Thank you so much for your great compliments everyone. I am beaming! It's wonderful to hear great things about a project I spent so much time planning and making.
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Stacked Coins Quilt on: January 04, 2009 02:16:48 PM
When I started laying out fabrics for this quilt, my husband made some comment that included the word "ugly".

Even he admits now he was wrong. So very, very wrong. The pattern is based on the stacked coins quilt from Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts. The fabrics came from just about everywhere- the remnant bin, other quilter's scraps, a vintage pillowcase. I've been saving up every orange fabric I could find for several months now.

Several blog posts about the whole process at http://trinasdoings.blogspot.com/2009/01/grand-unveiling.html

Thanks so much for all your compliments.

To answer a couple of questions, these are my second and third attempts at free motion quilts respectively. The first was just two pieces of spare fabric with some scrap batting sandwiched in between. That's my number one recommendation- try it on something you can just throw away. That first scrap started out pretty dang ugly but by the end I kind of had the hang of it. Then I did the doll quilt so I could just focus on the mechanics and the rhythm of it without worrying about moving lots of fabric around. Then I got brave and did the crib quilt. I am by no means an expert. I broke my thread a lot. A lot. But, I am pretty proud that I never broke a needle.

In an effort to use up some of my scraps and learn how to free motion quilt, I made these-

It's crib size log cabin quilt and a doll sized stack of coins quilt.

I am really proud of how they turned out.

For some reason I couldn't get all my pictures to upload. There are more pictures (including closeups of the larger quilt and the backings of both) and more details on my blog- http://trinasdoings.blogspot.com/2008/09/bright-baby-quilt-set.html
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Stacked Wire Cuff on: April 27, 2008 08:02:14 PM
I saw this how to: http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/cr_beading/article/0,2025,DIY_13745_3471400,00.html and had to make one. Right away. Nothing could stop me. Not even a lack of 16 gauge wire. So I made it with the 20 gauge wire I had.

I did minimize the swirlies at the ends. In the bad picture on the website they seem to take over the whole bracelet. I find them much less distracting this way.

I love it. I love it so much that I want to start right over and make another one or five. I am definately making a trip to the craft store for 16 gauge wire. The thinner wire bent everytime I yanked on it a little. Plus, its not really sturdy enough to stay on my wrist all day. I also want to try more contrast between the color and sizes of the beads.

I'm looking for some great quilting blogs to add to my daily reading. Right now I'm really loving crazymomquilts.blogspot.com. Anyone have any other suggestions?
