1  Motley Crue cross-stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by lorky on: March 03, 2011 08:57:34 AM

This took me well over 2 years in small bursts.  It has 13,776 x's.  It is the size of the album cover and I just used clear grid sheet over the album to keep it to scale.  

original album

2  Sock Monkey Centipede- i made it to boing boing! in Completed Projects by lorky on: August 12, 2010 07:03:21 AM
i had no idea where to squeeze this monster in.  Usually i make quilts so I guess miscellaneous is better than toys...its not really for the kids.  Anyway, by now you must have seen the movie. The Human Centipede. Yes? No?!!!! Well go watch it immediately! No, don't. Well, yes, you should but only after reading the wikipedia review perhaps. Consider yourself warned. BEHOLD! The sock monkey centipede!!!!!

These monkey babies were fun to make! Each segment was filled with love, terror, horror, and a little regret. I love them so much. They are freshly surgically connected so they are still a little weak in the knees. Because of this i have created a stand with coat hangers soldered together and sprayed gold. But as you see, I am a genius, but not a metalsmith.

So, I made this gem and put it on facebook and then it got forwarded around and then it was on boingboing.net!  I could die!  I wish it was on regretsy but we can't have everything.

3  Fishy quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by lorky on: October 09, 2008 07:21:46 AM

I just finished this fishy quilt for a friend.  I got to go crazy with the quilting and just did whatever.  I ended up quilting in bubbles and scales and swirlies for water.  Its hard to capture with the camera but I tried!

Oh, and the fins are 3-d.  They were sewn on after everything was quilted.

This is my broncos quilt.  I'm not sure of the pattern you are using but I found a cool pattern (which I didn;t need) and its basically a bunch of various sized strips in 5 rows.  It was a good way to modernize grody sports fabrics.

5  Help me choose my block layout in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by lorky on: March 05, 2008 06:44:03 PM
I'm having a hard time deciding if I should go zig zaggy

or just stripey

I'm leaning toward stripey.

This is all quilted and ready for the binding.  I'm already working on that too!  I love it!  Its huge and obnoxiously colorful!

7  Blocky quilt for ME! in Quilting: Completed Projects by lorky on: January 15, 2008 06:36:11 AM

This is all quilted and ready for binding!

This is 1/4 of the completed top.  I'm still working on the rest.  I actually copied someone's pattern from on here.  It was way more beautiful but I switched mine up to make my blocks less uniform and slightly chaotic.  I really thinned my fabric pile and scrap bin so that was cool.  I'll post more pics after I finish the top and quilt it this weekend.

Oh and the best part is that this one is for me!  I haven't made myself one yet, until now!

I made a denver Broncos quilt and it turned out great.  I often make double sided quilts.  The secret is to make one side much simpler than the other.  That way you don't have too many seams all meeting in one area and it stays nice and flexible.  If you keep the patterns pretty geometric then the quilting won't look bad on either side.
