1  Laura's Celebration quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: Today at 05:57:17 PM
My friend Laura celebrated her 20 year recovery (whoohoo)
 anniversary last fall. She hosted a party at a park near her home... six hours and a different country from where I am.
I had started a new job and didn't figure in asking for a weekend off so I sent my best wishes and told her hubs and I wouldn't be there. Fast forward. Work scheduled released and I had not only the Friday but right thru til the Tuesday off. So! ROAD TRIP!

I.didnt tell her we were coming or that I had spent a day making signature blocks for her. After getting  lost in upstate new york and adding two hours to our trip we finally made it. she was taking off for a hike when she saw us... it took a minute to recognise. And there were some happy tears.

Then some more after our trek up the mountain and back to the gazebo... here I had set up a markers and block station. all in all I managed to get blocks sent to her friends all over the us and Canada to include in this. She hasn't seen the finished product but it is in the mail. Hopefully to arrive for her birthday.

2  for those about to poop! a rock star baby quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: January 20, 2015 02:59:30 PM
So one of my imaginary friends (people I only know online) asked me a while ago to make a "metal" baby quilt. Something with 80's metal themes or skulls or flames... this is what my graph paper and I came up with.

It turns out. It is for another imaginary friend who is expecting her first  Smiley

White. Polka dot. For me.
This came from a sewing room cleaning frenzy' I cleaned my sewing
 room Dec 30/31 so I could start the new year tidy. I found in my progress that I had a WHOLE bunch of white material.
And I also found my dye kit. My previously unused dye kit cause I was afraid of chemicals and possibly having to explain to hubby why his lovely counter tops seems streaked green. Smiley

So I bit the bullet. I mixed up some chemicals. I tied and teased and twisted fabric. I soaked and sprayed and played. 24 hours later I had these.

My attempt at 'polka dots' I didn't say it was 100%sucessful. Cheesy

Yellow 'shibori' style folds. Notice the green... yeah 0-2 that was accidental transfer from a puddle of blue.

Blue and grey 'shibori' style this one mostly came out as I wanted.Smiley

Two smooshed patterns. I love these two.

This was an experimental wrap and tie. I kind like how it came out.

Accordion style pleat fold with loose tie segments.

And lastly. Some mystery fabric. It's got some sort on in it. But something else. The colours are much less bright and... crisp? it's a faded washed look. Unintentional but cool nonetheless.

So all in all I destashed about 2m of white...I learned not to be afraid of dye. and I got myself a bunch of new fat quarters for quilting! Smiley

The top for 2014 is done. I just have to find the right backing. Smiley

2015s plan is slightly more complicated. But hubby got to write code and design a wee computers program and hook up Web cams and laptops to assist in daily observations.
It's going to be sunsets. In a rail fence pattern... except so far, all my sunsets have been overcast.  Undecided

I don't have a problem with finishes. I just now have 11 baby quilts and six fill lap quilts with no homes.

I did start my 2015 list. Smiley

And here they are.



And because I know you guys will appreciate this like not many in my 3D world do. My half meter and fat quarters.

7  from the lap quilt swap of 2009 in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: December 09, 2014 06:30:27 AM
I finished! This was my oldest top. And now it's a quilt! This one took forever to quilt. Not sure if it's cause I was sick? It seemed to never end. But then it did.

9 of 15 tops quilted.

 Binding tomorrow.

 Next week. Finish the other 6.

 Then. The commission I've been putting off. Unless I miraculously find a pre Christmas commission. Cheesy

Complete with glowing eyed cat holding down the sad finish from earlier this week. It's going home tonight.

10  a sad finish (embroidered menagerie) in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: November 18, 2014 06:42:01 AM
A friend of mine asked me a few weeks back if I could finish a quilt her dad had started for her son. It's a huge animal quilt. All the blocks are intricate machine embroidered animals. She had found it while cleaning up some space for her mom to move back into once she is released from the hospital Sad.

The day I started working on it her mom was released From the ICU and admitted to a rehab wing at the hospital Smiley the day I started quilting it her dad was admitted to the ICU. Sad  And when I was binding it. She texted me he had passed away.   Cry now I don't know what to do. I'm hesitant to hand it over when all of this pain is so fresh. I don't know if it would help or hurt more.

A few of my fav blocks.
