1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Earth Day Quilt on: April 26, 2010 01:23:35 PM
Each square is great on its own, and combined they make a very beautiful quilt! I'd also never heard of sunprinting with paint before--I think I just might have to give it a try!

Thank you, Sakran and soozeq, I will look at those links. I tried searching, but maybe I just didn't choose the right words!  Embarrassed
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / German-English knitting translation--help! on: August 17, 2009 02:42:34 AM
I live in Bulgaria, where there are no English magazines. I found a pattern that I would really like to knit, so I bought it, even though the pattern is in German, and I speak no German at all. Is there anyone who speaks German that can help translate? I tried using online translators, but it didn't help, since the words are technical words.

Here's the first part; sorry, but I can't figure out how to put in some of the German letters!

Rippenmuster: Rdm, 1 M re, 1M li im Wechsel, enden mit 1M re, Rdm. In den Ruckr die M str, wie sie erscheinen.
GI re: Hinr re M, Ruckr li M
GI li: Hinr li M, Ruckr li M.
Kr re: Hin- und Ruckr re M.

Strukturmuster: M-Zahl teilbar durch 10 + 1 +2 Rdm. Lt Strickschrift arb. Es sind nur Hinr gezeichnet. In den Ruckr die M str, wie angegeben. Mit Rdm und den M vor dem MS beginnen, den MS stets wdh, ended mit den M nach dem MS und Rdm. Die 1.-10. R stets wdh.


Okay, there's more but I'll wait and see if anyone can help before posting more, as it's somewhat lengthy. Does anyone know a site with common knitting abbreviations and terms in German? Thanks!

This is amazing!!! It makes me wonder how many inspirations for quilts I walk by everyday without paying more attention--guess I should start!

It looks gorgeous--can't wait to see prom night photos! It reminds me of a dress made on the first season of Project Runway Canada (from the waist up especially).

I had a pair of jeans that were falling apart, but still had good large areas on the legs. I also had a (pretty ugly but I wore it anyways) skirt that caught on a fence and tore a huge hole. Combine that with a zipper salvaged from a broke-up old purse, and you get this little beauty!

I didn't bother taking any photos of the lining, since I was too lazy to put in any fun pockets or anything, so I'm sure you can imagine what a bright green plain lining looks like! I didn't follow a pattern, or even bother measuring before I started cutting. I really love it, and I spent most of a recent sick day handsewing this bad boy. Enjoy!

Side view:

This is my favorite part: the waistband closure, and the zipper. I didn't really know how to install a zipper gusset, so I kind of winged it (that means I had to rip out my stitching at least twice) and I'm really proud of it!

More zippery goodness:

Just for laughs, a closeup of my handstitching, which could use some work.  Grin :
