Here's a cute, shy cowgirl kitty for Pearlipie! She loves cats and I thought she might like a kitty on her wild west themed towel! Her towel is so awesome! I can't wait for you to see it all!

Pattern found here.

Here's my addition to IamSusie's towel~

This tree pattern is from Woolly Embroidery book but I used normal DMC floss, not wool floss cuz I don't have any! Crossed chain stitch is now my favorite stitch!

This is the first time I've stitched on a blank tea towel! Kitten Wrangler sent a beautifully hand-hemmed rectangle of linen and mentioned a variety of themes including "traditional Indonesian design" which immediately made me think of batik designs on hand dyed fabric. This design is loosely based off a batik fabric I saw at the fabric store. I heavily used running stitch for the fish details, taking advantage of the loose weave of the tea towel, and french knots all around the fish. Hope you like it!

(I asked my friend what does it look like and he said "pineapple fish" so I'm naming this my pineapple fish Smiley)

8  Re: Lap Quilt Swap 5 - FALL in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by ritapizza on: September 15, 2009 04:54:22 PM
I prefer it when people send bigger pieces and at least one piece that is at least 12.5" long because then I have more choices and flexiblity in what kind of block I can make for you. I sometimes don't have enough fabric to make the block I want to.

What I'm doing is cutting fat quarters into thirds which makes each piece about 7.5" x 18" and sending 4-5 of those pieces to each person in the group and I expect a fair amount of leftover fabric sent back too that I can use to make more blocks.

Oh! these are the fabrics I'm sending, by the way Cheesy I cut them last night hoping that we would get our partners today!

Each person will get 2-3 prints and two solids (one cream and one either pink or blue) and I'm requesting star blocks or whatever inspires you Smiley

I'm excited but when do we start? We gotta recruit more swappers! Or we can do a small group... I'm fine with that Smiley

September snuck up on me and I got this done last night!
Stitched from my own design on white linen roughly the size and shape of a half circle apron.
If I ever get the perfect teacup, it would have shrooms and hearts on it and a bunny in it ^_^

off to the PO at lunchtime to send this baby off to Pearliepie!
