1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Scrappy Cot Quilt For A New Arrival on: November 26, 2010 03:49:00 AM
I have loads of different fabrics as I love the look of scrappy quilts.  I think they are really interesting as you can find a different thing to look at each time you see it.  So with this in mind I have made my Brother In Law and his wife a small cot/pram quilt for their Christmas present as they are expecting a baby in April.


This is the front and is made from 9 blocks.  I made each block from 16 3"squares of light and dark triangles. Then I arranged them to give the pattern you can see above.  There are only two triangles each per fabric, so I hope this quilt will hold some interest for the little one for some years to come.

This is the back which is just 9 squares of batik fabrick.  i have kept colours neutral as we don't know if it's a boy or girl yet.

It has been quilted using wavy lines, I was a bit stumped in the ideas for quilting patterns when I put quilt to machine,lol Grin

Happy Crafting.x


2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Ancient Circle Pumpkin Patch Quilt. on: November 17, 2010 11:54:08 AM
This is my first quilt ever and I had so much fun making it.  My binding really sucks so I will have to work on that in future but as it's for my 3 year old son I don't think he will mind.


It was made from an old vintage sheet, a charity shop duvet cover, a charity shop curtain and a piece of fabric from my Grandma's stash.  The quilting was totally random and ended up being circle ish which I really like the look of.  I think my son will like it as he has just been moved into his 'big boy bed' so now takes an interest in his bed all of a sudden Grin.
The colours in it remind me of a garden with pumpkins in  Grin
Comments welcome of course.

Happy crafting.
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / My first proper soap. on: November 06, 2010 09:54:53 AM
Hi crafsters,

I love this site and have been lurking on and off here for a couple of years now.  I live in London, UK and have three kids.  We are on a tight budget this year ( but who isn't  Huh) so I am trying to make all our gifts home made and frugal too.

I have made melt and pour soap but wanted to do it the oil and lye way is it is lots cheaper.  I have used Chinese food containers as the moulds and some delicious fig scent which I already had.  The colour is Cranberry red, although they look more like pink blamanges Grin.

I used cookie cutters on some of the soap and others I just sliced to make bars.



Sorry about the really rough photos, it's not my strong point.

The recipe is from this site http:// [url]http://www.channel4.com/4homes/design-style/how-to-guides/how-to-make-soap-09-12-02_p_1.html[url].

Thanks for looking and Happy Seasons crafting.
