1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Basting Spray - great tool!! on: November 06, 2005 05:04:04 AM
This is the best quilting tool I found! 

I've used it now on 2 quilts and can't imagine quilting without it.  What I did was tape the backing to my floor (I have tiled floors so this was a big help!).  I followed the instructions on the can and sprayed.  I then laid the batting down and was able to get out all of the lumps and folds.  I flipped it over to make sure it was absolutely smoothe.  Then I taped it back down again batting side up, sprayed the batting and laid my quilt top down.  Smoothed out and then pinned.  What a difference then just straight pinning. 

There is no gumming of your needle and the spray washes right out.  And it also mops up off your floor!  I recommend if you have another surface other than tile, put newspaper or craft paper down. There is a lot of overspray.  Smiley

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Added more photos on: November 02, 2005 05:19:15 PM
Hey all!  I've finished 2 more quilts.  One is brightly colored pinwheels - this one is being raffled off to raise money for the Humane Society and the animal victims of Hurricane Katrina.  The other one is houses - I made this for a couple that's adopting a daughter from Russia.  I thought the houses were kind of a neat idea, representing the fact that we all are different but together we make a family.

I also made a bunch of juice box purses for hubby's second cousins.  We were at a family reunion over the summer and I had all the kids save the empty pouches so that they could get a surprise in the mail.  They loved them.  I received money with orders for several more from some of their friends.  Smiley

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Wedding gown corset on: May 01, 2005 07:44:28 PM
I bought a wedding gown on Ebay for $30 because I wanted to use the skirt portion to make a quilt.  Once I cut off the bodice, I got to thinking that this would make a cool corset.  I took off the big puffy eighties looking sleeves and trimmed the armholes with the satin I removed.  I then trimmed away the skirt to reveal a   V bodice.  I cut the zipper and evened it out in the back.

Now I have a sleeveless beaded corset! Pics are in the link below.  I wish I took a picture of the dress before I altered it.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Skull caps - need pattern on: May 01, 2005 06:44:24 PM
Does anyone know how to make these?  I just bought a bike and want to make some in more feminine patterns instead of the skulls and flames you see in the stores.

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

I attempted this yesterday and it didn't work.  So I've created a link for my photos.  Hope to start posting more.

I added lining, a padded strap and beaded fringe to the edge.  What do you think?
