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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Thanks for all your feedback on this #wip so far!!! 😊New plan on this quilt, after I’ve wrapped my head around how much I can manage and not entirely happy with some seams coming together.... remaining work divided into better waypoints to split long strips less. Video made with Photoshop + Dropbox + imgPlay. #quilt #quilting #sewing #fabric #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #makemodern #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsoct2018 #originaldesign #showusyourmqg #applique #juki #aurifil #aurifilthread #sew #makemodern #alisonglass #kaleidoscope ...

Pressing seams open here, my usual approach. Except for a couple of slippery seams 😁 #quilt #quilting #sewing #fabric #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #makemodern #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsoct2018 #originaldesign #showusyourmqg #applique #juki #aurifil #aurifilthread #sew #makemodern #alisonglass #kaleidoscope ...

Onto the blues and aquas on this current #wip. But probably a no-sew day because of mom duties! #quilt #quilting #sewing #fabric #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #makemodern #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsoct2018 #originaldesign #showusyourmqg #applique #juki #aurifil #aurifilthread #sew #makemodern #alisonglass #kaleidoscope ...

Four blocks. My first couple of blocks were more wonky than I hoped, as I was working out the process. I may go back and fix a few seams, but for now I move forward. #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 […]
