1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Panda monium quilt on: June 27, 2017 01:02:08 PM
Hot off the sewing machine is this cutie.  It's from a free (and easy) pattern from the fat quarter shop. 
I'm in love. 
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Giraffe family quilt on: June 04, 2017 10:26:10 AM
This quilt came from a pattern from Sew Fresh Quilts.  I pieced the bottom of the quilt using leftover leaf fabric instead of the plain green strip called for in the pattern. Although the instructions were clear, it still took me a long time to finish.


The back is Origami Oasis by Michael Miller:
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Playful pinwheel on: March 27, 2017 01:10:16 PM
Sorry I haven't posted in ages, but here's my latest. . .



It is a pinwheel pattern that has been modified using the Lazy Angle by Lazy Girl Quilts.  I used an abandoned quilt idea for the back*:



*I went through a phase of buying too many charm packs.
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Starry night and Pokemon Totes on: April 15, 2016 04:38:44 PM
The Van Gogh tote represents my cultured, museum loving side.  The Pokemon one represents my playful side.  Love them both.



5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Noodlehead's Poolside Tote on: August 29, 2014 12:39:07 PM
I love making small bags, but this week I ventured larger and made the Poolside tote from Anna Graham (aka Noodlehead).  It is really big.



I used a plain light weight denim for the exterior and a coordinating floral denim for the accents.  I used some random interfacing/batting I had in my closet, which is working well.  The bag really holds its shape.  I just wish I knew what it was.



I used pillow ticking for the lining.  The bears are in the bag to help it hold its shape for the pictures.

Comments are always welcome.
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Out of Africa quilt on: February 01, 2014 07:48:43 AM
My sister spent three years in Kenya teaching physics at a girls school through the Peace Corps.  Making a quilt for her for Christmas, I used her Kenya adventure as inspiration.
 

I also pieced the back so that it is two quilts in one. . . You can see the stippling here, as well.

Thanks for letting me share.
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Black, yellow, and grey cross-body bag on: August 02, 2013 07:40:56 AM
Do you ever fall for a fabric, even if it doesn't go with anything you own??  That is me with this line of black/grey/yellow fabric.  I am a blue girl.  Everything I own is either blue or wants to be blue.  But  then I fell in love     with a fabric  that doesn't go with blue.  I have had a blast sewing with it. . .  and I am sure someone I know wears these colors. . .  I shared about a bunch of the things I have made in this post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422248.msg5011259#msg5011259

. . . and here is my latest:

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A very pink pleated tote on: July 24, 2013 01:11:18 PM
I scored some fabulous pink batik fabric with a cool shell fossil motif (what are these shells called??) from an older friend who was destashing.  It was a find I couldn't pass up, so decided to combine this with a desire to try a new pattern.  I chose Artsy-Crafsty Babe's free tutorial/pattern, the pleated tote to make this:

Here is an interior shot:

And an action shot:


I am really happy with how it turned out!!  I may have to make more. . .
9  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Super simple striped quilt on: June 14, 2013 07:36:13 AM
Inspired by a quilt I saw somewhere on Crafster awhile ago, I got out some of my unused jelly roll strips, and pieced together a super, duper simple quilt.  This is by far the simplest quilt I have ever made, but I still really like it.

I used variegated thread throughout - pink on the pink strips, green on the green, purple on the purple, then I waited.  What to do with the white parts?  Mettler threads to the rescue- I found a light pink to white variegated thread that was just perfect for the white parts.  Problem solved. You can kinda-sorta see the variegations on the back:
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / The Phoebe Bag's big sister, Ruby on: April 15, 2013 08:44:54 AM
I LOVE the Phoebe bag (see: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=415264.0#axzz2QXx6Jzto , https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418643.msg4955389#msg4955389 ) . . . but did you know that Artsy Crafty Babe had a bigger version, named the "Ruby."  I didn't either. . . until now.  The Ruby is not only bigger, but it includes two variations. It is a big bag and uses a lot of fabric. . .  I usually use smallish bags, and I usually buy small pieces of fabric.  What's a girl to do?  Well I cut up my old couch cover (It had worn thin in the middle, but the sides were still in great shape), and I came up with:
.  
I love the texture of the fabric - it looks great without any embellishment.  For the inside, I used left over fabric from a quilt I made:
.  
The pocket is made from the rounded part of the lining that I cut out.  

Watcha think?
