Where's Perry?

Perry The Platypus

Perry the Platypus is my favorite (dare I say it) character from the Phineas and Ferb show.

I found this pattern online somewhere, and for the life of me can not find it again.

I made him out of old jeans, and he looks great.

Some interesting fact about Perry;

Animal Type: Platypus
Color: Teal
Height: 6 inches
Weight: 4 pounds
Age: 9 years old
Owner: The Flynn family
Hobbies: Secret agent, and as far as his family knows, nothing.

Please find some other patterns on my Free Patterns page here.

That was great fun, the finished patterns will be worked in to my Project of Doom quilt.

“Yes, Harry Potter!” said Dobby at once, his great eyes shining with excitement. “And if Dobby does it wrong, Dobby will throw himself off the topmost tower, Harry Potter!”

POD Quilt along Week 3

Week three in the Quilt along, Project of Doom.

Jennifer decided to make to new variations for the block, one for the good side and one for the bad side, the dark arts. This was fun, and I decided to also make the dark arts block, as my quilt will be double the size of the plan POD quilt. So the dark arts blocks will be on the outer edges of the quilt.

POD Quilt a long 2015

POD Quilt a long 2015

It is with great excitement that the new Project of doom Quilt a long (POD Quilt a long 2015) for 2015 was announced late last year. The super vibe that swept through the Facebook Group Project of Doom, (click on the name or here to go through and find out about this fantastic quilting project) was and still is awesome. The POD is based on the Harry Potter Movies. Yes it is still very popular.

On 7 January 2015 we received our first pattern Week 1 on the Fandom of Stitches Website. Once a week every Wednesday we will get a new pattern to make, until the 30th week, when we will be working on stitching all the blocks together to make up the complete quilt that will look like a bookcase.

POD Quilt a long 2015

Fandom in Stitches Week 1 Pattern for Project of Doom

This is my attempt for Pattern Week 1, which is found here.

I absolutely love quilting, and especially paper piecing. Every week I will add a new post with my new finished block and a link to the pattern.

Unfortunately I did not think about showing how I sewed the block. But will include it into my next post based on POD 2015.

Scrapbusting Quilts

Scrapbusting Quilts

A recent return from a heart-wrenching trip early in December, inspired me to make a “Remembrance” Quilt, not sure what to call it.

After color sorting through the scraps brought back from my trip, I decided on a lovely purple scrap quilt block. Deciding against making a full-sized quilt, I made a runner, the accent piece you put at the end of your bed?

Here is the pattern.

Scrapbusting QuiltsThe entire block is 20 inches x 20 inches.

Each little purple scrap is 2 inches x 2 inches. With all the measurements, you need to add a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Just measure the white strips to match the sides of the purple, stitch them all together. Wah la.

This is the finished square.

quilt-2I then just added five squares together to make my runner. Done.

This quilt is made in honor of my aunt Estella Alexandria Du Preez, whom I loved very much. She was a quilter and a seamstress most of her life, and I loved messaging with her my latest creations, and pinning stuff from Pinterest with her. She sadly passed away on 8 December 2014 from advanced Leukemia, Lymphoma and a Tumor on her stomach. These scraps were from her fabric stash I brought back with me after the funeral. I really miss her a lot, especially today, when I finished my first quilt after she passed away and I wanted to message her a picture, then realized she’s not there anymore. I had a little cry, then decided to dedicate this post to Aunt Stella.
