1  Re: 2017 QuiltAlong in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by craftADDchick on: April 08, 2017 02:50:52 PM
Challenge #1:

I only completed one quilt last year. I finished one on New Year's Eve in 2015 (finished 12/31/15), and I've made 2 this year with my mom (matching baby quilts).

So, here's my total 2016 production, with the 2 from this year:

Before I forget and miss the March Battle...

Prompt: March Battle Royale- Lord of the Flies
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: n/a
Project Name: Decoy Wasp Nest
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: My mom has a wasp problem at her camper up north, and read that a decoy nest will prevent wasps from building an actual nest. She found a pattern on Etsy, and I stitched it up. It wasn't looking as "ridgey" as the pattern picture, so I did a little tweaking g (not enough to get Brain Power points, however). Right now, it's not stuffed, so my mom can do that before she hangs it. I hope it works!  And...flies are insects and wasps are insects! I'm sure I could go deeper with the false idols and stuff, but my brain is craving simple Smiley

My patches from curiousfae are here! Hooray!

First, is a patch made out of felt that depicts the water cycle. I love how the mountain stream flows into the ocean, and that she was able to represent all 3 phases of water (solid- snow on the mountain; liquid- stream, ocean, precipitation; gas- squiggly lines to represent ocean water turning into water vapor).




Next, some impeccable stitching for a Neil deGrasse Tyson quote (she stitched his name in the tiniest of stitches, yet it's still completely legible- amazing!). I was really hoping to get another cool quote patch (I think it's my 4th one, and I have one in progress) Smiley




I am very, very happy! Excellent additions to my collection! Thanks, curiousfae!

And, the images probably need rotating, so I'll do that when I get on a PC- can't do it from my iPad Tongue

Prompt:  January- Warcraft
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: WIP
Project Name: Water Cycle Game
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: I teach 6th grade science, and with the recent adoption of some revised state standards, I have to teach the water cycle again. The last time I taught it (about 10 years ago), I found a game that sent students through various stages of the water cycle. I designed a set of blocks (9 blocks- 1 for each stage) and made a set of oak tag cubes. When I switched schools, the oak tag cubes got mangled, and I wanted to make a more durable set. So, I re-sized the images and used Mod-Podge to adhere them to some 2" wooden cubes. I also made a set of signs for each station, as well as sheets that showed the side of each cube (I laminated the signs and the sheets). This fits the theme because one of my personality traits is that I am a big science geek, another is that I am crafty, and a third is that I like to find fun ways to teach the standards!

Project Name: Valentine's Day Dance Discount Decorations
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451690.0
Brief Description: In a pinch, I found some clearance items at Target to make some more decorations for our Valentine's Day Dance at school. It was held 2 days after the actual day, so the items were 50% off, so I made the decorations for under $5 Smiley I made a heart garland and some hanging X and O thingies Cheesy

Prompt:  February Battle- Comedy
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: Brain Power
Project Name: Waterfall Album Sample Pages
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: About 2 weeks ago, my aunt texted me: "Are you up for a challenge?" and sent me the link to a video for a rather involved set of scrapbook pages (it's called the Waterfall Album). She had tried it on her own, and couldn't make sense of the directions. I watched the almost 2 hour video and figured I could definitely help her out. So, I spent a day at her house this week, and we put together a "sample" set of pages (we also had to make each page base, plus the album cover) so she would know how to make one on her own. There were 5 different layouts (6 if you count the layout that is the reverse of one of them), and we worked on it all day. It fits the theme of comedy because we always have a lot of laughs whenever we craft together (especially when we make silly mistakes!).

6  Valentine's Day Dance Discount Decorations in Valentine's Day by craftADDchick on: February 23, 2017 03:57:35 PM
I help to run our student council at my school, and every year, we try to add to our stockpile of decorations. This year, our dance was held 2 days after Valentine's Day, and I forgot to get prizes for the dance-off and the limbo contest, so I headed to Target in the hope that I would find some stuff on clearance. Not only did I get enough prizes, I also bought a bunch of themed items to turn into some decorations-50% off!

A variety of felt hearts, plus some chipboard X's and O's (I had the yarn in my classroom already).




I grabbed a glue gun from the cabinet and borrowed some glue sticks, and got to work...

I stretched out a piece of yarn, applied a line of glue to the back of each item, and stretched the yarn out in the glue.




We used them to decorate the columns in the cafeteria. They look a little plain because we didn't have enough crepe paper streamers to wrap around the poles (next year!).




Then, one of my student council kids popped in to see if I needed help with anything, so I had her help me out with the heart garland. She set up the hearts the way she liked, and I glued them to the yarn. Some of them are double layered hearts, which I also glued together.



The kids strung the garland up along the stacked up cafeteria tables. Next year, I think we'll add some twinkle lights to brighten it up a little!



I got all of the decorations for under $5, and we used every piece we had! We've got them all saved for next year Smiley

Just a quick Zap! I'm still recovering from a weekend of my school's annual Winter Carnival (I was there from 9 am until 4:45 pm), and then finishing end of term grades on Sunday...

Prompt:  Zap!
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: n/a
Project Name: Chalkboard Tag Signs
Project Link:
Brief Description: Since I'm in charge of the bake sale table at the Winter Carnival, I've been trying to spruce it up. Last year, I made cake stands and snowflake-themed napkins to line the random baskets. This year, I glued some chalkboard tags to mini clothes pins to make reusable price markers for the goodies. I should have made them Friday night, but was too tired to dig out the glue gun, so I spent some time Saturday morning (fortunately, I had a few student volunteers show up to help with the setup), "priming" each tag with chalk, wiping the chalk off, then hot gluing the clothespin to the back. I'm pretty sure it took under 30 minutes- I had to keep stopping to give direction to my volunteers Smiley

Project Name: Hat for a Bunny
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: I made this single hat for the bunny of one of my students. I found the pattern as a free hat for an amigurumi mouse or bunny, and thought it would fit. But, the hook I had handy (I made it in school on one of our special half days when the kids were working on independent projects) was a size (maybe even 2) too big. I crochet tightly, so I thought it would work. Turns out the bunny (Angel) was smaller than I expected, so instead of tucking the ears into the single slot, my student used it as a chin strap Smiley

The hat!

Project Name: Elephant Crib Quilt #1
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451412.0
Brief Description: My mom and I made a pair of baby crib quilts in about 3 1/2 days over my Christmas break. For each quilt, I did regular sewing, applique, and hand sewing (plus we tied the quilt for the "quilting" part)
Project Picture:
It's not a great photo, but the one for my mom is on the left, and the one for me (to give as a gift) is on the right.

Project Name: Elephant Crib Quilt #2
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451412.0
Brief Description: My mom did a search for an easy baby quilt pattern and came across a photo of one on Pinterest (it was from an Etsy seller). But, you could only buy the finished quilt. We modified the layout a bit to make it symmetrical, and did some math to figure out the block sizes to get it to a crib-sized quilt (it's long and a bit narrow).
Project Picture: (see above photo)
