1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Baby Quilt for a Girl! on: July 31, 2008 01:29:14 PM
Just finished another baby quilt for friends of mine.  All machine pieced and quilted with meandering free motion quilting.

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Refinished Sewing Box on: July 30, 2008 04:17:50 PM
I found this box on the side of the road on the way home from a party, and I knew that it had potential! Some of the legs were broken off and it was dirty and dull.  Loads of sanding, staining and polyurethane-ing later, it's so much prettier.  I'm an avid sewer so I'm very excited about it.  This box is going to get loads of use now!

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Gender Neutral Baby Quilt on: July 16, 2008 06:45:29 PM
I just finished another baby quilt.  This time for parents who aren't finding out if the baby is a boy or girl before the birth.  Was a new challenge for me to make something that worked for either a boy or a girl! 

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Log Cabin Quilts for Twin Baby Boys on: June 07, 2008 12:16:22 AM
I finished the other half of the pair! 

Here it is:

I posted about the first one here:


And here's a couple of photos of them together.  I'm very happy with their balance of being a set but not exactly the same...

You can see the simple stitching in the ditch quilting here.  And their fun junglescape backs!

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Two baby quilts - finished! on: May 29, 2008 09:14:56 AM
My quilting addiction continues...

This log cabin quilt is one of a set of two that I'm making for twin boys who are on the way...just need to bind the other one and will post it when it's done! 

And here's a simple pink quilt for a baby girl who's on the way!

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My first full sized quilt! on: March 07, 2008 08:04:16 AM
It's from the Flying Geese Denyse Schmidt pattern.  I just made some calculations and made it bigger so that it would be full sized. 

I'm very happy with how it came out, but I really need to learn free motion quilting so that the quilting could be more interesting.  I also learned my lesson about two different colors of thread when quilting on a solid back.  I feel like so much white is showing through on the back.  But oh well!  Otherwise, I love it!

7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Bento Box Baby Quilt on: January 26, 2008 04:32:11 PM
Hi everyone! 

I just finished up another quilt.  Boy am I in love with the whole process of quilt making! I just can't stop...I'm very happy with how this one came out. 



8  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Free Motion Machine Quilting Tips? on: January 20, 2008 10:18:20 AM
Hello!  I've made a handful of baby/lap quilts and I've machine quilted them all - but all with straight lines.  I'm going to try to quilt my next one with free motion quilting.  I'll practice, practice, practice first - but does anyone with experience have any specific tips?  Thanks!
9  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Lap Quilt on: January 19, 2008 12:24:04 PM
Just finished another small quilt.  I'm very happy with how it came out!  The last step of washing and drying it really adds such nice texture...

And the back:

10  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Baby quilts! on: January 14, 2008 11:11:04 PM
I've recently started quilting and I can't stop!  I've been between jobs so I have loads of free time and have just been a quilt-a-holic... Here's the latest two!
