all of the quilts are beautiful.... I LOVE the one I received, it is hanging on the wall in the diningroom right next to the sliding glass door where I see it many times a day as I let the dogs out! Different parts catch my eye each time I look at it. Again thank you onegroovyday!

Love all the quilts so far! That dress form is super cute.

I really hope you like yours, Sugary. I've still been working away on it, did plan to send Monday but it just didn't get done in time. I feel like the biggest slacker in the world, except I've actually been working on it and other important life stuff! And a coworker didn't show up at work today so I ended up having to stay a couple hours over. Sad

I promise promise promise it will be worth the wait.

I feel like an idiot Smiley  I was browsing the quilting board and saw the quilt my partner did for me, and if you can imagine ever feeling too blind to see that's exactly where I was.  I don't think she posted the link here (or photos) for you to all see but you really should check this out.  There is great irony in the headspin this relavation put me in lol.

Ok, I don't want to laugh at you hon....but!!!! I wondered why you had posted your pic at a funny angle and not rotated it so the person was upright!!  Grin

That's okay I didn't see it until I saw her pictures too. I thought it looked really cool like maze, but I didn't see the human.

My partner is busy with life and I thought that I'd post pics for her so she doesn't have to fret none Smiley *Golden Girls reference anyone?*

Ok, so I have a favorite book called the Art of Manipulating Fabric
http://www.amazon.com/Art-Manipulating-Fabric-Colette-Wolff/dp/0801984963

I used a few that I remembered but most of the quilt was done like doodling. I worked on it in spurts and it has a really fun feel to it. It's pretty cohesive despite the different little areas of individual techniques. The actual "quilting" is just knots, I did all the work on the cotton batting and then sewed the edge of quilt by hand. It took time but I enjoyed doing that part.

PICS!

So this is the whole thing on the towel bar in my bathroom. I like it hanging in this direction but I can be hung any way. I included ribbon so she can decide what she likes best Smiley It's kind of flag shaped...


Here is the corner. I did a lot of techniques on this part. Some couching, some pick stitching...


This section was stitched by machine. I used whatever color I had on my machine. Cerulean, peach, black, turquoise...


I tucked the yellow under the purple and stuck a lace remnant between it. I like the imperfection, it breaks the monotony of sewing Smiley


I made some yo yo's because they are way too fun. Some I sewed nicely and some I used large hand stitches.


Some details of the lace and my favorite red batik. I horde every piece of this batik Smiley


The "quilting" tee hee!


That's all for now. I had so much fun with this little quilt. I took it to the beer fest in Flagstaff and to visit my sister in LA. It's a well traveled little quilt Smiley

Haha!  I didn't get that it was a human either!  But I can never see those 3D hidden picture posters either!  They just look like wavy lines to me! Tongue


I really love the dress forms on that quilt!!  What a cool theme to pick!  I love the patch work one and the blue embroidery on the other one.  The feather boa is too cute!! Cheesy  I love it!!

Cool quilt CraftyMcCrafterson!  I love the yo-yos!!
