11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: two macho baby quilts for twin boys on: September 06, 2007 08:54:23 AM
Thanks for the comments! Yes, quilting in circles is hard. I just took a deep breath, kept the free-motion slow and steady, and kept telling myself "the babies aren't going to notice the imperfections!"
12  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / two macho baby quilts for twin boys on: September 04, 2007 12:46:01 PM
Just finished two quilts for two impending boys. It was my first free-motion machine quilting experience and it was HARD but it got easier! I guess I'm [gulp] ready to free-motion a grownup size quilt now.

Here's a quilt for the more kicky, modern baby:

The solid blue side is flannel. I normally don't use poly batting; but this time, it was GREAT to make those circles really puffy and 3D.

Here's the other for the mini-Steve McQueen:

The hot rod side is flannel.

This is an awesome bringing together of groovy/contemporary and traditional feel. Love it! Looks like lots of work with all the curves. Color me impressed.

Nice work, you ambitious crafter you! I had to do some baby quilts before I got up the nerve to "go big".

Love it, love the colors. Fantabulous

This is great.. I LOVE merging science and fiber art.. I've got all sorts of ideas on that.. but I'm not a scientist! The good news is I work in a Physics Department. I just need to find a student or professor who'd be willing to provide me with some images or data that would translate to a quilt.

Bravo -- this is AWESOME! Keep up the good crafty work.
17  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Safety Pin Question on: September 12, 2006 11:54:44 AM
I literally have scars on my hands from those big, mean, straight quilting pins. The safety pins are a godsend. I find the layers can shift a bit unless I am diligent about starting from the middle, smoothing as I go, and using LOTS of pins. It's a tedious step, but once it's done, the home stretch is ON! Always very exciting, going from the piecing to the quilting stages.

This is wonderful! What is this pattern? I love.

You don't happen to know the fabric details do you?  for the asian one anyway

It's a Robert Kaufman print from the Sakura line: http://www.robertkaufman.com/fabrics/sakura/
It looks like maybe this print is discontinued, but there are other yummy prints in this line (TKK-5956-143 in Coral is fabulous.. the website doesn't do it justice)

Hope this helps!

Why, thanks for the kind words.

liebschien, I think you're right.. this pattern is bullet proof.. easy to make, and (with the right fabrics) modern enough for my tastes.

kwugirl, I used embroidery to sign my work. You can see upclose shots here:

and here:

Just a split stitch. But you can use a fabric pen, I'm sure. Looking forward to seeing your first quilt!
