1  Re: 14 Quilt Projects in 2014 Quilt Along! in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by pickseedust on: February 12, 2014 02:25:19 PM
Done, whoo hoo! This one has been in progress for an embarrassingly long  time. It is a Denise Schmidt pattern called "What a bunch of squares". I hand quilted it.The back is pieced with a couple flannels, my first time using flannel as a backing. I wanted it to be extra warm. It is the first quilt Ive made for my own bed so Im so excited to use it.

um...cannot figure out why it keeps uploading sideways. Its not sideways on my computer.

And that's our new puppy, Huckleberry. Love the Minecraft quilt. I hope you don't mind me copying but I have added two of those to my list for my minecraft-obsessed boys. Just what I needed-more projects!!!

I finally have my first Quilt of 2014 completed and ready to share! It's a mini. I'm doing a wall of minis in my craft room/office. It is a block from the Spools Quilt in Quilty Magazine. Its about 24" square.

And, if all goes well I will have my second share tomorrow. Just finishing the binding and sending this baby to the washer and dryer. I managed to get the binding sewn in 2 nights watching Call The Midwife on Netflix.

4  Re: Christmas Stocking Swap Round 9 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by pickseedust on: December 09, 2013 10:48:27 AM
I received an amazing stocking from GranniesAnnie this weekend. Here is a peek:
First is the lovely cream and light green stocking. It is huge, stretchy, and really well made.

Almost as big as my youngest!

Here is everything unwapped and out of the box.

Up close of the homemade bath salts and lipgloss:

And here are more crocheted goodies-a bath poof and a Chicago Bears hat (which happens to be my favorite thing):

Now look at this ADORABLE pair of Elf Dust earrings:

And a handmade charm bracelet. Very pretty!

And last but not least here is my collection of store bought gifts-a wooden spoon, cookie tin, lots of washi tape, Christmas tree stickers and a magnetic needle case:

This was my first big swap and I couldn't be happier with what my partner made me. Thank you so much Annie!!!

6  Need Help with fabric decisions PLEASE in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by pickseedust on: November 17, 2008 01:50:33 PM
I am really bad at picking different fabrics/colors to go in my quilt. Any suggestions appreciated! This is for a 2 year old boy but I didn't want it to look babyish. Natural greens/blues was my goal. Im using all the solids in the bottom right corner. I am doing a version of Denise Schmidt's Hop Skip & Jump quilt. Id like to use fabrics in my stash-here is what I have that fits the colors:

Thanks for lookin!
