cranky pants is genius! I'm totally intimidated by any mechinized crafts so MistressT - you win!
the junker jane dolls are so rustically beautiful! I love that sort of stitching and the story that goes along with is perfect for these characters
the muse wands are beautiful! I love the eyes at the top!
So I received my package today from sloth003 and I can honestly say I was speechless. It is the most epic, most insane, most......bllahhhalfakdjfaljfds crazy swap thing I've ever gotten. I am not worthy.
sloth is one of the reigning quilting royalty around here and this can only further cement her TOTAL DOMINATION!
A FREAKING QUEEN SIZED QUILT! Not only that but its inspired by an awesome piece of art I had pinned (credit to etsy artist whiteoctopus for the original art inspiration)
which I love because it's geometric and fractal-ly and has octopus tentacles...I could go on
sloth said that I had mentioned an old crazy quilt my mom made that I loved, when growing up, and subtly did that with this quilt as well using a tremendous amount of different fabrics. I am in love! I'm a scrappy person at heart and this makes me happy.
Also, I know it's made to fit my bed, but I don't know that I can bear to sleep with this. This is a thing that should be hung on a wall to be admired and petted and shown off. Me and my bf are starting to look for a house for the first time and I think vaulted ceilings have just been added to my must have list so that I can hang this up properly to show off!
sloth, I have loved getting to know you and am so honored that you made this epic piece of art for me. It will be treasured for a very very long time to come. Who knows, maybe if I ever have kids, this will end up being the crazy quilt that they grow up with that their mom said was made by a mad genius who had little regard for her own sanity but epic talent coming out of her pinky fingers
You rock lady.
P.S. This pictures so don't do justice to this quilt. sloth if you have better pictures please please post them. Or at least give this treasure it's own post!
