31  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Rail Fence Rainbow on: December 05, 2005 09:40:32 AM
Here is the first bed-sized quilt I ever made.  I wanted something bright & colorful... but I think it ended up too colorful & too busy.  What do you think?








PS - for anyone who's interested, I got the pattern out of the book "Relax & Quilt" by Patricia Wilens, but of course - did my own thing with it.  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0848718186/qid=1133817083/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/002-5533051-5796845?s=books&v=glance&n=283155
32  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Asian themed party on: October 13, 2005 03:38:06 PM
My birthday is in two weeks and I want to have an Asian themed party.  Like, I want to have Dim Sum for food, make my own fortune cookies (and fortunes) etc.  I will probably buy at least some of the food premade, and only make one or two dishes. 
I need ideas for:
invitations
decorations
party game and/or entertainment
music
drinks

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!  Smiley
33  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Quilted needle case on: September 22, 2005 09:10:36 AM
So, I'm working on a wrap/case for my knitting needles, and I decided to use up some fabric from the quilt I made.  I'm doing a windmill/broken dishes pattern (alternating light and dark triangles in a four block set).  That will just be the front of the wrap, the back will be a solid color with a sash of fabric across the bottom half to hold the needles.

I'm still trying to work out how to do all the quilting.  I mean, I'll have to sew little pockets for the needles, but I'm wondering if I should do that before or after I sew the back to the front.  I don't want the lines from the pockets inside to mess up the quilting on the front.  Any ideas?


perhaps I should have thought this through a little more before starting  Undecided
34  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Cool but classic quilt ideas? on: September 19, 2005 10:46:56 AM
I want to make a new quilt for my bed.  I'm trying to figure out what kind of pattern to use.  I kind of like the old, traditional styles (nine patch, rail fence, flying geese), but don't want my quilt to look too old-lady-ish, or too little girlish for that matter.  I also don't want it to look really hip now, but then be tired of it in a couple of years.

So I guess I'm looking for ideas for a classic look, something that won't look old fashioned now, but will still look good 10 years down the line.   Any ideas?  Examples?  And I'm thinking of going with a red and/or kind of asian theme with the fabrics (not entirely sure).
35  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / small apartment, big party? on: September 12, 2005 01:35:07 PM
I'd like to host a cool birthday party - possibly halloween themed (in Oct.), but I live in a small apartment.  Any ideas for creative use of space?  Or a theme that would work well with cramped quarters... or to get people to socialize in the bedroom, not just the living room?
