1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Kaffe Fassett's Tropical Frothy Quilt on: July 27, 2008 09:40:06 PM
Here's my version of the Tropical Frothy Quilt.  I adore the fabric for the back.  I didn't have enough, so I put in a strip of scraps from the front.  Inside I put wool batting.  I plan to hand-quilt the blue triangles on the border once winter comes (when it's cold outside and I can snuggle under the quilt as I'm quilting it!).

Yeah, too bad I don't knit! Not sure what I'll use it for. Thanks for the compliments!

Hey, just made this craft bucket in about 3 hours. It's for crafty supplies or knitting, etc. Kinda fun on a rainy afternoon.  Here's where I learned how:


I changed the pattern a bit.
1. I ironed interfacing onto the non-denim fabric for extra stability.
2. I put a circle of denim onto each section (the denim and the non-denim sections).  I simply opened the zipper of the jeans before sewing the circles onto the tubes.  Then I pulled it all through the zipper.
3. I didn't make a circle of cardboard for the bottom. The double denim circles hold it nicely.

This is pretty amazing:


Ezrainiel's comment about a shawl reminded me of this sampler. (I couldn't find the shawl on their website, though.)  I love the way it "flows."  Something on such a grand scale (if you have the patience) would be stunning.

I love it!  What pattern did you use?  I like all the pockets - it looks so professional!

Those are really cool!  Is that cork on the bottom of the first one?  That's a great idea.  I've struggled with putting bottoms in some of my bags, and I haven't found a good way.  The cork is nice because you don't have to put it between the lining and the outer fabric.  It looks good on its own.  Did you tack it down somehow?

I know exactly what you mean about not carrying the bags you make.  I'm exactly the same!

I'm not really into Western gear, but for some reason, this piece of fabric spoke to me!  Yee Haw!

Thank you!  And, yes, that's a magnetic closure.
Happy Canada Day to all!

July 1 is Canada Day, so I decided to make a bag to carry around all day.  Here it is!  The front and pocket are dollar store flags, and the back is a bandana from the same dollar store.  Cost about $6 and I can use it for years!  (Only once a year!)  It is, of course, in Jordy style.

OoOoOoOoo where on EARTH did you get the spirograph fabric? I neeeeed it! Cheesy

It IS great, isn't it!?  I got it at Fabricana in Vancouver, Canada.  It's a quilting fabric, so you might check quilting stores/sections of fabric stores.
