1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Denim Sampler Quilt on: April 30, 2012 05:09:17 AM
Thanks for your comments.

I used basic sheeting material in cream for the back because it is wide and I didnt have to stitch it together to cover the whole back. 

It is fairly heavy and when I was stitching on the border and binding I had to keep rearranging it so the weight didnt pull my machine onto the floor!

I liked using the denim though because it didnt matter if the triangles in the squares were perfect because with denim you can get away with a lot.

I was surprised how much variation of colour you get with different shades of jeans.  I was worried when I started that the colours would blend into each other.

My brother had loads of jeans that he never wore anymore so I decided to make him a denim sampler quilt.

The quilt covers his double bed with a bit of overhang on each side and the end.

I apologise for the creased quilt, I gave the quilt to my brother about a month ago and forgot to take pictures of it beforehand.  To take these pictures today I had to retrieve it from a crumpled ball on the floor  Undecided (he promises he likes it ... but actions speak louder than words)

This is a blanket I made for my brothers girlfriend.  It has 54 different crochet squares in pink, lilac, yellow and green.

This was my first attempt at crocheting something that wasn't a granny square.  It is for a friend's daughter using the same pattern as my mum used to make me a dress when I was little.

I dont want to make another bobble ever again!

Hi, I havent joined in on any of these before, despite having made two crochet square blankets already.  This is the one I am working on at the moment for my brothers girlfriend.

I am also working on a pastel coloured blanket for my mum but haven't done as much on that one yet.

Each blanket will have 70 squares.
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Flower Fairy Quilt on: September 02, 2011 05:29:31 AM
My mum absolutely loves flower fairies so I decided to make her a quilt of them.  I actually completed this in time for her birthday in February 2010 but only just remembered that I should post it!

This was my first quilt I made and it was done by hand (all the stitching and quilting) as I didnt have a sewing machine at the time. 

The fabric is by Michael Miller.

Here are some close up shots

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Granny Square Afghans on: September 02, 2011 05:23:57 AM
I made an afghan earlier this year using 70 (10 rows of 7 squares) different squares in pink, grey and white.

My brother then decided he wanted one, so I made one in blue, brown, cream and navy

Then his girlfriend decided that she wanted one, so I have only just started on this with pink, yellow, lilac and mint.

I am also working on a afghan for my mum in white, pink, yellow and mint, but I have only made 1 square so far!

All the squares are 6" and made with DK wool and a 5mm hook.

Thanks for looking
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Ribbon border pattern on: October 16, 2010 04:30:11 PM

Does anyone have a link to a ribbon border pattern for cross stitch?

This link has the ribbon idea: http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/2u1mfCpkeR4xr3azrvSkMw or if anyone knows what book this pattern is from that will be great.

I have tried to set out the pattern myself but it isn't working!

Thanks for your answers. 

I actually found a chenille throw in a charity shop and used that to bind it.  OMG does it fray easily, however I finished it yesterday and only had to patch it a couple of times (on the join and one of the corners) but it is for me so i dont mind.

I decided not to make a rag quilt because in preparing people have said it messes up the washing machine and I dont have a tumble dryer.  I also dont have a launderette anywhere near me!
