21  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Aunts are required to be crafty! [+Break Your Dialup] on: July 10, 2008 04:14:42 PM
My sis is having her baby in about 7 weeks and the shower is Saturday. I started this Monday with much trepidation of getting it done. This is me being really really tired. hahaha

Anywho, the design is mine and I think I did fairly well with it. You know, considering I haven't quilted in well over ten years.

The supplies, not including three more yards of fabric I bought later.

Now I know why I don't do this often.  Cry

The backing fabric since I forgot to take a pic of it after completion...

Giant pixelated pattern thanks to a huge mess at the copy shop.  Roll Eyes

TONS OF PINS...Cause I couldn't find the safety pins and it was 4 in the morning...


And the final product!

So...What do you guys think?!?!
22  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / First Time Quilter Needs Advice on: July 06, 2008 10:29:00 PM
Okay. So maybe not first time. But first time in over ten years. So it's kinda lost to me. I want to make a quilt for my sister's baby shower next weekend. It's going to be a crib quilt and I opted for large pieces totaling only 16 for the entire front. It's a homemade design done on QuiltAssistant 2.03 and I'm rather proud of it. But I need a little help with ideas here.

The Design:

The Supplies:

Should I just do ditch quilting all over? Or would a little straight quilting through the pieces be too much? The outer fabrics are large print plaids and the design fabrics have very little pattern. What do you guys think?

Also, the proper way to piece this one escapes me. Should I do to sun and rays first, then the hills, then the borders?  Huh

Last question: The batting is rather thin, natural wool. Is doubling up on a baby quilt acceptable or should I just do the one layer to avoid bulk?

For those of you who aren't familiar with The Technical Hitch, you HAVE to see it.

So I made my first sewn squishy and used him as the inspiration. There will be various "facial expressions" to come!

And for size reference:

I tried my hand at machine embroidery. Not too bad for my first shot, if I do say so myself!

I posted this in another thread of mine but was told to make a new one so they didn't get lost in the posts.

So here goes!

Pleatness bag without the pleats:

I'm also learning how to make more intricate wallets. I think I'm getting better.

I've found my sewing bug again and can't stop. I made a purse AND a wallet yesterday. And then made this today. It's lined with an old towel that has a tiny rust stain on it. I just hate when water soaks through my apron and gets my clothes wet. But I forgot to take pics.

So I made a purse for the first time ever. It's the Pleatness bag we all love so much, with a few mods to suit my purposes.

The Purse...It's topstitched all around. I'm really proud of that. Extra reinforcement for girls who carry their lives in their purses.  Grin

Cutie heart that I appliqud on cause it's for a contest where ya gotta use hearts.

I had to use pink cause I ran out of white.  Angry

Then decided to make a card wallet for good measure. :gooby
