CLM, a quilt!!!  Genious!!!  I think the backs of each patch would have to be embroidered as neatly as possible to prevent tearing off little bits or un-doing stitching when the quilt is in use.  Or, maybe doing the tying thing that a lot of folks do on quilts and put a full backing on it.  Totally RAD idea Smiley  I'm permanently borrowing that idea, if you don't mind!

I'm done with 4 now.  These could totally get addictive!  It's a nice easy project while sitting and watching tv.  Lets me be creative and not have to be constantly following a pattern (I've been knitting a lot lately!).

as for the package price i know international shipping is ridiculous. but dont these little guys fit into an envelope?? im hoping...)


They do, but not three the size I made. And also the lady at the post office informed me that envelopes were only for letters - else I could have bought prepaid international envelopes for $2 something and put up to 50g in there. (For comparison sake, the three patches I sent to TSM AND the bubblewrap padded tough bag all weighed 49g)

I may be able to sneak one patch in an international envelope at a time though.

What I need is a reverse Ship It To - somewhere I can send a parcel to in the US and then they split it


SilverMoon, I would be happy to be your "ship it to"...........if you made 50 patches and put in one envelope/package and included $ for each, I could easily divide them up and resend to your partners.............
oh, and I PROMISE not to keep any for myself, heehee  :-)

But seriously, I think any of us would help out international shippers with cost...........

It's a thought anyway............

My very first one down! I'm pretty excited about how it turned out, despite the rough start. I did wind up picking out the stitches around the edge and resewing them (the bunching was really, really bad), but I think it turned out alright. I made another stop by the fabric store last night & found some even more perfect fabric than what I spent all day looking for on Sunday... this could turn into an addiction  Shocked

 I made my first one last night and I think it turned out cute. The back is a little rough but I think my partner is going to line it so that should be okay, and my edges are more rolled than flat but I sort of like it that way. It look rustic.  Tongue   I hope they all go as smoothly as the first one!

It could be done the way Nilmerg described, the quilting done through a top fabric backed in batting (I'd use a piece of fleece since it's less likely to be movey-aroundy) then the bottom fabric added and the edges turned over to stitch last. It might take some planning and fussing but if you used large squares a quilt would be totally doable without taking 10 years, lol.
Here's one I made with 10X10 pieces of tshirt backed in assorted fleece, the seam allowances show on the tshirt side but both sides are good to look at and comfy to cuddle under. I imagine a Teesha style quilt with panels this size-ish would be pretty epic.

Though you know I have done a piece that was sort of a cheat twice that would work for a quilt and have stronger joins.
Panels like this, once the stuffing was in they could all be machine joined together then the edges stitched down and embellishing done.

Or this way which is an outright cheat but turns out pretty ok to look at Cheesy.

Did you guys see Phizzychick's alphabet wall hanging? It's not quite a quilt but it's nearly there.
I can't tell you how much I love this. I'd like to do an alphabet patch swap sometime, can you imagine all the different styles you'd get and how great they'd all look together? Oh man, too awesome.

I don't mean to be a Debbie Downer but I think it is against Craftster rules to send your stuff to one person who then redistributes it. You have to show/have/obtain proof that you have sent to your swap partners.

Ahh. I finished one more last night, started on another, Just need to find my felt stash and cut out a piece. Joys of hunting in a very messy craft space in a tiny apartment! :-D I'm looking forward to send everything out. And a QUILT?!? You think it would take you a year? Perhaps a patch a day, 365 days=one year? :-D Well if someone does that, I would love to see the results!!!  Grin
