If you just spread the word through work, family and friends, I think you would be suprised how fast people pitch in. You never know if your brothers/girlfriends/sister. If that doesn't work, you could always look into local quilting guilds or nursing homes.
724  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: To use or not use a quilt... on: January 19, 2008 08:29:23 AM
If you are lucky enough to have multiple handmade quilts, I say split the difference. Pick your top fave, the one you want to keep nice and display it (on a wall, in a cabinet with glass fronts). Then use the others.

I have a Sunbonnet Sue my grandma and both great-grandmas worked on, and they added a hanger on the back. I will never "use" that one, probably just hang it on a nursury wall.

I got 2 quilts for my wedding. One, I use. My mom made it, and she made it to get used. The other is from my (long dead) great grandma. When I have a house, Iwill have it on display on my guest bed, but I would never use it daily. But that's just me.
725  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: January / February Birthday Swap! on: January 08, 2008 01:52:26 PM
Hello! My name is Katherine, I am 24 and I live in MT with my hubby and puppy. I sew, make jewelry and do altered arts. I have a blog and wists, although the blog is a bit outdated. I am not a big fan of things for thing sakeI like stuff that functions. If you have any questions at all, please let me know!

WISH #1: supplies
I am spending the next 6 months on one big project, which is a giant cloth book. I am oversimplifying it, but thats essentially what it is. And I need lots of supplies. If you have any of the below supplies in metallic, that would be a great added bonus!
- GIANT WISH!!! Timtex of any size. Bigger is better, but even quarter-sized scraps will be used.
- Fabric. Scraps that are the size of your palm, all the way up to big pieces. My only request is no prints involving people/cartoons/specific holidays or anything that is a huge print. If you have a question, feel free to ask. I would also love things that are fun to touch.  Thanks Frenchnewwave!
- Embroidery thread, sewing thread and washable fabric paints/markers. Even used ones, as long as there is enough for me to work with.
- Seed beads. Other beads are good, too, but no plastic please.  Thank you Timpani~jax!- Fabric trims, especially cords and pretty ribbons.
- Angelina fibers and/or Angelina fusible film. I have never worked with the latter, and I would like to try.
- Clear vinyl for sewing.
- Interfacing and fusible web. Just like the cloth, any size is appreciated.
- Tiny charms/ odds and ends, especially weird keys. I would prefer not to get plastic, unless it is too cool for words.
- Any weird little materials you think would be cool (tyvek, mylar, etc.). If you want to know more about my project to get ideas, just let me know, and I will give you the big, full-blown explanation.

#2 About 3-4 yards of a good, lightweight (but not see-through) fabric for making shorts or Capri pants. Nothing too crazy patterny, just basic that will match with a lot of stuff.
#3 Carved wooden ring.
#4 Cute, sturdy small pencil jar for work.
#5 Resin pendants. I want something simple, and if someone picks this, I will send them specific examples.
#6 A funky purse. I need it to be practical, but not black. I have some on my wists, and can always send more examples.

I almost cried at the wedding when I unwrapped the second one. I knew it was coming, but wow! And I almost cried again typing about it.
727  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / 2 quilts made for me! on: January 04, 2008 05:40:10 PM
I have 2 fab new quilts to show off! Let me say, right off the bat, neither of these were made by me. I got married in September, I got both of these as presents and had to share.

The first one is made by my mom and grandma. It has some fabrics I picked out when I was visiting last year Christmas. Then they added stuff from their stashes, as well as some others from their fave quilt stores. It was all machine quilted, but it turned out beautiful! This picture kind of does it justice.

Here is mom giving my hubby a hard time on day #1 of being married. Im glad they both have a sense of humor. But more important, you can see how BIG it is!

Here is the boy and dog enjoying the quilt at home.

And a detail of the backing/quilting.

The other quilt is way different. Mom did hers in unisex colors. This one was all in pastels and whites and done by hand by my great-grandmother specifically for my wedding day.

The best part about getting this quilt? My great grandma died ten years ago, so it was like having her back.

Anyway, hope all of you enjoy the quilts!

I am finally posting two pictures. And the pic of my gift and the RAOK is really bad, so I will be retaking that. Here are the goodies!

Here is all the stuff, in my favorite wrapping paper of the year. There is my ornament, a little perler bead snowman. The little knit is a kids hat, and I got awesome blue mittens.

My hubby in his hat, which fits him perfectly.

He also got a bag of cherry hershey kisses, which are probably gone already. We are both so happy with everything, thanks Knichole!
