So pretty!  I think yours is the first quilt of a pixelated character I've seen where the fabrics aren't just solid colors.  With the pretty colors and sparkly beads, this quilt is fit for a princess.  Smiley  Great job with all those little squares!

Haha, awesome!   Cheesy  You are an excellent sister for bringing her something so thoughtful and lighthearted.

I love the way the batiks work with the windmill pattern.  I don't know much about quilting designs, but I was thinking you could quilt around the border of each windmill.  Freehand quilting, like freegrrl2000 suggested, would also be nice to break up the straight lines.

Great job lining up all of the points and angles.

Your quilt looks great so far!  Good job!

You have at least two options.  You can place the t-shirts and the backing fleece right sides together, sew the edges together leaving a gap, and flip it right-side-out (the pillow case method kitshbitch suggested).  You can also place the t-shirts and the backing fleece wrong sides together with batting between them, and quilt the layers together.  With this option, you sew binding (a narrow strip of fabric) on the edges to cover the raw edges up.

I did the pillow case method for my first quilt and tied it about every foot.  I think it's better to quilt it because the layers don't shift as much.  I put batting in my first quilt, and it has really shifted and bunched over the years.

That's beautiful!  I love the colors.  Did you quilt it yourself?

Great job on the quilt!  Your fiance is very lucky to have this quilt, and you are lucky to have a fiance that helps you quilt.   Smiley

Wow!  I love the way the beaded edge of the veil lines up with the beading on the waist!

I made this tote for my sister's birthday.  I'm so pleased with it!   Cheesy  I used this tutorial by gloriana, but didn't follow it exactly.

I put a pocket between the straps on both sides of the bag.  You can see it in this action shot.

I'm still trying to figure out what kind of bag to make for my other sister, whose birthday is only three days after this sister's birthday...

This is the first tote I've ever made.  I wish I had realized years ago that I could do this!  I know what my sisters are getting for their birthdays.  Smiley

30  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Stencil Kit on: January 13, 2007 02:25:04 PM
For Christmas, I made my husband a kit with everything to start stenciling, and included a little instruction book.

freezer paper
sponge brushes
acrylic paints
fabric medium
x-acto knife
stenciling tutorial book (link)

I've never stenciled before, so I used t0xicity and deathcabforcody's craftster tutorials for the content of the book.  If you print the second page of the document onto the back of the first page, the little pages of the book line up.  Then you cut out the two pieces, and staple the book together at the fold.  Here's a picture of the book because that probably didn't make sense...

I wrapped the freezer paper separately, and had him open it first.  He had a confused look on his face, but said thank you anyway.  So polite!  Tongue
