41  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / stash busting january quilt on: January 30, 2015 11:37:25 AM
I've set a goal to make a quilt top out of my scrap bins for every month of the year. Backing are to come from stash as well. This is January. Pic is off center cause it's really really cold outside.

This one is not in my usual style. Or colour palette. But I like how it turned out. The picture isn't great. But it is -24 outside and windy Smiley
43  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Laura's Celebration quilt on: January 27, 2015 05:57:17 PM
My friend Laura celebrated her 20 year recovery (whoohoo)
 anniversary last fall. She hosted a party at a park near her home... six hours and a different country from where I am.
I had started a new job and didn't figure in asking for a weekend off so I sent my best wishes and told her hubs and I wouldn't be there. Fast forward. Work scheduled released and I had not only the Friday but right thru til the Tuesday off. So! ROAD TRIP!

I.didnt tell her we were coming or that I had spent a day making signature blocks for her. After getting  lost in upstate new york and adding two hours to our trip we finally made it. she was taking off for a hike when she saw us... it took a minute to recognise. And there were some happy tears.

Then some more after our trek up the mountain and back to the gazebo... here I had set up a markers and block station. all in all I managed to get blocks sent to her friends all over the us and Canada to include in this. She hasn't seen the finished product but it is in the mail. Hopefully to arrive for her birthday.
44  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / for those about to poop! a rock star baby quilt on: January 20, 2015 02:59:30 PM
So one of my imaginary friends (people I only know online) asked me a while ago to make a "metal" baby quilt. Something with 80's metal themes or skulls or flames... this is what my graph paper and I came up with.

It turns out. It is for another imaginary friend who is expecting her first  Smiley
45  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / quilt block swap. round six. on: December 09, 2014 06:34:51 AM
This past round I managed to make two quilts. A big one and a small one. I'm still auditioning binding for the small one but the big one turned out great!I will update when the wee one is done. Smiley
46  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / from the lap quilt swap of 2009 on: December 09, 2014 06:30:27 AM
I finished! This was my oldest top. And now it's a quilt! This one took forever to quilt. Not sure if it's cause I was sick? It seemed to never end. But then it did.
47  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / quilt block swap. round three on: December 09, 2014 06:22:14 AM
A craftster quilt. Took me a while to get the flimsy quilted up but here it is all finished. I'm a huge fan. Smiley when dies round seven start? Smiley
48  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / a sad finish (embroidered menagerie) on: November 18, 2014 06:42:01 AM
A friend of mine asked me a few weeks back if I could finish a quilt her dad had started for her son. It's a huge animal quilt. All the blocks are intricate machine embroidered animals. She had found it while cleaning up some space for her mom to move back into once she is released from the hospital Sad.

The day I started working on it her mom was released From the ICU and admitted to a rehab wing at the hospital Smiley the day I started quilting it her dad was admitted to the ICU. Sad  And when I was binding it. She texted me he had passed away.   Cry now I don't know what to do. I'm hesitant to hand it over when all of this pain is so fresh. I don't know if it would help or hurt more.

A few of my fav blocks.
49  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / a handful of baby quilts. on: November 18, 2014 06:30:30 AM

Bright space

Block animals
