2  my paper tape dress form in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by perky on: June 04, 2009 02:27:17 PM

i decided to learn how to sew clothes this summer (i'm a quilter) so i thought i could use a dress form. i think i wrapped the tape too tight - i only did 1-2 layers because i couldn't breathe!

3  quilts for twin baby girls in Quilting: Completed Projects by perky on: July 28, 2008 04:30:43 PM
the boy's sister had twins and when there are babies, there must be quilts! i loved the quilt in this post, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=231810.0, so i stole the pattern. i hope that's ok!

i made this one first with amy butler's midwestern modern. i want to keep it!

i made the second one with the same pattern but i didnt want them to be too matchy-matchy, so i used some different fabric from my stash.

so i'm flying 2000 miles to visit the boy tomorrow. i'm kinda nervous about meeting his parents so i brought a GIFT! i threw this together in a couple hours today. it's the first time i've done pleats and i made it without a pattern. i hope his mommy likes it!

9  amy butler obsession quilts in Quilting: Completed Projects by perky on: January 28, 2008 12:47:27 PM
when i was home for winter break i decided to make a quilt for my dorm bed. i used amy butler charm packs that i got on ebay and i used the extra to make a crib-sized throw. i'm pretty sure the big quilt has every fabric from her lotus line!
