1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: One for the crow on: Today at 02:31:58 AM
Congrats! This has been chosen as a Featured Project! Smiley

Yay! Thanks Smiley

I know the saying from the Little House on the Prairie books I read as a kid, so I guess it's pretty old.
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: 2017 QuiltAlong on: Today at 02:27:27 AM
I wish I knew what to do with finished quilts. Maybe a whole quilt swap wouldn't be such a bad idea, except finishing a quilt normally takes me a year ;-) 

We have enough quilts for our own bed, our guest bed and a few smaller ones for on the sofa. I'm going to make us a wedding quilt and my current (faux cathedral windows used jeans) project is going to be for my fiance to take with him on the road. But after that I don't really know what to do with future projects. Maybe my friends should have more babies ...

your quilting is lovely! the reindeer one is my fave.

I actually wasn't sure about that one, because it turned out quite different from how I intended it to be, but I think they're all ok now. It's a lot of fun to make them, I'm planning on quilting a few more tonight.

I stitched this one for kittykill for the Prairie Schooler fall swap. She said she liked crows and I've been wanting to stitch this pattern for quite some time. It took pretty long to get to her, I was so afraid it got lost, but thankfully it did arrive after a week or 3. I adapted the colours and the pattern a little bit so it looked a bit more fall-themed.

The colours look pretty different irl, sadly I don't have a better one. I took the picture at night the evening before I sent it out and forgot to check if the picture was ok. The fabric is linen, the threads are Classic Colorworks. The chart is the Prairie schooler nr 192.

These are the first 3 (unfinished, straight from the sewing machine)

And the back:

Basically it's just doodling on fabric. I don't really start with a plan. They take me about 15 minutes each and I have 5 more that are spray basted and ready to quilt. I haven't done a lot of FMQ before, and I'm trying new patterns. They didn't all turn out as well as I thought they would, but all in all I'm quite happy with them. I can see the progress compared to my very first projects.

I used up a few bobbins and a spool of thread too! This is such a great stashbuster.

I'm starting a new, quick christmas project today! Our local sewing shop always has a bin of 1/meter quilting fabrics. It's hard to resist looking through that bin every time I need a zipper or a button. This week, I found a fabric with small christmas panels that are about 20 x 20 cm. I'm going to make potholders from them, a few for myself and the others as gifts. A couple of years ago I bought a yard of fairly neutral christmassy fabric from the same bin that I will use as a backing fabric. I will also be able to use up all my scraps of batting.

I haven't done a lot of FMQ, so this will be a good project to be a little more adventurous. In the worst case, I can just toss it out, I have enough material to make 25 potholders.
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Xmas quilted bed runner WIP.Embellishments? on: November 05, 2017 02:17:14 AM
I'm not sure what a bed runner is exactly ... is it a decorative thing? (ie, something you take off the bed before sleeping) In that case, I'm all for attaching bells! If it's actually going to be on your bed while youre sleeping, it might be a little annoying if they make a noise when you move around in bed at night.

When I was a kid, one christmas my mum made me a dress with all these little bells attached. I remember I loved it, and my mum knew where I was without having to look around for me.

Oooh, I love those fabrics! Especially the dalek one, but I love the globes too. I've been wanting to try stamping on fabric for some time, I should really try it some time soon.

I'm so glad it finally arrived! I was getting worried. I'm glad you like it Cheesy

I love that Santa too. I love those old fashioned Santa's and especially if they are carrying crafty gifts!

Now everyone has received everything, I will try to finish up and leave everyone feedback tonight.
