1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Rooster Quilt on: January 23, 2012 06:21:02 PM

Since starting school I really haven't made much but over the holidays I managed to kick out this quilt for a friend who raises chickens. Smiley It's her rooster. It's pretty simple--there's a little painting but most of the work was the machine embroidery. It's quilted in rayon in a freeform version of the traditional feather stitch.

I really like the way it turned out so I'm sharing. A close up:

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Quilts for Japan on: March 22, 2011 04:12:45 PM
Hey quilters,
Most of you are probably aware of the buzz in the blogosphere about the quilts for Japan, but I don't see it here so I'm posting it. Quilter's Newsletter  is accepting quilt donations to send to disaster victims in Japan (Patchwork Tsushin is taking them also for we non USian quilters). If anyone has time to make one or a few that they haven't been able to gift yet, consider sending them along.
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / It's been awhile...Horses and Chariots on: February 16, 2008 10:52:32 PM
It has been a long time since I've finished anything noteworthy, and I still haven't completely decided what I will do with the binding treatment, but I finished this for the most part about a month ago-after it languished as a WISP for about five years. Ah!

Anyway here it is:

There is more description of the piece over at my blog.
4  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Slothguy - needle felted on: December 19, 2005 08:13:29 PM
This was originally a cartoon which I then turned into a doll for my mom to sit on the dash of her car-so she can whack it (she suffers from road rage, and every slow driver she gets behind is a 'slothguy'). Wink  It was my first attempt at needlefelting-turned out fairly well I think!

I hope this isn't huge...

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Year of the Veteran on: December 07, 2005 12:19:04 AM
Yeah another one. 2005 was designated the year of the veteran here in Canada, so I made a quilt to commemorate of my great grandfather.
It's taken from a WWI portrait (he was about 25) and a WWII era photo in the back (he was about 50 there and in the Veteran's Guard). I severely melted part of that background piece and it is wonky now. I was going to toss it, but somehow I feel now that it represents the subject better as he was himself severely wounded in the war.
Sorry about the yucky crop job.

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Oil-brushed and beaded quilt on: November 23, 2005 04:07:58 PM
I was involved in an anonymous swap, and couldn't post my work until it was finished. Well now it is and here is the quilt I made!

It is a design based on the work of Margaret Macdonald, I call the girl an indian princess. The colours are taken from medicine wheel plus umber, and it was dry brushed in oils. I machine quilted and then beaded it in a random fashon.

7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / portrait in red and blue on: August 22, 2005 02:07:54 AM
I did this little quilt (letter sized) for a portrait challenge. It's purposefully messy, as I am...I've been posting this in various places on the net, why not here as well!

8  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Hotter than Ell on: April 08, 2005 10:38:48 PM
Ah it's been awhile since I finished something worth sharing... Embarrassed
But I've been enjoying all the work you all have been posting, so here is a teensy quilt (9x10) that I just finished.

Hotter than Ell

Designed in a 30's deco-cubist style-it's inspiration was the song by Fletcher Henderson of the same name. I forgot the devil's tail though! I might still put it on anyway. Colours are a bit off in the scan.

Hope you guys enjoy this as much I've loved looking at your stuff!

9  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / other fiberwork you do.... on: October 22, 2004 09:46:02 PM
Okay, I'm not sure if I'm posting correctly, but since this forum has the 'miscellaneous' tacked on, it would appear to be the closest fit.

I'm just wondering how many people do some of the other needle arts such as-
 naalbinding, netting,  hedebo, bobbin lace,tambour (hey that makes it relevant to this thread! Smiley) reticella, punto en aria, teneriffe, and other needle made laces, etc.
Just curious to see who else does some of the less common fiber arts, and what you do with your work.

Hey everyone!
I'm new to the board and am having a great time looking at what you all can do! Some of this stuff is bloody ingenius!
Thought I might add some of my work to the board as well...
