5641  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: My labor of love, my trial and (mostly) error... on: July 21, 2006 09:02:21 PM
Fantastic job - I love the colors you used.  By hand, that amazes me as I don't have the patience for it.

I made a quilt last year following a pattern (which is rare for me) and it was made up of lots of pinwheels - the creator of the pattern said not to spend too much time rearranging the squares as it's frustrating and no matter how long you spend, you will still not like something when you are finished.  I spent quite a bit of time rearranging mine (didn't listen too well) and when I was done, I found something I would have changed.  But, you know what, no one else noticed - we are our own harshest critics!

Keep up the fantastic work.

I think you did a great job on picking colors.  I like how it's lighter in the middle and then gets darker to the outside!

Great quilt!

I love all the colors!

It looks wonderful to me!

You did it all by hand and in 5 months?Huh  Wow, that would have taken me years.   Keep up the great work!

right now I have a truly funky hat thing on there that I would love to make someone... as long as they promise to wear it.  It is a brave hat that is for sure.  I don't know anyone that would reallly wear it...

Made with a warm yarn and worn on a cold Canadian winter day - I'd wear it in a heart beat!

you guys must be totally tired of my hats!

Never!!!!!!!   I, for one, love seeing the hats you make and some day I'm going to put one on my wish list.

I claim craftydeb for:

5. quilted wall art.  If you make it, I will hang it.

This is my 4th claim this month - 3 have been sent and 1 has been received.

I live in Alberta, Canada.

My list:


A large tote bag - with a zipper would be great but not necessary.  Nice and bright!!!!

I'd love a plush teddy bear - around 12" would be great!

A knitting apron like this:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=105539.90 (scroll down page) - different fabric is fine  Grin

A table cloth made with leaf, sunflower or snowflake material, 50" x 70"


A teapot picture with the teapot measuring about 3" x 3" and the Aida cloth at least 6" x 6" so I can frame it to match the few others I have.  (I can provide a pattern if you need one)

Any picture that features tulips, scarecrows or sunflowers

Wooden Items

Rail pet - if you're a wood worker you may know what I mean but if not, check out this for ideas:


12" squares - nice bright colors and any pattern is great

Eeyore, Pooh or Tigger crocheted in thread - I already have Piglet and he's getting lonely for his friends.


I collect real miniature kitchen utensils so anything to add to this collection would be appreciated.  Please don't pick this and then send me doll house miniatures.

This is really out there and I doubt anyone will actually do it but if you want to send me a small, electric chocolate fountain, I would be so happy.

Hot sauce - yes, I know this is another weird item to ask for on a craft group but my hubby collects hot sauces and it would be fun to give him some more.  Most of the bottles he currently has are 5 oz., so a few new ones of that size would be great!

Great job CMeCraft!  This month I like the traditional ones the best  Grin

Next week is my sewing week - no work and no sons during the day - so hopefully I can get June and July's done.
