1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need Opinions, Quilt-Giving Etiquette? on: March 15, 2010 03:30:30 PM
I think that would be fine--just be sure you don't get her into the habit of assuming that if she picks out fabric for you, you will freely and happily turn it into a project meant for her!

I agree, the last one gives the most definite sense of center, and creates a good secondary shape.  I only wish your absolute center block was green/green rather than green/pink, as it would give more symmetry to the whole set.

The fabrics you chose are gorgeous!  I really like the overall pattern.

I'm so glad you finished this, Shallbe, it looks great!  It's very snuggly looking.

It's gorgeous!  It looks like the perfect size for a baby blanket.

Thanks for all the compliments  Kiss

I'm happy to hear that I'm not the only one who whittled away the days of a LDR by playing scrabble at night with their loves. 

Originally, the agreement was that if I make the quilt, boyfriend would make me some tiles, but I might make a few tile pillows with our initials, now that so many of you have mentioned it!
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / First attempt at sashiko on: January 09, 2010 07:10:11 PM
I'm planning a big sashiko project later in the year, so I figured I'd do some practice on a belated holiday card for my friend.




Since this was my first try, I just used some embroidery thread I had hanging around (rather than true sashiko cotton), so there are a few bits that are twisted more than I'd like.  I also made the idiot move of working right to the edges and not leaving any seam allowance, so it was a little tricky getting it into the "frame" of the card.  

The fabric is just plain cotton leftover from another project, and I used a chalk pencil to sketch out the design.  I pressed the fabric after washing out the pencil, and it flattened the stitches out a little bit, which I'm not too happy about Undecided  Any tips? Huh  For the full size project, it won't really matter as much but for this card it's a little on the annoying side.  Start to finish (design, marking, stitching, framing) took about 2 hours.
Next step? Queen sized sashiko embellished quilt . . .  Shocked

I've been looking at buying all the robot fabrics you used for about a year now, but couldn't figure out a way to use them efficiently (they're a little pricey for my grad student budget).  You picked a great pattern for showing off the fabrics, and I really like the final product!

Those are both realllllly gorgeous!  I love the color palette she chose for both quilts, especially the second one.  The piecing looks so even and flat, I'm so impressed!
