11  Re: Quilt Block Swap Round 8 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Melladh on: October 25, 2015 03:40:08 AM
Great blocks Brandy! And I'd missed artmom's latest blocks! Love the schizo chickens. They make me so happy.

I'm going to finish(?) some blocks after lunch and post some pics. Yesterday was the craft fair. I now have no money. Cheesy but some great refills. One shop even had a good selection of solids, in other than odd bedsheet colors! Weighed up by that this one quilt shop wouldn't cut any fabrics less than a yard, annoyingly. I think they've misunderstood their genre. I would have bought a total of a lot more than a yard if I could have picked and chosen from the bolts, but oh well.Their loss!

May not look huge, but that's $200 right there. Cheesy will be doing boxed lunches at work this month LOL. Cool suggestions for mini jelly roll quilts welcome!

Uploaded Stacked blocks for sloth. Color representation is shit, it's hard to get a good photo now that it's getting dark. The best color shot was right after I'd turned my back and the smaller cat promptly jumped up and sat on the blocks -.- soz

Right. These are my musings. I think I'm actually going to go with blues on white, because it's neutral and fur-resistant colorwise. Purple on white is really nice too though, hmmm....

15  Cat sofa in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by Melladh on: August 10, 2015 10:36:54 PM
I made a cat sofa for bubblegum_phoenix in the cat lovers' swap in 2009, and while I've posted a completely different style cat sofa many years ago, I'm pretty certain I never posted this Smiley

It's made from regular mattress foam which I had cut to shape in the store, and then measured out the mantles of each side, sharp corner to sharp corner. Ignoring the overlapping parts, I then sewed a cover to dress it in based on those measurements.

Loving all the blocks that have turned up Cheesy

Just popped in to say I found us a wine. Maybe you've seen it? It might be shit, and I don't even like wine, but it's theme appropriate dammit!

You can send now! Smiley

I cut out all the boat fabrics yesterday and this is all the turquoise I had left afterwards Cheesy

Purchase random amount of fabric that turns out to be the EXACT amount of fabric? Winning Grin (though now I'm out of turquoise.. but at least I know where to find more)

wow quaggy--you snuck your blocks in behind our backs! Grin

Lovely job...and I really like how you laid out the Maple Leaves...that is going to be a beautiful quilt!

melladh...you pick such nice colors for your blocks...I am guessing that you like blues...Grin.

The 9 patch remains a favorite pattern of mine because you can get so many different looks...love the tan centers...really shows off the blues!

I DO like blues! Though in this swap I just asked for bold colors Cheesy And I love a lot of other colors too, even if my stash might try to say otherwise... Blues are just easy to get loads of in bold colors, with different soft prints. I have some wonderful of deep purples that I almost never get to use in this swap and I never really have any projects for myself to use them in. >_> It's just harder getting good fabrics in many of the other colors. Apparently our retailers really like blue as well I guess Wink Or at least they only like bold colors in blue.

I managed to find ONE lime-ish fabric at the store today though! (and I have a slightly unhealthy love for the color combo with the light purple, though I prefer the same combo with darker, bolder colors. Unhealthy why? Because I'd get sick of it if I had to see it too often, and yet I crave it!)

That's the only light purple they had btw. There was also a single orange fabric, but it's the same one as I already have. Then there were about 20 blues in various shades, and a bunch of dark greens, and dark reds. Smiley I think there were five yellows, in bold, warm tones, or pastelle yellow. No real "lemon" yellow. I DID manage to find a solid turquoise! (the only turquoise in the store) So there will be boats at some point! Cheesy

(oh, and here's a sneak peek of the failed icky-thump)

Look. Plz. Explain tan. Cheesy These are my stashed brown tones so to speak.

These three (on the left) are my dark brown, lush almost reddish browns.

And these are my, left to right:
light brown scraps (haven't found more lately) and orange brown? like a dirty orange?, tan-ish patterned beige-brown things, and "unbleached linen" (the only solid color cotton fabric in the right weight)

Solids are out for getting something so specific, there are maybe twenty solids in the general fabric store, and that color range gets unbleached linen or super-undeniably-cold-brown usually.

What about the rest? What is tan?! Is the light brown tan? Is the coffee print tan?
