1  Quickie Graffiti Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Amazon_warrior on: August 04, 2018 02:00:53 PM
I'm going to a friend's wedding next weekend - what they mostly want is contributions to their honeymoon fund, but I thought it might be nice to make them a lil quilted something, so I used freezer-paper templates of their first initials to create a small graffiti "art" quilt for them:



I found the trickiest thing was deciding what designs to quilt - I haven't had much practice with zen doodles.  Clearly I should do more random scribbling!



(I'm not home right now, but I'll add a label when I get back.)

2  Wedding Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Amazon_warrior on: August 04, 2018 01:53:51 PM
This has been a loooooooong time in the making.  I started planning it shortly before my sister's wedding way back in 2011, but had no quilting experience and no one to show me how to start, so it got put on hold for a couple of years until I came back to Wales and joined a quilting group.  It's a Disappearing Nine-Patch pattern, the hearts seemed to take forever to piece, then it took me ages to get it basted and find the courage to quilt it.  I couldn't have managed it if I hadn't been able to borrow a friend's drop-in sewing cabinet while dog-sitting for her!

In its rightful place on my sister's bed:


Closer view of the quilting:


Strip of "spare" hearts on the back:

3  Ty Cyw, Ty Cyw, tum-ti tum-ti tum-ti something-something TY CYW! in Quilting: Completed Projects by Amazon_warrior on: September 02, 2017 09:33:11 AM
Ty Cyw (Cyw's House) is a Welsh-language kids program that my niece is really into - it's a bunch of random cartoon animals and token human Gareth all living in a house shaped like an egg.  (I suck at Welsh, despite having the most ridiculously Welsh name.)  It's her third birthday in a couple of days, so I made her a Cyw pillow (Cyw is the name of the chicken):



I used a sort of stretchy white velvety stuff for the body, plus some weird red metallicy stuff for the wattle and comb and some gold spandex for the beak and legs.  And sequins for the freckles.  (Why does a chicken have freckles?  WHY?!)


The back is some cuddly pink and yellow flannel:


For reference, the original image is this:

Sharing pics of the fabrics I received from AIMR and craftADDchick:


I cannot begin to express how much I love the silver birch print!  THANK YOU!


A really wonderful array of prints and textures, and the flamingo and lobsters gave me a giggle, thank you!  Cheesy


Also, general huge THANK YOU to all my partners for humouring my odd and quite specific request.  You're all awesome!  Smiley

Averia, are you doing aqua and teal, too? Or more traditional blues?

Either way, my scrap bins are ready!  XD



I've also got a bin for teals, but I think they're a bit too green.  Smiley  Just as well I have a pic of what I sent last time so I can choose some different ones this time!

10  Fabric Thread Pot in Completed Projects by Amazon_warrior on: May 31, 2017 09:35:06 AM
This probably goes here?  I've been meaning to make something like this for ages, to sit near when I'm sewing and hold odd scrappy thread ends.





Literally threw it together just now with some of the first fabric I grabbed hold of.  If I made another, I'd add a bit of stabiliser or similar to firm it up; in this case I made do with fairly dense quilting.
