2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Question?? A plush Tree?? on: March 05, 2008 06:27:42 PM
I love this Hallmark tree
http://www.auctiva.com/hostedimages/showimage.aspx?gid=270000&image=90635113&images=90635113&formats=0&format=0

I have an idea of how to make the sides of the tree, how would you put them together? Would you make the one side and sew it or make it double sided and then sew it? Any ideas! I am too cheap to buy this!

9  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Harry Potter Quilt Block Swap Need 7 Angels ---Angeling for ourselves! on: December 12, 2007 02:59:40 PM
Swap Name: Harry Potter Quilt Block Swap
Original Thread link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=201833.0
Gallery thread link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=208206.0
# of Flakers: 1 but I need 7 blocks made since she was supposed to send 4 people 2 blocks

You can do 1 block or 2 blocks it is up to you! Thanks for your support, angels!

However since it is so light you won't need to have a DC. You will make any theme as long as it has to do with Harry Potter

Unfinished size is 10.5" (26.67 cm)

100% quilting cotton

Use any quilting technique you like, but please make it your best effort. The only thing we won't except is iron transfers. But you can paper piece, applique, embrodery hand and machine, stencil and silk screening. Also make sure you use qualitly cotton! No thin stuff from Walmart please.

For anyone that does not have a rotary cutter & ruler, please leave your squares a bit larger thank 10.5" so they can be squared up before being divided and sent on.


Include the names and info of the people who need angels:
annamhudson 1 Block
The rest need 2 blocks
