1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Foxy Baby Quilt on: June 21, 2016 12:49:59 PM
I was trying to use stash as much as I could for this quilt.  Batting and backing had to be purchased.  The fox in the middle is from Elizabeth Hartman's fancy fox pattern

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Scrappy graduation quilt on: May 20, 2016 12:29:02 PM
I had purchased a bunch of 5in squares in variously blues and greys from a person from Instagram and intended to eventually make a quilt for a friend... most likely christmas.  Well she was finishing up her degree and her BF decided to have a surprise party for her, so I decided a week out was a good time to try this, lol.  I also added some fabrics from my stash and ordered the backing

Top before quilting

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Mr Wiggles baby quilt on: April 11, 2016 12:32:32 PM
I'm a big fan of Tara McPherson's art and I saw that she was coming to town for a pop up show.  I also noticed that she was pregnant, so I thought I might be able to turn one of her designs into a quilt   I went with "Mr Wiggles" as it was a simple design.  I did not, however get a great photo of it before I gifted it.  One sort of crooked one my husband took as we walked to the gallery and one taked from Tara McPherson's Instagram.

I tried to do wiggly lines for quilting, on solid black.  I backed it with black dot minky.... and even on a small scale, I hate sewing minky, it always shifts.
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Hedgehog Mini Quilt on: April 11, 2016 12:25:39 PM
This is the larger version of Hazel the Hedgehog from Elizabeth Hartman.  I made if for a swap on Instagram.  My partner likes navy, so that's what I went with.  The pattern was pretty easy to follow and turned out very cute
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / 3 baby quilts on: February 29, 2016 12:45:57 PM
2 of my co-workers are pregnant and due in March, so I wanted to make each of them a baby quilt.  Even with colorcatchers, the red one bled all over the white one.  I got a lot of the color lifted off both, but there were still splotches that made it ungiftable.  There was a lot of crying and then I let my dog have it and he was thrilled as he loves blankets.

Back to the drawing board I made the blue/grey/yellow one.

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Tshirt Quilt on: February 10, 2016 06:30:28 AM
This is the second t-shirt quilt I've made.  While it went slightly better than the first one (Used minky for the backing - *Shutters*) I still don't think I'd make another one, it was a pain.

This is for my oldest stepdaughter out of shirts from High School and college that had been put in the donate pile over the years and I kept snagging them out.  I interfaced each one, then cut to size and sewed to a square of batting.  I think assembled the top, added another thin layer of batting and then flannel for the back.  The sewing is definitely wonky as there were spots my machine did not want to sew through.  However it is done, it's cuddly and most importantly, isn't taking up space in my craft area anymore.
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Ravenclaw themed baby quilt on: October 27, 2014 09:38:13 AM
This is for a family friend who isn't finding out the gender, but is doing the nursery in Harry Potter theme, and her house of choice is Ravenclaw.  I picked a mix of blue and sliver fabrics for the front.  Though it didn't photograph well, the black has swirls.  The backing is from Spoonflower and has the names of spells on it

8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Anyone need tshirt scraps? on: June 17, 2014 08:00:42 AM
I have a bunch of tshirt backs leftover from a tshirt blanket - can anyone use them?  I hate to throw them in the trash.  If someone wanted to help with shipping costs I would be happy to give them to you.  You can message me
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Elastic bobbin - Shirring on: January 22, 2014 11:59:08 AM
I was wondering, does anyone know if you can get pre-wound bobbins of elastic?  I've tried shirring before and it hasn't worked and i think its' because Im not good at winding the bobbin with the elastic thread.  I would adore if you can get bobbins already made.

I've google searched but come up with nothing, I didn't know if maybe someone knew someplace I wasn't looking

10  Category Challenges / Quilting: Challenge Entries / Quilt Your Happiness: Rainbow on: October 21, 2013 06:39:30 PM
Im a fan of Heather Ross's fabric lines and have a few pieces from other lines.  When I saw the Briar Rose collection this summer and the layout for this quilt - I knew I had to have.  This was the first time I had ordered an entire fabric line.  I pre-ordered it as a birthday present to myself.

The colors, prints and layout just make me feel happy and smile
