Amazon_warrior, that's fantastic! I've made a bargello (and only one!) so I know how much work they take.

brandyk, your donation quilts are adorable.

Here's my latest: a Shakespearian-themed baby quilt

All the world's a stage

Two friends of mine are expecting their first child. Since they're huge theatre and Shakespeare fans (they actually met when they were cast as Romeo and Juliet in their local community theatre production!) I went with a Shakespearian theme for the baby quilt I made.

Okay, so I posted photos for kbrison's last paper pieced square and the other 5 circle of geese for sloth. Off to the post office to mail everything!

Okay, so I finished kbrison's third paper pieced block (no pic yet, it's coming). Now all I have left are 5 circle of geese for sloth. I'm hoping I can get those all done Friday since I'm home all day. If not, after that I'm away until March 15 so would be finishing on March 16 and sending on March 17.

All right, I've started paper piecing. I think I understand it better now, but I still don't like it.  Tongue

Two blocks for kbrison are up (there would have been a third but I screwed it up and need to print another template) plus a fruit-themed circle of geese for sloth.

It's all good, I made myself a template. I just found an image of a 30-degree ruler online, sized the image until it was accurate, then traced it. Worked great. All three Dresden plates are done and will be posted in the gallery momentarily.

Now...the moment I've been trying to put off. All I have left to do are the paper-pieced blocks. Eeep.

Okay, I need help. I'm trying to cut the pieces for the Dresden plate, but I don't have a 30-degree ruler. I'm trying to use the markings on my cutting mat, but I keep ending up with weird angle that are definitely not 30 degrees. I don't know why this isn't working - I've used the markings before for 60 and 45 degree cuts and it's been fine, but I can't get the 30-degree ones to work. Help!

amnesia's +x blocks are up. On to the Dresden plates!

Got my first two finishes of the year - baby quilts for two friends.

Two quick baby quilts

A couple of my friends who live overseas (Australia and Germany) had babies in the fall/early winter. I had too many quilts to make for Christmas to get quilts done for them at the time, but I finally got around to them now. I just kept them very simple.

Just ignore my feet in the pictures below.  Cheesy


Quilt 1: Shadow Box

This is a technique I'd been meaning to try for a while, so I took this opportunity. It was super easy and I like the effect.






Quilt 2: Framed squares

I just stumbled across this one online and decided to try it. The original pattern had nine-patches in the middle, but I just went for solid squares.





(the Canada-themed background is a bit of a joke, as we used to refer to each other by our countries of origin)
