A moment of inspirations

I don't know where it came from, but I just had this imagine in my head for a pillow and this is what I ended up with. My son said it'd also make a good lap top slever and I almost did it, but maybe next time.

These along with many of my other great creations can be found for sale on my website Scrappy Creations.

Quilted Wolf Table Runner or Wall Hanging

This one I am extremly proud of. The inspiration just came to me one day to use the two wolf blocks I had. I decided to do a table runner with a simple quilt block between the wolf blocks. I didn't know what I was going to do for the quilting until I had the layer together. The center block was the first one to come to me with a couple different feather designs.

Then I used the wolf images to dictate the quilting of those blocks. My favorite part of the quilt is the back. I love the way the metalic thread just pops on the dark blue fabric.

Dream Catcher

I just realized that I never posted when I finished my Lone Star Native American Quilt that I call "Dream Catcher." In the center I free motion quilted a Dream Catcher with the feathers hanging below into the two bottom points of the star. In the other star points I free motion quilted alternating arrow and double feather designs. In the squares I just stiched the outlines of the Indian motif. My husband just loved it and talked me into finding a way to put it on our bed. The cream colored comforter I had works great under it and even shows it quit well. I also made a ruffle that is under that and goes to the floor to cover up the sides of my bed. This quilt was quit an accomplishment!

Exciting Day

Today I sold my Hummingbird pillow that I had made of upcycled fabric from work. It was a beautifull pillow, just didn't match my house. Then the same gal commissioned me to make a lap quilt for her. This one shall be interesting as she is really into Gothic and Spider Webs. The quilt will be a crazy scrap quilt with that theme in mind. She will provide the supplies, but it sounds like deep purples, back, silver and such will be the colors. This one be interesting, but I think really fun to do. I'll post pics when I finish.

I've also completed the start and two of the framed train pictures on my sons "Patriotic Train" quilt. It's coming along quit nicely. I've got the next five days off work, so I plan to do a lot of work on his quilt and post pictures soon.

I can't even concintrate at work today. I can't wait to get home and do some more sewing!!!!
