1  2005 Quilt Square Swap Finished quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by zenochka on: January 07, 2014 06:07:00 AM
Ok, so back in the fall of 2005 I was in a quilt square swap here on Craftster. I packed all the squares away in an envelope which got stuck at the bottom of one of my fabric bins and forgotten. Fast forward to last week and I finally unloaded all of my fabric and organized it on shelves and found the envelope with all the squares in it. I decided to sew it up and finish it yesterday! So here it is! The finished quilt from a swap 7-1/2 years ago!! Its a cute little throw, measures 40" by 50" and will probably wind up on my wall in my sewing area

2  2 t-shirt quilts in Quilting: Completed Projects by zenochka on: April 04, 2013 02:15:40 PM
A woman I know asked me to make her niece and nephew each a small tshirt quilt. Their father died suddenly a few months ago and she wanted them to have something to be able to snuggle up with and also remember him by. They picked out the fabrics and layouts and placement of the shirts. They actually cried when she gave the quilts to them at Easter

3  Baby "Sprinkle" quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by zenochka on: April 04, 2013 02:07:33 PM
I made this for my friend's Baby "Sprinkle". She wasn't due until May 6th and her daughter decided to come 2 days after the sprinkle, 6 weeks early!! Thankfully her baby is doing well but can't go home from the Nicu for a few more weeks. I managed to completely make this in 1 day from start to finish. I wasn't planning on making her a quilt but was at the fabric store and found fabric that matched the crib set she had bought and whipped it up and finished it 2 hours before the sprinkle lol. She absolutely loved it and promised to take a picture of the new baby in her quilt once she is home

4  Log Cabin Quilt king size in Quilting: Completed Projects by zenochka on: December 26, 2012 09:04:49 AM
A friend of my boyfriends asked me to make a quilt for him and his fiance. The requirements: it had to be green and brown and king size. I could choose the pattern. Since they live out in the country I chose a log cabin pattern and then put the squares together to make a star burst pattern. This was my first king size quilt and quite possibly my last! I had to put two 6 ft folding tables up side by side to quilt it.  It measures 110 inches by 110 inches. I had to get my brother and 14 yr old son to stand on the couch to hold it up to get a full picture of it. I am really happy with how it turned out.

5  Photo and Stars Quilted Wall Hanging in Quilting: Completed Projects by zenochka on: December 19, 2012 09:49:09 AM
I made this for an online friend. She sent me all the fabric and pictures and chose the pattern and I just sewed it all together. Turned out measuring 35x35 inches. The star she found online and loved it. After a lot of research I found it was a pattern that was in a magazine from 1990 and was able to find the magazine on ebay. After a lot of trial and error, making my own templates and sewing, cursing and seam ripping I love the way they turned out.

7  Re: Table skirt "how to"? in Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs by zenochka on: March 26, 2009 08:17:02 PM
I was able to get it done tonight, in about 5 hours of me working on and off on getting it done and being pestered by 3 kids lol. I found a pattern for a bedskirt and just altered it to fit the table.
I got 14 (yes 14!) yards of fabric. I used 2 yards for the top and 12 yards for the ruffled skirt.
The top I cut it to fit right on, so it measured 2 yds by 31 inches and I serged the ends. Then put it aside.
The 12 yards I cut to be 31 inches long and then serged and hemmed the bottom and side edges. I just left the top the way it was. Then I took 12 yards of a very thin ribbon and did a large zig zag stitch over the ribbon at the top unhemmed edge. I laid the top piece on the table and the pinned the skirt to the table, pulling the ribbon to ruffle it. I used a lot of pins. After it was pinned I sewed the skirt to the top. The way I sewed it was by laying the ruffled skirt on top of the serged end of the top of the fabric so when it lays on the table the ruffles stand up. Does that make sense? I overlapped the edge and have an opening in the back. There are still a few spots I have to fix but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out
Here is the site I used to go by: http://www.fabriclandwest.com/Home_Dec/bed_skirts.htm

And here is a picture of my skirt all done set up on the table in my living room


the back of the table where I have the opening



I like having it all in one piece so I don't have to worry about attaching a table skirt right to a table cover. I went with black b/c I figured it would make the colors pop out more and white would get too dirty

8  Tinkerbell Star Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by zenochka on: March 26, 2009 09:03:07 AM
I made this for my daughter's 3rd birthday, which is April 1st. I was so happy to have it done 3 weeks before her birthday lol! Usually I wind up finishing them weeks or months later (bad mommy..tsk..tsk..)

Each star is a different Tinkerbell fabric. There are 22 different Tinkerbell fabrics in the quilt. I have been collecting them since she was born! Her bedroom is all Tinkerbell. I quilted around each star, then did meandering all over and knotwork on the border.
