1  Star Wars for mothers day. in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: May 14, 2017 05:35:21 PM
This guy was an experiment in playing with scraps. And as soon as the top was done it had a home. The  new owner bought it as a mother's day gift for her kiddo. So she gets all the extra snuggles from a happy boy on mother's day.

2  mini art quilt. Picasso... sesame street... where they meet... in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: May 14, 2017 05:30:02 PM
Can you tell me how to get... how to get to sesame street...

Obviously take a left turn at cubism and a right at surrealism...

Mostly made with applique.tho I had to piece the shirt stripes together to keep the solid theme. And the background is a hand dyed I made last year for the Crafster Ontario meet up. (Good eye craftylittlemonkey)

my favourite bit is the picture within the picture.

I printed on fabric a bunch of other images that were in the running to be recreated.so she can swap out spending on her mood.

My favourite part about swapping is receiving the thing you didn't know you were missing. Until it became yours. Smiley

craftylittlemonkey hit that nail on the head.

Its outdoorsy, and scenic and has night sky's and campfires ..

oh. But look who's here.  

and here.  

and here!

Mr Jackalope has a magnet on his back. Smiley and there are 5 hidden in the quilting. So he can move around. It's such a fun idea.and we already have the perfect spot for it. Where we can take turns moving him to where we think he should be (hub and I have already had words)

thank you clm! This is beautiful. As is your family.   (We got to hear her sons craftster Christmas song he wrote... next generation is coming along)

I'm in a weird place with quilts right now. I have a couple opportunities to be in store fronts in my touristy town. One already has some orphan quilts. The other one is a super arty hipstery place. So... I have to make some quilts. Lots of quilts.  Lucky. I have lots of ideas.

5  two new baby quilts in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: April 06, 2017 09:58:52 AM
Bright and fun! I love making baby quilts

First up is an improv piece from off cuts of a HUGE flying geese fail quilt. Reduce reuse recycle right...

second up is my old go to. Garden Fence. I usually try not to use white in baby quilts. But this one called for it.

6  flying geese. from the qbs9 in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: April 04, 2017 08:52:16 PM
Another finish from the amazing ladies of the 9th round of the quilt block swap.

I wasn't sure how I was.going to put these together. And I ended up taking all the blocks apart into the 6x3 "goose" and reassembling them.
To get a good mix of pattern and.colour across the whole.

it's a wee eye crossingly busy. But it's amazing nonetheless.

7  on the plus side in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: April 04, 2017 08:03:01 AM
I had a fabric pull last winter that I kept adding calm, low volume fat quarters to. Its not my usual thing.  I threw this together one afternoon (probably to avoid doing something else) and it sat.

I found a ridiculous pink plaid and  this one told me where it wanted to go to live. I delivered it yesterday. To a happy friend.

The title of this quilt comes from Hamlet.
The blocks are a collaboration from the lovely swappers in the quilt block swap 9. (As I flicked thru the gallery I realised...  its been tooooo long)

this time I finally made myself do a freemotion quilt technique. Not as scary as I had made it in my head. It's certainly not perfect... but since this one is for me. That's all ok. I am going to hang this in my upstairs "library" space.

9  super quilt! in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: January 31, 2017 05:23:03 PM
I made this as a barter. Free theatre tickets for a superhero theme quilt (for a 60 year old) I think we both win.

alternate title was gotham under siege.  Grin

buildings and sky are pieces traditionally. Super hero logos are 5 inch paper pieced blocks from fandominstiches.com, the rays are applique.

10  bears for Arthur in Quilting: Completed Projects by sloth003 on: December 08, 2016 07:53:24 PM
An online friend from the UK requested this for her grandson. She found the image online and loved it. This is my recreation. Smiley

and a silly little face.
