Sometimes what NOT to do is more helpful than what TO do!   Cheesy Thanks for the details.

hey coco
i actually made a fish quilt a few years ago. i don't have any pics but the book i used for the pattern was called quilting up a storm...this one. theres a pic of that specific pattern on the cover.


I have that book and want to make that quilt, too!  I really like how the color changes.  The directions look pretty easy, too.   I only make baby quilts and baby sized charity quilts.  When they are for a friend's baby, I usually wait until they have selected their nursery decorating scheme and plan something that coordinates.  Do they know what they are doing yet?  Some ideas that I had for my friend who is having a boy were: cars and trucks, sailboats, itsy bitsy spider, Jack and the Beanstalk (the one I have decided on - I'm on a fairy tale kick, just finished Princess and the Pea and the Cow Jumped Over the Moon).  For another friend, I did a jungle theme that matched their nursery.  Sports themed might work too, depending on the parents.

I want to try to quilt as you go, too.  Did you do each square, or each row?  Any tricks you learned along the way? 

I really like your color combinations and your work looks very neat.  The quilting really shows on the back as well.

Thanks! I used this book; http://www.hamiltonbook.com/hamiltonbook.filereader?4409d8c700079b1c271d424d36d60600+EN/products/3259668  I did change some of the techniques, but I basically followed directions! I did fuse the ladybug bodies, spots, and the flower pieces.  It makes it a bit stiffer, but it's easier to work with and more durable.  One of the lady bugs I didn't fuse (one of the first ones) pulled out of the stitiching when I washed it and I had to take apart the square to fix it.

Wow! I really like the variety of fabrics you used and the way you used the buttons on the car!  Great job!  I'm just starting to really design quilts of my own and like hearing about how others start from scratch.

Thanks! So far, I've been able to keep up with the baby production of my friends.  Although going into summer, I'm definitely going to have to quilt faster.  Wink  The most recent one I designed and made from scratch, but I don't have pictures yet since I finished it at the last minute.

I made this quilt for Francesca, a friend's baby.  The ladybugs and flowers are appliqued by machine. It is machine pieced and hand quilted. There are leaves quilted in the solid squares.  The backing was too small for the quilt, so I repeated the square border on the back.  By hand quilting, I was able to make it line up.  

The whole thing

I read the entry form in the link you provided. The way I read it, anyone can apply to the jury process.  If you are accepted, then you must become a member ($30) to participate.  If you are not accepted, then you do not have to pay the membership fee.
