1  Orange and Teal Zig Zag in Quilting: Completed Projects by danni42683 on: January 26, 2011 11:41:25 PM
I made this for my soon to be born nephew. He is the first child to either of my siblings and I can not wait to spoil him as much as my sister spoils my kids. I have been sewing for him non-stop for a couple weeks now. This is the quilt that I made for him.....
Its not really that wonky I am just not a good photographer.
The backing I fell in love with it is the ultra cuddle fabric from Joann's.

Thanks for looking.

3  Re: So i've made a bunch of these quilt blocks... in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by danni42683 on: September 06, 2009 06:49:00 AM
It would be worth your wild to get at least a 12 1/2 in and then you can still use itto make smaller squares..


If you look at the puicture the RED lines are the 10 inch square (if you have room to add seam allowance you would cut to the 10 1/2 lines)....so what you would do is lay the block on your mat, then lay your square ruler on top of it, cut along the GREEN lines, and then pick the ruler up and line the two sides that you just cut with the right measurments on the inside (red lines)and cut along the green lines again! then you have a square block!

I hope this is clearer than mud...Bottom line, buy big and you get more use out of it!

4  Another fun quilt done! in Quilting: Completed Projects by danni42683 on: May 27, 2009 05:59:35 AM
We (my husband and I) recently found out that his best friend of...well forever(23 years he is 28) is expecting her first baby. I was browsing through the Moda Bake shop when I found this... http://www.modabakeshop.com/2009/03/pinwheel-baby-quilt.html I could not resist I had to make it for her. So here it is. My husband made her promise she would not change the baby's name. lol just so I could put it on the quilt, she isn't due until September so I really hope she doesn't change her mind, she is pretty set though when she decides something she doesn't change much!


free motion quilting is spiral triangles in each triangle and long spiral rectangles in the border

favorite new thing to do, personalizing the quilt with the name, simply free motion raw edge appliqued

Gotta love the soft fluffy chenille back, this is another favorite "new" thing to do.

Now I get to repeat this quilt with pinks instead of blues, and minkee backing instead of chenille!

5  Circles are finally done in Quilting: Completed Projects by danni42683 on: May 25, 2009 07:55:27 AM
So a while back I posted this... http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=288679.0
I decided that I was going to just machine applique the circles on the top, I bought the "template" (on sale) really cheap,actually took a lot less fabric than had I used the bias strips. I just used fat quarters instead of yardage, and I used left overs to piece the binding. then the back is chenille!
I finally sat down and bound it yesterday, now I have a few shirts left to finish up and Liam can come! lol



Sorry for the SUPER crappy pictures, it is really nasty outside so couldn't get any decent pictures and I have a crappy camera, not to mention I am no photographer! lol

6  Little Little Man needed clothes in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by danni42683 on: May 15, 2009 02:46:51 PM
I had a little bit of time so I threw these together. I hate seeing all the babies in the hospital with the SAME EXACT thing on. the only difference is girls get diffrent colored bows "pasted" to their heads, boys they are out of luck! I decided that this baby needs some "cool" hospital clothes! So here are a few things I made up yesterday. Then today I went to Joann's and got more interlock(half price and only need a half yard to make a shirt and hat) to make some more sets since these went together so fast.

Kimono style tie top and drawstring pants.
I didn't make this hat (I think) gerber did! Gerber also made the shirt but I took the short sleeves off and put long sleeves to match on!
Stitching isn't very straight but I doubt he will care!

I didn't make the shirt or the pants just appliqued the shirt!
I have the knits to make four more shirt/had combos! Maybe this weekend!

7  Jungle babies quilt panel! in Quilting: Completed Projects by danni42683 on: April 12, 2009 08:15:29 AM
I posted a few days ago asking how to do these simple panels, I wanted to do a few things for a raffle for the relay for life (my mom owns a business and is raffling things off to raise money) Well one of the Joann's around here is moving to a new building they have everything cheap I seen these panels and bought a couple (one for mom and one for my new little man)!
Long story short here it is! Now I just have another quilt to piece and put together for her and I need to finish quilting my little mans quilt so I can start on the panel and some clothes!!!!! Thank goodness school is almost over!
I decided to just outline everything!
The backing I also got at Joann's really cheap! It is a sage green chenille! It matches way better than it looks, both my camera and my photography skills SUCK!
Finally Finished!

Thanks for looking!!!

8  Your assistance is requested~please~ in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by danni42683 on: April 07, 2009 06:16:34 PM
I went to my local Joann's today to get some white thread, and quickly found out that they are moving to another building therefore they are selling EVERYTHING for 50-75% off. Well I did not get my white thread, but I did walk away with 120 dollars worth of fabric for 60 dollars and some change.
While I was there I found some of the printed quilt panels, this is what the panel I got looks like. I got chenille for the backing, I have made several quilts, but I don't know how I should quilt this one. I will be layering it with warm and natural and quilting it with just the top and the batting then adding the chenille to the back after the quilting is done and then binding the whole thing.

My question is how should I quilt this panel?

I don't want to get to labor intensive I need this done (among other projects I am working on) by the end of the month, this will be donated for a raffle, which will benefit "Relay for Life" an American Cancer Society program to raise money for cancer research!

9  Shirt for my new little man! in Needlework: Completed Projects by danni42683 on: April 04, 2009 11:39:43 PM
I am due in June, someone on a baby forum that I spend my free time (what little time is not spent on craftster) posted this link. http://www.tinysprouts.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=38 Although those outfits are SUPER SUPER cute, they are also SUPER expensive! So I found a white onesie printed up my design, put it on the shirt (crooked), put it on the shirt again (straight) and stitched it! Here is what came of it.



I haven't washed it yet so the unused marks are still there, and I had not torn the stabilizer off yet.

I hope to get some "diaper" shirts and hats to put little designs on before he is born, I hate when all the babies in the nursery look the same!
Thanks for looking!
