1  Merry Christmas Lap Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by stick on: August 23, 2011 07:14:56 PM
I am so pleased with my latest quilt.  It is a small 40x45 lap quilt.  This is the first time I have ever free motion quilted (around the letters in Merry Christmas) and appliqued (also all the letters).  I am in love with both now Smiley  I did a simple stitch in the ditch for the big borders.  The colors are a bit off in the first 2 pictures as the red is more like the color in the last picture.

The back is equally as cute!  I scored this Moda Ice Skating Elves for $3.99 a yd!

And I just love the binding with the backing...

Thanks for looking  Grin

2  Arrgg! Pirate Pouch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by stick on: August 13, 2011 01:27:27 PM
My little brother (in law) is going off to college and I wanted to make him something to remember me by.  So I whipped this up for him.  The pattern is called Snap Happy! by Stitchin' Sisters.  Super easy instructions and a fun, fast project!  It snaps closed thanks to 2 pieces of measuring tape in the top hem!  Too cool!

*Update*  I finished the quilting!

I am 5'11" so this is will be perfect for my mom to cover her legs while she watches TV.  I simply quilted each stack of coins with my walking foot.  I am in love with the yellow backing that I folded over for a self binding.

After finally getting tired of moving all these little coins, I decided to just get on it!  I just finished my Yellow Brick Road Stacked Coins Quilt Top!  Few!

It is a nice couch throw size (about 6 ft tall and 4.5 ft wide).  It is so sunny and bright.  It will be a birthday gift for my mom next month, I have to get to quilting now!

Here are pictures of the process:

These are the stacks of yellow rectangles (cut 4x2)  18 different prints.

1st strip.

All 6 strips, each containing 36 coins.

5  Guitar Strap and Accessories in Father's Day by stick on: June 19, 2009 09:01:17 AM
My dad plays bluegrass music and for Father's Day I thought I would make him a few accessories...

Here is a guitar strap, a luggage handle roll (this way he knows his guitar case from the others) and I ordered these beautiful hand carved guitar picks from magicwood on etsy.
Here is a picture of all the goodies!

7  UNC Rail Fence Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by stick on: April 05, 2009 08:26:28 PM
I am a 1st grade teacher and one of my students from last year had a students who's brother was diagnosed with leukemia in August.  When you have students you don't get to know just them but their family as well.  This is a wonderful family, and I think a lot of them.  

The school decided to put together a container to give to the family to let them know that we are thinking of them.  I decided I wanted to make him a little quilt.  He is a HUGE UNC fan and I had recently made another quilt for a friend and had some UNC fabric leftover...

This is what I came up with...

I used a Rail Fence pattern, each block was 9 inches x 9 inches.  I really love how it came out!

Here is the back, lots of UNC fabric!

I had a time with the binding... it is something I have never done before.  I bought Wrights Double Fold Bias Quilt Binding.  How in the world do you attach this stuff?  I watched a few tutorials for binding on line and none used pre-made quilt binding.

8  Craft Area Redo in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by stick on: March 20, 2009 09:38:33 PM

Here is what I have been up to today!  I redid the spare bedroom of my rental house (which means I cannot paint Angry).  I chose lime green and teal for my little craft space and the rest of this room.  I love it so much!  The containers and comforter are from Target.  The teal rectangle on the wall is a piece of corkboard that I wrapped in fabric and hung as an inspiration board.  Do you see the first block of my jar quilt?  Whew, that is a lot of work!

I have had the purple drawers for awhile and I would like to paint them white or green to match everything else.  Has anyone had any luck with the made for plastic spray paint?  Or another way to fix these?  Thanks!

I was finally able to meet up with my friend (she lives out of town) and she gave me the fabric for the back of the quilt.  Here it is!  I can't wait to get started quilting!

This is UNC fabric from Joann's.

Hey everyone!  I wanted to let you know that I got started on my Yellow Coin Quilt!  I have 18 different prints.  Here is the first strip.  I think I will double them, so that they will be 36 blocks long instead of 18.  I am really pleased!  Thank you for all the help!  Grin
