2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / New York quilt on: November 26, 2009 01:32:00 PM
This is the project that has been occupying all of my sewing time lately! Its a quilt for a friend of mine whos having her first baby. The pattern is based off of a historical image of mapping New York City (the last picture). Shes a historian studying the US coast survey, and this is one of the images from that project (you can read a little bit about it here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._National_Geodetic_Survey, if youre interested). I wanted to do something that would represent her, and also remind the baby that it was, at least for a few months, an east coast baby (shes since moved to the west coast). Some of the quilt is machine pieced and some is appliqued, and then it was machine quilted to look a bit like contour lines on a relief map.

I love this dress too, but I've also been intimidated by the resizing thing.  Maybe if someone does manage to resize it well they'd be willing to share the pattern with all us slightly larger ladies? Smiley

On the sizing, my experience with the Burda pattern sizing is that it's best to pretty much ignore any US size conversions and just take your measurements. I've had a lot more luck getting things that fit that way.  Sewing sizes don't seem to have much relationship to store bought clothes sizes anyway, as I usually sew a 16-18 in US pattern sizes, and wear a 10-12 in store bought stuff.

Hey Avian Flight, did you get the cool grass and silverware set from somewhere in Ithaca?  Is it possible that there's an asian store snuggled away somewhere that I don't know about?

Okay guys, I posted more pics and some more detailed notes on how I put the slippers together.  Hope you find it useful!

Okay, I finally got a chance to upload these photos this afternoon, and here's the cool stuff that starlawill sent me in my swap package!

First, a cute little soup thermos with a felt cozy that totally matches my laptop lunchbox!:

Next, an awesome hand-painted bento journal for keeping recipes and stuff.  Much cooler than the old lab notebook I currently use as a recipe book:

Some embroidered napkins and a placemat cloth.  These are totally my favorite.  She hand-dyed the blue napkins and embroidered cute clouds on them, and then the placemat has a double helix down the side! Perfect for me, since I'm very into genetics:

And finally, a ton of goodies from the asian store near her, which are not fully represented because I started eating them right away Smiley  The lychee gummies are delicious, but my absolute fave are the super lemon candies... I can't even bring myself to open them because the package is so cool:

Thanks starlawill!  This was such an awesome swap!
