1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / modern-ish log cabin-ish purple-ish on: October 10, 2016 07:35:44 PM
Made for a friend I worked with last summer.

She selected colours and pattern. A huge departure for me. But I really love the final project.

And i got to use my brand new labels. Designed and swapped by sheepBlue.

2  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / ravens-two for mirth on: August 29, 2016 04:44:09 PM
This summer's IYP I partnered.with sheepBlue. She likes ravens and mentioned she could use some outdoor decoration. My glass skillz are a bit rusty. But black lines hide my soldering weakness. It is sealed against weather.

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / harry potter bookcase quilt (adapted) on: August 29, 2016 04:36:54 PM
I made this.   From here...http://www.fandominstitches.com/2015/07/harry-potter-bookcase-quilt-along.html?m=1

It's a partial cause it was a swap item. And summer is only so long...

I made this. And I'm still a bit in shock.

This is it in its new home with sheepBlue.  Smiley
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Craftster Canada Meetup. International pillow. 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.

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / That explains it! baby quilt 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
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Mandarin in Garlic 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.
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / the 'redeemer' quilt 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. 
8  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / I Want To Believe on: April 03, 2016 06:55:54 PM
Fandom in Stitches pattern from The X-Files quilt along.

I've been waiting for this pattern since I saw the quilt along posted. Last night while cruising for Superhero patterns I looked up this one. And Yay!

Printed off last night and selected fabrics, headed to the slothcave about 11 this morning. Smiley had th top done about 4. Went to mom and dads for dinner. Came home basted quilted and bound.

Hung it during the second commercial break of The Walking Dead.

9  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / shirt quilt on: March 23, 2016 08:22:31 AM
When my kiddo was a wee bot he liked to wear "stripey shirts like daddy wears to work"... I saved them thru the years an made a set of quilts for Christmas. One for my parents and sister. One for hubs mom and aunt.

The bot's birthday was yesterday so I finished the top o had made for him. Two.. three years later.   Now he wears nothing but hoodies and flannels and he has my sense of "style"  Cheesy
