1  Collaborative scrap strip quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: April 16, 2014 02:36:13 PM
After finishing the last round of the Quilt block swap (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=430851.0#axzz2z5SpsAn6) i kind of fell in love with the technique for these blocks.(http://www.twomoreseconds.com/2011/03/blogging-process-my-3x6-bee-blocks.html
While i was recuperating from a possible mild concussion (self inflicted at hockey  Embarrassed) i decided the scrap bins were OUT OF CONTROL. And since it was low thinking easy work and easy to abandon when the headache started, i sorted them by colour. Fast forward nine hours over three days and i had tidy sorted scrap bags. But LOTS of them.

So stumped for a colour palette. I asked my facebook list. What their favourite colour was. This is the result. More or less in order how they came in.  There are a few blocks that. Were from actual conversations with people but i tried as much as possible to order them in properly. Smiley i was going to send this somewhere else to live.

But as i was pinning it i just couldnt let it pass. Im the only one who know which block is my cousins, or which one is the kid from the curling club. And it uses that absolute last wee scraps of the "all you need is love" word fabric that i love love love. So im keeping it. Now i have 14 quilts in my living room. Cheesy

The sad thing. I still have ooooodles of scraps. I. Think ill make another along the same line.

An old friend of ours is organizing an online auction for our local humane society. She asked if anyone would volunteer anything... Since all my kittehz have been rescues i absolutely would. Just finished the binding on this.

3  Art Abandoned quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: April 07, 2014 01:35:23 PM
On Facebook there is a group that does art abandonment. I joined a while ago and have littered town with little paintings and embroideries but on a weekend full of finishes and a new spring cleaning in the sewing room. I finished this smallish lap quilt. And decided to drop it in the park.

At 11 am I left this here.

When I drove past again at 3:10 it was gone.

4  batik charms to random act of kindness in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: April 07, 2014 01:28:54 PM
Yesterday I woke up with an old friends name dancing in my head.

 I had made this quilt top from some won batiks charm packs. I used a new technique and it didn't turn out exactly as I envisioned. But when plan a fell thru I figured I'd finish this one off. And drop it in her mailbox. I can't wait to hear what she thinks.

The deepest darkest blue (botton half of the seventh block top row) is -40c or colder.
Each colour is a five degrees more or less. Except zero. Which is white. I have plans for -40/+40C.(-40/104F)  Cause after those two thresholds are hit. Its just blasted cold or bloody hot. Smiley

I am using wind chill values and humidex readings.  While they are a bit higher or lower than the hard recorded temperatures its what it feels like and perception is reality. When its -27C but but feels -42 you know it.

The range sheet... As it were.

Still cold for March. But one day. One day was above zero for the whole 24 hours. Smiley
I'll take it.

8  ottawa senators quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: March 23, 2014 07:54:46 PM
My bot is a huge senators fan. I suppose I will just be happy he's not a leafs fan.

When we were in ottawa about four years ago we found a cool senators branded flannel that he said. "You could make an awesome quilt out of"
Fast forward a bunch of years, a couple moves, and me making a billion other NHL pixel quilts and his thirteenth birthday rolls around. For the kid who asked for nothing, who has planned to donate a third of his birthday cash to the humane society, and put a third into his education fund. I pushed thru six weeks of headaches to finish this in time.

And when he opened it. He hugged it. Smiley

I'm having some real math issues. Wink I cannot get the 12 blade angles down. Are you ok with 20 blade scrappy dresden? I have the special ruler for that. Smiley And do you want a whole bunch of these weird squat six bladed blocks? Cause they are all cut already.

Never mind. They are going to have to go on a larger than 9.5 back.
