Wow, that is gorgeous! I'm trying to figure how you attached that inner layer--wasn't it really thick to sew through all that wool?

Ooooooh, I like these! Very flattering! I especially dig the little pin tuck texturing on the second two (not sure what to call that technique, haha). Did you dart the bottom of the first one or did you use panels?
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Baby dresden plate quilt--my first quilt! on: January 18, 2012 06:39:02 PM
Made this for my best friend's baby. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. Machine pieced dresden plates, hand quilted everything else. Flannel binding. I spent about two weeks quilting this, long hours and sore fingers. Snuck my Halloween fabrics in, though the kid was born in January Smiley

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Mega-awesome quilt--difficult to part with. First big quilt. on: January 18, 2012 06:05:28 PM
I just finished up this quilt as a present for a dear friend of mine. It's a full size tie-quilt with med-high loft batting and fleece backing--I wanted this sucker to be extra heavy and warm. Every square has a backstory, so it was pretty tough to part with.

Had to piece the backing, but when I went back to Joanne's they'd sold out of the shade of blue I needed, so I went with gray. It matched the binding very nicely.

Me stitching the last of the binding.

This is great! I just finished a dresden plate quilt and this reminds me of that style. Maybe I'll use some of my halloween oranges and make one of these. How did you line it?

How lovely! It's a dreary rainy day out and this dress just makes me want to watch that show all day!

I LOVE those nesting dolls! Where did you find blank ones? I have this great idea for a nesting doll, but I haven't seen them anywhere.

PS. Yes, the shirt was painted with thin thin layers of acrylic. That technique has always washed well for me in the past, but I'd probably still wash that thang inside-out for the sake of that lace. Does it fit alright?

Yay, glad everyone liked the kitty shirt! It was hard to part with, but I know KrazyKitty will give it a good home Smiley

So here are some photos from her lovely package! Sorry it took me so long to post-- my internet at the apartment's been really patchy and I finally got the chance to get to the coffeeshop today.

These are all the zombie treasure layed out on my couch. They all came wrapped up in pretty blue paper, so it was like christmas morning!

It's a tossup which one is my favorite. It's gotta be either this one or the headband. We both found out that we loved the same Night of the Living Dead image with the girl, so she printed it on the back of this awesome roll up organizer! It's so well made and pretty, I can't wait to use it in my craft room.

Here's the other side:

A supercute little pouch with the NOTLD girl on it:

My attempt to capture the sweetness that is the collaged headband:

And closeups of the spooky portraits for my walls:

I really love my package, KrazyKitty! Thank you!

Man, those zombie pinups are my favorite so far! My partner said my package should arrive today--I'm excited like a littlekid Smiley
