Quilt: May 2018

I started this quilt back in mid-February, and it’s seen me through two bad sicknesses (flu, strep), two trips with baby Ingrid (QuiltCon and a technical conference), three(!) family birthdays and a few other ups and downs over the three months of other making. In that time, I also finished one wall quilt, this mini quilt, and 3 other mini quilts. Needless to say, I am happy to have finally finished it in mid-May!

This original design quilt was designed in Photoshop. It was machine pieced and machine quilted with a walking quilt on my Juki machine using Aurifil 50wt white thread. The quilt top piecing is made of Kona cotton solids, and the back was made with some solids hanging around in my stash.

I’m hoping to enter this in a couple quilt shows in the future, and I’ll share more photos and write more in detail about the inspiration behind the quilt design and color choices. In the meantime, enjoy the work in progress photostream below!

It’s go time... this one is going to take a while. #quilt #quilting #quilts #sewing #machinequilting #machinequilted #aurifil #aurifilthread #wip #quiltinprogress #stephskardalquiltswip #originaldesign #photoshop #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #machinepiecing #machinepieced #juki #konacotton #machinequilted #machinequilting #stephskardalquiltsmay2018 ...

It’s going... and going and going. I’d estimate still 5-10 more hours of quilting — lots of podcasts!! #quilt #quilting #quilts #sewing #machinequilting #machinequilted #aurifil #aurifilthread #wip #quiltinprogress #stephskardalquiltswip #originaldesign #photoshop #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #machinepiecing #machinepieced #juki #konacotton #machinequilted #machinequilting #stephskardalquiltsmay2018 ...

Getting a very modest start on my next full size quilt.

Today’s #igquiltfest prompt is inspiration. I can’t pinpoint one source of inspiration, so I’m sharing a #wip and a list instead. My inspiration includes: lines, graphic art, textiles, op art, negative space, doing challenging things, making original pieces, mixing hard and soft, people. #quilt #quilting #quilts #sewing #machinequilting #machinequilted #aurifil #aurifilthread #wip #quiltinprogress #stephskardalquiltswip #originaldesign #photoshop #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #machinepiecing #machinepieced #juki #konacotton #stephskardalquiltsmay2018 ...

This is about as far as this quilt will get until Friday, sadly. But hopefully I’ll have some other quilty things to share here before then!! #quilt #quilting #quilts #sewing #machinequilting #machinequilted #aurifil #aurifilthread #wip #quiltinprogress #stephskardalquiltswip #originaldesign #photoshop #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #machinepiecing #machinepieced #juki #konacotton #stephskardalquiltsmay2018 ...

It took me all week to get here. ~200 strips later. I think I’m finally getting over this bad virus, but now biggest sis is home sick. We need a win here. #wip #sewing #quilt #quilting #quilts #handmade #quiltsofinstagram #machinepieced #machinepiecing #aurifil #aurifilthread #juki #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #makemodern #modernquilting #modernquilt #modernquilts #konacotton #originaldesign #quiltinprogress #javascript #codequilt #coding #essexlinen #quilttop #stephskardalquiltswip #stephskardalquiltsmay2018 ...

Blockity block block block. Finally getting back to a project I started before QuiltCon, the flu, and various quilt challenges/deadlines. #quilt #quilting #quilts #sewing #machinequilting #machinequilted #aurifil #aurifilthread #wip #quiltinprogress #stephskardalquiltswip #originaldesign #photoshop #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #machinepiecing #machinepieced #juki #konacotton #stephskardalquiltsmay2018 ...

After much seam ripping and a few failures, I worked out the wonkiness before I’m on mom duty the rest of the day. Ingrid wanted to see what all the fuss was about when I went to take a photo. #quilt #quilting #quilts #sewing #machinequilting #machinequilted #aurifil #aurifilthread #wip #quiltinprogress #stephskardalquiltswip #originaldesign #photoshop #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #machinepiecing #machinepieced #juki #konacotton #stephskardalquiltsmay2018 ...
