21  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: turquoise/black/birdie/retro first quilt on: December 06, 2005 07:56:36 PM
There are so many good quilts here lately. This is about my 4th post!
The simplicity of this quilt is so effective, and really showcases those awesome fabrics.
Love it.

I LOVE your quilt. I am crazy/scrap quilt addict, and yours is lovely. I really like your idea of the simpler squares in between, it sets the whole quilt off.
Good work, and I hope the giftees are suitable impressed and humbled by all the work you have put in to their quilt.
Did you sign and date the back?? You should.

ZumaGirl74. You have done a fantastic job with this quilt. Unless the camera lies, it is not to bright or busy.
Great work!  Wink

Thanks for looking guys, and for all your positive comments.
You can see piccies at any of the links in my sig line - flickr is probably best.

Must start by saying
"thank god that Craftster is back!!". Could we have gone on much longer? I don't think so....
 Anyway, the little number above is for my soon to be 11 yr old, step daughter.
She is a Barbie freak, so I'm hoping the pink will be appreciated.

I loved this pattern when I saw it, and wanted to give it a go. I really like the way it has turned out, but I would not make a pieced bag with this pattern again.It got very bulky to sew up.

This is my Natty Girl Sha Sha Dream Bag. It is for my sister for Christmas.

I wanted to address the angle question. Although a 90 degree angle works fine, it will give the bottom of the bag a slightly rounded appearance. if you angle it up slightly, it will produce a squarer/flatter bottom. Has anyone else found this. I took mine up about 1 cm from the 90 degree line.
Does that make sense?

Nikki, try this site. It has some basic instructions for how to piece a crazy quilt square.

http://www.netspeed.com.au/crazyquiltstudio/lesson%20piecing.htm
Another good site, just for the links, is
http://inaminuteago.com/blog/index.php.
Alot of the quilts are very intricate, but you can just go for the crazy quilt look, without all the embellishing.  Once you have done a couple of blocks, you get the idea. To get the spiral is just your colour placement.And remember, always start with a 5 sided piece of fabric. That will ensure that it turns gently, rather than sharp corners.  if you want to, print out a copy of the 'bare' block out of my flickr photos, and transfer that design on to your foundation fabric. It can be helpful to know where your next piece is supposed to go, but, like you say, once you get your head around it, you'll be able to whip up a block in about 20 minutes
There are a couple of other sites that have good instructions to, I'll post them when I find them. You might like to have a look at www.CQMagonline.com They do have block templates I think!! (hope)
Happy crazy piecing...will wait to see a finished block.

Hey , I haven't tried the no sew applique thing, but I reckon it would be way easier to piece on the machine!! Smiley
