Here are my final two groups to post:

from Immaculata





Isn't the tiny house the cutest?



I don't think you lost any! Or not more than a few or I'd miss some. I remember now that your hexies were the last ones and I was one template short of 24. I tried to send everyone about 30 in total and I might have thrown in a few more for you to compensate for that one I was short.

I received from craftADDchick today! I'll have pics tomorrow.

I love the tiny heart fabric Quaggy!

I received from Amazon warrior and Averia this week. These are from Amazon warrior:

and she also sent me a really nice piece of fabric that also happens to match a stitched picture that I made years ago and never actually finished up.


These are from Averia. Look at the pieced ones!!!!


Thank you both so much! Smiley

From Quaggy:




Lots of extras, I stitched some of them already as I had some templates left over. I just noticed that my templates have slightly curled. I'm not sure how that happened, maybe it's because of the glue? I hope it didn't happen in any of the templates I sent to you all.

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=448068.msg5391194#msg5391194   My first finish of the year! It had been lying around since 2009, I'm so happy it's done. All my friends are joking that the baby must be on its way now I've finally finished this baby blanket....




I'm glad that someone else thinks it's exciting too, MareMare! All my friends think I'm crazy to would want to take another exam for fun now I'm finally done at uni. I could discover all those new techniques without taking an official exam but if there's no pressure I know I will want to quit when it's starting to get boring and you have to get through that point to find the joy in some techniques. I have recently mastered Richelieu embroidery, which is beautiful, but also difficult, and I know I'd have thrown my hoop in the corner if it hadn't been for the thought of that certificate. Now I'm glad I didn't quit.

10  In Full Bloom Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Immaculata on: June 11, 2016 08:40:32 AM
This UFO has been haunting my sewing desk since 2009. It was my second quilting project ever, after a straight forward childhood project that consisted of rectangles sewn together. I had definitely bitten off way more than I could chew at that time. I'd never heard of rotary cutters so I cut every single square in this blanket with scissors, using a cardstock template. I had also prewashed all the fabric and when it came out of the machine it was a huge tangled mess. I actually had to cut the fabrics loose, I couldn't untangle them. After that I discovered that those bias seams are not as easy as they look and that my squares differed in size because after cutting dozens of them, my template gradually became smaller as I accidentally cut off tiny strips of it every time I used it. Then last year I decided I just wanted to get it done, even with all it's imperfections. It's wrinkled in the photos because the minute I finished it, my boyfriend claimed it. The fabric is from Red Rooster Fabrics, I think the pattern is from Bear Paw Designs.




 For scale. The finished quilt is about 120 by 120 cm



Detailed pictures. You can't see it very well, but I decided to hand quilt. I quilted every other block, I improvised the stitches based on the fabric of the block. I particularly like the sashiko embroidery inspired striped blocks. The texture just feels amazing. I am certain that I'm going to do a larger sashiko type project in the future.



Binding and backing.

This was my first time using a binding from the same type of fabric as the blanket, instead of using a more sturdy fabric. I'm not impressed with how it feels and I'm not sure I'd do it again. I sewed the binding on completely by hand.
