TTMT #646 – Bling Box

In which I share my artist supply box turned jewelry box and a peek at one of our Halloween projects! The purple/orange lights were are battery operated and we found them at Target. I didn’t make a note of the manufacturer, sorry about that! The Silent Auction is this weekend and I am sure you’re ready to stop hearing about it. Thank you for watching! ♥

TTMT #644 – Bendy & the Backyard

TTMT #642 – Field Trip & DIY Dead Bar

TTMT #641 – Shhhh…It’s done!

In which I share the finished wedding quilt. I don’t usually do a reveal before gifting, but I think it’s safe to share! The quilt is being shipped this afternoon and should be there by the end of the week and certainly before the wedding!

The quilt is a nine-patch on point with 9″ finished squares. I didn’t really use a pattern, just “sketched” it out in EQ8 to get an idea of colors and then winged it!

I apologize for the crazy noise. It’s super hot here and my neighbor’s air conditioning turned on and off a couple of times as I recorded.

❗❗❗SCAM ALERT – STOLEN QUILT PHOTOS❗❗❗

The quilt photo thieves are back. In late 2018, online sellers began to pop up claiming to sell fandom and other quilts.

They are back. The image captured here comes up when you search for “harry potter bookcase quilt.”

These quilt photos are STOLEN from Fandom in Stitches Designers or community members. The quilt listed as a “selvage bookshelf quilt” is my own Project of Doom, designed and made by me. No doubt there are other fandoms and creators whose work has been stolen.

The first time this happened, we spent many hours sending emails and requesting these fake products be taken down. Almost none of them were. The Better Business Business Bureau got involved and those businesses were shut down.

Three years ago when this happened, I personally received angry messages from people who had spent money on what they thought were Harry Potter Bookcase quilts. They received NOTHING and thought that I was the one selling these quilts.

It saddens me that this has happened again. These companies are not in the U.S. and getting the websites taken down is almost impossible. What is NOT impossible is getting their ads blocked and alerting innocent people who think they are getting a bargain.

Please know that neither I nor Fandom in Stitches or its designers sell fandom quilts or quilt-related projects. We do not sell fandom patterns. We don’t sell photos of our work to use for reproduction. Our patterns are fan art created out of the love for our fandoms. All patterns shared on andominstitches.com are free for personal & non-profit use only.

If you see ads online for Fandom quilts or quilts you KNOW were made by a creator, please report them if at all possible.

TTMT #639 – Busy At Home

I’ve been getting a TON of stuff done and almost none of it is crafting or sewing, but DIY and loads of cleaning around the house. What little I’ve done is crocheting on the baby blanket I’ve been working on. I hope you are all safe & well. ♥

TTMT #638 – Sunshine & Whales

In which I share a gift made for a friend.

Happy 15th birthday to my daughter’s cat, Marie! She’s been part of our family since my daughter was in middle school & Marie was a kitten!

I apologize for the crazy lighting from the video filmed today. I didn’t realize how the shifting clouds were affecting the lighting until after I’d recorded. Fortunately, it’s a short one!
