2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Ideas for corner blocks on shirt quilt additional question on: February 28, 2014 07:45:04 AM
Hello quilters!

I'm making this recycled shirt quilt a la Kathy's Quilts from 2009:  http://thethriftyquilter.blogspot.com/2009/06/seven-shirts-seven-steps-one-thrifty.html

What do you think I should use for corner blocks? I'm mulling some sort of pinwheel made of the dark shirt scraps on a light shirt background. The blocks should come out to 6 1/2". I've never done any pinwheels. I'm still not a precise quilter, so don't judge me on wonky,  wavy or waffly-ness you see here. I suppose another nine patch would be easy enough.

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Beer tote on: December 20, 2013 09:58:11 AM
I may be done crafting for this Christmas. I based this tote on one I found online and modified it according to what we had on hand for tools, scrap lumber and my skill level. http://thenewhobbyist.com/2012/11/making-a-wedding-wooden-beer-totes/#comments

I added a couple of bottle caps to the ends of the handle and will add more along the side rails. Unlike the craftsman I imitated, I cobbled this together with screws and glue, and didn't stain or sand it. My measurements were not precise, so a couple of bombers will fit on one end and four regular size bottles will fit next to them. I meant to do that. Wink

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Beer Tasting Glasses and Tray on: December 16, 2013 05:54:45 PM
I painted a wooden tray with chalk board paint and used etching creme and stencils to enumerate 8 glasses with the numbers 1-4. Now my handsome hubby will have a two flights of glasses for beer tastings. We can use chalk to write the names or styles of beer on the tray.

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Lighted Snowflake Lifts Gloom: added photos on: November 30, 2013 10:11:15 AM
It's dark at 4:30 in the afternoon and that can make me feel blu-ish. So I have shouted back the dark by building my own snowflake for the front of our house. It's more Cub Scout than Martha Stewart, but I like it.


A 10' section of pvc pipe, a pvc drain cover, silicone caulk, a string of lights, a couple of waste CD's and some electrical tape is the recipe for a small, stinky mess in the garage followed by a bright addition to the exterior of our home. The generic winter theme means I can keep it up long past Christmas without feeling guilty.

7  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / How to repair a frayed spot on: January 22, 2013 12:40:18 PM
Here's a small photo of my second quilt ever, a Quilt of Valor. I just got it back from the quilting volunteer yesterday and noticed that the washing uncovered a few places where my piecing and sewing skills weren't quite up to snuff.

How would you suggest I patch or mend these frayed spots?


Here is a slice of the quilt, back and the presentation/pillow case



My quilting partner did a beautiful job of quilting stars and swirls in red on the top and blue on the backing.
8  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Store bought duvet cover + quilt top= new duvet cover? on: January 18, 2013 04:06:53 PM
I have a quilt top in progress that's not big enough for our bed. So I bought a duvet cover and would like to sew the strips of quilt top that I have onto the duvet cover or some such solution.

Anyone done this? Were you happy with the result? I'm thinking of making long envelopes with top + muslin, turning them inside out and top stitching them onto the duvet cover.

Plan A: drill holes to secure cord for necklaces, rings to earrings etc.

Plan B: glue to commercially available metal backing, string on necklaces, earrings etc>

Your thoughts?
