31  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / With the summer quilt of sunset and fire, on: April 28, 2014 06:22:47 PM
I banish thee cold wet wintry spring.

Hopefully that will work, gawds knows nothing else will kick this never ending winter.

This is one of two circle of geese quilts i will be making. From the most current quilt block swap. I was playing with coloured sashings. I wasnt sure at first but it really grew on me. Thanks QBS5. Smiley
32  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Quilt block swap round two. Mod mosaic on: April 27, 2014 11:40:38 AM
From way back when. Winter of 2012. The second round of the quilt block swap.

I finally finshed the mod mosaic quilt. I actually ended up altering the blocks i received. Cutting them down to six in squares. I just liked the look. Smiley this one was always destined for the man cave so precision in sashing wasnt really necessary. Good thing too cause wow, did i get off track.
33  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Spiced Fibonacci on: April 26, 2014 07:38:54 AM
This quilt is based on a pic a friend of mine postedonline. he had just come from the spice market and had a bowl full of these bright amazing looking clear bags of a wide variety of spices.

Ad since he's also a pretty smart guy... I figure he will spot the fibonacci sequence right off. I LOVE how this turned out. Simple and modern and bold. and its backed with a bright teal floral edged in gold.

A facebook friend just pointed out that the Fourth Doctor would approve of this quilt, and now i cant see anything but a huge Tom Baker scarf. Smiley
34  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Facebook 63 redux- aka MOAR scraps on: April 23, 2014 06:38:30 PM
So. In. Trying to find the end of the bins i decided to make another quilt based off my facebook friends. The first one...http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=432898.0#axzz2zlNQO7od

This new one went together really quickly. Probly cause its a simple nine patch pattern and the Accuquilt 2.5inch square cutter. Smiley

I gave it to an aunt who has been pretty vocal about wanting a quilt for her knitting room. 

Photo colours are off a bit, bright sun and shadey tree branches.

Next scrap quilt gets smaller. Inches? Half square triangles? Who knows...
35  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Collaborative scrap strip quilt on: April 16, 2014 02:36:13 PM
After finishing the last round of the Quilt block swap (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=430851.0#axzz2z5SpsAn6) i kind of fell in love with the technique for these blocks.(http://www.twomoreseconds.com/2011/03/blogging-process-my-3x6-bee-blocks.html
While i was recuperating from a possible mild concussion (self inflicted at hockey  Embarrassed) i decided the scrap bins were OUT OF CONTROL. And since it was low thinking easy work and easy to abandon when the headache started, i sorted them by colour. Fast forward nine hours over three days and i had tidy sorted scrap bags. But LOTS of them.

So stumped for a colour palette. I asked my facebook list. What their favourite colour was. This is the result. More or less in order how they came in.  There are a few blocks that. Were from actual conversations with people but i tried as much as possible to order them in properly. Smiley i was going to send this somewhere else to live.

But as i was pinning it i just couldnt let it pass. Im the only one who know which block is my cousins, or which one is the kid from the curling club. And it uses that absolute last wee scraps of the "all you need is love" word fabric that i love love love. So im keeping it. Now i have 14 quilts in my living room. Cheesy

The sad thing. I still have ooooodles of scraps. I. Think ill make another along the same line.
36  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Humane Society donation quilt on: April 15, 2014 11:38:17 AM
An old friend of ours is organizing an online auction for our local humane society. She asked if anyone would volunteer anything... Since all my kittehz have been rescues i absolutely would. Just finished the binding on this.

Now, fingers crossed for lots and lots of money. Cheesy
37  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Art Abandoned quilt on: April 07, 2014 01:35:23 PM
On Facebook there is a group that does art abandonment. I joined a while ago and have littered town with little paintings and embroideries but on a weekend full of finishes and a new spring cleaning in the sewing room. I finished this smallish lap quilt. And decided to drop it in the park.

At 11 am I left this here.

When I drove past again at 3:10 it was gone.
38  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / batik charms to random act of kindness on: April 07, 2014 01:28:54 PM
Yesterday I woke up with an old friends name dancing in my head.

 I had made this quilt top from some won batiks charm packs. I used a new technique and it didn't turn out exactly as I envisioned. But when plan a fell thru I figured I'd finish this one off. And drop it in her mailbox. I can't wait to hear what she thinks.

39  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Three years in the making! Black White and Wonky! on: April 07, 2014 01:11:10 PM
I made this top the first week of January 2011. I finished it this weekend. Smiley .Even tho it is  a little big for a couch quilt i am using it as such cause i LOVE it!

40  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / ottawa senators quilt on: March 23, 2014 07:54:46 PM
My bot is a huge senators fan. I suppose I will just be happy he's not a leafs fan.

When we were in ottawa about four years ago we found a cool senators branded flannel that he said. "You could make an awesome quilt out of"
Fast forward a bunch of years, a couple moves, and me making a billion other NHL pixel quilts and his thirteenth birthday rolls around. For the kid who asked for nothing, who has planned to donate a third of his birthday cash to the humane society, and put a third into his education fund. I pushed thru six weeks of headaches to finish this in time.

And when he opened it. He hugged it. Smiley
