1  Mouse Maze in Quilting: Completed Projects by FunThreads on: March 24, 2013 05:50:26 AM
Our quilt guild has bags of random scraps called Puzzle Bags. The puzzle is to make a quilt for charity from the bag of random pieces. Here is the before and after of one of the bags I picked up. It's called Mouse Maze and there is a pattern free on my blog for the quilt.

Wait until you take a good long look at my quilt. It's totally amazing. Sloth003 used Creativity....creatively!!! My awesome quilt is titled Inspire and Foster. How perfect is that. You can just picture all the creative fun she had while working on this Cheesy

Here are some close up shots. Just look at all the techniques she used...blanket stitching, embroidery, patchwork, reverse applique, regular applique, stamping, cross-stitch, beading, yo-yo's, kansashi style flowers, felt flowers. She included all my favorite things....irises, cupcakes, buttons, hummingbirds and mushrooms. Oh, and owls, trees and fun lettering on the binding fabric too. Holy cow, there are so many fun things going on.

THANK YOU so much. I totally LOVE my quilt Grin It's so "outside the box" just like me Grin

3  Somebody's View in Quilting: Completed Projects by FunThreads on: February 22, 2013 01:08:51 PM
My partner from the MAQ6 received her quilt so I can share it now with everyone. This is a wall hanging titled Somebody's View.

There are clear seed beads with silver centers for the sparkly stars. They don't photograph real well.  I used some white crayon and black netting to create the shadows on the rocks. The background is machine quilted with a walking foot.

Enjoy the view!

The gypsy/Mexican embroidery quilt is so fun to look at; so colorful!

The space quilt is awesome!  I love the textures.  Is it all from the fabric or is there stitching or beads or something on the sides of the rocks/mountains?  The whole thing is just so cool!

The rocks are appliqued with satin stitch. There are a few places to the right that have black netting over the rocks to add darker shading. The tips are colored a bit with white crayon to make them lighter too. Here is a close up shot so you can see what I mean.

7  Mr. Bones the Pirate in Quilting: Completed Projects by FunThreads on: June 10, 2011 07:34:27 AM
Meet Mr. Bones the Pirate. I guess finding the treasure a little late is better than never Grin
I put the pattern on my blog for anyone that is interested. He still needs to be quilted and I was thinking of adding some bling to the chest. He measures 21 x 27 inches and is fusible raw edge applique. Enjoy!

8  It's Alive! in Quilting: Completed Projects by FunThreads on: June 10, 2011 07:25:38 AM
I'm at it again. You really need to back away from the monitor to appreciate the details on this one. Can you see him? It's Frankenstein. He measures 60x86 inches and was made from a pumpkin carving template found at Zombie Pumpkins. He is going to be a Father's Day gift.

Far more teeny tiny pieces than my Spock quilt but the detail is fantastic. I will be hand quilting this one.

More info on the process on my blog

Hope you enjoy him!

9  Fascinating in Quilting: Completed Projects by FunThreads on: May 13, 2011 11:20:40 AM
**NEW Quilt along starting Sept 23rd. You can make this by Christmas. Come join the fun http://funthreads.blogspot.com/p/fascinating-mr-spock-quilt-along.html**

My newest quilt is called "Fascinating" since that's Spock's answer to most everything. You need to back away from the computer in order to get the full effect of this quilt. The image gets much clearer from a distance. Can you see Mr. Spock? It's 58x82 inches.I wanted a scrappy quilt that would be very chaotic and hard to see up close but reveal an image as you backed away from it.
Details of the quilt process are on my blog

Hope you enjoy my nutty project Grin

10  Seasons wallhanging with yo-yo's in Quilting: Completed Projects by FunThreads on: April 29, 2011 08:44:12 AM
I finished another UFO (unfinished fabric object) from sewing stash. I made this design about a year ago for a swap and my friend loved it so much she made me a bag of yo-yo's so I would make her one too.
