11  Quilted Tablerunner Set in Quilting: Completed Projects by spencerisgod on: December 31, 2011 12:42:55 PM
So this year for christmas, I decided to make my boyfriend's parents a tablerunner with matching placemats:)  I had alot of fun doing this because I got to try a new technique, I didnt stitch in the ditch! I felt like I was actually quilting:D This was mainly done with scrap fabric I had around the house, and the blue matches their kitchen/dining room.

The placemats:

I don't have any action shots yet, but when I do I shall post them:)

12  Nerdy Embroidery for Dorm room in Needlework: Completed Projects by spencerisgod on: December 31, 2011 11:22:14 AM
So for my boyfriend's first birthday at college (and our first long-distance boyfriend) I decided to do some nerdy embroidery for him to hang up on his wall since he goes to nerd college:)
What I did for these was I did the embroidery and then cut a cardboard square out that I glued the embroidery to. Then I decoupaged some fabric onto the back and then I decoupaged fabric on as like a binding of a quilt because I wanted to give it a quilt feel.

The First one:

The Second one:

And what the back of them look like:

14  My Inspirational Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by spencerisgod on: August 29, 2011 06:01:40 PM
This is gunna be long one because I feel as though this quilt has an amazing story.
Last winter I was working on a quilt for my boyfriend at the local high school's musical I volunteer at. A mom of a cast member asked me if I could make a quilt for her. Her grandmother had left her a bunch of squares that she had cut but couldn't put together before she passed. This mom wanted the quilt made for her daughter who never got to have a quilt from her great-grandmother, but she had no quilting skills herself. So I agreed.
When she gave me the squares she also brought the quilt her grandmother made her so I could get an idea of she made her quilts and do it as accuratly as possible. As she was showing me the stuff, she was pointing out how the squares she was giving me were cut from the same cloth of squares in her quilt, and her mother's quilt. Some were the same fabric as a dress her grandmother made her in kindergarten and the same as fabric used to make doll clothes for her mom when she was a kid. It was so amazing to see the connections:) I knew this was a really important quilt.

So the first thing I did like her grandmother was the diagonal design. It was tricky because there were three patches her grandmother had already sewn that needed to be included (the quilt wouldnt have been right without them).

The next thing was that her grandmother used a flannel like blanket for the batting, so I did the same and I am actually in love with this technique:) I feel like it makes it homeyer.

And the last thing was her grandmother used a sheet for backing, which is another technique I fell in love with! It also ended up that I used a green sheet very similar to the green sheet used in the quilt she showed me, so it made it even more special.

When I gave her the completed quilt...the look on her face proved how much the quilt meant to her and her daughter, to have a piece of their grandmother even after she was gone. It made me realize I want to do this for the rest of my life. I want to quilt and make people feel good, feel like that. This quilt was my inspiration and I have to thank her grandmother for that.

And thank you guys for reading my story and looking at the second quilt I've completed! Comments and critiques are always welcome:)

16  Amanda and Amandus Bears in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by spencerisgod on: February 08, 2011 04:09:49 PM
Soooo I got a book of stuffed animal patterns for christmas and decided to make matching bears for me and my boyfriend to snuggle with on nights we can't be together (cheesy, I know:d it gets worse lol cause I'm a cheeseball). His bear is Amanda-Bear cause it's my middle name and my bear is Amandus-Bear because it's the male version of amanda so that's my "pet" name for him.

Amanda-Bear has green eyes like me and has MC + MF 4E embroidered on her heart. She turned out awesome:D

Amandus-Bear has blue eyes like him and has MF + MC 4E embroidered on his heart. I kinda screwed up when making him. The eyes are wonky, I didnt stuff the nose enough and the bottom is on backwards. Oopsies lol, I him anyway<3

And here's Amanda and Amandus together! I switched the colors when making Amandus to represent that we're differant but the same and it totally works:) They are so cute together Cheesy

Thanks for checking them out!! They love attention Smiley

17  Black and Red Apron:) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by spencerisgod on: February 08, 2011 03:56:47 PM
This is an apron I made for my sister's birthday. First clothing piece I've ever made that didnt end totally screwed up lol. We were happy (her last birthday gift was a cloak that ended up looking like a cape with a hood that choked because it was heavy and I did something wrong:d) I'm happy with it and it only took a day or too.

Me modeling it right after it's creation (sorry about the messy room and the crazy dog:d)

My cousin modeling it in a cleaner environment and for a less blurry picture lol. My sister would be the wearer but she hates her picture being taken

Soooo I totally love this apron:D Thanks for checking it out!

18  Chicken Chili Champ in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by spencerisgod on: February 06, 2011 08:51:20 PM
This is my first (and so far only because I haven't had a chance to do another) multi-colored silkscreen project. Wooo it was tough but totally worth it! I had a lot of fun. I messed up (dropped a glob of orange where it wasnt supposed to be) but thankfully I was able to cover it up by extending the flames and it turned out super awesome:D

I did this shirt for a friend who won a chili-off with his chicken chili

Thanks for looking!
