1  Re: 15 Quilt Projects in 2015 in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by Amazon_warrior on: March 16, 2015 01:28:12 PM
Thank you both!  Smiley  It feels great to get some of these off my plate.  (So that I can add more...!  Grin)

Speaking of more, this is something I started recently that I'm quite proud of:


It's a computer-generated pattern, there's more details on my blog under Play Craft's Equal.  The different-sized triangles look like a nightmare, but actually went together surprisingly well once I'd done a wee bit of maths to calculate yardages and quilt size.  I've got some wadding for it (I'm going to try wool) and some really cute fabric to back it, but then I got submerged by other things with higher priorities.  The plan is to use it for FMQ feather practice.

I'm also vaguely joining in with the Pantone Colour of the Year Challenge, though I don't even have a completed top yet!  I just spent the evening over-dyeing my "marsala" fabric with brown dye because I decided it was too burgundy.  It's in the wash now and I'm anxiously awaiting the final result.  Smiley

2  Two (Three!)-Zip Hipster in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Amazon_warrior on: March 16, 2015 09:30:16 AM
It's my sister's birthday tomorrow.  I made her a bag.


It's a slightly modified version of the Two-Zip Hipster from Dog Under My Desk.  The pattern went together pretty well, despite the fact that I used Ikea furnishing fabric for the outer and the weird selection of interfacings I could find locally rather than all quilting-weight cottons and Pellon, which I don't think exists here.  I did have fun fussy-cutting the outer fabric for the inner and outer pockets.  Smiley

I also made and added a little clip to hold keys:


And an extra zipped pocket on the other side of the lining:


It went a bit wrinkly at the corners, but seems to be ok now the bag's all finished.  Bags can never have too many pockets, to my mind.


I also decided to use webbing for the strap rather than making one from the fabric:


All in all, I'm pretty pleased with it!

3  Japan Fan Club door curtain in Quilting: Completed Projects by Amazon_warrior on: March 14, 2015 02:23:04 PM
This one's been brewing for over a year, but I was determined to finish it for Mother's Day tomorrow and finally IT. IS. DONE!  Including metallic FMQ, no less!  A good portion of the delay was me trying to get up the courage to start the FMQ, but once I started it all went in a (comparatively) big rush.  Smiley







The backing is from mum's own fabric stash; she doesn't really do much sewing at the moment but seems happy for me to rummage and repurpose.  Smiley

4  Baby Colourful Chevrons in Quilting: Completed Projects by Amazon_warrior on: March 14, 2015 02:11:25 PM
This is a quilt for my cousin's little girl.  It sat on my sewing table as a pile of untrimmed HSTs for ages until I finally got annoyed with it (and myself!); after that, it got finished in a matter of days.

5  Baby Coin Stack quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Amazon_warrior on: March 14, 2015 02:08:25 PM
I finally finished this baby quilt for my cousin's little boy.  I had trouble with the quilting and it took me a while to get around to unpicking loopy bits and tidying up and finishing the FMQ.  And then I had to spend ages brushing off all the batting fuzz that spread itself ALL over the black bits.  And the less said about hand-finished black binding sewn with black thread, the better!

6  Reversible table runner in Quilting: Completed Projects by Amazon_warrior on: March 14, 2015 02:03:26 PM
This is the table runner I made for my aunt and uncle.  It was meant to be a Christmas present, but was clearly going to be late so I decided to make the back a bit more summery so they can use it more than once a year.  It ended up being more of an anniversary present.  Smiley

9  Tea cosy in Quilting: Completed Projects by Amazon_warrior on: December 26, 2014 04:50:45 AM
Made this teacosy to go with these for my mum for Christmas.  The elastic needs to be re-done, though - I think I didn't do it right and it wasn't the most amazing elastic, just the first stuff I found that was both wide and long enough...





The design is very loosely based on a tutorial I skim-read and then forgot half of!
