Speed Racer

Date: 
3 October 2009 to 17 October 2009
Recipient: 
Adelyn (Mandy's daughter)
Pattern: 
Disappearing Nine-Patch
Level of completion: 
Completed and given away

Intended to be a lightning-fast baby quilt.  I can’t move forward on “Dragon’s Fire” until my design software is back up and running, so I might as well knock out a quickie quilt in the meantime.  Since it’s small, and I’ve never done a small quilt before, I’m going to attempt to quilt it myself.  EXPECT HILARITY.

(Have I mentioned how absolutely worth it those Marti Michell templates were?)  Worked on as a side project while stumped on the quilt “Dragon’s Fire.”  Expected to put it aside when I knew how to lay out “Dragon’s Fire,” but this quilt came together fast and was ready to go to the quilter’s before I had my plan for Dragon’s Fire ready to go.

Blog entries referencing this quilt: 

Originally intended to be my first quilt of 2009, this project was delayed a few months by ‘star stories’ needing to take precedence. This is a green-blue-white bargello quilt, whose colorway was shamelessly stolen from screenshots of Lothlórien from the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Star Stories

Date: 
28 January 2009 to 18 April 2009

Completed and given away

Now that she’s seen it, I can explain: this quilt is for Lexie, a co-worker of mine. Our logo has books and stars in it, so I thought a star quilt would be perfect. The star fabrics were contributed by co-workers – they are all fabrics with memories for the givers. For more about how this quilt came to be, see domesticat.net/2009/01/entrusted

Quilt festival : the story of 'star stories'

I’m hoping nobody minds that I do this, because this is old news to anyone who has been reading my sporadic entries this year, but I wanted to make a single, combined post about my quilt ‘star stories’ for an online quilt festival.  It seems there is an online quilting community, of which I am not really part of.  Perhaps it is time.

See? It looks planned!

I haven’t exactly been sewing much since I got back from the Vacation + Furlough Extravaganza. I know this shocks no one, myself included, but it’s taken me longer to bounce back from this trip than the previous ones.  My urge to lie on the couch and soak in the quietness that is home is difficult to ignore. Friends can vouch; they’ve seen little of me.
