1  Robot Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by sarahdipity on: January 03, 2010 07:41:28 PM
After about 4 month of effort I managed to finish the quilt for my fiance in time for Christmas.  I was happy to have it done, especially since it is my first fully complete quilt.  All that sneaking around was tiring.

Here's the end result:  If you want the long story of the ups and downs of this quilt read on after the first two pictures!

I started with these fabrics:

Then I cut loads of squares:

I did a lot of searching for a neat simple quilt pattern.  I ended up using a revised nine-patch quilt style that I discovered on etsy (not my store). http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=28165923

I'd been hoping to do some robot applique.  However, at the end of October my sewing machine broke.  I tried my hand at some hand applique but it really didn't work.  

So I scratched my plan for applique and just did the repeated blocks.  

I got my quilt fixed and put the whole thing together.  Then realized my sewing machine is so old I'm not sure I can find a walking foot.  I have a Singer 734 which is older than I am.  So I decided I'd just tie the quilt instead.  I used extra fabric that was intended for the applique robots to make a colorful back.  My mom came into town and she helped me tie the quilt and make the binding and sew it on.  We stayed up until 3am the night before we had to go wedding dress shopping.  I was exhausted!

 The end result was a very happy guy!

More pictures, and larger versions of these can be found on my Flickr page in the crafts section: http://www.flickr.com/photos/48969942@N00/sets/72157623070375010/

Here is the absolutely amazing house elf Geeber made for me. 

My pictures cannot show how amazing she is.  I decided she is a free house elf and her name is Tillie.

Geeber also enclosed some lovely fabric.  Maybe I will have to learn how to sew teddy bears.

She also enclosed a book showing all of the steps that went into making Tillie.  She put a heart inside her!

She's absolutely adorable.  I'm so impressed by her, you did an amazing job.  I should have gotten better pictures of Dobby so I could post a lesson's learned in dolls and bears.  I hope you like him as much as I like Tillie.  He's not as perfect as I would have liked and my sewing machine started acting up right after I finished the body (that's why the clothes are hand sewn).

I made this bag for the Photographer's swap.  It's meant to be a camera bag while not looking like one.

I was really happy with how well it turned out.  And I learned how to make an adjustable strap.  This was only the 2nd bag I'd ever made and it was not the disaster that the first one was.

I recieved from girlunderglass on Thursday and have finally gotten around to taking pictures.  Poor girlunderglass has been having a rough time due to an illness in her family so we agreed that she could send a few more bought things. 

So, onto the goods.

This is everything sittin' all together.

This is the funky fantastic bag she found.  It's really neat. 

This is a picture frame she made.  It's really pretty.  Unfortunately it didn't fare too well in the mail.  But never fear I have wood glue and shall make it good as new!  I love the colors.

A picture of her 'zine (because I had no idea what one was).  I really liked it.  And a little photobox that has different patterns/ images on each side.

These are the pictgures.  I am especially fond of the cute cute kittens.  If I'd known that she worked at the Humane Society I would have sent her pictures of our former shelter kitties.  I also really like the picture of girlunderglass making a face.  *laugh*

5  Dolls - gifts for friends in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by sarahdipity on: February 27, 2006 10:41:54 PM
I made these dolls for my friends from college.  Each doll is based on their personality and has clothes made to match their taste.  They call them their voodoo dolls.  Although, they're really not that scary, just scarily cute.
