37.0 Twilt On My Last Round Robin Quilt

March 13, 2015

Between the month of January & February, I was frantically running around trying to finish the very last Round Robin quilt I did for my #twilter group A.

At the time of this writing, I still have not received my own round robin back, but I hear it’s coming, delayed by fabric selection.

Anyway, I had looked at an idea on Pinterest while searching for something else, and this border idea kept sticking to me as a great way to finish off a quilt.

First, the picture of the end, then we’ll discuss the process.

Round Robin Dianes Twilt On quilt with Darla borders

The idea I had seen was a strip style quilt with white borders, an accent color, and then multicolor strips outside extending to the end.

I had punched this into EQ7 and no matter what I saw there, I just couldn’t decide that they were any better than the strip idea I had seen on pinterest.

This was the quilt as I had received it.

It was so lovely pinned to my design wall (it was heavy, needed pins to help keep it up there).

The whole quilt was so whimiscal & fun. It needed a whimsical & fun last border on it.

Anyway, I had been doing bargello quilting for a while, my Royal Red King’s Puzzle quilt is a bargello style, and so was another quilt I was working on (not shown yet), and so my mind was doing strips anyway.

Lucky me, the math worked out fantastically and I could make 12 inch blocks.

So I drew it up in my sketchbook, abandoning all these EQ7 variations I had done during Nov-Jan.

I can divide easy numbers easily, and I first was thinking I would do a plain inner border and maybe inset some applique swirls on it, which would have also have been really nice too.

the original drawing and some math smaller

But then I started laying out fabric for it, and I found I had a really nice light green that looked like a good compliment to Daisy’s white & green disappearing four patch round.

I was thinking the green was like the grass for the birds, Daisy’s round was like a white picket fence, and then I decided to do a pathway & some sky, using the pathway as the contrasting color.

The pathway & the blue sky border are actually pieces I purchased for Laura’s neutral round robin that didn’t exactly “go” with her quilt, but were close. Well the pathway I bought & the light blue/grey that I used that I bought were for her quilt, and then I tacked on the bright blue butterflies to the order for ME, but they looked really good next to the blues in the birdhouse round. So decisions I thought I was making wrong earlier, ended up being good decisions now.

And then I decided to change the green fabric. Why? Because the green fabric I originally picked (not shown) was a lower quality. I could tell. It would have worked well for me, but not for a friend. It was perfect though in shade & lightness. So I had to substitute.

trying out borders in strips

Which lead me to the lightest seafoam green fabric I have in the quilt.

But the fabric was “too plain” by itself. It was a good shade of green, the closest to what I was searching for, but it was too plain by itself.

But then I also saw the next lightest green at the fabric shop that mirrored Daisy’s fabric just exceptionally, even though it was darker than I wanted. I decided to do both in the quilt and then just layer them next to each other.

THEN I had the even darker batik sitting next to my computer. And as the week went on, it kept taunting me, telling me to gradate the greens into 3 levels of dark.

Which I did! And I love it.

redrawing to accomodate fabric changes smaller

And as you can see from the picture above, I had a fairly easy time of making the blocks once they were figured out. Each half was only 7 strips of varying widths.

Strips of green & strips of blue & brown. The blue & brown I made easy and made a base unit, then tacked on the extra blue to the base unit for the different lengths of the strips.

The greens I had less of a defined base unit, but that was ok.

various strips

Bargellos are a lot of work, don’t get me wrong, but there is an ease to them. You sew the strips into sets (base units) and then cut up those sets to the widths you need.

The hard part is going back to the ironing board for all these seams.

And here I could see it was going to work!

trying out the corner blocks

The corners were actually the trickiest part, trying to decide the order I would quilt them in. Part of it is like a log cabin block, and part is strips.

I snuck in the focus fabric into the little part of the border in addition to some of my pretty pink fabric as a nice compliment.

closeup of corner blocks

My only regret is not bringing in some of the cream into the quilt. I love it, but I think cream sitting right next to the pathway fabric would have eased some of the green we see here.

I calculated about 2000 pieces in total for the entire round of the quilt. Not to brag, again, bargello easily lends itself to having lots of pieces with less individual sewing sections in it.

That did lead me a few thoughts about my quilting insecurities. 1) Did I go overboard? 2000 is a lot of pieces. 2) Did my sections of the quilt overshadow the other sections of the quilt. 3) Did I try to show off?

I had the realization that not only did I do my best job for a quilt for a friend, but I did a style of quilt that was pleasing to me in a style that I was comfortable doing, something that I was familiar with, and also shows my style enough for others to know just by looking at it that border was mine. I did my best to match the other’s sections, and perhaps there is a little bit of overboardness, but even though it took a lot of 2 full days of 2 full weekends, it meant a lot to me to make something that I am proud of that can go to my friend Diane, who had to put up with all my insecurities with the Round Robins along the way.

And with that, I am done with my section of the Round Robin quilts. Once I receive mine, I will see what pictures are in the flickr group and put together a roundup for the round robin in its own post. I hear mine is outstanding, I can’t wait to see it.

36.6 I am Planning on Entering Kings Puzzle quilt in a Regional Show!

February 28, 2015

Hey everyone! Long time no see here.

I have been working on projects for others. Until 2 weeks ago, I went to a retreat, and I finally finished up the borders on my Royal Red Kings Puzzle quilt.

And I have a great picture of it. Okay, still slanted, but I may have actually gotten the reds & greys close to accurate — do you know how hard it is to photograph such a graphic quilt?

Ta-Da!

Royal Red Kings Puzzle Quilt Top With Borders

Anyway, there is a regional show here in Kansas City. The Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival.

I was tired of deadlines and not wanting to think about the quilt show, so I bailed for the guild selection of quilts. However, after I brought this beauty out at the guild retreat, I had more than one person come up & tell me this quilt needed to be entered.

The show for judged quilts is first come, first served, it is not juried. There are also guild entries that each guild selects to represent their guilds. I was hesitant when we decided to vote on quilts for the guild, but now I am sticking my neck out there wider & getting this quilt judged! AS long as it makes it in time.

I am heading to fill out the form right now, as soon as I am done with this post. First day for postmark on the quilts is tomorrow, so hopefully the mail here won’t be too slow for my entry to show up late at the headquarters. We do have a slow mail system, but I can’t mail it until Monday afternoon.

Anyway, for those of you keeping reference, the pattern of the center of this quilt is called King’s Puzzle, made by Lois Hatleberg. I contacted her and she is fine with me putting this quilt in the show.

And since I had all the extra dark reds I collected to find the last border, I pieced the backing into also a square. I tried to go from light to dark, inside to out.

Royal Red Kings Puzzle Backing

This quilt will be the first one that I don’t do start to finish. I know I could figure out & work through quilting this quilt on my own, but since I want some form of custom work on this quilt, and I don’t own a long arm, and it takes me enough time loading & unloading when I rent the long arm, that I would get frazzled doing this sort of work in a shop where everyone could see me.

So I am reaching out to Artfully Quilted by Sandy Morgan Cockrum to quilt this quilt. We’re meeting to discuss next week. Here’s hoping that meeting goes as planned on both sides. She does amazing work and may work well for this “modern style” quilt. I do have to figure out what category this is going into. Maybe modern? There aren’t many categories.

In Other Quilt Show news:

The show is also making me extra excited because several #twilter friends are going to come & make a special trip for a meetup! What a great day when I found out they were coming!

If you’re coming, buy tickets through the website rather than in person if you can. Or I assume you can contact me & I can get you the tickets myself once I have them to sell.

The website for the show is http://kcrqf.com

Looking forward to it. Maybe I’ll see YOU there! And if so, maybe you’ll see MY quilt? I hope so!

36.4 In Search of Taupe

October 26, 2014

I am so glad we have our 2 month deadline for our round robin quilts now, instead of 1 month like before.

For Laura’s round robin center, I have been working on a neutral quilt that has been challenging & stretching me.

I can’t say I have done too many neutral quilts before – maybe just the card trick quilt. And that quilt is more fall colors, without sticking strictly with neutrals.

I have been happy to think about this quilt, but so far, this quilt has generated more EQ7 designs and colorations than ANY other quilt I have done, round robin or not.

I have many different directions to go with this quilt.

Here is the center of the quilt, the original block.

laurasrrcenter

 

Look at the browns, the golds, but also the greys, and hint of blue/bluegrey.

Someone in the journal said there is a theme of pebbles, someone later said a theme of geese.

It immediately made me think of cranes, and the unique opportunity of my hometown.

I used to live in a section of Nebraska, where in March, scores of Sandhill Cranes would roost on their trip back to Canada. Like they ALL decided to fly up through this 60 mile section of land and so it was / is a really big deal there!

cranepictureinspiration

Being late March, usually seeing the cranes happened on cool grey days, fields of plowed corn, you could see hundreds or thousands of cranes taking a breather. Nearing the Platte River.

Anyway, cranes & pebbles & geese & grey March skies was my inspiration for this round of the quilt.

I had my heart set on an eyelash design, which would have been doable, but curves and paper piecing for that quilt, at the size I wanted to do, would have been too much work & struggle.

first idea didnt work eyelash pickledish rrobin

The first idea is what I bought fabric for. I was trying a couple of the original fabrics, inserting a couple of my own.

I went out on a couple of days trying to purchase good fabrics and I fell in love with the dark/medium-dark grey blue pictured above and below, which sorta guided the rest of my color choices.

greybluefusions

And this being smack dab in the medium color scheme, sorta blended in with my second most favorite fabric choice idea.

So again, going out for fabric purchases, and a second round of online purchases directed me to THIS fabric aquisition for my stash. To build up my neutral quilt colors, yeah.

buildinganuetralstash

I finally kept coming back to a light and dark version of taupe to compliment the blue/grey fabric pictured above. This is what I had in EQ7 that pleased me so well. Just enough of a color shift to be interesting, but not enough of a derivation of the original quilt.

I actually saw a glimpse of what I would consider to be ‘the perfect’ fabric compliment to the rest of the design. A japanese fabric line Serenity, Diawabo fabric.  Searching online did not provide me with the exact shade of serenity that I glimsped a small piece of (in a fabric kit) at the quilt shop.

So I am making due with the main part of the borders using blue grey, and finally, one of the fabrics above has the perfect taupe color that will hopefully not detract too far from the colors of the rest of the quilt, but also frame it in the fun “darker” border I want to go with for this round.

Unfortunately the fabric with the taupe isn’t quite as “natural” of a setting as I would hope, but the colors match well enough.

I only wish I could have found the right color of taupe in the serenity line. The one that looked the closest online, in real life turned into much more of a brown shade instead of a taupe shade.

So we are heading toward the green a little bit with this quilt, but only a very very small amount of green. There is a small small smidge of green tint in the focus fabric – which the store clerk at one of the stores said was also from the same serenity fabric line – what a coincidence. So it should match up ok.

I am finally almost halfway done with the middle section of the blocks I finally decided to use.

The blocks are many, but they are fairly simple. And dramatic! Still a lot of work here. I have put undo pressure on myself to “outdo” myself on this round robin quilt, as I have on the ones past.

Here’s a very very narrow, small snippet of what I am working on. None of the finally found taupe in the picture below, but the two shades of grey that I couldn’t ‘unleach’ myself from once I saw them together next to the quilt.

36.3 You can take quilts outside?

October 21, 2014

I was able to visit a new experience for me last weekend – an outside quilt show at the arboretum.

It was labeled as a Quilt Walk, which was a show without vendors or quilt boutique/garage sale.

There were two sections of the park which quilts were tied to fences by zip ties and binder clips. It was a lovely fall day, with fall splendor colors splaying out for all to see.

The smaller quilts, which seemed more like me than the larger quilts, I found a quilt artist I contacted who is local who has a style of quilting that I admire.

I kept seeing Trisch Price’s quilts (author of Accentuate the Negative) and thinking how much I really liked her quilts.

Fibonacci!

And she did this technique that I am trying to decide if it is double applique or “magic binding” around the applique pieces, where the applique pieces is slightly outlined by another color pop, which I really admire and will show up in one of my quilts one day.

I like hats, as you may have noticed before if you have seen a picture of me lately. Cool hat quilt. – Mary Strege

And the larger quilts were also impressive.

Or hung over the rocks – these quilts were like the featured quilters’ quilts – very impressive!

And I saw 4 bed turnings! The first one was someone I have followed on flickr for a few years, that saw me at the only one meeting of the modern quilt guild meeting I’ve ever attended, and had the courage to talk to me, and I had the courage to talk to her at the show just before she did her own bed turning.

Bed turning was a table, layered with several quilts. We got the story of each quilt, an abbreviated story, like a mini trunk show. Which was so fantastic!

It was nice to see each artist and what they chose to display & talk about!

The quilts were even nice from a distance.

I wonder how many people who were there to visit the Monet garden got to see similar colors in the quilts!

36.1 Asymmetric Inspiration

August 29, 2014

In the last month I really kicked it out working on Tami’s Round Robin quilt.

The colors: Orange, green, black, beige, white (grey), yellow.

Here is what I believe is Tami’s original center block – forgive me if I missed a small border here.

tamis RR quilt original center

As you can see, very asymmetric, several colors going on, and YES textures & tucks.

So much inspiration from this piece – and from Tina & from Daisy who had the quilt before me.

The little green triangle things are sticking out from the fabric center, there are mock cathedral window things on the right hand side, and I don’t know what it’s called with the tucks that are sewn down flat that migrate in and out on the grey-white piece on the bottom.

Well.

The interplay of the fact that – hey – I have never made a quilt in this color pallet before – not really – the green / yellow / orange color pallet together is an interesting and inspiring combination for me.

I have started a whole fabric folding pinterest page in preparation for making my portion of this quilt.

I got really excited because several of my own batiks could be used in the making of this quilt too. This was a few of the initial ideas I had for this quilt.

darlas fabric considerations

The instructions for this round were to use the focus fabric in this round.

Tami had a plethora of fabrics and colors and textures of her own for this quilt.  Her focus fabric I took to be the dark fabric with the large wide red/green/orange flowers on it.

focus fabric trying out the background fabric

There was already a strip of the focus fabric in the quilt in another twilter’s round.  But this focus fabric really took my ideas and directed them.

I think I tweeted Tami about 15 times the first 2 weeks with different ideas and techniques I wanted to do with her quilt. But then trying to figure out how to play out this bigger print was giving me a little more thinking than I planned.

I tried one folded fabric very cool applique technique while sewing at my friend’s house.  It was moderately successful, it could have worked, and if I hadn’t gone another direction.

And then I thought about weaving fabric with even a different technique I saw with a new book.

That idea lasted for a while, but if I wanted to do weaving, it would have to be with a specific side, and I couldn’t get the focus fabric in that idea either. There were several possible techniques and books to draw info from these techniques from.

techniques to use for tami RR

I kept looking back and forth one of these books specifically. Where I finally got my direction from with my section of the quilt.

The book is Machine Stitched Cathedral Windows by by Shelley Swanland.

I was intrigued by several different patterns in the book, I tried to make the design from a general quilt to a border style.

So I read & figured out what Shelley was describing. It took reading & rereading and finally a light-bulb clicked on and it made sense.

a plan of foundation and frames

Unfortunately, there was an error / typo in this printing of her book, and staring at the corner pieces, looking at the required pieces to make this border the way I was considering was a little confusing.

I did get her FB page, and she sent me her email and we had a few lovely chats about the corner pieces.

In the meantime, while waiting for one of the emails in the email tag, I figured out the error in the foundation pieces and tried it, and sure enough, I got the thing to work.

And, this will come as no surprise to you if you know me, but she said that only maybe a handful of people even tried the isometric grid that I was working on. (A grid based off of 60 & 30 degree pieces — ie hexagons and equilateral triangles). So that made me feel swell.

fabrics for left side of tamis quilt

And then I was drawing out color schemes for the pieces, and then as I was coloring the diagrams in preparation for sewing, I decided that the edges didn’t really need to be all the way windowed as they would just be this impossible to see pieces with the dark focus fabric.

So I asked for her help, but didn’t need it anyway. It was sure nice to chat with Shelley anyway.

I did – and still do – plan to get a picture tutorial of how I worked on her pieces however, But since there are elements on this quilt that I am not going to show you yet, I will wait to work that out.

DSC07651

And in the meantime, I started forming a vision.  I did another drawing.

And then slowly the pieces started falling into place. One idea made another, made another and another.

And before I knew it, I had a really really wide border on one side. Of dark focus fabric.

I stretched this over to the top to make it a modified “L” color scheme – which had already been done with the previous two rounds of the quilt.

Oh I wish I could show you all the colors here. A quick too close up view of a corner should be good.

top left corner three darla elements one daisy corner

I tied the oranges back to the left side (already heavy on the right), the black, dark on the left, I wanted the light green from the original block to show back up on the right side.

But the left side was big. So one border is 12 inches, and the other is like 2 or 3.

I pulled yellow on three of my four sides to mellow it all out some.

small snippit tamis quilt bottom left corner

I repeated elements of 3 on 3 of the four sides.

I did put the isometric grid pieces in the quilt, but appliqued them as separate elements.

I also machine appliqued three other pieces down that I was originally just going to keep – throw-offs from mistakes in making the bottom side. I had just set them down on the top of the quilt to get them out of my way,  and they grew on me, and I threw them on the quilt too.

Whoo! There are lots of pieces. One design element was when I had ran out of focus fabric that was precut & I didn’t want to cut any more, so I added extra color And I like that happy mistake too.

Some of my fabrics threw elements of purple and elements of red that are not highly present in the fabrics that Tami sent. But they work.

The work as a whole, remains balanced in color (in my opinion) I also honored the general flow of clockwise that started of in the middle that was carried on by the previous two Round Robin twilters.

Here’s a cool cross section spanning one of the horizontal sections of the quilt from left to right showing here as top to bottom. (rotated)

horizontal cross-section of tamis RR quilt

And yes the previous cross-section shows elements of the other twilters’ pieces of the round robin.

I don’t even want to say how many elements I have in this quilt.  About 20. Ish.

Now for the journal, and then figuring out how to stuff this back into the box.

I will be sad to see it go.

35.8 Tina’s Colors and Round Robin unexpectedly finished

June 29, 2014

Let me preface this post first and foremost in saying this is not meant to complain about my round robin experience. Just in case you get the wrong idea later.

One of the BEST things about quilting is the differences you meet in styles.

I have yet to ‘really ever use’ a focus fabric, much less several, in determining a quilting color relationship.

Perhaps this makes my quilting color choices less successful than others.

Tina has 2 different but very similar focus fabrics.  She included wonderful fabrics in her round robin box in addition to the focus fabrics. A light yellow, a light pink, an olive green/brown tinted fabric, and the focus fabrics.

tinas fabrics

Daisy, being the first recipient of the round robin included a fabric that has a hint of grey.

The original block was a cute little paper piecing/applique (in portions) of a sewing machine, and a project being quilted.

tinas original center block

Daisy added a border (no spoilers except for the fabric had a hint of grey).

And my task is to add about a 4 inch pieced border that matches & frames the quilt so far.

These fabrics are so much fun, but they are just slightly different than the fabrics that I have in my stash.  I have been picking & pulling fabric off of my shelf, putting them next to Tina’s box, her start of her quilt, and her chosen fabrics.

Tina’s fabrics are great, but I am finding it a challenge and a blast to see if I can add to the quilt with fabrics of my own.

And yes, I know it did turn out well in the end. I trusted myself enough for that, and I did make a finish on my portion and I am so in love with it so far.

What I love about this project is that even if my fabrics are more saturated than Tina’s, that I can either find fabrics I own that match her style, or I can purchase a few other pieces to match the fabrics in this quilt project as well.

I did purchase 3 different fabrics of the same color scheme/design, one yellow, one grey, and one turquoise. It was a WONDERFUL excuse to get some more modern style fabric from a quilting friend Caitlyn at her very new shop “I Don’t Do Dishes“.  3 fabrics from that shop are in this quilt. :)

Here is the first small snippet.

darlas fabrics used in tinas quilt

It’s been very fun trying to match & compare the colors of what I have, seeing what concessions could be made, seeing how subtle the differences in olive green can be.

I have been playing around a version of borders from Judy Laquidara’s border book. It’s larger than the specified pieced border, but it is very Darla-like. And very symmetrical. So I am using it.

I am dreaming of windows when thinking of this border. Like what you would look through when sewing. I had another idea, but this one kept coming back to me. Windows. Is a generic hint about the border.

Here is some of my sketch made this morning trying to fit everything together. VERY small snippet here, too much farther away gives the border away.

sketch tinas small snippets

I decided to make the darker color grey to tie in with Daisy’s border instead of going with the dark brown suggested by the focus fabrics. But it’s the right shade of grey.

It’s very dark, but the darkness is pretty narrow. I used all 3 values in this border, and I had to repeat a motif in the middle of the top & bottom borders to get it to fit exactly.

Here’s an in-progress shot from this afternoon. Also a very small snippet.

small snippet of tinas fabrics in process

I started off this AM thinking of putting animals through the windows, not knowing when I would work on it. But today I decided to move on against the idea of animals, I got the whole border is completed today, not wanting to make any more decisions on this portion of the quilt.

Progress helped along with a great audiobook in the background.

Now I just have to finish writing in the journal. And send it off when ready. I can’t believe I am ready early. I am SO ready to be done with the 1 month due-dates and to slip back to the 2 month due-dates. Now that we are caught up with the 5 person group, that will happen. But then it will be put off until 2 weeks to go as well, because that’s how it is with me.

I mistakenly thought this was going to be a short, quick, easy round, and I do like what I did, and it was basically done in one day, but there are a lot of pieces here and so now back to my other projects. The lots of pieces are a main reason I decided to skip the animals, there is already SO much to look at on my round.

Sorry I can’t show much more here. I do hope Tina will like it and that it doesn’t detract the eyes too far away from the other parts. I may send along the dark grey fabric to help complete the quilt, but first I need to make absolutely sure I don’t need it in another project or that I can get my hands on more of it easily in case I do.

35.3 Starting to plan Dancing Ribbons Options

June 7, 2014

The quilt that has been finished f or a while – I recorded the end of January of 2013, is playing up in my mind for updating with a medallion setting.

I haven’t got incredibly far with options for this quilt, but I am thinking a couple of things already.

First I have a psuedo-star option which I like – don’t worry about the fabrics being a little busy, I will take care of that later if I chose this option.

dancing ribbons medallion choice1

I may need to go in and edit this block a little bit to make it more intricate. I don’t really like the off-balance I am attempting to do with the light & dark of the magenta, purple, and turquoise in the corners, but I think this may play off well with the alternating blues on the edges.

I do like this next design as well, which sorta mocks the dahlia look of the center ribbons quilt.

dancing ribbons medallion choice2

I like the circular look of the turquoise border, and there is a good color sense for the thin strips against the dark blue background, but maybe the points in the corners are not my favorite either.

The next design to share uses my good old friend applique in addition to piecing. And I haven’t found the right color balance with it either.

dancing ribbons medallion choice3

But it’s kind of cute. A cute way to frame the quilt without going too overboard. And I could always double ring the applique with a lighter or darker frame as a form of a shadow, which could give a different look.

Or I could do this pretty nice balanced block in the corner, but again struggle with how many of each of the 3 colors hit each corner.

dancing ribbons medallion choice4

Something to think about.

What I might do is to do some sort of celtic knot in the corners instead. I have a couple of books on celtic knots, and perhaps that will give me more of the look I am dreaming about for this quilt. Need to research & plan and design & think about it.

****************

In other somewhat related news, my first round of a round robin was sent off to the next person on our round robin today. I am happy with my portion of the block I received and I hope Daisy will be too. Of course when Daisy sees it, it will look completely different than it does now.  I am curious to see what I am getting next, but I am so far, deciding to avoid my “Round Robin Flickr group-A” because I am uncertain if I want to see my block progress or not. DON’T click the above link if you want to see your block and you are in the same group.

In other news there are two other groups as well. Group B & Group C. The idea of this round robin is fun. I hope the other two groups get more pictures up – currently there are only 3 pictures and 6 pictures. I just put my hand on the screen to be able to post the link to group A, so I don’t know for certain if there are more pictures or not, but I know a few weeks ago we had 6 or 7 and I just posted one more (without looking). Hoping to see the progress in the other two groups I am not part of, but it’s slightly early for this round as of this time.

I really liked the inverse of the block I created, it would have also been a really cool applique center of a round robin quilt. See? (sorta) – small snippet only is available for you.

small snippet of inverse of daisy round robin

Was going to post the entire inverse block here, but that would be too revealing to what I actually made. Or it could be. And of course these don’t actually line up, I wasn’t being incredibly accurate when placing them down on the sides of the block as those sections are in actuality on the opposite corners of the quilt.

It’s a darn good thing I have weekends to sew. Not getting a ton done the rest of the week. Having a happy time sewing & designing today!

Take care!
