1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Flying Geese with Chevron Quilting on: April 15, 2012 07:04:49 PM
Here is my next quilt, it's quite small (1mx1m)
I used this tutorial to make the Flying Geese:
http://www.quilterscache.com/H/Howtomakegeese.html

the Geese were quite quick to make once I did all the maths to get the size I wanted.
I find it hard to think in Imperial measurements given the Metric system here in Oz.


The quilt - it's a royal purple colour in real life.


White on white print for the background, white stitch in the ditch thread with Purple 1/4" quilting chevrons around the Flying Geese



Chevrons taken out to the edge of the quilt. 3" x 6"


The different material



The finished quilt.

Questions, C&C welcome.

thanks

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Mexican Themed Quilt (made by an Australian for Canadian Friends) on: February 06, 2012 04:35:46 PM
This is my second quilt and my first time using the Braided method.
I purchased the Moda Jelly Roll and found this complementary design:

However being true to my Dive Right In and NEVER unpick method of teaching myself how to quilt,
I realised about 30mins into the sewing that I didn't have the right amount of colours and then went off on a tangent to create this:


It has turned out to be a double lap rug (2m by 1.50m or 80 x 60).
It's a gift for wonderful friends (who live in Canada) celebrating their Silver Anniversary. I live in Australia and the colours were chosen to reflect Mexico where my friends holiday each year.
C&C welcome




The photo's are from my phone. I'll update them later with better one.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Asymmetrical Snap Scarf #2 on: January 16, 2012 05:28:29 PM
After being totally inspired by Chimes a fellow Craftster
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=104683

Who generously put together this excellent tutorial
http://chimesdesign.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/chimesdesignSnapScarf.pdf

I made this Asymmetrical Snap Scarf and so far have gotten 3 compliments on it despite the fact:
1. I'm in Australia
2. It's Summer
3. My office is so C-O-L-D nobody thinks it's strange that I'm wearing it.

(This is my first post on Craftster so I'm not allowed photos yet  Smiley)
The internal fabric moved around a bit and seemed a bit loose, (most likely this is because I didn't pin it )
but once I put the 1/4" seam on the outside of the scarf this seem go away.

Using the hammer to put in the Snaps is fun but you really need to give them a solid whack otherwise they rattle.

Let me know your comments.
