Those look wonderful!  I can't believe that is your first time doing that?  Your free-motion stitches look great.  What kind of machine do you use?
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / quilted cowboy pillow on: June 02, 2010 05:55:47 PM

    This pillow was a gift for my Dad, who loves cowboy movies.  The sunset fabrics are at slightly different angles, and the sun, land, and cowboy are raw edge appliqued.  Then I just stitched in the ditch to quilt it.  My own pattern. Smiley  My Dad loves it and has it in this chair where he sits and watches westerns. Smiley

Thanks for all the comments.  You all should really give it a shot yourselves.  It's fun. Smiley

I did the stippling.  I just have a little bernette by Bernina, and I cram quilts under there and have at them.

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Quilted throw with applique flowers on: April 11, 2010 05:15:20 PM

I have been experimenting with raw edge applique.  I found the website for "don't look now" quilts and was inspired.  These flowers and the bird are adapted from a free pattern on that website.  I used steam-a-seam and raw edge applique for the flowers and then did free motion quilting for the stems of the flowers.  It is hard to see in the pictures, but I did free motion stippling all over with some cloud patterns mixed in.

It wasn't too hard, I would encourage you all to try it yourself.

Quilt fearlessly!!!

I love this sooooo much!!! 
I want to try to make this for my little girl when she gets here (I'm expecting). Smiley  Questions:  Did you attach the yoyos by hand?  How would you wash this???

That's so pretty. What's the name of the letters you used? I like the sunflowers.

The letters are modified from the letters on pg 21 of the book "a Big Collection of Alphabets in Cross Stitch".  I'm pretty sure I got it at Joann's.  There were supposed to be beehives and tons more bees, so I changed that.  And I might have moved the placement of a few of the flowers too.

all such a beautifully coordinated package with the background fabric and the frame. 

Sewing a border on to a cross stitch piece is easy peasy!  I just used my regular machine, and a regular needle.  cut 4 strips of fabric.  Sew one on each side, then sew the top and bottom (including those side pieces you just added), just like for a quilt.  I saw it in a fancy-pants cross stitch store and thought if they can do it so can I!  Cheesy

I love this cross stitch!
The heart between the two blasters is perfectly hilarious! 

For this challenge I was considering making a deathstar for my hubby's 30th Bday.  The starwars gangsta rap cracks me up, when the little storm troopers are rapping "We got death star, we got death star".  In fact, I may still make that cross stitch!

btw, The battle on Hoth is my fav scene of the "holy trilogy", so I guess that puts me in the Empire camp. Smiley

I love your monkeys!!!  I really like the one with the beard.  It kinds reminds me of that Mr T sock monkey that was done for the sock monkey challenge a while ago.    But the camo sock is really great.  Did you had sew the beard to his face?

My Mom always made us sock monkeys as kids (they are cheap toys!), and 3 years ago I made her a purple one for Mothers Day.  She said that you know your life has come full circle when your kids make you sock monkeys. Smiley
