21  Re: 50 States Block Swap Round 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by magadoo on: August 30, 2009 07:44:53 AM
So here are my 4th and 5th set of blocks:

I decided to use pretty fabric for New Hampshire.  New Hampshire's state flower is the purple lilac.

This is Delaware! YAY!  I was able to figure something out for Delaware.

One more set left!

I just thought I would post one of the bookmarks I sent to kiden2.  She received awhile ago so here it is:

One of her themes was caffeine and I wasn't sure how I could make it work, so I came up with the caffeine molecule instead of a cup of coffee or tea because caffeine can be found in a lot more than that.

23  Boogie, robo-boogie in Stenciling: Completed Projects by magadoo on: August 18, 2009 07:15:25 PM
About a week and a half ago I wanted to try my hand at freezer paper stenciling.  It's very fun and I really wanted the ink to dry faster when I finally put it on the shirt.  I was inspired by FOTC "The Humans Are Dead" and the vintage robots.  Anyway, here's the result of my first stencil:

Concept drawing

Outer stencil off after the ink dried (so far so good)

After all the paper came off and final touches put on

And placement (please excuse the after work-I hate the world but I'm excited about my new shirt-look)

24  Do you hoop? I do now! in Completed Projects by magadoo on: August 18, 2009 06:58:50 PM
I have recently come to love hula-hooping, like really loving it, and I decided that I wanted a whole bunch.  I decided that instead of spending a bunch of money on pre-made, pretty hoops, I dropped some money on irrigation tubing, connectors, and electrical tape.  Here's what I came up with:

So far only three and following are close-ups of how I decorated them:

This one's a little fuzzy but it does show my favorite combination of colors- green, yellow, and white.

Thanks for looking!

25  Harry Potter paper piecing (say that 5 times fast) in Quilting: Completed Projects by magadoo on: August 01, 2009 02:48:21 PM
I recently heard about paper piecing and even though I'm a complete complete at all types of quilting, I am ambitious.  I came across http://sewhooked.org/ and I just had to try the Hufflepuff paper pieced pattern.  So, I tried it and it took me 3 hours from start to finish (I know it's an incredibly long time for one block but don't forget, I'm a newbie) and it came out a little wonky.  There are two pieces that weren't big enough so there are missing spaces, but here it is-

I know it's not a complete project but I'm hoping that one day it will be.  I want to do a Harry Potter themed quilt for my mom featuring Draco and Slytherin house.  If I can do this I'll be sure to post a finished project!

I really love your fabric choices everyone.  I have decided to post photos of my three finished blocks.  I will let you gals figure out which states they're for (although, the one should be pretty obvious!)

I still have to square them all up because even though I cut everything to size, when I sewed the pieces together, they got all wonky   Undecided

27  Caffeine bookmark -Look away kiden2! in Needlework: Completed Projects by magadoo on: July 21, 2009 06:54:26 PM
For the themed bookmark swap, one of my partner's themes was caffeine.  I wasn't quite sure how to turn caffeine into a bookmark so this was what I could come up with:

I didn't get a picture of the back but it's a really nice blue fabric like the color of the word caffeine.  I also put some real caffeine on the bookmark in the form of the molecule and some coffee stains.  C & C appreciated!  Thanks!

Okay, so here are a few of my in progress pics:

I also have a picture of the eight finished blocks for the first state but I figured I'll leave that out so there's some surprise!

I received today from kiden2.  I got some beautiful bookmarks:

And a close-up:

It looks like a bunch of scraps quilted together, but the fabric could just be that awesome!

Next are a few corner bookmarks:

I am loving the elephants on the two!  And the last one:

All of these bookmarks are beautiful;  thank you so much kiden2!  Consider me spoiled!

I received my last doo-dad today from Aquasnow!  It's a very soft hat.  I added a doo-dad of my own because I thought the two went well together:

Now with my doo-dad:

Thank you Peaches Everyday, Rowenlynn, Aquasnow and Jadeye!  This was a super fun swap!
