21  Creepy carnival t-shirt becomes a new bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Eowynt on: January 04, 2013 06:51:40 AM
I am in love with the Phoebe bag  (free at: http://artsycraftybabe.typepad.com/tutorials/phoebe_bag.pdf ) AND I love re-purposing old clothes.  This time I used a Creepy Carnival t-shirt from Shirt Woot.com.
The color is WAY off in the picture, but you can see the wavy, vine-like quilting at least.

I quilted the back to look like cut wood.  Again, the color is way off.

The color is more accurate in this picture.
It was lots of fun to make.

22  Love Bug Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: November 09, 2012 09:05:08 AM
Yeah, I know it isn't Valentine's Day, but I finally finished my Love Bug Quilt, and I am too happy and too impatient to wait to share.

Each block is 5" square.  The blocks came from The New Quilting & Patchwork Dictionary by Rhoda Ochser Goldberg - a book I picked up in 1989 or so, before I made my first quilt. I just fell in love with those little insects.
I machine pieced, hand quilted it (finished while watching the tele last night).  Here are some close-ups of the the individual bugs:

They aren't perfect (some of the points got cut off) and I wish I had come up with a better border idea than just put on binding. . .  but I still like it. A lot.

23  Upcycled jeans -> Phoebe purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Eowynt on: October 09, 2012 08:55:10 AM
Well, I cut apart a worn out pair of jeans, bought a set of discount sheets with a great giraffe print, went through my patterns. . .  and came up with this:

I used the Phoebe pattern (free at: http://artsycraftybabe.typepad.com/tutorials/phoebe_bag.pdf - LOVE the pattern, LOVE the free part, too.)
For the curious, here are the back and interior:

Now I need to talk more people into giving me their  worn out clothes!!

24  Quilted clutches in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Eowynt on: September 27, 2012 10:11:59 AM
I have been busy using up scraps to make purses, wallet, and clutches.  The first uses some of my scraps from the front of my skull quilt ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=413791.0 )

and the second uses scraps from the back:

These were lots of fun to make.

C&C welcome

25  Skull quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: September 03, 2012 07:26:16 PM
My skull quilt is finally (mostly) done.  I still need to trim a few threads and quilt the eye sockets, but it is otherwise done. The pattern is called "Basket Case" by Boo Davis. It can be found in her book Dare to Be Square.  My version is smaller than the original - I made my blocks 9" square instead of 12".
Here it is hanging on the neighbors wall:

Here is a close up (You can see the loose threads and unquilted sockets here):

The quilt is all machine quilted except for the nostrils:

And the back.  I made wonky log cabin blocks.  Kinda like two quilts in one:

Thanks for lurking!!

26  Flying squares wall hanging in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: August 31, 2012 11:15:17 AM
I discovered the "flying squares" quilt block in an old copy of "The New Quilting and Patchwork Dictionary."  As the copyright is 1988, the new in the title is a bit of a misnomer.  I decided it was the perfect block to use with some bright fabric to lighten up my small hallway. 

and a close-up:

It was a fun and easy little project.  I really love the block. It is a great way to use up scraps, and it kind of reminds me of a chunky pinwheel.

27  Bright beginnings baby quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: August 17, 2012 09:05:30 PM
Sometimes I experiment when I make quilts, and then I don't know what to do with them when I am done. This is one such quilt:

After I finished with it, I really didn't know what to do with it.  Thankfully, my daughter's former babysitter saw a picture of it and really liked it. . .  and she just had a baby boy. . .  so I had the perfect place for it.  
Here is a close up of the froggies that inspired the quilt in the first place:
. . . And I always like to see the back of quilts, so here goes:
The new mommy is very happy with the new quilt, and I am happy it has a good home.

28  Re: Spring quilt rail fence variation in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: June 28, 2012 07:36:30 AM
I finally made the pillow cases.

My daughter took one look at my room and announced that my husband (her stepdad) must love me very much for putting up with so much pink in his room!

29  Granny squares quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: May 01, 2012 08:37:32 AM
In keeping with my goal to start making more quilts for other people (rather than just for me) I made a small quilt for one of my best friends.  Her bedroom is pretty old-fashioned looking, with country pinks and burgundies.  She has a pink checkerboard quilt above her bed, and wants something for an empty space on a different wall next to her book case. I thought the granny squares block would be a nice complement to the checkerboard quilt.  I hope she agrees.

30  Car trash can in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Eowynt on: April 22, 2012 10:58:07 AM
 I made a  little trash bag for my step-daughter's new car.  While taking pictures, though, I noticed that it would have made a cute little purse.  May be next time!

I hope she likes it.
