1  Re: LAP QUILT 5 FALL GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by Marmish on: August 08, 2015 04:53:36 AM

I FINALLY finished this swap quilt at a recent retreat.  I added some blocks to make it bigger, backed it with minkee, and machine stitched the binding. It's FMQ in a loopy pattern.

2  Another Color Wheel Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Marmish on: April 09, 2011 04:17:30 PM
From Last Minute Patchwork + Gifts.  I reduced the pattern by about 2/3rds and machine appliqued the wheel on Quilters Only Parchment.  Backed with pink Minky and bound in Kona - charcoal, I think.  This was a gift for our friends' baby, Eleanor.

3  City Lot quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Marmish on: February 05, 2011 01:35:19 PM
I finally finished the binding on this quilt.  The pattern is called City Lot from the City Quilts book.  I love it so much I am physically unable to give it away as intended and have to make a replacement.  Shocked Cheesy

Fabricfriend asked me to posts pics of the quilt I sent her.

whole quilt

close ups

I made bias tape, then hand appliqued the knots, added borders, machine stippled around the knots and outlined the borders, then machine attached the binding.

I received from fabricfriend the other day but REFUSED to let myself open it until her quilt was done. Opened my little box after dinner to find THIS:

Sorry, pics are a little crapola.  I'll try to take better ones and edit later.  I LOVE it!  It's felt? so soft and fuzzy and full of polka dots.  And cool buttons.  And the pinked edges on the binding.  And it's all squares and circles.  Aaaaahhhhhh.  I really do love it.  Thanks fabricfriend.  Your's is going in the mail tomorrow a.m.

Nothing like your partner threatening to send to light a fire!   Cheesy
We got the sewing room put back together after having new flooring installed, so I got to work in my beautiful new space yesterday and got a lot accomplished.

Here's what the floor looks like:

I use a metal silverware/napkin caddy for scissors, rotary cutters, pens and pencils, small rulers, needle books and other small misc. hand tools needed for sewing.  I'll post a pic of mine later, but this is the idea:

I got mine at Joann in the summer clearance a few years ago.  Cheap, cheap.  I also have a roll of paper hanging on a curtain rod, similar to the tape on a dowel theory, it's always there and out of the way.  I just use my acrylic ruler to tear off a piece as needed.

9  Triangles, triangles in Quilting: Completed Projects by Marmish on: March 07, 2010 07:02:11 PM
Done.  Finally. I used two charm packs and Quilters Only.  Backing from a LQS.  This is definitely in the better-done-than-perfect category, but I'm keeping it for me and am happy enough with it.  I chain pieced the squares in between working on a more challenging project.  It was much needed brainless sewing.  I still haven't washed it, so it should get a bit more crinkly.
