1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Need help locating pattern. on: April 13, 2011 07:31:13 AM
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! Grin
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Maxton's Quilt- First Quilt Ever on: January 07, 2011 10:53:26 AM
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.



3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Lurker- quilting market? on: December 17, 2010 01:36:44 PM
Hey everybody, I post over in other boards occasionally (mostly crochet and knitting), and recently I have been lurking here. I know we are not allowed to sell stuff on Craftster, but I do have some questions about the "Quilt Market". First I have a couple of questions about selling quilts. Second, I have some random questions that I might repost later in a separate thread. P.S. As of right now, I am working completely by hand. We will see how the binding goes though Smiley So, if you quilt: 1st questions:
1. Have you ever sold a quilt?
2. If so, how did you determine the price?
3. What size was the quilt and how long did it take you to quilt it?
4. Did you have a difficult time finding a buyer?
5. Is it easier to quilt and sell, or to take orders for a specific design (not really custom work, just letting a person pick either what colors they want or which block style)?
6. Do you tend to see that certain styles are very popular and often requested?


2nd (random) qestions (that I may repost seperately):
1. how many stiches per inch did you average on your early quilts?
2. Any suggestions for types of binding? (self binding, making your own, folding over either the front or back).
3. Have better success quilting in a hoop, or without anything ('free' quilting?).

Thanks so much for reading, and I would really appreciate any tips, etc as I am a novice trying to pick up a craft that died with my grandmothers generation in my family AND my bf's family. They both used theirs skills to supplement their incomes when they had little ones underfoot.
