Quilt: October 2018

I’m finally getting around to sharing this quilt on my gallery! This design was created via code (generative art), and it was inspired by my previous improv quilt. When I was making that improv quilt, I wondered if I could emulate my decision making via code, and here is the result of that experiment. The “product” of the generative art was an SVG that I brought into Photoshop and divided into sections to complete that would minimize breaking long colored strips.

The quilt was pieced with Alison Glass Kaleidoscope (ombre), Robert Kaufman white kona cotton, and Aurifil 50 wt thread on my Juki. The backing is an aqua strip from Alison Glass Road Trip. Warm and Natural cotton batting was used, and combined with Aurifil 50 wt. straight line quilting via a walking foot. Because this quilt is all about the piecing, the quilting design was simple in outlining the colors.

Quilt is finished, photographed, submitted. Hooray. Take that, Monday. #quilt #quilting #sewing #fabric #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #makemodern #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsoct2018 #originaldesign #showusyourmqg #applique #juki #aurifil #aurifilthread #sew #makemodern #alisonglass #kaleidoscope #agkaleidoscope #piecing #pieced #machinepieced #andoverfabrics #machinequilt #machinequilting #walkingfoot ...

A favorite finish for today’s #igquiltfest. This one is up there for me - combining my favorite strips, a rainbow @alisonglass color palette, and design generated via code! #quilt #quilting #sewing #fabric #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #makemodern #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsoct2018 #originaldesign #showusyourmqg #applique #juki #aurifil #aurifilthread #sew #makemodern #alisonglass #kaleidoscope #agkaleidoscope #piecing #pieced #machinepieced #andoverfabrics #machinequilt #machinequilting #walkingfoot #momlife ...

I’ve been tinkering with some code generated designs, to mimic the improv style that I tried in my current quilt. More tinkering needed, but here’s where I’m at with this. Mostly JavaScript based, but in theory it could really be done in many code languages. #quiltdesign #quilt #code #javascript #d3js #generativeart #art #modern #modernquilting #modernquilts #sewing #making #webcode #stephskardalquiltsoct2018 ...

Trying to wrap my head around my next quilt design. Another quilt design generated via JavaScript and d3js, using @alisonglass’ #kaleidoscope palette. I’ve needed to do some smaller sewing projects before I can work up the motivation to work through this! 😬😬😬 #quiltdesign #quilt #code #javascript #d3js #generativeart #art #modern #modernquilting #modernquilts #sewing #making #webcode #showusyourmqg #stephskardalquiltsoct2018 ...

I’ve gotten a few, “Are you really going to make this quilt?” The answer: Yep, that’s the plan. Fabrics sorted today, and I divided the design into 10”x10” squares. Hopefully tomorrow I can start on this first one! #quiltdesign #quilt #code #javascript #d3js #generativeart #art #modern #modernquilting #modernquilts #sewing #making #webcode #showusyourmqg #stephskardalquiltsoct2018 ...

New month, new week, new project. This one will take some time! Already had to do some fixing of my t-bar position to make sure my quarter inch seam is accurate. 😬 #quilt #quilting #sewing #fabric #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #makemodern #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsoct2018 #originaldesign #showusyourmqg #applique #juki #aurifil #aurifilthread #sew #makemodern #alisonglass #kaleidoscope ...

One inch strips, my old friends!!!! My pile of sorted colors for the current #wip. I’m working from the top left to bottom right so I don’t have to be bouncing around on colors too much. This is what I’ve cut so far. #quilt #quilting #sewing #fabric #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #makemodern #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsoct2018 #originaldesign #showusyourmqg #applique #juki #aurifil #aurifilthread #sew #makemodern #alisonglass #kaleidoscope ...

    […] I brought the SVG / design into Photoshop to break down into small components. Having worked on the previous quilt, I had a sense of how much piecing I could accomplish in 1 – 2 hour spurts of sewing time […]
