So Bonnie's birthday is in two weeks and I haven't started on her Skyrim quilt. I can't find any paper piecing patterns for it. Any ideas on what should do? Would icons from another fandom work? Help!:(

Not sure if this will help or not

but this little program at

http://www.cosman.nl/software_en.html

lets you create your own blocks. I love it! You could take am image from the game one of the players and simply do your own block. make it as detailed or simple as you want.  and the program is free to boot

just a thought

well and wonderment

I had run across that program the other day, but it never even crossed my mind to use it for video game quilts. Thanks for the idea carlomb. My husband will probably be getting a video game quilt it the future now.

On another note: I needed to get some fabric to match and older Moda line, so I went in to my local quilting store. They've changed the whole place around. It is all precut in 2 yards, 1 yard, and have yard increments. They have some of the FQ bundles, and charms packs etc. And they only carry Moda now. I was bummed out. I needed 1 1/4 yards, so to get it, I had to buy 2 yards. Kind of annoying.

Thanks for the link carolmb. I will definitely try that out. I do plan on doing some applique. I was going to use some Steam-a-Seam to make appliques of the Skyrim logo. I want to have blocks of some of her favorite elements from the game. She gave me a list but some of the things that she listed seem a little too intricate for my skill level. I might try to applique them. Either that, or I'll just pick out the items with the simplest shapes and go from there.Smiley

meleriffic:I've never heard of a store switching completely to only one brand of fabric. Bummer about having to buy more than you need. But you could always use the extra fabric in another quilt right? Or swap with someone for the extra fabric. Wink

They must have some special deal with that manufacturer...I know lots of stores that don't carry certain manufacturers, but to only carry one is odd!

1. My oldest UFA (started 2010): my Muppet quilt. It's pieced, layered, and basted - all that remains is the quilting. But still, if I have this done by the end of January it'll be some sort of miracle.

Ahem. Miracles do happen. Well, really, it's more like I'm just a poor estimater of my time. Cheesy

Question: When you guys are pressing your seams, do you prefer to press them open, or press them to the side?

Also what size would you consider a lap quilt to be? I've seen so many different sizes on the internet, so I'm not sure what is the best size for a lap quilt.
