Awesome! You have inspired me. I joke with my boyfriend that I am a sticks and dirt kind of girl, who also loves mud and rocks. Wonder if I could find some fabric with that kind of pattern and try to make something almost as cute as your buggy skirt?
You have real talent! I would love to have you here in the US, I am working hard to get my bod bikini ready by the summer (here) and would proudly wear any one of those, and I'm usually very picky. Great Job!
Aside from the fact that your beautiful crochet designs (dragonflies!) showcase a beautifully talented person, I really love the way the back/bottom of the hat is made. I have looked for patterns similar to this one, because I wear a low pony all the time, and most hats just will not cooperate with it. well done!
Hey all my fellow craftsers, I need help. Last year sometime (2010), Country Woman magazine printed a pattern for little baby booties. They were crochet with thread, and then you took ribbon and wove it through the dc or tc posts in a really pretty pattern. I have made like, 8 pairs, and need to make some more. Of course, I can't find my pattern now. Can someone please help a desperate lady out? I have searched their website, as well as yahoo-ed til I'm blue in the face, and I am desperate. Maybe one of you has an old CW laying around from last spring/summer you could look at? thanks so much!
Hey everyone, I made this for my bf's new little nephew. His name is Maxton (not the quilts lol). I got the pattern out of a book that I have since misplaced. Once I find it, I will edit to include the correct information. I used a rotary cutter and mat, and on the border (brown) pieces, I used masking tape to make sure that my lines were straight. I LOVE TO QUILT now!!! I used 100% cotton everything (except the poly coated thread) and I did the entire thing by hand. ANy c/c appreciated, specially since I am still learning.
Well, I finished my first quilt today, for my bf's nephew who was born on the 23rd of December. I hand did binding and all ( I bought the binding tho) and I am hooked! I have two more to make for his family that I need to finish by January 14 or so, and then I am off the hook until april or so (yet another baby on the way, and its a boy too, so they will have 4 boys under 2 1/2 in their family at one time, no multiples!). In between the January and April quilts, I may try to make one or two and try to unload them on someone lol. I am excited, but I also would be ok if I ended up giving them as gifts later on, that would be ok too. I will post pics later in the finished thread!
Thanks so much! First of all, I had no idea there was a Quilters Market- I was just meaning the demand for quilts lol. the rest of your answers were great, dont wanna write a novel again tho... I had not really even thought about looking for quilting message boards! I guess it was my brain freeze working on me. As for the quilts I am making now (3 baby quilts). Their usage is up to their mama's. If they want to just put them up and keep them, thats fine with me. If they wanna love 'em to death, that's fine too. I was considering possibly making and (trying) to sell baby quilts that are not as traditional as some that I have seen, i.e. a traditional pattern but in much different color schemes than what you normally see. My current one is lime green, orange, brown and turquoise. Too many fabrics to describe, and my cameras broken, sorry. But, I know that moms in my area consider the traditional quilt patterns and traditional quilt fabric colors together to be too "country" or "quaint", so I thought maybe they would be interested. Around here, a large number of the moms will not shop at walmart, and have money to blow, so I might fill a niche? anyway, thanks so much, you have given me a lot to think about that I had never even considered. It is nice to have someone put my thoughts in to different words so I can re-think them through.
