morning glory, wow, did that picture bring back memories!

My family and I travelled to Hawaii a few times when I was young (long, long ago) and on one trip I got a set of poi but had totally forgotten about them until I saw the picture of yours.  Now that led me to wonder where they might be and then I remembered that just last night I had seen a box in my storage room that I knew contained some stuff from my growing up years - so off I headed to the storage room, opened the box and there they were!  Thanks for the memories!

It would take me about 10 hours to make something like that.  Did you find it too, too hard? Did you use quilt batting?

I estimate it took me about 8 hours and I wouldn't say it was hard, just different than anything I have done.  Now that I have done one, the second would go much faster and I would pick my material better.  The animal print was great to work with and stuck well but, for some unknown reason, the green didn't want to stick and I ended up fussing with it lots.

There is quilt batting under each green section and was supposed to be on the top of the lid (so it could be a pin cushion) but I skipped that part.

Is it too early to send out?? Should I hang on for a week or so??

It's never too early to send - the sooner the better, I think  Grin

I would love to try one, so I googled the name and came up with this link for the ones that are looking for a pattern, this looks to be about the same thing. 

That's from the same company - I googled Charted Imagery and found a number of places that sell their kits.

Was it expensive?

I paid about $12 Canadian for the pattern.

is it difficult to put back together?

Not at all because all the sides are connected to the bases.  You just pull the sides together and put the lid on.

Was the company called "charted imagery?"

Yes, that is the name of the company.  This is what I found for their contact information (their is an e-mail address link at the bottom)


and this website has pictures of their products:  (it says to click on the Company Name to be taken to their website but that doesn't work because I don't think they have a website)

craft_ee_me, that looks very similar to what I did only mine had more sides and the little box in the middle.

Would you be willing to list materials used and maybe a tute, or would that be against the rules?

The pattern, pieces, etc. are under copyright so I can't post anything here.

I'll look tomorrow and see what the ordering instructions say for contacting them (check on page 3 for details)
5120  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Backing a cotton quilt with flannel on: January 15, 2007 06:40:00 PM
Quote from: lissaj
Pre-wash both front and back ca few times before basting and you should be fine.  Flannel doesn't  look brand new after washing though, but if it's just for you then no problem.  Also, I have heard not to use sheets to back quilts because they are a different thread count than quilting/decent cotton fabric and over time the front a back will shrink and wear differently.

I have washed all the fabric already so the shrinking should be out.  This is a quilt for me and hubby on our bed so it won't get lots of use - it's more to look pretty - so I think that using a sheet should be okay.

Thanks to everyone for their advice.
