1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: finally finished my kaffe fasset (esque) shirt box quilt on: June 29, 2015 09:03:54 AM
This is absolutely wonderful.  I love it.  My quilty friends always tell me, if you can't see the mistake from the back of a galloping horse, it isn't there!  Looks perfect to me!

Thanks everyone.  I had a blast using my nephew's truck for a "photo shoot".  I wish I had more of my quilts here to photograph that way.

The fabric is a charm pack from a line by Malka Dubrawsky of the blog Stitch In Dye.  She does amazing work.  There is also a wee bit of gray linen in it as well.

This quilt was started as part of Project Quilting Season 6.  It was the last challenge and due sometime in March.  Didn't make it.  But I kept picking it up and doing a bit more.

It is finally done. It has bits of linen to give it some texture and a flannel back to make it cozy.  It is 24 x 36 inches.

When I was growing up, quilts were made with white fabric, hand quilted, entered in the fair and mostly lived on the shelf or on the guest room bed. Comforters were made from scraps of fabric, tied, likely with a flannel back and USED.  Blankets were scratchy! 

Aside from that, Mare is correct. The only time you need to worry about the definition of quilt is when you are entering it into a contest.

I started quilting in 2007  Cheesy. I have a husband who likes my hobbies and frequently blows my budget at quilt shops.

Lucky you... enablers are great until you start to feel the weight of the looming projects.

I finished a thing!

The #PQ off-season challenges are to use a specific set of colors, one per month and create a 20 x 20 inch quilt following using a specific block as inspiration. For May, I choose orange.  The inspiration block was Monkey Wrench. 

Whenever I hear the phrase Monkey Wrench, I immediately think of Edward Abbey's book "The Monkey Wrench Gang".  Haduke is the main character, thus the title of my quilt.

This project is turning out to be a blast.  The inspiration block for June is the Friendship star.  I'm thinking blue for the color selection and thinking true blue... but who knows how that will turn out.  Stay tuned.
