1  Snail's Trail Mini Quilt in CHALLENGE 118 ENTRIES by noelle on: April 10, 2017 06:40:52 PM

I made this tiny quilt for craftylittlemonkey in the recent Mini Quilt Swap. She had a number of octopi on her Pinterest board, which is how I picked the snail's trail for the block, and she said earth tones were her favorite.

It's about 14" in diameter. This picture shows the scale a little better.

The tiny black pieces are 3/4" squares.

The back kept making me hungry. It seriously looked like a pizza until I put the hanging loops on  Grin

I received an amazing, glorious, swirly-whirly Tardis quilt from Averia!!

It's about 50 x 80", which is perfect for watching Doctor Who on the couch. I have some friends who will be dying to pry this out of my hands, but no way mwahaha.
She actually sent a note apologizing for how big it is... pfft! It's beautiful, and I can't believe you were worried I wouldn't like it.

I LOVE IT! Thank you so much  Kiss

Thanks, IsikkahJai!
I already have the peg leg (which is funny) but I'm hoping it's temporary.

craftylittlemonkey sent me a beautiful paper-pieced feather quilt in my favorite colors!

She also sent some sweet extras, including a valentine's day card, fabric tissue-holder, and some inchie house die-cuts.
Thank you so much! It's all just lovely. And amazing job on your first quilt!!

So are these like making the pyramid pouches, but instead of putting in a zipper you stuff them and sew them up?

I've never made a pyramid pouch, but it sounds the same!

My bad!  Can I still love him?

haha! absolutely!
i probably didn't do a good job of making the red-panda-ness obvious. they're tricksy  Cheesy

i did just finish a fox, though (plus polar bear & blue jay). my camera is being weird so all i have are bad phone pics for now...

6  Animal Pyramid Ornaments in Winter Holidays by noelle on: December 18, 2016 11:08:30 AM
Here are some stuffed ornaments I made the last few years. A couple were for my niece & nephew, and the rest were for the Sweat Shoppe Ornament swap R6.
I have layouts/templates if anyone is interested.

Linen & broadcloth with black velvet noses.
The goldfish was by far the most complex.

I'm going to try a bluejay, red fox & polar bear next.

i received from irid3sc3nt today! thank you!
she crafted a moss hut for my overgrown theme. her note says, "It's half weeds, half soil. Inside is a fire surrounded with unnamed things in glass jars on the shelving. Who lives here?"

just look at all the great details... the fire is dimensional, too. it's hard to see in the photo.

here is a picture with it properly assembled:
