1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Tokyo Quilt festival on: January 30, 2008 01:22:41 PM
I was looking at the Craftzine.com blog http://blog.craftzine.com/ and they posted a link to these pictures someone took at the festival.

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Quilted ball ornament on: November 08, 2007 12:33:34 PM

I just made this yesterday and finished it up today. I really love it and it looks so professional. My daughter saw it yesterday and said she almost thought it was store bought except it still had the messy edges. Here it is finished:

That's the prettier side.

I tried to center a fussy cut piece into it but I think the print was too large or I should have spread the points out further.

For the band I sewed one of the fabrics into a tube and glued it on instead of a ribbon.

The only this this pattern does not tell you is that I estimated it took about 160 flat head pins just to do one ball. By the time I put on the third row of pins I needed to use a thimble because my finger hurt from pushing them in. One 2.5 inch X 44 inch wide strip each of 3 colors is all the fabric you need to do both sides. They also get surprisingly heavy. I'm going to make as many more as I can  Grin
3  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Hello from Texas! on: November 04, 2007 02:15:00 PM
Hello!
I've actually been on Craftster for awhile. I'd like to post pictures eventually so I thought I'd start with an introduction post.

I sew and quilt along with various other crafts that I do with my kids. I also have a large home I've been living in for 5 years and would like to decorate. Craftster has inspired me to sew more and the decorating posts have given me the courage to start planning what to do with my home. I really have to say that seeing everyone's great talent and courage to make something, even if they don't know how, has really given me the jump start I've needed. You can check out my blog here at LJhttp://mariposaluna.livejournal.com/. And here's a link to my photo album there http://pics.livejournal.com/mariposaluna/

Thanks for reading! I'll see y'all around the forums  Smiley
