1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Graffiti quilt for cancer (photo fat) on: June 30, 2010 10:04:43 AM
Hi all! After many trials and tribulations keeping me from starting and then finishing this quilt, it is finally complete! In an earlier post I was looking for ideas for a fundraiser for a child in our community with a brain tumor ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350930.0 ). I was hoping to make many small things, but decided to go with one big thing and a few small things (perhaps I will post the small things some other time). Anywho, all fabrics including the batting and backing, are from my stash. It is quilted in matching orange thread around each section and approx 2" away from the black flange (omg, the flange was so much fun!) around the entire quilt. The backing is the same orange as the binding, I believe it was either red rooster or blank... or something. Anywho, I hope all you seasoned quilters can appreciate it as much as I do.

Now, how much should I have them price it for? I guess I should mention it is toddler/small throw size.

In progress:

Here is a link to the lil boy's website if anyone would like to learn more, or perhaps donate.

2  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Child Cancer Fundraiser Ideas? on: June 16, 2010 09:43:06 AM
There is a little guy in our community, age 2, with cancer. He has had 5 surgeries I believe so far. Various people are holding a fundraiser sale and I am needing ideas on quick things to sew up for the sale that people will actually buy. One person is making hand puppets. I have the idea to make little boy ties, but I need more variety in what I can donate to them to sell. I know you craftsters are full of ideas, so please send 'em my way. Links to tutorials are also welcome.

My fianc's band along with other bands are holding a benefit show for this cause as well. I just love how when someone is in need, our communities seem to pull thru.

3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Drapery Lining on: June 15, 2010 07:01:13 PM
I have a garbage bag full of various drapery lining remnants. Anywhere from Rain no Stain, Thermosuede, and Blackout. I have pieces that are under a yard, some are well over, and some are even 2 or so. Besides the obvious use for this fabric, what else can be done with it? I have tried my good pal Google, but came up with nothing. My mind is fried from working 2 jobs and cannot come up with a single thing. So, what would you use it for?

 Grin I don't know what I would do without Craftster. I was at an all time low in my life (failed engagment at the tender age of 18) and finding this site gave me a new direction and purpose in life. I now sew/craft for myself, others, and more importantly 4 different charities. I guess this site not only enriched my life, but allowed me to enrich the life of others.

6  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: NCIS swap (SIGN UP 21/3/10 - 30-3/10 ; SEND OUTS 1/5/10) on: March 21, 2010 10:26:08 AM
Although I won't be participating in this swap (I'd love to), I've got a suggestion for the erm... "farting" issue. While wandering around Walgreens last week they had self-inflatable whoopie cushions. They are a tad smaller than the original W.C. so they could easily be stuffed inside a handmade Bert. I think they were something silly priced like 3 for $3.50 or something. Hope this is useful to someone.  Grin

I'm in! Organizing my sewing room currently. This will be even more of a challenge for me 'cause I work at a fabric store. Wish me luck!

Very nice! He looks good in it! Great job. I have those same sheets/bedspread and I too was going to do something different with them.  Grin

I found the fabric at my local Hancock Fabrics store.  One of the gals there she saw it and had to have it so she had it ordered in.

Grin You did a wonderful job with my favorite fabric! It's not very often I get to see a customer's FOs.

p.s. this post totally reminded me that I need to renew my licence, I still have the vertical one from when i was 18...I'm almost 23 now. Roll Eyes
