11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Upcycled Baby Quilt on: March 18, 2013 10:07:58 AM

What was once a pile of thrifted linen clothes...

Is now a baby quilt!

Here are some action shots:

12  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Denim Power Up Quilt on: January 23, 2013 08:49:16 AM
I made yet another denim quilt.  This one is 44 X 44, which was a mistake.  I meant for it to be 40 X 40 and use it for a rug but I measured wrong.  So I gave it to my son, who said it was the perfect size for a super power, power up blanket, duh.  Smiley

I machine sewed small squares onto bigger squares which was oddly satisfying.  The bigger squares are machine pieced together.  

The backing is a remnant from IKEA.

It's hand quilted together, the quilting pattern was improvised squares and rectangles.

I do have some close ups. 

I like to make my quilting lines meander a bit. 

They are just more interesting to me that way.

They were hard to get good pictures of.

Very sweet!

I finished this just in time for the shower.


I machine pieced squares cut from denim pants together and then hand quilted it to soft red flannel with different colored embroidery thread.  
16  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Travel Journal on: June 20, 2012 07:02:36 AM

This is my first attempt at making a travel journal.

I messed up the binding, which I got from How To Make Books by Esther K. Smith (I love this book!)

It was really fun to make.
17  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Baby quilt made from Upcycled Jeans on: June 08, 2012 08:23:50 AM
I finished and gifted this yesterday.



It was fun to make but I made a pretty big rookie mistake.  I didn't wash the backing fabric first.  I thought it would take on a nice vintage-y feel but it shrank A LOT!  The denim side is pretty dang bumpy now but it's still functional. 

Bumpy fabric

I really enjoy hand quilting more than I ever would have thought. 
18  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Quiver and Bracer on: May 29, 2012 09:48:21 AM
Hi.  I've been playing around at archery with my local SCA.  They are such nice people and they let me use their equipment and give me tips.  It was time for me to bring some of my own equipment so using an old pair of kids jeans I made a quiver and a bracer. 
The work was quick and basic.  I used the leg for the quiver body and sewed several layers on the bottom, using a pocket on the outer layer.

  Ties to attach it to a belt loop.

The bracer was made from the other leg, I doubled it over twice and then sewed it up and used some elastic to keep it on. 

The next step will be making finger tabs but I think I'll need to use leather for those.

Thanks for looking
