So it feels like I've been sewing and sewing and never getting anything finished. Today I took stock.


That's my friends an family  2016 quilts...

And I cleaned my space. So I can get down to some serious deadline work.

2  Craftster Canada Meetup. International pillow. in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: June 27, 2016 06:05:03 AM
There was an amazing group of international craftsters who met up this past weekend to make messes and memories.

We made gifts for one another and selected white elephant style. This was my contribution.

I started crafting  for the Craftster Canada Meet up.




I cannot wait to cut into all of these. But I need zippers.
And they need to dry.

And as as proper quilter. I only needed fat quarters. So I dyed half meters. Cheesy

4  That explains it! baby quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: May 25, 2016 09:35:52 AM
A friend asked me for ideas about a baby quilt. Along the themes of aliens, Loch Ness, sasquatch that sort of thing.

I offered up a bunch of rough sketch outlines and this is the one that got settled on. The original idea is not mine. But I cannot find the pic that inspired me. Bad crafter.

This one had a moment. Where I almost took the scissors to it. After it was done.

Now I'm glad I didn't and I popped it in the mail today

I had some low motivation around the house today.

So I made six tops.

Four daily stars.
My flying geese from the current qbs. And the granny squares from the qbs.

Tomorrow I really should clean.

8  Mandarin in Garlic in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: April 19, 2016 08:23:01 AM
Yesterday a friend  posted on picture of a garlic bulb with a slice of Mandarin orange in place of one clove. The caption read 'just because you fit, doesn't mean you belong' and it had to be the name of this scrappy trip around  the world quilt.
Half the blocks came from the swap and half were picked by my lads. The one block just doesn't blend. So I figured it's best to highlight it. And hence the name.

9  the 'redeemer' quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: April 18, 2016 08:34:35 AM
Friday I made a pieced pillow. I did the math. I sketched it out, it looked fine. So I cut and sewed. And it was a total fail. I have no idea why it didn't translate. But it didn't. And no, I'm no being overly critical. It was just bad.

So I was sulking in my sewing room and decided I couldn't go to bed mad at fabric so I decided I needed something quick and get me out of it. I had picked up a few solid charm packs a couple years ago for something and have been scavenging them since. I had some one inch white strips pre cut from another project that didn't need as many as I cut. So I figured I'd smoosh them together. 

I manage to get the strips done before bed an wasn't mad at my sewing room. When I got home from work Saturday afternoon, I set up on the deck for the first "spring" day in ontario. Grabbed the beer and finished it.

And I love it. And it told me where it wanted to go live so I even got to be the quilt fairy this weekend. Smiley the recipient was super happy
 


It's not ripply, it's just not laid out carefully. Wink



This... this is the life.

Sloth - what is your "daily" idea?  I must have missed that


The last
 Few years i have done a daily quilt.
Year one is called 4pm 2013. I looked at the sky at 4 every day and matched the square to the colour.
Year two i went nerdier and check the daily high and low temperatures.

Last year life kicked the heck out of me.i was making a sunset quilt... A simple three bar representation of that days sunset. I was solid til may, have the data til mid september then it got all pear shaped, i have half a quilt done, data for a quarter and im not sure what i want to do with it... this is the first three months...

This year. Instead of that, i am asking all my friends and family who come over to the house to grab a piece of fabric from the stash, and i am makinging wonky stars. Every person, every time.  I will put together quilts, and half i will donate, and half i will raffle off to the folks who are in. Two tops so far. This year.
