11  Tilting Four Patch in Quilting: Completed Projects by danynn on: November 09, 2013 06:54:44 AM
Some friends of my husband's were doing a fundraiser recently and I offered to donate a quilt as a raffle prize. I wanted to do something in fairly neutral colours as I didn't know who would win it and what their tastes/decor might be. I determined I had an absurb amount of brown and green fabrics, so I went with those as my primary colours and a cream as the background.

I used the Tilting Four Patch block from Quilter's Cache. Being lazy, and more importantly not owning a printer, I didn't print the triangle template and just kind of winged it. That probably made it take a little longer than it otherwise would have, but I got it done in about two weeks. I did very simple quilting, just lines through the squares.

Here's the quilt:

And the kitty-approved backing:

I received from Nolansmomster!

Here's the whole package - I love love love the fabrics she sent for the fat quarters. They're right up my alley colour-wise.

Here's a close-up of the adorable mini shoulder bag:

And the thread catcher bag:

13  Re: Quilt Block Swap Round 4 (Sign Ups Closed, Sendouts 9/30) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by danynn on: August 19, 2013 06:37:52 AM
Ok. Due to my poor math skills. My questionnaire and what is expected are confusing. Sorry.

Here's a pic of what I have in my head.

Six sets of 6.5 inch blocks. In random scrappy colours. Hope this clears things for groups one and three. Happy sewing. Wink

I just saw this and am confused...are we making six pairs of paint boxes? I had assumed three (because we're making three blocks for everyone). I'm totally not against making more (I definitely have the scraps to do it! Tongue), I just want to make sure I make the right amount.

So, both my parents are turning 65 within the next year, so I decided to make them a quilt as a joint gift. Because I'm insane, I decided it was going to be a queen-sized one-block wonder quilt. I've never made one of these before and wanted to try. It'll have four panels. I just finished the first one and needed to share it somewhere, so here you go:

Now on to the next three panels...

The baby quilt for my nephew is done - at least my part of it (the thread here explains what I mean by that).

17  Under the Sea baby quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by danynn on: May 02, 2013 06:21:09 AM
My brother and sister-in-law are expecting a boy in a few weeks, so my mom and I decided to make them a quilt. We went with an "under the sea" theme.

The plan was to share the load - I would piece the top and then my mom would quilt it and do the binding. Except she panicked at the idea of not being able to do straight-line quilting (she's a novice quilter) and made me do the quilting instead.

So here's the quilted quilt, missing the binding (she's still going to do that Cheesy).

And some close-ups of the different sections (sorry for the blurry crab, I was taking the picture with my cell phone and the screen is shot so I can't tell when I take pictures if they're not in focus).

18  Orca table runner in Quilting: Completed Projects by danynn on: April 18, 2013 06:36:31 AM
My parents were travelling out west last year and bought me a table runner kit for Christmas. I finally got around to putting it together. I'd never used a kit before and wasn't sure what to expect. Basically it came with all the fabric I needed and the applique was pre-traced, but otherwise it was just like making a normal quilt - I still had to cut everything to measure, cut out the applique and sew it on, piece the top, and do the actual quilting and binding.

Close-up of one orca (you can sort of see the quilting I did if you look closely at the outer border):

I received from kriSmith!

First up, the book she sent and the bookmark:

I hadn't heard of this book before I saw it on the lists, but it sounded intriguing - I can't wait to read it.

Then some wonderful steampunk-y magnets:

And last, a beautiful painting! She used pages from an old encyclopedia for the background and had hoped that some words would show through, but then decided that it looked better with a darker coat of paint.

It's just my style and I love it! Thanks so much, kriSmith!

Wulf, glad you liked everything! I was trying to decide what to line the box with and when I saw that fabric I knew it was right for you.  Cheesy  And yes, the water bottle carrier is insulated.

And now folks, prepared to be wowed! Wulf had mentioned painting and brass bits, so I was dying to know what he made. Well, I opened my package today and found this lovely box:

My first thought was that I could use it in my sewing room to hold small things like pins and bobbins and such. Well, it turns out Wulf had the same idea, because when I opened it I found a potpourri of sewing notions!

Just look at it all! Bobbins, hooks, a thimble, a thread ripper, thread, pins, more hooks, a needle book, scissors, and a tape measure camouflaged as a watch! And I LOVE the map lining in the boxes.

One last shot with everything open:

Thanks so much, Wulf, it's amazing!
