11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Stack 'n Slash Quilt on: July 26, 2004 11:00:36 AM
Really really nice quilt!
I've done a similar technique once before, but it didn't turn out near as creative looking. Perhaps because I had only four fabrics?? who knows.
this is deffinately making me want to try it again....
hmm...rainy day here...I think I'll head home to my sewing machine now...!!

A quilt in a night is totally do-able!!!
(think small!!)
You could find a block design you like, make one or a few, and make a small quilt (I'm talkin' pillowcase size!).  I think it would be an excellent project - an all nighter quilting bee!
If you pulled off a few mini-quilts, you might be able to patch 'em all together for a full size after a week or so!

I'm also no mad professional, but I think you've got more leeway than you might assume..
The last quilt I made had some applique designs in the main frame, I used 2nd hand velvet shirts and fleece and cottons, etc... It's held up pretty good.
Perhaps the main consideration is what is the life expectancy/purpose of this quilt? If it's for a baby quilt, it probably will get washed quite a bit, but only for a couple of years until the lil' un sprouts legs. If it's a wall hanging quilt, work away on any old fabrics!! If it's long-term endurance you're after, the more cotton prints, the better.
Mixing fabrics for small embellishments and non-structural pieces should be no worries...
15  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Re: wal mart.... on: June 03, 2004 12:41:56 PM
about the cheap walmart patterns : for anyone who cares, and I'm not saying everyone does, do a search under Why Wal Mart is Evil and see what  comes up. I would personally feel much better about my projects to make my own pattern than to know I helped enslave Indonesia just to make some crafty shorts...
On the other hand, I know we ain't rich mommas...
just speculatin' and advocatin' the information. decide for yourself.

Hey this rules!! I discovered this thread vicariously through librarian.net . I help run a little sprout of a library called Bad Books in Dublin, Ireland and have been trying to conjure up a snazzy sort of book bag... I'm deffinately going to give this a try!!!
