Research Project Name: Quilt as you go wedding quilt
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points: Community, Epic
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=447984.0
Brief Description: I made this for my son and his wife for their wedding in March (I'm really slow...!)  It's really loud, but they seem to like it!  Hooray!  I started this in February. I haven't counted the hours, but I'm pretty sure that 45 would be on the LOW side for this.  It took me about 4 hours just to bind it.  Roll Eyes

3  Epic Queen sized wedding quilt!! in Quilting: Completed Projects by bunny1kenobi on: May 29, 2016 11:52:41 AM
I made this quilt as you go quilt for my son and his bride.  The wedding was in March, so I'm REALLY slow, but I'm just glad I got it finished before Christmas, before they started having kids, before the sun burned out.... LOL!






From these humble beginnings...

The first 2 blocks (I was so proud!)


To a basketful of 90 of them!

I received a card from rockingbearranch for my Cabinet of Curiosities theme.  She sent me some actual curiosities!!



It came in a fabulous little tin, and the loose feather is from her youngest chicken, Chippy. 

Thank you, RBR! Very cool card!

My son is a huge Dan TDM fan.  He really wanted a shirt, but they are more expensive than the budget can handle at the moment.  So I made him one.  He is over the moon.

Project Name: Dan TDM shirt
Project Link: na
Brief Description: My littlest is a HUGE Dan TDM fan (TDM stands for The Diamond Minecart), who is a popular youtuber.  He wanted a Dan TDM shirt and my budget can't support a $35 t-shirt at the moment, so I made him one.  It will be worn often. In fact, I will probably have to wrestle him to the floor to get it off of him to be laundered.

9  Big and Little swap - alleviate summer boredom! in New Swap Theme Ideas by bunny1kenobi on: May 11, 2016 03:01:30 PM

I'm thinking of starting this swap in June or July.  Initially, I was thinking parent and child, but I know there are a lot of craftsters in our community who aren't parents, but have kids in their lives who they'd love to craft with.

Here's the idea:  Partner up with a kid you love, to create an item for each of your partners (another adult + kid team).  The items must be made by the adult and kid team and one item must be made for each adult participant, and for each kid participant.

Some examples of projects:  wooden plaques or other wood projects (kids can sand and maybe paint or stain, adults can do the more detailed work), stenciled items (t-shirts, aprons etc - adults can cut stencils, kids can paint), art work (kids start the process, adults add or fill in the blanks)... kids can wield glue, needle and thread, all kinds of things.  Don't sell your kids short, give them a challenge and let them rise to the occasion!

I'd love to see kids learn some new things that can build some self esteem, and teams creating projects for others of the quality that they'd like to receive themselves.  And it would be a great way to kill summer boredom.

THIS WILL REQUIRE some devoted time and care on behalf of the adult portion of the team.  I would set aside a generous crafting time because working with kids sometimes means working more slowly, and allowing time for trial and error.  I would request that if you aren't prepared to do what's necessary to teach your child partner something new and if you don't have the patience or time to follow through, pass on this one.  Also, if you don't think you can send on time, give this one a pass.  It's bad enough to disappoint an adult in a swap, but I don't want to have to call for angels for heartbroken kids.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.  Also, if you think of examples of great cooperative projects, please share!  You may spark inspiration in others!  Grin
