1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Wavy Daisy Love Quilt on: January 14, 2011 03:32:30 PM
I made this quilt for the newborn daughter of good friends.  The patchwork is actually one print that is quilted around to make it look like blocks.  The circles were interfaced and then appliqued onto the green strip.  This was a fairly simple piece, overall, but I LOVE it.

This gives you an idea of the overall size--- on a full size bed.

A close-up of the fabrics and quilting.  I used a fuschia pink and off-white thread for quilting.  Meander quilting on the green panel, a spiral on the circles, around the patchwork, in stripes on the plaid border, and meander and around the flowers on the purple border.

Cosi, Nina's three year old sister, immediately dragged the quilt into her room.  So cute!

C & C welcome!  Thanks!

4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The Avett Brothers, Emotionalism Hoodie on: October 25, 2009 07:59:32 PM
One of my besties introduced me to the Avett Brothers last year, and I am completely hooked! (If you haven't heard of them, you should check them out; they're amazing!)  She has the Emotionalism album cover tattooed on her back, but it is very rarely seen... so I decided to embroider the symbol and the band name and stick it on a hoodie for her to wear as a birthday gift.  I think it came out really well and she loved it!  (or at least she told me she did!)

The bird symbol is embroidered with satin stitch and backstitch.  The Avett Brothers patch is in backstitch.  There is also a heart embroidered on the front but I don't have a pic.

C&C welcome!  And go check out The Avett Brothers!!
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Save the Date! on: September 08, 2009 07:40:58 PM
My fiance designed our Save the Dates with some ideas I gave him.  Love them!  I had to show them off!

The photo of us (heavily photoshopped) was taken in Collioure, France this summer when he asked me to marry him.

Thanks, everyone.  I truly appreciate the kind words.    Grin    Feel free to make your own-- I'd love to see them!

I used different fonts from my word program for the letters (enlarged via freehand) and freehanded the flowers/bugs/dragonflies on Abbi's letters after looking at her bedding.  I used google images from the internet for the animals on Carter's. 

Thanks again.
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Baby Name Painting(s) on: January 24, 2008 03:37:30 PM
I decided to paint letters for my cousins' new babies nurseries...  but I decided I didn't want to buy the ready-made letters to modify.  I bought small packs of stretched canvases (4'x6') and then hot-glued ribbon on the back for them to hang.

I painted the letters with acrylics to match the bedding/decor of the nursery, based on photos and registries.

For my cousin Grant and Ashleigh's baby Carter:

And for my cousin Amy and Bryan's baby Abbi:

I'm fairly pleased with how they turned out, and both sets are hanging in their respective nursery.  Thanks for looking.

These are all onesies, hand-embroidered without stabilizer, except for the monster-- he is an applique with embroidered eyes that will be stretched on a frame as art for a little guy's room.
(The turquoise cat is obviously not embroidered; it just happened to be in that picture)

That is so stinking cute!  Is the strap attached or is that your.. ahem... bra strap?
