Don't Be A Dick Quilt



Now that I know this beauty made it's way from Canada to Australia safely, I am so excited to share this quilt, finally finished. This was really HARD to give away.

The DontBeADickQuilt was made with LOVE and entirely from stash.

I have never been drawn to using purples much, in all of my previous quilting projects. But when I had decided on an approximate size for this quilt, I went digging for background and backing options. And I found Purple Heaven.

Selections for the piecing of the Fox Napping, on the reverse side of this quilt, began with Tula Pink. All the other fabrics were chosen based on her Fox Nap in Mint print pallet and that is how the Michael Miller minty Dumb Dot in Lagoon got sucked in for making the ears and face markings on the fox, as well as for the binding.





The Dear Stella grey dot was used for the background piecing the Fox Napping on the back of the quilt, as well as for the piecing of all the rows of dicks on the front of the quilt. The Lotta Jansdotter - Follie print ties in the grey from the Dear Stella to the purple from the Tula Pink. And there you have it. What a gorgeous FFF 3sum! You will notice how I didn't make any mention of Michael Miller? Hee hee

And speaking of binding.... Did your eye catch that little fleck effect???

That is an official #mollisparklesapproved Glitterati special edition. The recipient of this quilt, Molli Sparkles, developed this Glitter Flecked Binding method which you can read about here. Did I happen to mention that link includes a full frontal of Molli Sparkles dontbeaDICKquilt?











Molli Sparkles developed this block design. And when we decided to do a quilty exchange, I knew I wanted to make him and his partner Adam a very special gift. I have been following Molli Sparkles on his quilting/blogging/life journey for many years now. Stop that right now! It's not called stalking if the person doesn't know you are doing it. So anyways.... Molli and Adam have recently been facing a few health hurdles. To see the love and support they have for each other, warms my heart!!! And then whammo. Molli loses his brother in a tragic accident. Bam 

Really don't be a dick about this quilt!!!!! 
  
This quilt isn't about DICK. Penis. Genitalia. Body parts. It is about LOVE.

The fact that I love me a big dick quilt is secondary.








Speaking of dicks, I really am all about support and inclusivity. So I decided to add my own dick to the line up. I mean seriously. Since I am putting my nuts on the line by even posting about this unusual quilt.

That being said, those who know me, know that I am someone you can count on to be more than willing to take one for the team so, here goes!


I am putting my putting my balls on the line to make a point. 
Don't discriminate - add pink to your rainbow!!! LOL!!!





Modified strap on block developed. Strap on a pair. Includes 3D matching ties and XL SIZE. Those of you with a seasoned eye will have already noticed, this row has bigger blocks. When it comes to dildos, if you are going to go with a store bought model, whether it be for your partner or personal use, I think you really aught to get the biggest bang for your buck.





Speaking of BUCKS... Mmmmmm

I decided to flank my pretty pink penis with some other modified blocks. See I told you. I truly am all about inclusivity.







Now a little more about this Don'tBeADickQuilt pattern. The blocks finish at 12" wide by 18" tall. The pattern includes instructions for both versions - circumsized and uncircumsized. Please don't be fooled into thinking that the uncircumsized blocks are going to be easier or quicker to make... Ironically there is more trimming involved with the untrimmed dicks when you convert them to a fabric based medium.

You can find the pattern here.

Please. Be careful when clipping threads. We don't want any accidental circumcisions.








The "#DontBeADickQuilt" quilt finished at 81" x 86"


labels ordered from Ikaprint.







Goodnight boys! Sleep tight!

I’ve been keeping up with the block a week of the Harry Potter quilt. I really like how you present your patterns. I don’t use social media except for email and surfing the net, so I don’t know what kind of feedback you’re getting on the sew along.
Thank you, Lorna. From Dorene

Let's Bee Social #263

Welcome to the Let's Bee Social!








This week I have a whole lot of finishes to share. But they are all from my readers!!!!! 




Hi Lorna,

I wanted to send you  a few pictures of a quilt I recently  finished using your patterns. I'm not one to leave well enough alone, so I adapted the twin size to a baby size instead of using your pattern the way it was written. I wanted all the animals, and then some, so of course I made myself much more work. All the patterns are yours, just not quite in the layout you had worked out.  

When I was almost finished sashing the top, my daughter came in and said, "But where are the tails for the elephant and giraffe?"  I said that I was almost done and I wasn't ripping it apart to add tails. Uh huh. Sure. Of course I did it ! And made them 3 D to boot. Kids!! 

The male lion took me 4 1/2 hours to piece. Wow. I really do sew slowly!  Anyway, I had a lot of fun and my niece (who had done her baby's room up in safari theme) loved it!  I had done your Forest Friends baby quilt in the summer for a different niece (adapted that one too cause I just can't do anything the easy way) and that she loved it as well. Then I made pillows for the two older siblings using their favourite animal from the quilt. I think I sent you a picture of that one in the fall. 

Thanks again for making such lovely patterns. I hope all is well with you and your family. Heather MacDonald













I just finished this quilt. My 11 year old grandson stitched the birch trees and some of the background! I did the foxes and quilting. This was a great first project for him! If I did it again I would add a 2” border in the same color as the sky/background. Thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of the piecing. The directions were very clear. Thank you!  Lori Hollis







Hi,  I'm doing the laying pipe quilt. The instructions for the couplings seem incorrect. I cut according to your measurements, but when sewn together they don't match the pipe pieces. Please see the attached picture. As far as I can tell the red and orange coupling pieces should finish at 1" and 2" to attach to the pipe. Please advise ASAP. I'm at retreat and quite frustrated. Thanks for any help you can offer.

(We conversed and I corrected the cutting chart for the couplings)

Problems with drips though. They are smaller than your drawing, so the background pieces don’t fit. 

(We conversed more and I corrected the cutting chart for the drips)

Your directions were great and easy to follow. It was just those measurements that threw a wrench (no pun intended) into things. Sue Decker

Hi, Lorna;

I am not tech savvy enough to be able to link up to show my quilt blocks, so I am emailing them. I am sorry to be such a dork. Luna was a real challenge for me. I had a hysterectomy last week, so I have been unable to stitch up Snape. I will definitely get to it as soon as I can. Thank you for this quilt along. You are really awesome. Also, thank you for the sale on the fox blocks. Very cool. Karen Gardner
