21  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Help me pick a stitch pattern on: July 31, 2007 09:57:19 PM
So, I finished my flying geese top, but now I'm not sure what kind of quilting I should do over the entire piece.  Here are some of the options I'm thinking of:


I'm not a great free-hand quilter, so as much as I like the look of stipple quilting, it's way beyond my skill level!  Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!   Grin

I made this quilt for my nephew - scroll down on my blog to see more pictures.


23  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / I scored some free fabric! on: June 29, 2007 09:12:16 AM
A friend of a friend was destashing and gave me a gigantic garbage bag full of fabrics!  There are some really cute calicos & florals, some stripes & gingham and also some funkier geometric fabrics.  I already know I can use the calicos in a quilt for my neice (there's even a nice light yellow calico that's several yards so I'll probably use it as backing fabric.) 

I'm so excited!  I washed it all last night (two large loads!!!), and spend a couple hours ironing it and didn't even get half way through.

I have some pictures on my blog:  www.rebel-workinprogress.blogspot.com

Now that I have a ton of fabric, I might be interested in swapping some of it - how do we do that here... is there a specific forum or thread?

I finished my little boy quilt and posted finished pictures on my blog. 


I'm going to try to post some of the pictures here, but they might be too large.

Or just lame?

I don't know why but I just fell in love with this fabric, it's just so cool!  But I'm just not sure I'm brave enough to wear it outside.  What do you think?

I used McCalls pattern 4306. The pattern is super easy, so I'll probably make it again in a less funky fabric.   
26  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / How many quilts do you have? on: April 30, 2007 10:14:23 AM
So far I only have one quilt for me, and I made a quilt for a friend's baby.  I have several more ideas for quilts... but I debate about making more for other people or for myself.  So... how many quilts have you made, and how many were for you vs. how many were for other people?
27  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Starting a Flying Geese quilt on: April 25, 2007 09:09:06 AM
So I just started cutting out fabric for a flying geese quilt.  I'm using a pattern from "Time to Quilt" as the basis... but changing the orientation, making it longer, and adding a border.

This is only my second attempt at a bed-sized quilt and I'm vaguely remembering telling myself after the first one "never again"!  LOL... but I guess I'm hooked.  It's a bit of a challenge though... my first quilt was a rail fence - so I had to cut out hundreds of peices... but they were all the same size 1 1/2" x 3 1/2".  For this one, I've got rectangles, squares, half square triangles and quarter square triangles.  It's starting to drive me nuts, and I've only just started!!

Hopefully the end result will be worth it.  Wish me luck!
28  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Black & blue flowery bag. on: July 07, 2006 10:00:35 AM
Here is a bag I made a little while ago. Butterick B3799, view A.  The handles ended up being just an inch shorter than what I would have liked (can carry it like a shoulder bag - but not if I'm wearing a jacket).  The pattern was pretty easy to use, but it recommends using a padding along with the sew-in interfacing.  The padding has been coming out through the fabric & pilling - really annoying.  I think it would have just as much structure without the padding.... maybe just use an extra layer of interfacing.  

29  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / another 9 patch baby quilt on: July 06, 2006 04:40:51 PM
Here is a baby quilt I made this year.  I like the way it turned out.   The colored pieces are left over fabric from my Rail-fence quilt, in fact the stripes on the border were pieces that I'd already cut out for that project.  The cream background has a subtle pattern & purple trim is what I used for the backing.

30  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My first quilt 9-patch on: December 05, 2005 10:25:36 AM
This is the very first quilt I made... I started it when my sister was pregnant but didn't finish it until my neice was like 4.  It's extremely 'rustic' Wink  and I was embarrased to give it away, so I use it as a lap blanket.  It was a start!
