231  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: OTHPT2 aka One Tiny Harry Potter Thing Round 2~Signups Closed ~ Sendouts Mar. 31 ~ on: February 14, 2011 01:19:49 PM
I'd like to join!  It looks like fun, and I like doing smaller-sized swaps (since Canada Post is outrageously expensive, lol).

I'm a huge HP fan, and hope to go to Wizarding World this November along with Disney World.
232  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / 30's repro fabric baby quilt on: February 14, 2011 11:41:17 AM
A little baby quilt I whipped up using a charm pack of Robert Kaufmann reproduction 30's fabrics!  The sashing is just cream cotton, and the bias tape is some random pink flowered fabric I had sitting around.  I backed it in polar fleece instead of making a quilt sandwich, since it's less likely to slide off something and is almost as warm Cheesy  The label is just another piece of cotton with her name and birth date stitched on by machine!





This is the first baby any of my friends have had, so she's getting rather showered with both bought and hand-made gifts!  I'm 3/4 of the way through knitting her second sweater too Wink

Sorry I took so long in posting my pictures!  I got some very cute fabrics from MommyTheMaid that came in a WICKED envelope (MTM, did you know that I have my Grade 10 Classical Piano and took Operatic Voice in University?) made of sheet music.

At any rate, we were in the midst of moving and then had no internet because the company screwed up our appointment, but here we are with my favourites!



I haven't done anything with my I-spy squares yet, but I think I'm going to just do them in a quilt-as-you-go style with black bias-tape binding between every square.  I have enough to do either two quilts or a double-sided quilt - since we want to have two kids, I'm thinking I should make two Wink

Awesome new fabrics everyone!  I was starting to panic about my packages - apparently Kindereggs aren't supposed to be mailed to or sold in the US!  I knew that they can't be bought there so that's why I sent them  Cheesy  Roll Eyes

I love that owl fabric Chrissy, I also have the green one!  I'm planning on making that a decorative panel on a mai-tei baby-wearing wrap...once I have the kids that need the I-spy quilts too lol.

My favourite fabrics (and a little extra surprise!) from Crissycrafts!



Thanks I love them!  The earrings are really cute too.  The lolly I already ate...  Grin

Sent my two packages today, and also received one!  Pictures shortly, once I've wrangled my camera and the mess in the living room Cheesy

I bought some new fabrics today, and cut a bunch out.....until I remembered that I said I'd swap with 2 people instead of 1!  D'oh!  Oh well, I'll do more cutting tomorrow.  I've also raided my mom's and MIL's stashes, and am going to the quilt store tomorrow for a few more fat quarters.

I'm trying to decide how I want to put together my own quilt.  I LOVE the magnifying glasses but have neither the time nor patience to do that.  I might put it together with black sashing between the blocks instead.
238  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do you create matelasse designs? Similar to smocking I think on: December 14, 2010 07:32:08 PM
This actually reminds me more of trapunto work - you sew a shape (either partially or completely closed) and then stuff it afterwards.  In most trapunto you sew a closed shape, then use a small awl to split the weave apart, gently push stuffing in, then close the weave up again.  Here I think you could just not close the ends of the v's slightly before stuffing, then close after if you wanted.

Hope that helps!

I'll participate!  I don't have any new fabrics though so I'd have to swap with different people if that's OK Smiley

Hi guys!   I'm sorry it took so long to post - I was away last weekend, our landlord only checks the mail twice a week, and I work 12-hour shift with a 2.5 hour commute, phew!

I received my awesome fabrics from Sajona early this week!   I have a (bad, unfortunately) picture of some of my favourites:



There's a ballerina, fireflies, ballet slippers (I did ballet for 7 years!), dragonflies, a camel (my husband worked in Egypt and rode on one!), giraffe, and froggies!

Thanks Sajona, it was awesome Cheesy
