1  My 1st Quilt - RagQuilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by greenfishes73 on: January 06, 2007 02:39:18 PM
I am SO proud of this.  It's a rag quilt - but I am so happy I chose this easier (and more forgiving) route for my first major attempt. 

Here is a shot of the whole quilt:

and. . a close up of one of the mini squares (four mini squares together to make one square):

Thanks for checking it out!

PS - I did wash it with 3 sheets of color catcher -as recommended to me by a friend) - and all of the colors stayed put.  No bleeding occured.

2  My 2nd Boppy Cover - added photos of BACK in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by greenfishes73 on: August 11, 2006 08:24:19 AM
I'm feeling really good about my 2nd project on my sewing machine.  I did this yesterday while watching TV - and am pretty happy with the outcome. 

I'm thinking that these would be pretty easy to make for friends - like if I picked up a Boppy from Craigslist or something - made a new cover - voila  - gift.  Ya think?

Here's where I posted the first one I did last month:


OK  - Here's a pic of the back velcro closure - kinda see that I have pulled back the right side - so you can also see the GENIUS I am who finished the seams!!  Smiley

Also - in this pic - try to see how I tapered the piping into the seam on the inside curve.

Thanks for checking it out!  Smiley

3  Boppy Cover in Completed Projects by greenfishes73 on: July 28, 2006 05:19:54 AM
If I can figure out how to post these damn pictures!  Smiley  My new niece was born TWO days ago - and to get ready - I finally dug out my sewing machine that I bought like 3 years ago!  It's been sitting there waiting for me to finish cutting quilt squares - but it finally served a purpose -

MY FIRST project -

Boppy cover for niece Alice:

The actual cover was good - according to the Simplicity pattern -

On the actual Boppy Pillow - it kind of puckers?  Anyway - I'm happy with it - and ready to do another so baby Alice will have a cover even when one's in the wash!
