 Shocked I am so impressed with that quilt!! The colours are so vivid and the pattern really simple and efficient! I've decided to make children quilts for a charity, but have never made any before. I think this one is so fabulous I must start right away!
Did you use a piecing pattern? And when you cut the fabric, do the edges have to follow the fabric's grain?

And I revamped it, and made it look like this (yes, I did get this idea from the last bargain hunter swap!):

I hope my partner will post the shopping list I sent, as that is also saved on my other computer.  I know I got the case for $1.50.  It was my exciting find.  Wink
Shocked  Shocked Revamped it is a very weak word for what you've done! It is in perfect-immaculate-fabulous condition now! And all so coordinated with the rest I'm just so amazed at what people can find for peanuts!!!

If you know where a glass artist works,  they may have a kiln and you could melt it! Or, if you could very carefullly break it (safety gloggles, gloves etc etc) you could use the pieces as mosaic pieces for a frame or something?
Lovely blue

30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Fake rabbits (lots pics) on: September 28, 2007 09:57:48 AM
I've been asked by the Amateur Theatre Company I belong to to make... two fake dead rabbits for the next play. Huh  They have to look as real as possible, apparently they are very important in the play. Smiley

I found some pretty good fake rabbit fur, and some velvet for the head and feet.
I had to make a "real size body" first, then wrap it all in the fur. Just about every thing is handstitched, it took me ages! Here is rabbit one half done:

The heads are carved in polystyrene balls, and I put a piece of table protector plastic in the ears.

I painted the inside of the ears and the white around the eyes. I need to find real horse hair for the whiskers though, I don'tlike my plastic there.
The last pictures were taken with the flash, so the fur looks really shiny.

Rabbit 1 was used in the rehearsal yesterday, but it is too light, so I am in the process of emptying the body and stuffing it with dry rice bags instead!

Wonder what the rabbits get up to in the play (Perfect Pitch by John Godber). I just love how soft the fur is.  Smiley
