So pretty! I wish I didn't have at least crochet 6 WIPs to tackle. Never mind the other WIPs I have!

The last leaf is incredible!  You have such embroidery talent!

Thanks! The leaf itself is cut from a piece of fabric and fused to a backing piece. I sort of cheated Smiley

I think this round, there were a lot of nice techniques to try out!  I am going through the gallery and pinning ideas for my own patches and future rounds!

I agree! I feel that every round gets better and better! Inspiration abounds, and people are not afraid to try new things.

Animal!!!!! I love that patch! And, it's a good thing you don't live nearby, because I would steal it! Seriously. The Dr. Who patch is also amazing- I never thought about using a gutta resist with fabric paint or acrylic paint. In my mind it was for silk dyes only, so thanks for the info, Wulf!

My partner received today, so I'm going to post pics for her Smiley

First is "Fall Tree," which took a long time to stitch! But, I think it was worth it Smiley




Next is "The Last Leaf," and I stitched the branch over a felt base (I don't know if it qualifies as stump work), and the leaf is free hanging.




And finally, a very simple (and possibly in need of additional embellishment) extra patch, "Fiesta Ware."

Okay, I don't mean for this to have a "snarky" tone, so please don't read it that way. To save my sanity, if you said something along the lines of "if you want to" or "either is fine" in answer to the question about receiving stitched hexies, I'm going to opt for no Smiley There's no way I can get over 150 hexies stitched by the send-out date. I'm a little nervous about getting 96 done!

I think, when we were doing 1, 2, or 3 partners, the option for stitched hexies was more manageable (and I could partner people who wanted them). Once we switched to the whole group, I didn't do the math- 7 people at 24 stitched hexies each is 168 hexies! I don't have a road trip coming up Smiley

Again, no tone (even though I am slightly cranky from the heat). Smiley
35  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: 2016 QuiltAlong, now with prizes! on: July 22, 2016 05:18:20 PM
July 18th Check In

I've been focused on swap stuff, but yesterday, as part of said swap stuff, I did a bit of fabric shopping at some local (not JoAnn fabrics) shops. And, another shop today... But, yesterday, in one of the shops they had a gorgeous quilt on display. It looked simple, and they had a kit for it! So, I splurged and bought the kit. I might try the pattern first and use my Star Wars fat quarter stack, if it works out right.

Here's what the quilt kit should make:



The pattern is called Half Moon Bay, if I read it right.

Great fabrics, MareMare! And, you're right, you should make that pouch right away!

And, this morning I had to meet my sister for a Zentangle class, and when I got there, she wasn't quite ready to go. So, I had about 15 minutes to kill. And, could you believe there was a little quilt shop right next door? When I told the very nice lady what I was doing, she pointed me to a couple of baskets of fat 16ths (or slightly bigger). Ten for $5!  I bought 40 Grin

Behold...



I think I have enough fabric for the swap now Smiley And I still haven't dug through my stash!

Yeah, I definitely spoiled myself! I need to dig through my stash to add to it- some of this fabrics were to fill requests. I did the best I could! Smiley

Here's my haul! Some of these fabrics may appear in packages! But, some will not Smiley
I didn't total up the amount of fabric, but it was WAY more than I planned on. I also got a quilt kit (they had one made up in the store and it was gorgeous, so I splurged on the kit) and 2 sewing themed t-shirts!

They go in order of shopping, from left to right. I almost looped back to the first store to get more $2.99 fabrics. Smiley



And, in the first store, it seems as though I subconsciously picked coordinating fabrics that would look nice in a quilt!

For simplicity's sake, let's keep it to squares since we're sending to many.


Wait? Are we just sending fabric squares? Not finished hexies? At all? Ok. Seems easy breezy...

I believe that was in reply to "should we cut the fabric into hexie shapes or just squares"

Thanks, MareMare! I was just about to post a very similar response Smiley

I was out on my fabric shopping mini road trip earlier. I only drove 32 miles round trip and was gone for about 2 1/2 hours. I think the $2.99 fabric store (it's actually called the Auburn Fabric Outlet) is my new favorite store!

I will post a pic of my haul later tonight Smiley
