11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Pinwheel Pillow on: August 04, 2011 12:19:59 AM
Oh how I love a good quilted pillow! All the fun of quilting in a quick, easy format! I made this last year for a swap and while looking through photos I realized that I hadn't posted it! So here it is, my off-kilter pinwheel pillow!

Here is an in progress shot, this is the point where I thought, this is getting christmassy... And so i added the brown polka-dot applique to cut down on the red and add some more texture!

The off-kilter pinwheel blocks are so simple too! I cut 5 inch squares and then laid a white and a colored square on top of one another and then made a slightly angled cut through both of them, then paired them with their color and angle opposite and sewed them together!

here it is with no color distortion

Clock kit 5.99
Aqua paint .59
Loteria Card (1/52 of a 3.00 pack)

Less than 10 bucks for a pretty stinking cute little clock to put on my fridge!
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Helix Cowl with Noro on: January 09, 2011 03:12:56 PM
I saw the link to this pattern on knit and tonic and knew i wanted to make it. This is the second one i've made. Its made with Noro Aya, colors 8 and 10 I believe. I also added a crocheted slightly scalloped edging to make the edges look nicer.

this is the right side although both sides look really good!

reverse side

on me! I love it!

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Who loves mittens? Oh thats right.... EVERYBODY! on: December 23, 2009 08:07:52 PM
So a couple of years ago i went on a kick to try and make all of my female family members socks, but i had a lot of lonely socks that never got their mate, so this year i decided to make my goal attainable and only 2 of my sisters would get mittens and the other would get a kit, because she's a knitter too!

So first up are the Chevron Love mittens!

this picture is much truer to the colors than the one below it

I absolutely loved knitting these, I love fair isle, i love all the colors, i love the yarn, everything!

And next up are the End of May Mittens!

the image on the left is the palm side of the mitten

16  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Pink Honey on: August 21, 2009 10:58:52 PM
This quilt was the first one I've ever made from a kit and I'm absolutely thrilled with it! All of the fabrics are from Amy Butler's Daisy Chain line except for the cream and green roses on the back! My local quilt shop Honey Bee made up the pattern and put together the fabrics for these kits for the Houston Quilt Show last year and I bought one of the leftovers with a gift card. The quilt was machine quilted by me on a longarm I rent time on. I used a super thin 80/20 cotton batting. The finished dimensions are 70 x 84.

I'm not usually into kits because to me the fun part of a quilt is picking out all of the fabrics and creating my own pattern, but these fabrics are great and the pattern that was created for them just worked so great! I really think if everyone knew how easy and satisfying quilting can be everyone in the world would be making quilts! So without any more blabbing on from me, here are the pictures!

big front view, i couldn't quite hold the whole thing up straight!

here is the back, i'm in lovvve with the green rose fabric which is the only fabric NOT by amy butler, its heather bailey pop garden

and a picture of the quilt on the machine! You can see my "feathered curls" quilting pattern at the bottom of the pic!

18  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / On the fence on: December 30, 2008 09:58:59 PM
This is a quilt i made for my mom for christmas. I used a moda jelly roll, the fabric line is allspice. I modified the traditional rail fence idea by breaking the squares up with a neutral sashing. I am really happy with how it came out, this is my second quilt that i've gotten to do on a longarm quilting machine.

the back

edited to add some pictures of the quilt on the long arm machine. These will show the fabrics a little bit better since they are more close up.

19  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / big zig for my baby sis on: November 29, 2008 06:57:49 PM
So this is Denyse Schmidts Big Zig pattern from her quilting book. I modified it a bit to include some patterned fabric from Heather Ross's Lightning Bugs and other Mysteries. The solids are Kona Cottons. I made this for my youngest sister. Her 18th birthday was on thanksgiving this year and i was very excited to give this to her, i just love how it came out.

So here is the quilt top

and here is the quilt loaded up on the longarm. This is the very first quilt i have done on a long arm machine. I took a training class and quilted it here duck soup quilts]

here are some pics, pre binding, right off the longarm. I created the quilting pattern free hand on the fly. i'm pretty happy with how it came out!

and here it is done and washed!
