11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Sunbonnet Sue Quilt on: February 13, 2007 03:18:11 PM
I made this baby quilt as a gift for an old family friend.  The Sunbonnet Sues are appliquéd and embroidered by hand.  The piecing and quilting are done by machine.  Enjoy!

If you are interested, you can read more about this quilt on my blog.
12  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Pink and Green Lap Quilt on: January 31, 2007 06:53:15 PM
This was a custom quilt for a one-year-old girl, with the expectation that she would enjoy it as she grew older (so, not too baby-ish).  It's  a lap-sized quilt and features free motion quilting done by me on my regular, old sewing machine.

13  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Tilted Squares Baby Quilt on: January 23, 2007 03:40:44 PM
This was a custom made baby quilt.  I'm especially proud of the quilting design.  I love the way the curves complement the sharp angles of the piecing.

14  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Interfacing For T-shirt Quilt on: January 21, 2007 04:49:03 PM
I apologize if this has been asked before, but I keep getting error messages when I try to do a search.

I'm preparing to make a quilt using t-shirts for some of the squares.  I've seen several posts about t-shirt quilts and links to tutorials and I understand that you need to use interfacing on the back of the t-shirts.  However, I'm not sure which interfacing is the best to use.  Obviously, it should not be stretchy and should only have glue on one side, but that still leaves lots of options. 

Can someone who has made a t-shirt quilt give me a specific recommendation about what kind of interfacing to use?  I would really appreciate it.
15  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Quilt Challenge #1: Yo-Yo Flower Wall Hanging on: January 19, 2007 04:20:36 PM
I made this wall hanging to go in a friend's guest bathroom.  It is 10" by 12".  The piecing and quilting are done by machine, while the appliqué, embroidery, and yo-yos are done by hand.  If you wish, you can read more about the process of making this quilt here.

16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My First Messenger Bag on: January 03, 2007 04:24:57 PM

I made this messenger bag for my sister-in-law. She is currently starting her second year of volunteer service at Nazareth Farm - a Catholic community that provides home repair in rural West Virginia to those who need it and can't afford it (I am really oversimplifying their mission. Click on the link if you want to read more). I figured that she could use a sturdy bag for work and decided to jazz it up with the Farm's logo.

The logo was made with freezer paper and fabric paint.  I made up the pattern for the bag as I went along and it came out pretty well, although it was a little funky around the flap.  I didn't go crazy with the pockets.  Too many pockets means too many opportunities to mess it up Wink.

I hope you like it!

17  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Coordinating Baby Jumpers on: December 27, 2006 06:47:31 PM
I made the jumper on the left for my 16-month-old goddaughter. The jumper on the right if for her brand new baby sister. This was my first real foray into making clothes. I decided to use Simplicity patterns (4383 and 9911) in the hope that they were actually simple.  Turns out they were. Wheee!

18  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Stitchette Christmas Pillow on: December 26, 2006 06:46:50 AM
After finally finishing all of my Christmas presents to other people, I decided to treat myself and make something just for me!

The embroidery is a free pattern from Wee Wonderfuls.
19  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Purse Supplies - Help! on: December 18, 2006 10:32:00 AM
I've hit up all my local craft/fabric stores and can't find any 2" triglides or d-rings.  I don't want to buy them in bulk - this is for personal, not professional use and I just don't see myself making 20 bags anytime soon.

So, my question is, where do you all get your supplies from?  I would appreciate any tips.
20  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / New Baby Wall Hanging on: December 12, 2006 05:45:29 PM
Hello all - just thought I'd share some pictures of a wall hanging I made for a new baby friend of mine Wink.  The applique and embroidery are done by hand and the piecing and quilting are done by machine.  I briefly thought about quilting it by hand, since I already put so much hand work into it, but gave that up in favor of actually finishing the project in a timely manner.
