I know this is seriously late, but I finally made the shirt!

Thanks, carmenmarie for the link and inspiration!

And of course, this was made with some of the AWESOME fabric alwaysinmyroom sent me from the 50 projects in 2012 craftalong. I finally used it!!

Grandparents Day is a "holiday" likely invented by Hallmark or perhaps my in-laws. Seems typical that it's an American thing. (I'm only feeling slightly cynical this morning  Wink)

And now to business...

*OWL Proposal*
OWL Subject & Option: Transfiguration, Option 1
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Teesha Moore Patch Sewing Machine Cover
Brief Description: I will be doing some major stash busting for this project. My large supply of both fabric and embroidery floss will be transfigured into a multi-textured sewing machine cover.

*NEWT Proposal*
NEWT Subject: Arithmancy
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Quilting by Numbers
Brief Description: Using leftovers from my Vanishing t-shirt quilt, I'll be making a twin-sized quilt for my son. I have several 4" x 4" squares that I will be making fit into a 63" x 88" 9-patch quilt:

My calculations based on directions from this blog:
Take away 1/2" (for seam allowances) for a finished square of 3.5"
63" (width of quilt) divided by 3.5" (finished square) = 18
88" (length of quilt) divided by 3.5" (finished square)= 25

So 18 x 25 = 450 squares. Layout will be 18 blocks wide by 25 blocks long.

I *think* I have enough squares for that!  Cheesy Guess we'll find out!

**All calculations subject to re-evaluation**

Class: Flying
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Feather Necklace
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: My husband blacksmithed this feather charm for me a while ago, and I've been holding onto it waiting for the perfect chain to put it on. Finally I decided to make this strand with some random beads and a feather charm. I think it has an overall bohemian feel.

Because bunny1kenobi is so awesome, she sent me a little something extra.

A reversible necklace:

Isn't it awesome? I couldn't get a good pic of the red side, but it says "I'm pure at heart, it repels the dirt."

Thank you so much, bunny!

Here are the awesome goodies I received from lmseeley! She did an amazing job with everything.

Here's a mini group shot of the three smaller items:

A banana coin purse (lmseeley didn't like this, but I love it!), a Tobias painting, and a little quote note book.

She also sent two AMAZING bags complete with great show quotes:

Close up of the stitching:

And bag #2 with my absolute favorite quote:

lmseeley received from me as well, but hasn't had a chance to upload pics yet.  Here are a couple shots of what I sent her (if you have better pics, lmseeley, please post!!  Cheesy).

Cross stitch hoop:

Tobias doll and "blue myself" mug:

The mug also has a blue handprint on it and I sent a banana bookmark, but I didn't get a pic of that.

Thanks for a great swap!  Grin

49  A Long, Strange Trip: Tie-Dye T-shirt Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Abbeeroad on: August 05, 2013 07:31:20 AM
This quilt has been a work-in-progress for me for at least two years, with an additional two years of persuading my husband to let me cut up his old t-shirts. When I first met my husband, he lived in tie-dye, most of which featured some sort of Grateful Dead logo. Gradually, however, the tie-dye went by the wayside (along with his long hair and Birkenstocks Sad). My husband is a sentimental guy, though, and he kept every single solitary t-shirt in the attic for years. I was sentimental about these shirts, too, since they reminded me of our college years and when we first met. As sewing became more and more of a hobby for me, I got the idea in my head to make a quilt out of all those old t-shirts rotting away in the attic. Hubby was wary, however, and it took a long time for me to convince him the quilt was a good idea. When he finally consented (and I realized that I had to actually follow through with this endeavor) I knew that it would take me a while, but I never expected it to take this long! A few life set-backs and some design evolution delayed this project a bit, but I finally got the kick to finish it from the Harry Potter Craftalong here on Craftster and the fact that both my husband and I turned 30 this year (though the actual birthday deadline did pass me by).

And here it is, my first trip into full-size quilting completed!!

You can see the square alignment is off in the first few rows...I got slightly better at that as I went on.

Here's a shot of the back:

And some fun angle shots just because:

I interfaced all the t-shirt squares and used a black sheet for the boarders. The backing is a tie-dyed cotton sheet and the binding is store-purchased extra wide bias tape (9 yards). All machine sewn and quilted.

Critiques and comments welcome! Thanks for looking!  Grin

I took this picture at least a week ago, but sadly have no progress to report since. Here's my WIP machine cover so far...

Lots of nerdy representation! I have enough squares to finish this one side, but I want to spread out the nerdy themes a bit, so I think I'm going to start the other side next.
