1  Best way to feature a fabric? in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by TAHINAZ on: September 08, 2012 05:37:14 PM
Recently I picked up a few yards of some very pretty fabric (cotton) that I know my mother-in-law would love. It has medium-sized pictures of Peanuts characters (her favorite.) For Christmas, I would like to make her a small quilt or blanket with that fabric featured prominently. However, I'm not an expert at quilting--most of my projects so far have used basic techniques like 9-patch and strip quilting.

What do you think is the best way to make something nice that features this pattern prominently, using no more than intermediate techniques? (It would be a real plus if I could work this project up in less than a month or so, as I have other gifts to make before Christmas, too.)

What do you think? Any help would be much appreciated.

2  Curtains of memories in Quilting: Completed Projects by TAHINAZ on: February 06, 2010 06:12:52 PM
I just finished these curtains for my kitchen. They're made out of bits of old clothes and fabric leftover from completed projects. (Note that some of the squares have the same pattern as the apron in the right-hand foreground.) I know they're kind of hooky, but I like them. They're full of memories and when the sun shines through them, they look like stained glass. Grin Now on to the rest of my curtains!
