1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / The Stars at Night, are Big and Bright... on: October 06, 2014 10:31:29 PM
(sing it if you know it)

My oldest and dearest friend just had a little baby boy and since baby quilts are like the most fun thing to make ever, I whipped this little guy up!

I found this super cute star print fabric, and just pulled together a selection of blue and grey solids to match.

Normally I like to quilt everything I make on a long arm but I was under a deadline here and couldn't get an appointment so I just did some basic straight line quilting on my home machine and called it good. I also inserted my little quilt label into the binding!

And then of course I had to wrap it all up which is almost as fun as making the quilt!

These are great! I love the angle in the painting of your cat!

Thank you! I love that angle too, I just have to figure out how to better define the rest of him that is kind of lurking below his big head!

This is my very first post in this board! The Austin Museum of Art offers some really great art classes and I decided I needed a new hobby (what's one more!) so I took a beginning painting class. And I can say that I definitely learned alot, and am pretty obsessed with oil painting right now!

I've always thought that I was just not an artistic person and painting would be impossible but I really wanted to give it a shot, and it's just so much fun, hopefully my little beginner paintings can inspire someone else who thinks they aren't artistic but just really want to paint, you can do it too!

This one is my favorite so far, its my sister's dog Ransom, I painted this in my last class. I have some small issues with the ears, but overall I am pretty excited about how it turned out!
Original with the painting:

This is my cat Bertie, I based the painting on an instagram of him that was taken at a weird angle, where his face was right up near the camera and his body was kind of hidden underneath him. Original http://instagram.com/p/VV90LevJN-/

This is based on an instagram I took on vacation last month! I left out a lot of details to help simplify it, here's the original http://instagram.com/p/auAQHsvJBh/

and just for fun, paintings from my first 2 classes, I ran out of time on the landscape!

Gorgeous quilt. Lucky couple.

Thanks! I just saw the quilt in action saturday night when I was hanging out at their house so I know they love it enough to keep it on their bed!
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Craftster's 10th Anniversary Cross-Category Challenge! Quilting Winner Announced on: June 25, 2013 09:19:32 AM

Craftster's 10th Anniversary Cross-Category Challenge

Craftster is turning 10!! That's right, August marks 10 years of running with scissors all over the internet! In honor of this momentous time, we're hosting a cross-category challenge! Every category will have the same challenge with the same entry times. The 10 category winners with the most votes will be put head-to-head-to-head-to... you get it.... for a GRAND PRIZE PACKAGE!!!

The theme for this challenge is "What Craftster means to me." Now, don't be scared of this theme! Craftster is made by YOU, Craftster can mean different things to different people so whatever it means to you, that's great!! Still unsure it's as easy as I say? Here's some examples that are just the tip of the iceberg!

  • "To me, Craftster means trying new things! Here's a project featuring a technique I've never tried before!"
  • "To me, Craftster means tutorials! Here's a project I made from a tutorial I found on the boards."
  • "To me, Craftster means swapping! Here's a project I'm sending in a swap."
  • "To me, Craftster means a community where I can show off my geekiness! Here's a project that relates to this thing I'm interested in!"

See? Not so bad, eh? Seriously, as long as you can describe why you feel your project reflects something Craftster represents to you, then you're good!

Rules and Suggestions:
  • You may enter in as many categories as you like, but you may only enter a project once. So if you wanted to enter in three categories, you would need to have made three projects!
  • Your project must have been made between June 24th and the time of posting. Your entry should not have been posted on Craftster previously (ie not something you made and posted years ago!)
  • If using a pattern or tutorial, please let us know.
  • You can begin crafting at any time but remember to post your thread in this board from August 7th through August 13th at 11:59:59 PDT. Voting for each category will be open August 14th to August 21st.
  • Although there will be 20 category winners, only the 10 winners with the most votes will go on to a grand prize round! Voting for this will be August 23rd to August 30th, with the grand prize winner being formally announced September 3rd!

The winner in each category will receive a Craftster pin, and a Craftster USB card.

The winner in the Quilting Category will also receive 7 Fat Quarters from Violet Craft's new line, Waterfront Park!

That is ginormous! Wow, love the quilting, just beautiful! Did you rent time on the longarm again?

I did! Although I had a very frustrating time on that particular machine I used, so I'm goign to have to find a new one to rent...

I've got to know how you made the tag!!!

Love the patchwork back too. How long did it take you?

thanks! I got a fat quarter printed through spoonflower with my little arrow and name graphic printed on it about every 2 inches. Then I cut a 2 inch wide strip out making sure to place the graphic just to the right of the center mark that way when I pieced it into my double fold binding the tag would line up on the back of the quilt! It was a lot less tedious than it sounds.

As for time, all told, the entire quilt top and back piecing took me about a month of working on it a couple nights a week after work and then spending about 5 hours a night the last 3 nights working to finish it before my quilting appointment!

10  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / You "Plus" Me = Quilt! on: May 29, 2013 11:01:22 AM
This is my take on a plus sign quilt! I've been seeing alot of them lately and I just love the way it looks! I made this as a wedding present for my best friend and her new husband which should explain my cheeztastic project title Smiley (also who else is singing the u plus me equals us song? me? just me? cool)

it is a slight queen size, will cover the bed with about 6 inches extra on each side, finished size after washing and drying is 77 x 84
