21  Skull quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: September 03, 2012 07:26:16 PM
My skull quilt is finally (mostly) done.  I still need to trim a few threads and quilt the eye sockets, but it is otherwise done. The pattern is called "Basket Case" by Boo Davis. It can be found in her book Dare to Be Square.  My version is smaller than the original - I made my blocks 9" square instead of 12".
Here it is hanging on the neighbors wall:

Here is a close up (You can see the loose threads and unquilted sockets here):

The quilt is all machine quilted except for the nostrils:

And the back.  I made wonky log cabin blocks.  Kinda like two quilts in one:

Thanks for lurking!!

22  Flying squares wall hanging in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: August 31, 2012 11:15:17 AM
I discovered the "flying squares" quilt block in an old copy of "The New Quilting and Patchwork Dictionary."  As the copyright is 1988, the new in the title is a bit of a misnomer.  I decided it was the perfect block to use with some bright fabric to lighten up my small hallway. 

and a close-up:

It was a fun and easy little project.  I really love the block. It is a great way to use up scraps, and it kind of reminds me of a chunky pinwheel.

23  Bright beginnings baby quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: August 17, 2012 09:05:30 PM
Sometimes I experiment when I make quilts, and then I don't know what to do with them when I am done. This is one such quilt:

After I finished with it, I really didn't know what to do with it.  Thankfully, my daughter's former babysitter saw a picture of it and really liked it. . .  and she just had a baby boy. . .  so I had the perfect place for it.  
Here is a close up of the froggies that inspired the quilt in the first place:
. . . And I always like to see the back of quilts, so here goes:
The new mommy is very happy with the new quilt, and I am happy it has a good home.

I finally made the pillow cases.

My daughter took one look at my room and announced that my husband (her stepdad) must love me very much for putting up with so much pink in his room!

25  Granny squares quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: May 01, 2012 08:37:32 AM
In keeping with my goal to start making more quilts for other people (rather than just for me) I made a small quilt for one of my best friends.  Her bedroom is pretty old-fashioned looking, with country pinks and burgundies.  She has a pink checkerboard quilt above her bed, and wants something for an empty space on a different wall next to her book case. I thought the granny squares block would be a nice complement to the checkerboard quilt.  I hope she agrees.

26  Car trash can in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Eowynt on: April 22, 2012 10:58:07 AM
 I made a  little trash bag for my step-daughter's new car.  While taking pictures, though, I noticed that it would have made a cute little purse.  May be next time!

I hope she likes it.

27  Wandering star lap quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: April 14, 2012 12:23:20 PM
I am a little uncomfortable making quilts for others.  A part of me is afraid they won't like what I make.  But I love making quilts, and I only have so much room in my house.  This year I am stepping out of my comfort zones, and I am endeavoring to make quilts for my siblings.  First up is a wandering star for my oldest sister.  Her couch is kinda teal, and I don't have a lot of teal, so I rounded up what teal I had, and I added everything I could find that worked together.  So here it goes:

An action shot on my chair:

And the back:

My husband has given it a thumbs up, so I hope she'll like it, too.

28  Let's sail away in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: March 29, 2012 04:06:38 PM
I bought an out of print quilt book by Doreen Zimmerman awhile back.  I was inspired by these little sailboats on one of the quilts, so I made my own version.

The boat in the upper left corner was initially pieced together incorrectly, but I liked my mmistake so much, I made another mis-pieced block for the opposite corner. Each boat is 2" x 2".  To give you a sense of scale, here it is hanging by my fireplace:

I fell in love with green while working on this quilt: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=235506.msg2578507#msg2578507
I decided to make a bed quilt to go along with it:


Now I have to make matching pillow cases.

Enjoy!

30  Persistence and Procrastination in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: January 20, 2012 06:53:49 AM
When I first started quilting, I made a lot of sample blocks so I could practice and develop new skills.  I made blocks with half-square triangles, quarter square triangles, flying geese, strip piecing, etc.  Most of those blocks got donated to people making charity quilts.  I held onto a group of those blocks, and 9 to 10 years later I sewed them  into a quilt top.  After stitching in the ditch around the blocks, I set the quilt aside.  Zoom ahead 10 more years. . .  and I finally finished quilting it.  Here it is, 20 years in the making:

I also took a picture of it outside, but the morning sun in Winter doesn't create the best light:

My stippling skills leave much to be desired, but if you don't look too closely, you might not noticed all the mistakes!!
