1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Need baby clothes quilt opinion - Picture of layout included on: January 23, 2009 06:03:14 PM
Ok so here's my thrown together layout of the quilt I'm making out of my son's baby clothes. (Sorry for the tilted picture...the layout is 4' by 6' and that's the most straight on I could get).

Anyway, you can see the stripes of just blue and just green going diaganal, and I'm wondeirng if I should add in bright yellow and red squares so one diaganal stripe is blue-red-blue-red, and the other is yellow-green-yellow-green?  It would make for more bright colors. 

On the other hand, I could just make this quilt as a mostly blue/green quilt.  Does that look too washed out?

A third option would be to do a 1 inch border in red, and then the 3" fuzzy blue border I was going to do, and then a satin binding in green.

Any opinions?  What would you do?


 
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / First two quilts - Red/white lap quilt, Green/Purple log cabin retro baby quilt on: July 27, 2006 07:19:47 PM
This was my first quilt.  It's a simple lap quilt made with 6" squares to match my living room.


This...much harder quilt was my second quilt.
I made it for my friend who kinda likes retro patters, so I thought all the geometric shapes would be fun.  I was going for a twilight zone look putting the "neverending squares" in the middle of the log cabin.
I just quilted in the ditch to keep it simple for me.







(ignore the little sewing mishap on this block...I'm going it fix it before I give it to her).

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: Danger on: July 16, 2006 08:13:40 PM
Depending on how old you are - it's a good thing that he cares.  I would say swapping should be reserved for 18+ for that reason (which has nothing to do with skill of younger people of course!)  There's just so many creeps out there that if I had a daughter who was a teenager...and especially if I was a dad I'd be worried too.

Try the "send to his work" solution.  That might be a good comprimise.

laraeby and snacker,

I crafted for one of those flakers,  I furfilled my end of the bargin.  I actually feel as though the flaker has stolen from me,  even though the people crafting for me haven't flaked..  She hasn't even given me a PM to let me know that she has received.  Extremely rude  IMO Angry

I hear you qazicat-I also made something and it was actually a very $$$ package for one of them...sucks but then think about all the people who you sent stuff too and loved it (read above post) and that makes it better.

If you haven't recieved or sent yet and havent recieved an email from me asking about an update - let me know
I keep meaning to do feedback but Im never at a computer where I can do it easily (aka print it out...Im one of those people) so I promise promise I will have EVERYTHING done by friday and will try to do bits and pieces this week but if that fails -friday afternoon I have work off and will work on it.

If you have anything that cant wait til friday - aka your feedback is wrong and you want to be in swap four PLEASE PLEASE send me an msg and I will fix it ASAP (and Im sorry in advance-I got a bit craftster overwhelmed for a while and Im good now...but I just need my block of time).  OTherwise friday should have all updates and feedbacks done except a few angels and stragglers.
I will put out another msg whern everything is good and respond to you individually if you send me a pm from here on out so you know I recieved it.

Thanks for your patience.
Erica
