21  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: My first full sized quilt! on: March 07, 2008 11:09:37 AM
This is fabulous!  All those geese (and all those points!) are very impressive.  And I LOVE the back.  What a great idea with the log cabins.  Now I'm going to have to figure out how to make my backs more interesting, too Wink.

This is a stunning and beautiful quilt.  Excellent job!

I claim AsphaltQueen right back for some original artwork.

I'm in Fairfax, Va (USA).  This is my 3rd claim. 0 sent, 0 received.  (Gotta get cracking!)

About me: I am a 30-year-old stay at home mom who loves to sew, but seems to have very little time to do so of late. I'm not very girly and I'm not a big fan of trinkets.  Basically, I'm very practical and like useful things.  Of course, I consider things to hang on the walls useful Wink.


Crafts

Things for my kids:

I am expecting a little girl late June and would love some crafted goodies for her.  Here are some suggestions:

  -knitted/crocheted blankies in lavender (I'm trying to convert my green/blue/yellow nursery into a girl's room by adding lavender accents)

  -bibs.  I love cute little handmade baby bibs and have yet to try my hand at making them

  -Baby clothes.  I love little girl clothes of all kinds.  I'm just not crazy about pink, but anything else is a go.  Be creative!  I'll take any and all sizes, just make sure you label them so I know what they are.

  -I need a new changing pad to keep in my diaper bag.  Something waterproof, please (maybe oilcloth??).

My 2.5-year-old son doesn't want to be left out of the crafty goodness either! 

  -My sister-in-law is making him a toy kitchen, but he doesn't have any play food.  I would LOVE some crafted food for him.  Nothing with choke-able parts, so probably made of fabric would be good.

  -Dress up clothes.  I'm trying to put together a collection of dress-up clothes for him, but I'm stumped for what to include in it.  So far, all he has is some capes and a fireman hat.  I would appreciate some assistance -whatever you can dream up.


Things For Me

-Homemade notecards.  I love sending homemade notecards and I've seen some really beautiful ones out there.  You can have total creative freedom with this one, just stay away from anything religious or political Wink.

-Cloth napkins, for everyday use, in shades of blue, purple, or yellow

-Anything from my wists.

-Surprise me with what you do best.  Just, you know, try to make it something I can make use of Wink.


Supplies

-Quilting fabric.  I'm a quilter and my stash is woefully in need of some yellows, purples and neutrals.  I'll accept any and all sized pieces (including scraps), but I would really prefer quilt-shop quality fabric.

-Sewing patterns for children's' clothing.  I especially would like a pattern for baby bloomers (you know, to wear under dresses).

-Bias Tape Maker

I claim frosty772 for some scrapbooking supplies.  And probably some trim and purse supplies thrown in there as well.  I'll make a bouquet o' supplies!

Sorry about the link - I fixed it and it now goes to the tutorial and not my Flickr page.

The hands were done right onto Muslin.  I did not do it myself, so I can't give any more information about the technique.  Sorry.
27  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Hand Print Wall Hanging on: August 11, 2007 02:40:09 PM
This is a quilted wall hanging I made for a friend featuring the hand prints of her three nephews. She was given the hand prints as a gift from her brother's family and asked me to make it into something for her wall, giving me complete creative freedom. It was rather daunting at first, leaving me to think about it for a long time, but I had SO much fun with it once I got started.





I used Pink Chalk Studio's Wavy Seams Tutorial to create all the fantastic curves. The tutorial turned out to be super easy and the results were fantastic. I love this method and can't wait to try it again on future projects.

That is incredible!  Is it a pattern or did you make it up??
29  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My New Diaper Bag on: July 07, 2007 01:45:23 PM


I've been wanting a new diaper bag for a while and I bought this pattern from Craft Apple as soon as it was available, but I only just now got around to making it. Since I have such a large fabric stash right now, I made a point of not buying fabric from this bag and using a panel-type fabric that my sister sent me earlier in the year. It's kind of canvas-y and she found it in a hospital craft room where it has lived for an indeterminable amount of time. I'm not good at placing fabric unless it's from the 1930's, so I have no idea how old this is. Maybe the 70's?? Anyway, I love the fabric, but if I bought some new instead of shopping from my stash, I would have chosen something way more subtle.

As for the diaper bag pattern itself, I was very happy. I love how stiff the bag is and how it can totally stand up by itself. And I love the sippy cup pocket on the side. However, if I ever make the bag again (and I want to, but have so many other things to make!) I would customize the interior pockets more to my liking. But, that's just a personal preference thing and the pockets work very well as they are. The pattern is clearly not for beginners. I would have had a really tough time if I had never made a bag before. But I have made several bags, and was able to figure out the directions after some thought. There was no seam ripping involved. That makes me happy. And so does my new bag!

Sorry there's no interior shot.  I struggle with finding time to take pictures.  Something about a toddler running around and grabbing cameras all the time.  Maybe I'll manage to get one later.

Yes, I do all of my quilting myself.  That's why I never make anything larger than a lap quilt Wink
