1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Ticker Tape quilt art (wall hanging thingy) on: March 04, 2013 01:41:26 PM
Love the creativity!  Question for you... is the tape measure 'scraps' from fabric tape measures?  If so, where did you get?  I'm looking for these in fabric but all I'm finding is the plastic variety which aren't easy to poke a hole through with my needle.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

 Thank you! In answer to your question, that is just cotton fabric that I bought from an eBay shop based in Thailand called Lucky Fabrics, have a look, they have more tape measure fabrics in different colours. There is also an UK site called Online Fabrics that also sells the same type. I went with the Thai shop because it was cheaper shipping it to Ireland. Ironic that the country next to me charges more for shipping! Cheesy
 I hope this helps!

I hope I have this in the right category!

 My fianc and I bought our first house recently, and I've been having a great time trying to make it really feel like home. There's not much art stuff on the wall apart from some boring flower art, which neither of us liked very much. So I took the frame and made a mini ticker tape quilt (complete with batting) using scraps from recent projects. Now it's something I actually want to look at Cheesy



 I will definitely be making more of these, it was extremely enjoyable Smiley
Sorry about the quality of the photo, it's super dark today!

I've been wanting to take up quilting and these are a great inspiration to make me do it! They are beautiful!
Any good resources you can suggest for me to get started?

 I have a ton of resources that can help you, I'll send you a PM with a list of links Smiley

Oh wow, these are great! Love the first one, the black sashing makes everything pop! The Irish Chain is beautiful too! And now I want to make a ZigZag quilt! Did that one take a ton of planning to make?

 Thank you! I prefer using black sashing to white, but that's because I'm a naturally messy person and black is easier to clean Cheesy
 the Zig Zag one was actually pretty frustrating to make at times because the seams didn't want to line up properly, so I had to do lots of basting and checking, and then redoing it. But I was using old scraps so it could be different for you. It did take a bit of planning, but you're working with half square triangles so it's not immensely difficult. My advice is to line everything up the way you want before you start sewing, take some photos and keep referring to the pictures, it'll make life a lot easier Smiley

I've been making a lot of quilts lately, but as I don't have very much space, I've been leaving a good few of them unfinished until I move house (and get my very own craft room, woo!) so please excuse the unfinished ones, I just wanted to show you Smiley

 Half Moon Modern charm pack by Moda:

 
 Irish chain quilt (one of the easiest quilts I've ever made!)


Chevron baby quilt (basically just using up scraps for this one)


String block quilt (paper pieced, so much ironing involved!)


My future mother in law loves the above string block quilt, so I decided to make her bag in the same style:


Spots & Stripes baby quilt (handquilted):


Hexagon quilt (made entirely from scraps, all completely sewn by hand, 667 hexagons!)


 Sorry about the overload of photos, I didn't actually realise how many freakin' quilts I've made recently!

10  U.K. AND IRELAND / IRELAND / Any Portlaoise/Laois craftsters? on: June 18, 2012 02:24:44 AM
I'm moving to Portlaoise next month and once I get settled in, I'd like to meet other craftstery people around the area. I've never lived outside Dublin before and won't really know anyone, so I'll be kinda lonely at first. I think there's some knitting groups in Portlaoise, but haven't found any sewing/embroidery groups. (In fairness, there doesn't seem to be any sewing groups in Dublin either!)
 I might start a sewing/embroidery circle if others are interested!
