101  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: I HEART Paper Piecing!!! on: February 02, 2005 03:39:46 PM
While I can appreciate the clean lines and points paper piecing produces, I do not have the patience!  Did you use a particular reference to learn how?

102  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Quilted Tooth Fairy(with Jordy bag) on: February 02, 2005 03:37:46 PM
I love the beaded detail!  When I am finishing up quilting projects I tend to skip the small details that really make an item unique (I am too much in a hurry to get it done!)

P.S.  A "Jordy" is a purse made by fellow craftster Jordy.  You can find the link here: 
Her instructions are really easy and clear.  I made one with a flap!
103  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Fuzzy Easy Bacon Quilt on: February 02, 2005 03:35:01 PM

I made several of these fringe flannel quilts for Christmas gifts (finally getting around to posting).    These are easy and fun to make and the payoff is actually pretty remarkable.  Being made of two layers of flannel (no batting) they are super cozy and soft.   A coworker gave me the bacon fabric and the recipient of the gift loooooves bacon, so naturally I knew she would love a bacon quilt!

Love them...

The smaller bear looks similar to the infamous (at least in craft circles) Jennifer Murphy bears.  Check them out:

Hers sell for hundreds as well...don't write off your bear making hobby just yet!

105  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Gifts for quilters? on: January 15, 2005 11:00:42 AM
As I'm sure a knitter loves a new pretty skein of yarn, quilters love fabric. 
Most quilters collect fabric, and you could pick out a couple coordinating (or not) fat quarters at most fabric or quilt shops.  A fat quarter will run you 2-3 dollars on average. 
Different quilt books would always be a good gift as well as I love looking at them to get new ideas, or color combinations.   I like those published by a company called The Patchwork Place.
A subscription to a quilt magazine, a quick google search will pull up results though I like 'Love of Quilting'. 
Other sewing notions are always needed: glass headed pins, flat headed (or flower headed) pins, safety pins, tailor's chalk, water-dissolving fabric markers (I go through them like crazy!), different sizes of clear (Omnigrid) cutting rulers, small scissors, thread (I love the variegated machine quilting thread)....
A good quilt shop would have more suggestions as well...good luck!

ETA changed the name of the quilt book publishing company that I like...
106  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Re: Sublime Stitching Throw Pillow - Picture Now Displays! ( I hope...) on: January 10, 2005 09:50:02 AM

Love your throw pillow!  What a great idea.  I have just started using the Stitch-It Kit and amazed at the variety of items that can be embroidered.  I especially like the initial in the perfume bottle.  What kind of stitches did you use?

Similar to the HomeMadeSimple link but with the addition of flannel which also frays nicely, I recently followed (pretty closely) the instructions from this site using denim and flannel:
You will end up with something that looks like this:

Good Luck!
