    Sharing Our Quilts -- Day 4: Scooby Doo and Stomp, Too!

    Good morning!

    Today I am sharing a couple of projects never before seen on the forum.

    In 2018, my employer decided we needed a mascot. When the dust settled on the selection process, the mighty Triceratops was chosen. His name is Stomp. I bought a t-shirt with logo the first week they came out (January 2019). I looked at the logo on the t-shirt, and wondered if I could re-create it in appliqué. The answer was yes! I downloaded a picture of logo, flipped it (mirror image) and printed it out on label paper. I applied heat n bond to the fabric, put the label over the paper of the heat n bond, and used it to cut out the shapes. It wasn’t until later I discovered heat n bond made sheets that could go through an ink jet printer!

    The border is strip piecing. I got the idea from a Facebook live video with Jenny and Misty. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oPvjNpGMbk. I quilted the project on my embroidery machine. The wall hanging lives in my office at work. The boss went nuts for it, and told me she wanted a pillow with just the black border and the appliqué. I told her no, but surprised her with a pillow for her birthday.

    The baby quilt I made for the boss’s grand baby (just shared last month), probably makes a lot more sense now!

    I have been a huge Scooby Doo fan ever since I was a kid. My Ohio sister buys me a Scooby Doo ornament from Hallmark every year. In 2017, there was a Scooby Doo fabric line. I discovered it at the tail end of its run, and fabric supplies were very limited. I managed to snag a fat quarter bundle, and turned it into a Super Simple Squares quilt. M* did the quilting, the design name is “ghostly.” They did such a good job blending the thread, they are hard to see. I took a close up pic for you.

    The last quilt is the ugliest quilt I have ever made. I had a few squares left over from my Scooby quilt, and decided to try a disappearing nine patch. The quilt was also a test run for quilting with my embroidery machine.

    Thank you for looking!

    These are so fun! Congratulations on the successful logo interpretation! No wonder your boss loved it! And I love your simple squares quilt! I’ve made several and they are not that simple since there are so many seams to match! But they are good looking quilts! And it is good to have quilt tops to use as practice for the longarm. Sometimes they turn out much prettier once they are quilted and work their way out of the “ugly” category!

      These look like fun projects to make. You did a great job on the logo. A Scooby quilt couldn’t possibly be ugly!

            How can you go wrong with Scooby Doo? It's hard to believe it's been over 50 years since he first appeared on TV. I can remember watching the very first episode. Loved the triceratops also!

            There's nothing more directly linked to who we are than the fabric that we make.

                        Thanks for sharing the 'never before seen' quilts. Ugly is only in the eye of the beholder. LOL
