To be a bit cliché, this shoemaker is a professional Web Developer and her child is this blog, but it was past time to launch what I have of a new design. All the content is still here, everything else is a work in progress (kind of like most of my sewing projects)!
I’ve been in love with Curious Nature—and every quilt I’ve seen made with it—since it was released this past Spring. When the ebook Geared for Guys started making rounds, and Julie of Jaybird Quilts showed us the “Gamer” quilt, I was inspired with the perfect project for Curious Nature.
See, Carl just turned the big three-oh. He’s having a bit of an existential crisis about it, and we all know how cuddling under a hand-made quilt can help with that. But, he’s not a gamer (we have a Game Cube… somewhere… that gets used for Mario Kart maybe once a year). He is a cyclist, so I give you “Cyclist”:
It is larger than Gamer: around 70″ square (because there are more letters and because he likes square lap quilts). The background is Quilter’s Linen in Charcoal.
For various reasons, I haven’t been doing much sewing since my last post. Yesterday, I finally got back in the sewing room to finish up a quilt top I’ve been working on. Unfortunately, I’m about two weeks behind… I had hoped to finish the quilting by tomorrow—bound and all.
But, my delay doesn’t change the rush I felt last night when this crazy plan of mine all came together correctly. You’re just going to have to wait a bit before you can see the finished project. Moof is a great sneak peak guard.
I have a few projects going at the moment. It’s a bit ADD of me, but I blame all the wonderful inspiration I keep getting from everywhere. Really, I’m just letting you know that it’s going to be a while before I post about finished projects.
The first one I’m working on is a challenge for my quilt club. It has to be done by our end of the year banquet on June 18. Unfortunately, this is one of those projects that is looking better in my head than in execution, but I still have work to do.
