I think you did a splendid job of combining fabrics. It is very festive! The pinked (zig zag) edges are a wonderful addition, too.

Thanks!  Something about pinked edges charms me and it's not just that it's faster than turning them right-side out which is plenty charming.

I think it looks fabulous!!  And I really like your party idea of 200 years of combined experience Grin  

Although there isn't a Birthday and Anniversary section on the Occasions and Holidays board, there is a Party Planning section Smiley.

Thanks!  It seemed like a good way to have a disparate bunch of folks all together at once.  And as a way to work through a surprisingly abundant stash of party plates, cups and napkins and not be worried about them matching.

It didn't seem that this qualified as planning, does it?  I still want to lobby for a Birthday & Anniversaries section as I've had several little projects that seem to best fit in such.  [nag, nag]  Wink

Smiley I love it! It is so nice to have special items to bring out again and again. It inspires me to make something for my middle sons, high school graduation this summer. I want to make a scrapbook but now I may make some decorations too!

Thank you!  I thought not only would it help build a tradition, but it would be both economical and ecological.  I was hoping to have time to make the dogs some collar covers out of the remaining fabric so they'd match the party, but I just couldn't swing it.

Last night we threw a 200 years Combined Experience party because this year our house turns 100, The ManFlesh's mom turns 60 (in a couple weeks) and I turned [gulp] 40 yesterday.  I wanted to have festive decorations, but not go with a specific them since we were celebrating such a variety of things.  I made this hoping I could use it for many birthdays, anniversaries and other celebrations in the future.  We added orange balloons and orange and white crepe streamers.

I could have used some quilters' skills when trying to put together 10 different fabrics.  While not completely successful, I feel okay about it for my first time.  Each fabric had at least 2 colors from at least 2 other fabrics, but I think I had some issues with pattern scale and dark/vs light backgrounds.  I did spend less money than buying a pre-assembled set of fat quarters, though.  I received some compliments from party-goers, so that was extra nice.

I've been on a bias tape making kick for a year (or more) and think this might be the cutest I've made so far; well, this wasn't cut on the bias, but it's double-fold tape.

 Huh Until there is a Birthdays & Anniversary category on the Occasions and Holidays board (hint, hint, nag, nag) it seems this is the place for this project.  If it's better somewhere else, please let me know about moving it.

EVERYTHING is better with bacon.  EVERYTHING.

I love this so, so much.

Thanks!  Even bacon is better with more bacon!

Wowzers!  Underneath that great hair cut you're a unicorn, aren't you?  Everything you make is like magic rainbows of awesome.

As usual, you've flabbergasted me.  I've no words, only repeated audible sighs.  Siiiiiigh.

[approaches on knees] I only hope that I am worthy enough to view the gallery of such terribly important craftsters' creations. [bows head; backs away on knees with eyes downcast]

Wow!  This looks like a great swap!  I'm going to let it eat away at my resolve to not add any projects to my list for awhile before deciding.  Hmmmm.

I'm so glad you decided to share this wonderful piece here on craftster, too.  It touches something beyond people's mind and eyes.

Mine is super old...probably 10-15 years old, and you have to run things through 3 times to get them clean...and that is after rinsing everything off before you put it in.

Plus, I like washing dishes, so I'm not really sad about not using the dish washer. 

Well that makes sense, then. 

I've heard about people like that on TLC, but I didn't think they were real!   Kiss  Wink
