I KNOW I saw a tut for it. it had a "pattern" and everything. I lost the link somewhere along the way and i've searched and searched and search through crafters but I can't find it. Does anyone have any ideas? I remember it used to shirts to make a dress...please help!!

Thank you everyone for your extremely kind comments. This piece was very special to me and I'm glad other people think it's special too. It's pretty simple compared to some of the other quilt's I've seen on Craftster but it hold a very special place in my heart. So thanks again for all the kind word of encouragement too!

The one card is made from felt and material scraps and transperency. As for the floating card....Yes it was a glass table, I tried really hard not to get my feet in the pic but it just kept happening so I gave up  Roll Eyes

Forgive the back story but I feel it's necessary in order to understand how important this project is. If you don't really care just skip the words and go straight to the pics.

I met my friend Joe in a hospital setting. We were both there getting treatment for self-injury. Joe entered the hospital the day after I did and we were the same age. He was really depressed because his girlfriend had left him and he felt he had no reason to live. We spent Christmas together in the hospital. He "lived" right down the hall from me. On New Years Eve Joe committed suicide. I spent a year and a half of my life blaming myself for his death. He had said some strange things the night before and I was convinced if I had told a staff member at the hospital about them he would still be alive. This quilt is about finding the closure I desperately need. I made it in his memory and I'm donating it is his honor to To Write Love On Her Arms, a nonprofit that seeks to raise awareness about self-injury, depression and suicide. But mostly this quilt is about pain and hope. I'll be sending it out tomorrow but I couldn't make something like this and not share it with the craftster community. SO...Enough words...Pictures!

This is the whole quilt(my dad is 6'8" and he is holding it...for a better size reference)

This is a closer image of it

A close up on the pinwheel(those things are tricky!!)

And the 5 Hand embroidered squares

I think it turned out really well considering I've never done anything besides a simple block quilt for a baby before. I hate doing binding though. Its the bane of my existence. The binding didn't turn out so well but hey nobody's perfect. I took forever to cut out all the little triangles. But I'm glad it's done and I can send it along.

for the melting crayons i went to the dollar store and bought some cheap glasses and used them like a double boiler. i threw them away when i was done with them. no fumes for that one.
i'm lucky that my parents own and rent out cottages to tourists(we live on an island with a beach so we get loads of them). i use the ovens in the cottages when theyre not rented out. but i'm sure you could melt beads on a grill...lay a cookie sheet across it so theres a flat bottom and melt away. i would just keep a closer eye on it since its not really a regulated temp. just to be careful not to burn anything...

I'm just glad the melted crayons and balloons got there in one piece. i was really nervous that the postpeople would break it.  Roll Eyes
