41  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Some encouragement for wannabe quilters on: November 04, 2008 11:32:06 AM
anniefee, your quilt is wonderful, and it was a great idea to send for the baby shower.  I like the idea of adding the heart to turn the flaw into a feature too.  I still haven't quilted the top I made (I missed the follow up class to the beginning class I took).  Thanks for the encouragement to try finishing it on my own!

Very nice work.  It's beautiful!

I have what I'm sending honeyfresh in the car, ready to go to the post office.  I inteded to go last night, but my daughter's dance practice ran late, so the P.O. had closed by the time we got there.   Roll Eyes

Here is a teaser for honeyfresh.

Powdered sugar is aka "confectioner's sugar."  Does that help?  (I hope - if you're like me and don't have a food processor.)

I wanted to finish the bag for honeyfresh this morning before work, but one of our smoke detectors started an ear-piercing shriek, so... no time to sew after going out to the garage to get the ladder, replacing the battery and putting the ladder away.  Maybe tonight if my daugther's choir concert doesn't go too late.  I hope to post by Wednesday at the latest.

I'm sure it will be fine... if you don't care for what I send, feel free to pass it on!  Despite what they say on the TV show Seinfeld, I firmly believe in regifting!  These bags aren't reusable for nothing, right?  Smiley

Thank you, everybody.  I'm glad other people like the stripes.  Smiley 

klum78, here's a detailed pic so you can see that a floater is where the seams don't match up.

honeyfresh, I'm sorry I haven't communicated with you too much in the last couple of weeks (OMG, I just looked at the calendar and realized how long I'm taking with this project)!  I hope to finish your bag tonight while my DH is at choir practice and not interrupting my sewing!  I hope you like the patterns and colors of the fabrics I picked out for you too! 

This morning I had to wind a bobbin, of course in the middle of a seam Smiley, but at least I got as far as putting on the handles before I had to leave for work.

My daughter helped me pick out these fabrics - the first one she picked was the border. 



I'm not crazy about the green sashing, but I love the stripes, even though I wanted them to be vertical and they came out horizontal.  (I know - I could rotate the whole quilt 90 degrees, but I like the bigger blocks best this way.) 

I was pretty happy that it was my first quilt and there's only one really visible "floater."  The yellow in the striped fabric looks like a stalk of wheat, so I think I'll try a stitch to mimic that when I quilt it.
