1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: 2017 QuiltAlong on: March 04, 2018 09:26:13 AM
Nice picture!

How's everyone doing in 2018? Q1 is always busy at work, so I haven't been crafting (or on Craftster, for that matter) since forever. I knit a simple scarf this week and then suddenly remembered I love crafting.

Plans for this year:

- BF has requested a quilt to take with him when he's away. I will probably go for a denim top, I expect it will be washed frequently. I'm thinking of making it a quillow so it's easy to carry around.

- I'm working on a faux cathedral window quilt from used denim. I love to use denim, especially used denim.

- I still haven't decided on that wedding quilt ... or the date  Cheesy

This is a really great, personal gift! I'm sure the entire family loved it on Christmas day.

We bought way too many brussels sprouts some time ago. Fiance put some in the freezer, didn't even trim and blanche them, just put the entire bag of sprouts in the freezer.

Defrosted them today, cut the sprouts into pieces, stir fried them with some garlic, onion and bell pepper. Added some black pepper and curry powder and threw in a can of kidney beans right before serving. I was afraid the sprouts would be snotty after being defrosted, but not at all! I'm not the biggest fan of sprouts (fiance loves them, that's why we eat them) but stir fry is my favourite way to prepare them.

They look amazing! If you are some day planning to actually start a business, these definitely look professional enough to sell.

Maybe the pictures don't show off your designs perfectly, but it does show how well they are suited for their purpose, plus your amazing aerial skills. I completely understand now why you need to have some parts of your body covered.

I love the one with the flames especially. The leotard itself seems like such a simple design, but the flame fabric and the way you incorporate the print into the design completely brings it to life and turns it into something special.

The finished potholders

This is just regular batting. I have always used regular batting and fabrics for potholders and oven mitts and it's never been a problem.

Christmas potholders, made mostly from stash. I am new to FMQ and wanted a simple project. I found this panelled quilting fabric in the 1/meter bin and I decided that would be the perfect project. The backing fabric has been in my stash for a long time, I used up all of my batting scraps. I have finished 3 of them completely now and working on another five. I spray basted them and folded the back over to the front as a binding.

I think I will keep a few of them for myself and then give a set to my friend, mother and grandmother.

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.

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.
