1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Second Quilt [For Baby Niece] on: August 02, 2013 05:20:48 AM
Following the first quilt I made, here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422558.0#axzz2aoSl6YE2, I gave another a go. This time for my boyfriend's baby niece. We worked on it together and he picked the design.

The fabrics are thrifted duvet covers and the backing is a fleece blanket. Hand enbroidered name tag.

The first two pics are Instagrammed, the last shows the colour better Smiley

Thanks guys! If you could see the close ups you'd see it isn't that great but I was pleased for a first go Smiley As my boyfriend said when I was getting frustrated with lines not matching exactly right etc, it's handmade so stfu it doesnt have to be perfect Smiley I still have a TON of the fabric left too.

Made my first quilt for my cousin's baby girl.

Backed with just a fleece blanket. I embroidered one corner with baby's name and date of birth.

Most of the fabric is reclaimed from charity shop bought bedding. Some of my corners didn't quite line up but I'm happy with how it turned out. She's having a little boy now so I'm working on a scrappy blue/green stacked coin quilt.

Made with freezer paper for the mister for Christmas. He loves it!

For the boyfriend's nephew. It wasn't meant to have the white bits, the stencil warped slightly, but I actually prefer it this way.

I'm sure everyone has seen the JD bottle-turned-soap-dispenser flying around the interwebz. I saw it and decided I wanted to make my boyfriend one for Christmas.

I stole requested an empty JD bottle from our local pub. It was fairly larger than the example soap dispenser on the internet!

Several bottles of soap later, with several pump lids... and none fit! I ended up with a crap load of soap at home. I the found a perfectly fitting silver pump from an empty soap dispenser (one you buy to fill with whatever you're using - from Tesco if any of you want to retry this). I painted this black (spray paint would have been best, I used nail polish as it was the only thing I had to hand, but worked fine), attached some plastic tubing (from a novelty straw/glasses set from a 1 shop).

Bob's you're uncle.

Unfortunately he at first thought it was just JD with a pump lid. Unfortunately for him, no. Fortunate for his liver though.

9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Brother Walking Foot Help on: March 15, 2011 03:36:17 AM
I find myself needing a little guidance from your good selves.  I have a Brother XL3600U1 & I'm starting to work on my first quilt. I need a walking foot, but I have found a few different versions & I'm unsure which I need. My manual isn't much help.

I've found the following...

F033N Walking Foot (7mm Width)
F034N Walking Woot (5mm Width)

And then

F062 Open Toe Walking Foot

Do the different mm matter? Is it in reference to the shank? How do I know which I need? The Open Toe foot has no measurement, how do I know if it's suitable?

Help, I'm lost!

ETA - Ohh I think I've identified it as the F034N.  I'm still unsure on the F062 though.

The jacket River is wearing was tracked down by the guys over at DWCosplay on Livejournal (http://community.livejournal.com/dw_cosplay seriously, if you're even considering any DW cosplay, go there first). Hopefully these pics will help you track one down yourself, or at least help in construction.

This is the jacket. It is a double collar one. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270694812049
