11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Ugly baby quilt in pink and orange on: February 11, 2014 11:57:21 AM
I don't think it's horrible at all!  Not knowing what was in your mind's eye, I like that it's bold and graphic.  The quilting looks fine, too.  Are you disappointed with the pattern you chose to quilt it or your ability?  If it's the latter, cut yourself some slack!  It's your first time, and I would have to hate you if it was perfect.  Grin

I agree with donniesgirl.  Beginning quilters usually start with a four or nine patch.  The nine patches are already in this quilt, and the alternate blocks can be made from strip sets.  All the seams are straight and there aren't any bias edges, so go for it!

I recognized this pattern right away, because I've always loved it.  The problem is I never wanted to mess around with actually making it in glass.  Roll Eyes  Thank you for posting this; I'm going to look at all my glass patterns with an applique eye now.

Sorry you are having a rough go of it lately, but this is just beautiful!  Here's hoping things settle down for a bit...
15  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Advice for border colors? on: August 29, 2013 03:11:22 PM
That is so cute!  Does she know about it or is it a surprise?

I'm probably too late, but I'll still throw in my two cents.  Wink  The center is so graphic that I think a pieced border will compete too much with it.  I would stick with either solids or something that reads solid (tie/hand dye, tone on tone print, etc).  I would do two or three strips, and if you want to add another color royal blue or red would be nice.  I'd only do a 1" or 1.5" strip so that it's just an accent, but some people don't like strong accents like that.  If you have a couple of solid borders you can do the binding in a print or stripe, and since it's not right next to the center squares they won't fight.

Looking forward to seeing whatever you choose!

Beautiful work!  I'll bet the lucky couple was beyond thrilled.

Score!  I don't know why, but everyone else's scraps seem to be more interesting than my own.  Cheesy

Nice!  So glad this one didn't put a hex on your place while it was being made.  Grin

Can you share the source of the patterns?  Are they online?
20  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Flannel quilt block ideas? on: June 07, 2013 08:41:22 AM
Sorry, but I'm not much help, either.  I've only made one and it was a mess.  I pinned as much as usual, but the quilting really distorted the whole thing.  I also had problems with pulling at the seams (only used 1/4", though), so I had to quilt a large zig zag over the seams.  Luckily it was only a disappearing nine patch, so it didn't ruin the design.  It seems like a lot of quilters are just fine with flannel, so I'm thinking it's just me.  I've just not been tempted to try it again.  Undecided
