"Film at Five" quilt in progress

This one is coming along ... Inspired by the "Film at Five" quilt design I saw in this tutorial by WeddingDressBlue:

This little quilt is made with a bunch of bright, fun batiks, and unbleached muslin.

I love it so far ... Mine is smaller than the tutorial -- It's a baby quilt, about 50" x 50".

Here's a picture of the partially-assembled quilt top.

T.A.R.D.I.S. quilt in progress

This one is almost done ... By special request from my oldest daughter. 

It's a T.A.R.D.I.S. quilt ... My own design, made of recycled T-shirts, based on the "Dr. Who" TV series.

The piecing is done. The lettering is done. The quilting is in progress.

I'll post more pictures after it's quilted.

Knitting Socks

For several months, I've been knitting these awesome fall-colored, striped socks. Last week, I finished them - just in time for Fall weather!

Have I mentioned how much I love self-striping sock yarn?! Watching the colorful (predictable) stripe patterns emerge just keeps the (repetitive) knitting process so interesting!

These are made from Heart & Sole's "Razzle Dazzle" sock yarn. Washable. Partly wool. Super-soft. These are now among my favorite cozy wintertime socks!

Little Zig-zag Quilt

I've been working on this here and there for a while ... Right now, it's about 35 inches square. Might add borders, or more rows, but for now, it's progress!

Batik Double Wedding Ring Progress

This Double Wedding Ring quilt top is coming together slowly, but surely. Every now and then, I pull it out and work on it. Several days ago, I spent some time adding to this one.

Right now, it just needs a couple more rows of circle units added, and then the center with be done. After that, it'll get an order border of the same navy as the background.

I love the way the bright colors look against the dark navy background.

Green T-Shirt Squares, Minecraft-Style

I got this quilt top pieced, from green T-Shirt squares. I'm getting it ready to quilt it onto fleece.
For the T-Shirt/fleece combination, I usually like to quilt straight diagonal lines, to minimize the shifting and stretching that sometimes happen when quilting T-Shirts.

This Minecraft-style quilt is almost done ...

This quilt is ready to quilt ... It's for my youngest son, who's a big fan of the Minecraft video game. (This one's made of T-Shirt fabric, backed with fleece ... Super cozy!) I find it fun to put together the bits and pieces that look not only quilt-y, but also Minecraft-y!
