1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Queen sized Log Cabin Quilt Finished! on: August 31, 2009 09:42:49 AM
I finally finished this quilt!!  


Log Cabin Quilt (I used the pattern from "Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts")
Fabrics:  Joel Dewberry--Almond Sparrows(front) & Orange Damask (backing) from the Aviary Line; Kona Cotton Solid (I don't remember exact color)
Batting: Warm & Natural
Machine Quilted (PITA) in spiral type squares around each block

Now, I'm making matching pillow cases of the Orange Damask print.  After this project is over, I'll be finishing up the Hexagon Quilt made of Erin McMorris "Wildwood" fabrics! YUM!!

Sorry the picture is bad, but I just snapped a quick shot.  

It looks extra wrinkly because I left it sitting in the dryer too long! lol

I finally finished my Heather Ross Mendocino quilt for my daughter that was born May 8th!  I can't wait to take a picture of her with it when she comes home!

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Ideas for 6.5 inch squares on: May 07, 2009 11:53:07 AM
I have a buttload of 6.5 inch squares of Heather Bailey Freshcut and I can't for the life of me decide what I want to do with them!  (I also have a few other freshcut fabrics that are scraps from yardage--they range from 2inch strips to fat quarters or slightly larger--that I could use to supplement.

I've thought about pinwheels but that seems kinda boring right now.  I also don't want to just put sashing between the squares since I JUST made a quilt like that. 

I need some creative help!

I'm thinking something like hexagons (not grandmothers flower garden type, but 60degree triangles), or dresden plates, or even cathedral windows.  I just can't decide!
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Thread color opinions wanted! on: May 01, 2009 04:12:09 PM
I'll be starting the quilting on my baby Mermaid quilt this weekend, and can't decide what color thread to quilt with.  I'm thinking white for the top, and pink that matches the solid on the backing?  Or should I go with white/white or pink/pink? 


5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Wrap & turn technique makes holes at the heel join in my socks? on: February 06, 2009 09:41:05 PM
I just finished a sock that was top down with short row heels.  I started a pattern for a toe up preemie sock using wrap and turns.  When I went to join the heel back into the rest of the sock, there are these HUGE (especially since the sock is so small...I promise a baby toe could fit through) holes where the heel joins back to the sock. 

What on earth did I do wrong?  (I'll add a picuture of the holes tomorrow)
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Anyone know what this technique is called? on: January 28, 2009 11:29:07 AM
It looks to me it was just scraps of different colored fabrics put together to create a "new" fabric, then cut into the shape they wanted. 

Does anyone know what this is called?

7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Baby Pouch Slings Help! on: January 20, 2009 07:51:41 AM
I know the basics of making a pouch sling, but I really love the Metrosupial Slings, which she is not selling anymore.  There seems to be a different in the Metrosupial slings with rails and basic sling patterns and the baby brain is not letting me wrap my head around the construction.  It looks like it's an easy step, but I just can NOT figure it out.  Any help would be appreciated!

Here's a link to Metrosupials Flickr set of slings:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/metrosupialdesigns/sets/72157603665885189/?page=2

I'm waiting on a sale to buy my batting (warm & natural).

I used 12 different fabrics from the Heather Ross Mendocino collection and Snow Kona Cotton.

9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / Basic Supplies I would need? on: January 06, 2009 10:53:50 AM
I'm a newbie to the embroidery game, and I want to embroider on some bibs and onesies, but don't want to go hog wild with the supplies. 

I'm having a really hard time figuring out what Stabilizers to use?   I need to be washable and soft on the baby's skin. 

Anyway, what basic supplies would I need to embroider the onesies and bibs?  Help?
10  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Design and Color Help on: December 13, 2008 05:57:29 PM
I'm trying to figure out what to make for future baby and am trying to use up fabric that I have in my stash and patterns.

I was thinking about making this "Snake Charmer" quilt:

But using the Color Wheel fabrics from this quilt I made previously:

Other changes I wanted to make was to switch some of the curves around and make it one continuous "snake" instead of 3 separate ones.   

Does this sound like a good idea?  I'm so indecisive lately I can't decide whether the colors will flow smoothly or not! 

Any thoughts?
