1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: charm square quilt on: February 26, 2008 02:50:26 PM
Hi!  I have the same charm pack (and another in the mail) and I wasn't sure what to do with it either.  I came across this blog post about a disappearing 9 patch quilt (http://snippetsofaquilter.blogspot.com/2007/10/charm-square-quilt.html). 

I have posted a couple pictures of how Shangri-la looks on my blog.

Thanks, guys!  I wouldn't necessarily have used such bright colors for a top, but for a skirt you can get away with more unusual choices.  My next projects are more ambitious--I'm currently hand-sewing some squares for a quilt, and I'm also planning on making a bedspread.  We'll see if anything actually gets done...Smiley

I made this skirt in just a few hours over several days.  Originally the pattern made a skirt that was longer than this, but I don't like really long skirts, so I altered it to suit my needs (which was a good idea because it turned out I wouldn't have had enough fabric!).

I have been frustrated with sewing lately, particularly when sewing tops--nothing ever seems to fit properly--and this project was just so satisfying.  The skirt is really comfortable and the colors are perfect for spring and summer.

That is a beautiful quilt!  I love the colors, and the fabric you used for the back is so perfect.

i like it! is the fabric stretchy??? i just bought some non-stretchy fabric i liked and i want to make a top out of it but i couldn't find a top pattern i liked for non-stretchy fabric. phew. why do i talk like a crazy person? anyways, i think your shirt looks snazzy

The fabric isn't stretchy--its plain old cotton.  The pattern that I used had several different views, including a couple with sleeves.  Normally I don't like all of the views but I thought they did a pretty good job with this one (Butterick 4549, I think), cause I will definitely use it again and I plan on making the other views as well.

The sewing book that I have (from the '60s) mentions a special foot for invisible zippers, but my sewing machine didn't come with one.  I guess what you have to do, according to the '60s book, is iron the zipper flat so that you can get the presser foot as close as possible to the zipper teeth, if that makes sense.  I decided not to do that for some reason, so my invisible zipper isn't as invisible as it could be.  I looked at a top I have that uses an invisible zipper correctly and I'm pretty sure that they must have ironed it.

Here are your pictures!

Hey!  The pictures!  How did you get them to show up?  I just uploaded them to the Craftster photo page and was going to post them, but they were already here.  Ahh, technology.
Anyway, I'm glad they're here now, and thanks for the comments.

I tried to post pictures but for some reason they didn't show up
I made this top using Butterick B4549.  I used some fabric that I got from my aunt.  I did an invisible zipper, except that it was the first time I'd done an invisible zipper and I'm pretty sure I didn't do it right.  Oh well, I'm not that concerned.  All in all, the project probably took me about 6 hours but those 6 hours were stretched out over like 2 months.
I think that it could be a little bit tighter.  I'm used to wearing tight shirts so it's weird to see myself in a loose one, but at this point I'm not going to go back and change it.
