1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: Fabric Curlers *w/tutorial link **UPDATED pics of outcome p.1 ***AFTER WORK p.5 on: August 31, 2011 10:18:53 AM
After all this time that I have been on Craftster and I am just not finding this. My seven year old (who thinks she is 17) LOVES having her hair rolled, so I am gonna make her some of these! I can't wait!

@danni - thanks so much for that link!  I love that method.  I always made my own squares like they do here http://www.waukinvnetcorp.com/myquiltgenie/mgq_hst.php, but this new way seems like it's much faster.

I have found that this is easier done if the fabric has LOTS of starch this will make working with the bias a TON easier!

danni42683 what is the HST method?

I love your quilt, great color choice!

There are several ways of making this quilt.

This is the strip pieced method http://beesquarefabrics.blogspot.com/2009/03/how-to-make-zig-zag-quilt-without.html
This is the HST method http://aquiltisnice.blogspot.com/2008/09/zig-zag-quilt-kit-tutorial.html
however if you wanted to you could cut and sew strips to make your HST like this http://myquilter.blogspot.com/2010/03/speedy-12-square-triangles-trick.html instead of cutting squares and then sewing two seams then cutting them apart.

It looks amazing! Was it very hard? The pattern looks complicated.

No actually I used the HST method and it wasn't hard at all. Chain piecing is my best friend so it went together pretty quick from start to finish took about 10 or 12 hours, I started on a Sunday and washed it for the second time Tuesday. There are other methods to making one that are even easier than using HST.

Thanks for the comments.

I LOVE this pattern and I am going to make a couple more of them. I say this is a baby quilt but acutally its more the size of a youth quilt/adult lap quilt size. Its about 48x60 but I wanted something that was going to last him a while instead of just being big enough to cover him while he really shouldn't have a blanket anyways (while in a crib).

I made this for my soon to be born nephew. He is the first child to either of my siblings and I can not wait to spoil him as much as my sister spoils my kids. I have been sewing for him non-stop for a couple weeks now. This is the quilt that I made for him.....
Its not really that wonky I am just not a good photographer.
The backing I fell in love with it is the ultra cuddle fabric from Joann's.

Thanks for looking.

For all you multi tasking quilting knitters or knitting quilters out there I found the perfect fabric. These are just a few from the new Michael Miller line called Knitty Gritty. The rest of the link can be found here http://www.michaelmillerfabrics.com/MMF/Swatch2.cfm?Gnam=Knitty%20Gritty

I have never had the problem with fabric for a quilt but my husbands grandma got our daughter several shirts that had a sticker down the front of them, they were on clearance so I am going to assume they had been there for AWHILE! when it came time for me to wash the shirts I pulled the stickers off and there was a HUGE mess left behind, I didn't want to put it in the washer because I figured the lent from the fabric would collect on the glue. I grabbed a cotton ball and the rubbing alcohol and went to work. It got 100% of the sticky off and did not damage the fabric or the design!

To get the extra little bits of paper off could you take a piece of tape wrap it around your fingers and touch the paper, then just lift it off?
I know its not the same but I had a quilt sand. sitting on my dresser forgot all about it, brought a new cat into the house and he decided that my quilt was going to be his new bed I didn't think nothing of it. It didn't even register to me that it was my quilt he was laying on! The quilt was RED and BLACK the cat, well he is white and buff(khaki) I wrapped masking tape around my hand and started touching the quilt it ALL came off within ten minutes! lol
