with angles.

This is what happens when you pick them all up off the floor, rummage them out of bags and put em all together.

The back and binding were also pieced and scrap. From other projects.
It's big and bold and the entire time I've been working on it. It's been telling where it wants to go live. Hopefully I can drop it off tonight.
