1  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: EPP Hexie Fabric Swap! Sign-ups closed;Send-out by August 20, 2016 on: Today at 07:47:57 AM
You ladies are great!!

My stress, as I sit here spending time on Craftster, revolves more around the colossal amount of work I have to get done this week. The heat has been limiting what I can do. But, I did just get a new AC unit yesterday, so it should help tremendously! I have to go to an outdoor wedding today, under a tent, with temps in the 90s. I imagine I won't be staying late! But, I'll need to muster up the energy to get something accomplished tonight (like setting up the new AC).

I'm getting a new sofa on Saturday, so after it's delivered I'll be able to sit in front of the AC and stitch Smiley

I think, if you want finished hexies, a split is good. Half stitched, and half squares?

That would mean 12 and 12 (the swap description says 24...because it was easily divisible by 6 in case someone needed hexies for flowers). I think I could do 12 stitched hexies for everyone. That's only 84 Smiley

Okay, I feel better now Smiley Thank you ladies! But remember, don't stitch any for me Smiley

quaggy, the finished item is still open as a "negotiated option." So, people can communicate within the group if they want to exchange one.

And, Immaculata, I think that quilt shop will be a place to stop into whenever I head out to my sister's, if I have time. And, I'll definitely be visiting the fabric outlet again! I go that way often, and it will be hard not to stop in every time I pass by!

It definitely looks like a beginner could manage it. And, the sample quilt on the pattern was not nearly as beautiful. I never would have looked twice at the pattern if the sample wasn't so striking!

So pretty! I wish I didn't have at least crochet 6 WIPs to tackle. Never mind the other WIPs I have!

The last leaf is incredible!  You have such embroidery talent!

Thanks! The leaf itself is cut from a piece of fabric and fused to a backing piece. I sort of cheated Smiley

I think this round, there were a lot of nice techniques to try out!  I am going through the gallery and pinning ideas for my own patches and future rounds!

I agree! I feel that every round gets better and better! Inspiration abounds, and people are not afraid to try new things.

Animal!!!!! I love that patch! And, it's a good thing you don't live nearby, because I would steal it! Seriously. The Dr. Who patch is also amazing- I never thought about using a gutta resist with fabric paint or acrylic paint. In my mind it was for silk dyes only, so thanks for the info, Wulf!

My partner received today, so I'm going to post pics for her Smiley

First is "Fall Tree," which took a long time to stitch! But, I think it was worth it Smiley




Next is "The Last Leaf," and I stitched the branch over a felt base (I don't know if it qualifies as stump work), and the leaf is free hanging.




And finally, a very simple (and possibly in need of additional embellishment) extra patch, "Fiesta Ware."

Okay, I don't mean for this to have a "snarky" tone, so please don't read it that way. To save my sanity, if you said something along the lines of "if you want to" or "either is fine" in answer to the question about receiving stitched hexies, I'm going to opt for no Smiley There's no way I can get over 150 hexies stitched by the send-out date. I'm a little nervous about getting 96 done!

I think, when we were doing 1, 2, or 3 partners, the option for stitched hexies was more manageable (and I could partner people who wanted them). Once we switched to the whole group, I didn't do the math- 7 people at 24 stitched hexies each is 168 hexies! I don't have a road trip coming up Smiley

Again, no tone (even though I am slightly cranky from the heat). Smiley

July 18th Check In

I've been focused on swap stuff, but yesterday, as part of said swap stuff, I did a bit of fabric shopping at some local (not JoAnn fabrics) shops. And, another shop today... But, yesterday, in one of the shops they had a gorgeous quilt on display. It looked simple, and they had a kit for it! So, I splurged and bought the kit. I might try the pattern first and use my Star Wars fat quarter stack, if it works out right.

Here's what the quilt kit should make:



The pattern is called Half Moon Bay, if I read it right.

Great fabrics, MareMare! And, you're right, you should make that pouch right away!

And, this morning I had to meet my sister for a Zentangle class, and when I got there, she wasn't quite ready to go. So, I had about 15 minutes to kill. And, could you believe there was a little quilt shop right next door? When I told the very nice lady what I was doing, she pointed me to a couple of baskets of fat 16ths (or slightly bigger). Ten for $5!  I bought 40 Grin

Behold...



I think I have enough fabric for the swap now Smiley And I still haven't dug through my stash!

Yeah, I definitely spoiled myself! I need to dig through my stash to add to it- some of this fabrics were to fill requests. I did the best I could! Smiley
