1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Quilt Pattern - but no seam allowances on: November 13, 2007 09:00:13 PM
Yes, SewHelpMe, that is exactly the block I'm trying to make. I'll use some scrap fabric and test it out. I overbought fabric, just to make sure I had enough. I never waste it, anyway!

Thank you all for your help and replies!
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Quilt Pattern - but no seam allowances on: November 12, 2007 09:58:49 PM
Hi, I found a lovely quilt pattern, but it warned that it was just a 'suggestion' picture of the final image, and seam allowances were not taken into consideration.

Essentially, everything is made from a square cut into fourths, so you have 4 equal right triangles. When sewn together, the squares need to be 4" on each side.

I'm fairly new to quilting, and horrible at geometry. Can anybody tell me how big I need to cut my squares so that after I quarter them and then sew a 1/4" seam, the completed pieced squares will be 4"?

I hope this isn't that confusing, I don't have access to a scanner to get the picture on here, unfortunately. Your help is greatly appreciated!

Great quilt! I love the colors, and your dog is adorable.

I'd make one for our dog, but he's an Alaskan Malamute and sheds like crazy. Any blanket is covered with white and grey if he just looks at it!

He's claimed one of our nice quilts anyway.

What a lovely quilt!

As far as suggestions go for the new quilt, I'm not sure what's been said, but I love The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister and I was always such a fan of Clifford and Curious George books as a child.

Your Wild Things block was my favorite, by the way!

That is beautiful. I see all these wonderfully creative quilts and find it so appealing, but when I go to the craft store, the hobby seems so structured and planned. I saw that you said it was "paper pieced." Can you recommend a book or site on that technique?

Oh, how big is it / are the blocks?

Again, it is beautiful and I'm amazed at your creativity! You should be incredibly proud of that quilt, I hope it was very well received at Phoenix Rising!

How great! That lion looks amazing! I've just started quilting and I saw a TV show recently that featured paper piecing but it went so fast it confused me. That site you recommended was great, it cleared a bunch of things up for me!

I like traditional quilts, but what really got me wanting to start quilting were quilts sorta like yours, one big quilted picture. I figure learning the basics can't hurt first, but what do you use when you're designing your quilt blocks? Any steps you take. I have a few sketches I'm trying to turn into wall quilts and I just can't get the proportions right when I begin to sew. Any suggestions are welcomed!
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: putting stenciling to good use on: April 09, 2006 11:43:20 AM
What a great idea! I didn't even know April 6th was designated as such, but I was aware that April is Sexual Assualt Awareness month. Ironically enough, I was raped on April 6th. I really want to make a shirt now, but I don't know where/when I'd wear it. (Business dress at work, I know it wouldn't be 'appropriate'). Maybe I'll stencil a messenger bag or something.

Anyway, lovely shirts and great efforts to support such a worthy cause!

That is beautiful, can you describe the process a little more. Once you "laminated" in packaging tape, you then did what? I'm not putting the process you've described together with the finished product. What brand/type of paint did you use?

I believe I still have an "in progress" for this swap. Not a big deal, I'm sure it'll get sorted out when you get a chance.

Darkest_Faerie, thanks for organizing this trade, I had lots of fun. Thanks to everyone who participated as well! This was a wonderful expierence for my first trade as well as first ATCs.  Grin
