1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Camp day quilt! on: May 31, 2011 11:03:55 AM
I was asked a few months ago to make a quilt to be auctioned off on Tim Horton's Camp Day.
I was going to do traditional quilt squares with binding and all but it didn't feel very camp like to me. Camp is discovery, exploration, friendship, fun and memories! A rag quilt became my choice! Each square is out of my head... I have seen similar stuff but, nothing was from an exact pattern and I realized how awesome my quilt stash is lol
Many of the blocks have bead work and needlepoint writing. It took me about 50 hrs of hand stitching, beadwork and cutting and about 20 hrs on the machine and I loved every friggin' second of it! I am so happy quilting. I can't even explain the elation. I just feel content and satisfied when I am done.

We are hoping to get a few hundred bucks from the auction to send a kid to camp! And I did all of it for nothing. Just my way of paying back as my 2 oldest have had the privledge of attending the Tim Horton's Camp that is just north of us and they went for free due to donations from Camp Day. So All I ask is that if you live within 20 miles of a Tim's tomorrow, please go grab a cup of java and toss them a $5! Let em keep the change... that change will change a kids life Smiley

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Laptop rag quilt on: March 10, 2011 04:10:10 PM
Well, it started out as a rag quilt but was supposed to have a design and a be bigger. My youngest has autism and likes to use cut and sewn blocks as toilet paper (ya he is fun and my plumber LOVES him lol) and so what I started with and ended with was smaller lol
This was raffled off at my son's school on March 1 to raise money for their school trip. They raised about $1000 and the woman who won was thrilled. Smiley
Took me about 4 hours to cut it and 3 to sew it all together (Cutting fabric always freaks me out a little lol) And it frayed beautifully in the washing machine!!!! Smiley

Some line up issues on the plain side but other than that I was pretty happy with it and am working on my next one! Smiley

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Snowflake Applique on: November 07, 2010 04:05:40 PM
Hey all.
I am working on a simple, shades of blue and creams quilt for my son's class fundraiser. We are raffling it off for their year end trip and I had the "brilliant" idea of doing some snowflake appliques on the solid blue squares (about 8"x8") the other blocks are nine and four patches... The kids (boys) said they liked the quilts that looked "thrown together with different blocks" so that is what I am working on (pics to come promise!)
But, I am new to applique and was wondering if anyone had suggestions or ideas to make the snowflake blocks.
Help? Please? Smiley
