1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Star of the Prophet quilt (QBS9) on: October 28, 2016 01:03:04 PM
This is the product of quilt block swap 9 for me! I wanted to do two swaps to get a bigger quilt, to fill more X-es between the stars, but there was far too much going on in life for that to happen unfortunately. I'm very happy with the result nevertheless! And at my brand new job I happen to have a coworker who's tall enough to hold the quilt both up and out, which is amazing Cheesy



It's almost always dark here now, so the pics are a bit shoddy. The main pics are in somewhat daylight because I brought it to work.







It's a birthday present for my mother-in-law who turned 76 this wednesday. I just barely managed to finish it on time, but unfortunately she got sick so I haven't been able to hand it over yet. I hope she'll like it once she gets it!

(Quilting is done by Bussler Bussler here in Sweden - so happy with the results on that)

I've finished just in time, Amir goes to his mom this friday Cheesy I took it to work to get someone to hold it up in what can be approximated to daylight! (also I have a coworker tall enough to  hold it both up and out, woot!)

That's amazing! I totally want one Cheesy Though I'm still not done with what I've got lol. Got the latest stars off at the long arm quilter's now, and generally being worried about getting it back in time (as I've had no response on my latest e-mails), but here's hoping. Cheesy

I love how it looks like "fuck cat" is its own statement Grin

And I too think after the holidays will be a good time for a QBS comeback!

Thanks guys! Smiley

I'm impressed by your wheel with perfectly identical teeth. They are such a pain to create.

They're not even remotely identical though Cheesy The template was imperfect, and then I cut from that with a saw, and whittled them down... It just looks neat because they're so many. The more teeth, the more even it looks, it seems, got the same effect when creating other wheels from my own design - the 32 cog ones look fine, but the 16 one looks all wonky. Also having whole days just dedicated to these things helps with getting through the wheelmaking.

Just got a chance to look at the video!! Really cool. I need one to clap at all the bad jokes make

I actually USED IT to make a bad joke (quietly, when nobody saw me..) by only mounting one arm and making a lil side video called "the sound of one hand clapping" >_>

I attended a course led by Per Helldorff, where we got a very rough kit to make an "applause machine" out of, using whittling knives and saws and drills.



It's a pretty fun contraption, but I haven't treated it yet, so when it's super high moisture in the air, it swells shut and won't move. Smiley
