1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Cutting 9 patch blocks on: October 31, 2012 08:26:27 AM
Thank you for your reply and help!! The quilt blocks coming apart would worry me.  Baby quilts do get a LOT of use... I will give the quilt a go using singular piecing.   Wink Your quilt is BEAUTIFUL btw!! Very woodsy!!
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Cutting 9 patch blocks on: October 29, 2012 11:48:31 AM
I want to make a baby quilt using a 9 patch pattern in a selection of purple fabrics with one grey block in the centre. Unfortunately all instructions for strip cutting is for just two colours forming a sort of flower pattern.  The design I want is more mixed random print squares with a grey centre.  I can't work out how to strip cut to achieve this pattern design. Can anyone help?

It was heaps of fun to make.  Oh!  I just noticed that I took these pics before I sewed up the turning gap..Oops! Undecided
It's done now I promise.. Wink  anyway, what do you think?

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Winter Coloured Necktie Dress on: November 22, 2010 05:12:01 AM
This necktie halter dress was sewn in brown, green, russets and navy blue.
24 ties and one zip went into the making.  A few improvements have been made to the design since my last dress (see last topic)
The bustline is lower.  The neckline is two ties aranged into a bow, and the sash twists at the back and ties at the front.  
Ties have absolutly no give so getting it to cup the bust is a job and a half! Lucky im not so well endowed..lol
anyway...What do you think?

Thanks everyone! The dress was sewn together using a ziz zag stitch (4.5, 0.9) just butting them toether and sewing from the wide end up.  For the ones the overlapped in the bust area I just did the same, sewing the edge down to the tie underneath.  And evilpixie?  I love the idea of a paisley one!! That would be beautiful!
