31  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / tropical garden! on: November 17, 2015 06:36:52 AM
This is one my Quilt block swap 7 quilts.

Made for a friend who had a rough summer and needed to retreat to somewhere warm from time to time.  Since she can't always be in Cuba. This is second place.

Batted with a double thickness of poly. For all the smooshy warmth.
32  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / The Physicists signature quilts on: October 06, 2015 07:46:42 PM
I live in a small town with a big festival theatre. Last fall my son auditioned for a role and while he didn't get the first one. He got the second. I am a very very proud mama of a paid actor kid. As the show got underway he asked if  I could come up with a memory quilt for him and the other day children in the cast.

I contacted the stage manager and we made arrangements. They closed the show this past Saturday and I had him hand out the surprise gifts.

Signed by cast and crew. Personalised to each kid in their select colour. All kiddos involved apparently cried an most of the parents as well.

Close up of the main quote.  bubble  jet set rocks!
33  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Mojito! the quilt of learning and trade on: October 06, 2015 05:08:21 PM
I am an old. I work with the not olds. One afternoon while I was working on some hand work one of the young women i worked with said something about learning something to keep busy with during down time. She said she would teach herself to knit.

We made a deal. A quilt for the pair of tardis mittens. This is my half of th deal. The colour palette sprang to mind an the pattern came to me fully formed.

And I got new mittens.

36  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / july scrap. whew I made it! on: July 27, 2015 05:40:09 PM
I wasn't sure this one was going to get done this month. I've been CRAZY with work and when I'm not working I'm running away to to woods. (and not to mention the sewing room was unusable after my miserable winter of haunted quilts)

So I had two day off. In a row this week. Yesterday I cleaned the sewing room. And last night I made the top. And today I quilted and bound it. Smiley

Sometimes quilts tell me where they want to go live while I'm working on them. This one, last night wanted to to to K's house. This afternoon. It said "no. I wanna go live with T" now I don't know what to do.
37  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Quult Block Swap 7 is open! on: June 23, 2015 06:54:30 AM

Sign ups thru next week. Join us in adding some amazing WIP's to your stash. Wink make some blocks you'd never try on your own, play outside of your colour comfort zone and get a jump on the quilt you want to get around to.

Quilters don't get many swaps cause they take so long and are so huge. This one is a bit of fun for us!
38  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / june scrap quilt on: June 10, 2015 08:46:27 PM
You'd think I'd start running out of scraps. At least bug enough to cut...but I still have tons to go. Smiley

June's quilt didn't quite work as envisioned. But as we all know. Done is better than perfect. Wink

I may have time to get another scrap done this month I hope. I have my brain set on some dresdens...
39  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / may scrap quilt on: June 01, 2015 11:23:50 AM
This one came down to the wire. I had the top finished may 4. But I finished the binding last night after the opening week staff party.  Cheesy
