1  Land of the Midnight Sun in Quilting: Completed Projects by waggonswest on: January 25, 2015 07:55:53 PM

This is my response to Project Quilting 6.2 Sunrise/sunset. It is made from some fabric I got in Alaska last summer along with some background fabric that mysteriously appeared in my stash.  No really.  I have no idea where, why or when I bought it!  But it works for this project so I'll call it a win. 

Pattern is Delectable Dog Sleds by Lisa Moore (yes!  I followed a pattern!)  It measures 19 x 50 inches and is machine pieced and quilted.  I am NOT good at stitch in the ditch.  It took forever!

2  more trees in Quilting: Completed Projects by waggonswest on: January 25, 2015 07:47:52 PM

A quick quilt finish for a donation to a great organization.  This is made from scraps of my other 'River Birch' projects.  It measures 13 x 15 inches and has fast finish triangles for hanging.

3  As long as we are talking FSL (lace earrings) in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by waggonswest on: January 21, 2015 05:30:31 PM

Sorry the picture is so terrible.  This is a pair of FSL earrings.  It is a Showalter design.  I've made about 100 pairs of various lace earrings.  

These are from Urban Threads... of course.  I haven't tried digitizing FSL yet.

5  Babushka Doll in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by waggonswest on: January 20, 2015 05:50:08 AM

Here is another one of my digitizing projects.  It is trickier than it should be to get the applique parts to work out properly.   And I am still working on getting the proportions right so that she feels right. 

This one is much closer with a narrower base and an elongated head.  Once I get this one finalized, I am going to make a dent in my scrap pile!

6  Whales Wear Glasses, Don't They? in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by waggonswest on: January 19, 2015 07:36:23 PM

I've been working on my digitizing... finally figured out how to do it manually. Now I am all about the in-the-hoop projects. Thus the whale wearing glasses stuffie!

Clearly I need to work on my FMQ...

But it is my first finish for 2015 and the first finish in a LONG time so I am happy with it.

8  Orphan Trees in Quilting: Completed Projects by waggonswest on: January 11, 2015 07:07:30 PM

This is my first finish of 2015!  Project Quilting Season 6.1  Trees.

The finish is the little purple quilt.  It is an orphan block I made for the larger green quilt in the background.  Poor Spud one.  Spud three carefully considered then rejected the purple block.  It needed to become a quilt all on its own.

Machine pieced and quilted.  Hand stitched binding.  Fast Finish Triangles for hanging.  About 25 x 18 inches. 

If you haven't checked out Project quilting on Flickr or Challenge Quilts on FB you should.  It is a fun way to jumpstart your creative quilting mojo.  The general idea is that you get a prompt and then one week to produce a finished quilted project of any size.  It is amazing to see what can get done in just 7 days.

There are a few more pictures and some details here.

9  Re: 50 Projects 2015 --POST YOUR 2015 Lists in Craftalongs by waggonswest on: December 31, 2014 11:27:32 AM
How can it possibly be time for me to make a list for 2015 already!?!  Well, I'm going to put it here.  I don't recall learning to craft or perhaps I should call it make.  Everyone around me made things.  Things that needed to be made like canned chicken, clothing and houses to those bonus things that added beauty and fun to life. I remember helping put patching compound in nail holes when I was four and I remember sewing clothes for my dolls under the quilt frame, pottery, drill lathe, picking dried flowers for wreaths...  I think I'm going to have to write more of this up in a blog post.

At any rate, I will start my list here.  Good luck all!

10  Sweet Little Mittens in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by waggonswest on: December 07, 2014 06:29:45 PM

This is a close up of one of the many pairs of mittens I have made this season.  I digitized the mitten but the snowflakes are from Emblibrary. 

Here you can see the pair of mittens connected by cording.

Then I got the notion to add the year and make some in pink.
