11  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: 2017 QuiltAlong on: November 06, 2017 07:57:01 AM
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.
13  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.

18  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Winter 2017 Craft List on: October 28, 2017 03:12:48 PM
I'm creating a list as well.

Fiance and myself: matching flannel PJ pants (this fabric: https://img0.etsystatic.com/151/0/11077012/il_fullxfull.1156537540_nmld.jpg  ) The pants are sewed up, I went to buy cord for the drawstring this afternoon. Put a drawstring into one pair, still need to do the other pair. After that, the only thing that's left to do is hemming them.

Close crafty friend we celebrate Christmas with: bought her some grumpy cat flannel (she's a huge fan) so she can craft something for herself. Didn't make her PJ pants from the fabric as I know she already has grumpy cat PJ pants. I've also found the perfect pattern to stitch for her on Etsy. I need to buy that pattern and stitch it for her.

When in the shop today I also found a nice Christmas panel quilting fabric in the 1/meter corner. I bought a meter of it. The design and size are perfect for potholders. I think I have a fairly neutral, christmassy backing fabric lying around somewhere too and some scraps of batting.  I might be able to make several of them tomorrow. Not sure who I'm going to give it to yet, but it's always nice to have a stack of small and quick DIY gifts on hand.

Everyone has officially sent out now! Just waiting for Helena Puck's and my swap packages to arrive safely.

I'm getting a bit worried about mine, it's been on its way for some time now. I know kittykill lives far away from Europe, but I don't think it's ever taken this long for a package to arrive.
