1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / tropical print quilt on: March 17, 2004 07:13:15 AM
I just finished my very first quilt!  It's 48"x48" or so, intended as a baby or lap quilt. (More photos here.)

The entire quilt top (except for thread) is "post-consumer recycled content" -- fabrics scavenged from a friend's charity bag!  I used a piece of flannel sheet for the batting, since I didn't want it to be thick.  The backing is new fabric because I couldn't scrounge something that worked.  It's machine-pieced and machine-quilted, and from now on I will be doing hand-quilting -- it takes longer, but the machine was such a pain and it's MUCH harder to control how it comes out.

I'm already at work on the next similar-size quilt -- made out of recycled flannel shirts!

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / what to do with yearbooks? on: February 11, 2004 01:43:26 PM
I have several yearbooks -- from middle school and high school -- that I am really, really SICK of lugging around from apartment to apartment.  But I don't quite want to give them all up -- I think if they went away I'd regret it when I'm 50 or whatever.  Does anyone have any good ideas for how to put them to some kind of good use?  I'm not attached to the bindings, etc., just parts of the insides -- photos, messages, all that.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / felted entrelac bag on: December 30, 2003 07:35:40 AM
Just before Christmas I finished the Lori Sweazy Felted Entrelac Bag, the recipient was extremely happy:

It's in Noro Kureyon 128, and I got the pattern from the Three Kittens Yarn Shoppe in Minnesota.  If you've not yet tried entrelac, mamma mia, you definitely should -- it's deliciously modular and satisfying!
