11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I made a shrug! on: January 09, 2012 08:52:48 PM
This is my first finished garment. I use the term "finished" loosely, as the seams are kind of sloppy and I couldn't figure out how to thread my serger so I did it all zigzag style on my bernina 440. I used a Burda pattern with slight modifications (I wanted the front ties to wrap to the back) out of a cotton/bamboo knit I found at Mill End last summer.

I saw http://www.etsy.com/listing/63436927/irie-goddess-wrapthis shrug on etsy a while back, and knew I wanted one, and figured - how hard could it be? Well, it wasn't exactly a walk in the park, but I did it!
Pics below!

Very nice! I actually photographed another Crown Royal quilt at the NW Quilter's Expo. http://www.flickr.com/photos/jujucabra/6176660151/in/photostream

Awesome! I recognize some of your fabrics from a mega-quilt I'm working on!

I did it - I finally completed a quilt. I made the top the night before a free-motion quilting class (I really wanted to have a project to finish), but it's been languishing for weeks while we've been busy house shopping & getting hitched. I'm tired of looking at it, so I got my act together and learned how to make a binding, and after much trial and error IT IS DONE!

It's sitting in the washer now awaiting morning to be dried, and I'll add a photo of the awesomeness then. It may end up as a baby gift for some friends, or I may just keep it. We'll see how it looks.

Great job! I also have a girl-crush on E. Hartman...I just bought her book, and  I'm going to make it to the PMQG meeting near me someday soon.
19  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Giant blue scrap quilt on: June 14, 2011 01:23:02 AM
I began a patchwork project last fall while I was recuperating from knee surgery. It left me with two large pillow covers and two pieces that I had no idea how to integrate. Fast forward to spring, when I had the urge to sew again... some strip piecing, scrappy squares and lots & lots of rotary cutting later, I have a king-sized quilt top.

Because it's so big, I was planning to "quilt as you go" but the idea was more daunting than reassuring, and I wanted to make sure that everything would be the right size. Now to piece the backing, and figure out a way to quilt it. I need a new sewing machine before I get into that.

Here's a link to the pics!

Fantastic work on the trapunto. Also the string quilt looks awesome! I especially appreciate the piecing you put into the back side. Great job, and so inspiring!
