11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Silk applique cushion on: December 26, 2016 11:36:57 AM
That's beautiful! You always come up with these really original ideas. And it really worked out, it doesn't look wonky at all, kind of 'improvised' but not in a carelessly-put-together way. I'm sure it was quite a lot of work. I also really like the detail of the straight line quilting, it's really simple but it does finish it off really well.

I have (sort of) started something!!

MareMare sent me what looks like an entire charm pack of blue-brown-orange fabrics (thanks again! really generous) and I have picked some of them to make an EPP mug rug. I'm currently trying to decide the kind of shapes I'm going to use.

One thing I liked very much about this swap is that you get to use so many fabrics you normally wouldn't even look at. If someone had asked me in advance if I'd like to get pastel orange fabric I might have said something like meh, maybe not. But now I have them I really like them, so much actually that I'm going to use them first.

Oooh I love the pink one!! I can imagine it was hard to part with it, especially if it's going to someone that doesn't appreciate just how lovely it is.
14  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Prairie schooler / primitive type swap? on: September 15, 2016 06:41:20 AM
I always thought primitive style cross stitch was way too uncool for Craftster, but recently I've seen a few projects turn up on the needlework board. Is anyone interested in swapping them? Possibly in the shape of christmas ornaments, considering the season, but I like other themes as well.

Here are my final two groups to post:

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'm actually quite shocked you spent more on shipping than I did! Even though you guys are sending mostly domestic and I sent every single one abroad. No idea stamps were so expensive elsewhere.

I sent mine as letters too. The price difference is huge. It surprised me how high the shipping costs are for a letter from the US to Europe. The other way round is much cheaper  Wink I paid 3,75 (that's, maybe $4,25?) for every one I sent. Luckily, letters can be up to 32mm in thickness in here, because sending them as a parcel would not have been an option (25 each).

I have been busy for the last couple of days, I haven't posted any pics or replied to PMs for some time. I'll make up for that today or tomorrow, I promise!
19  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: 2016 QuiltAlong, now with prizes! on: August 29, 2016 11:54:36 AM
That rule of S sounds familiar  Tongue And by the time I'm ready to bind the quilt, I too have that feeling that the worst is over now!

I can't really think of any larger space that I could use, but my living room is just big enough to baste a quilt this size, if I push some furniture to the side of the room. I've moved my desk away from the wall so there's space for the quilt to hang down at the back.

Renting time on a long arm or having someone quilt it on a long arm is probably the best solution, but it's so expensive that I can't really afford to do that on a regular basis. For a real heirloom quilt it would definitely be worth the money though, it looks gorgeous. So far I've mostly hand quilted larger projects but I'm starting to appreciate the look of machine quilting more and more.

It seems everyone has been busy swapping recently!

I have a practical quilting question: how do you all make larger (bed sized) quilts? I'm currently trying to baste, quilt and bind a 1,50 by 2 meter quilt top and the size is really discouraging me. It's just so big. Anyone have any good tips?
