61  Need suggestions for new "beginner" project. in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by halblingefrau on: March 15, 2006 12:28:46 AM
When I was young I made a few nine-patch and "freestyle" quilts (freestyle being just sewed a bunch of crap together into a squarish shape), and i want to get back into it.  I picked out a relatively simple design that is a little more interesting than the nine patch.  I wanted to do a star pattern or something more intricate, but i'm really bad with sewing diagonals and curves, so I thought this would be a nice transition project.  I layed it out on photoshop.  It looks kinda boring to me though.  Anyone have suggestions?  My room has purple, green, and blue in it.  I like to switch the feeling from beach-y and relaxed to purple/rich/luxurious.  Also, I was thinking of leaving the center square blank and doing a sencil, but I'm not sure how that would look.

62  Watercolor Box in Completed Projects by halblingefrau on: October 04, 2005 07:26:08 PM
I made the box for a friend's birthday.  I watercolored it, applying a couple of coats.  Then I decoupaged some of my friend's favorite artwork on it.  And finally, I found these neat metal charms at Michaels and glued them on.  Let me know what you think!
