5491  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: my amazing SIMPLE quilt. on: August 26, 2006 07:26:44 PM
Very nice!  When you say they are thin - are they just the one layer of cotton, not lined?

I made shaggy quilts for babies and did large squares (easier), sewed the front and back squares and batting together at once and then sewed rows and so on.  The quilts are pretty darned heavy! 

Or if you wanted to, you could make another backing (so it is shaggy on the outside) and then just use the tie-method for the quilting, with batting in the middle.

Just a couple of ideas for ya! Smiley

Why not!!!
I will call it Flamingo's Fun Spot Grin
But do not be surprised when your kids tell you I have them slaving away making sweat shop items lol

That sounds great!  But for me it's not so much the kids - they keep busy - it's the HUSBAND!!!  Isn't there some kind of camp or daycare for THEM?!

I planned on crafting all afternoon, but mine got sick and my whole day had to stop.  Good heavens, you would think he was dying, it's just a cold.  Tomorrow he is banished to the bedroom to sniffle and whine while I craft!

Here it is: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=112552.0

It was in the section where signups are done already.  That might be why you didn't find it!

Too funny!  When I saw the title, I immediately thought "Why do I have to be Mr. Pink? Grin  I love that movie!

You did a wonderful job on these shirts.  What's your secret?  I tried to do a shirt with fabric markers and they seemed to bleed.

There's a Halloween Swap going on right now, our sendout is mid-September.  But you could easily start another one - I'm sure lots of people thought it was too early!

Details of swap:
Mommy & Me is for Craftster Mommies to get time to craft with their children for another Craftster Mommy and her children.  The children must be involved in the crafting (unless they are way too little).  You'll be sending 1 large and 2-3 small items or 2 medium and 2-3 small items.  You can always send extras as long as you communicate with your partner and agree upon the amount.  Mommies are free to make one small craft all by themselves for the other Mommy, but the majority of the crafts should be for the children.  Yes, if you have a baby that can't craft, you can still join.  I'll try to pair up baby moms so it works out well for you!

********VERY IMPORTANT********
 
I'm warning people right now I'm a stickler for good communication.  Please message your partner BEFORE you begin crafting and please let me know if you don't hear from them in a few days.  Please make sure you PM me when you SEND and RECEIVE.  I won't dig in the gallery to see if you received your package.  People who HAVE NOT SENT more than 5 days beyond the end date will receive NEGATIVE FEEDBACK (this feedback WILL NOT be changed until AFTER your partner receives) so please make sure you have the time to devote to this swap (extraordinary circumstances taken into account of course).  i don't think I'm asking what's beyond reasonable.
(Thanks Kristen81 for the above material Grin)
