21  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Daughter's of Triton Little Mermaid Quilt on: July 27, 2008 07:18:32 AM
Hello everyone!

I just finished up this quilt yesterday, and I have to say, I think it is my absolute favorite!  It started off innocently enough, I wanted to practice embroidery, so I thought it would be fun to make Ariel's woefully underappreciated sisters.  Then, once I had those, I thought I might as well make their names.  Then, I thought it would be a shame to just leave them in a box somewhere, so I might as well use them to practice drafting some irregular quilt blocks (not sure if there is a name for that or not).  So now I have this nifty baby blanket, yay!

I always thought Ariel's sisters should get more credit, I mean, they seem like pretty cool chicks, just maybe a little less adventuresome.  They would be just as hot as Ariel, if only they'd lose the ugly haircuts!  So here is my daughters of triton in a sea of green quilt (yeah for TLM and the Beatles all in one quilt!):

And here are some closeups in proper order with (imaginary) musical accompaniment:

Thanks for indulging me!  Let me know what  you think!

All through college my husband and I lived with another couple who we were very close to.  College ended and we all went our separate ways, but I wanted to give them a little something to remember us by.  I call these "replacement roommates" and I'm told they have a place of honor in their new appartment.  The girl is a mermaid because I'm kind of obsessed with them, and the boy is wearing my husband's usual uniform - an adidas shirt and adidas workout pants.  They were really fun to make!

23  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Present for a cute and snarky friend on: June 22, 2008 05:28:27 AM
Hi everyone!
A friend a work invited me to her bday party, so I whipped up this little cross stitched piece and set it into a zippered pouch.  I wish I could post a picture of her because I tried to make it look pretty accurate.  She always wears her hair like this and has on pink scrubs.  I think she liked it pretty well, although, as I'm sure most of you know, non-crafters never really "get it."  I really enjoyed working on it.  The bottom word is censored.

24  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Battlestar Galactica Embroidery on: June 13, 2008 09:34:19 PM
I just started watching Battlestar on DVD, it's frakking amazing!  I was really sad to see that I missed the Battlestar Galactica swap, so I decided to make something just for fun.  The pic is kind of messed up because my camera is broken so I had to just scan it in.  The top one is the colonies logo and the second is a cylon centurion.  I'm not sure what I'll do with them now that they're done.  I had thought to make a needle book with these as the front and back covers, but now I'm not sure.  Any suggestions?

edit: I cropped the scan, it was just too sloppy!
25  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Irish Themed Quilt on: June 11, 2008 08:39:39 AM
Hi Everyone,
This is my first posting of a project on craftster, I love this place!  This is a quilt I made for a good friend's wedding.  The bride has an Irish heritage and the wedding was somewhat celtic themed.  I got the pattern for this off of Quilter's Cache, the block is called, "Irish Plaid."  This is also my first time paper piecing.

Here's the finished top, I didn't get a pic of the whole thing finished, d'oh!

I like to embroider my label directly onto the quilt backing so that it can never be removed.

Fun with paper piecing!

Things don't always go according to plan, *sigh*

Thanks for looking!  This is probably my favorite quilt that I have made so far.
