Scrap Quilt Class pic

posted by: love2sew on 11.18.2007 at 08:24 pm in Quilting Forum

I am really enjoying your class and like the different blocks we are making. A few years ago I made this scrap quilt...the little blocks are 3-4". It didn't seem to lower my stash much

RE: Want to share Christmas crafting ideas? (Follow-Up #4)

posted by: pudge on 10.26.2007 at 10:33 am in Crafts and Decorations Forum

I do mostly floral work and dabble in some other things. This year I read about bending an artificial greenery wreath in half which then creates an arch. Once it's bent in two, you twist a few of the wired stems together to hold the bend in place. Because it doubles the greenery, it makes a cheap looking wreath look really full. Here's one I've done (I've got some craft shows coming up, so am working on a few more).

No Sew Placemats

posted by: sew_self-taught on 09.28.2007 at 04:23 pm in Quilting Forum

I had this idea a while back. And since I was going to the Laundromat for my rag quilt I took along denim I had clipped for placemats. Fun and easy!! I have thought about embellishing them with red rick-rack or ribbon, but Im questioning the shrink differences between an embellishment verses the denim. Anyway, now just picture on the table some fried chicken, some baked beans, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, apple pie, well you get my drift. I wish I had these over the summer.

My quilt for the Church Ladies - pics

posted by: mary_c on 09.10.2007 at 05:51 pm in Quilting Forum

A month or so I posted about I quilt I quilted for my Dad's Church Ladies. It was a disaster! The twenty-year old invisible (to me) markings showed up as fluorescent yellow after washing! The fabrics bled (caught by color catchers) and faded badly.

I decided to make them another quilt for the craft show in November. It will either be sold at a silent auction or raffled. I hope they raffle it. Many people who would buy a few raffle tickets and hope, just won't plunk down a bunch of money for a quilt.

Either way, I'm really pleased with it. If it's a silent auction, I'm going to have my mother bid for me so it doesn't go for cheap. I'd absolutely love to have it back.

Here it is:

I used my "Swirlz" template and baby pink thread, and then I used up all my scraps for the binding.

Looking for Love....

I wanted to do a maze quilt with an original theme. The guy fish in the lower right corner needs to get to the girl fish in the center. There are creatures blocking his path, but there is one unobstructed way there.

I spy birthday quilt

posted by: kelly4905 on 02.26.2007 at 05:24 pm in Quilting Forum

Posting a picture of the I Spy quilt made for Leith's first birthday. It's quite wonky because I was *not* careful about cutting (only have one ruler and the cutting mat), the ribbon letters are crooked, and all the quilting was done freehand. I call it the egregious quilt. LOL But no quilt police have cited me yet!

I Spy a Birthday Girl

Used flannel in the middle. Quilted swirls in the blocks and cables in the horizontal and outer sashes. Also swirls around the letters. The black border is just meandering.

The back is black, with a bright pink label -- just used a permanent marker to make the label. Used black bobbin thread, except over the label, switched it to pink, like the top, so it wouldn't overpower the label -- you can see the pink swirl on the right side of the label and the black 'cable' on the bottom.

I Spy label

I think it turned out all right. It's fun and funky, which is what I wanted.

I Spy was a lot of fun, but the sashing was a pain (only because I didn't accurately measure!). Will certainly do another one.

RE: I thought this was cool (Follow-Up #14)

posted by: mary_c on 01.18.2007 at 07:12 pm in Quilting Forum

I like the contra quilts, and may steal the idea.

However, while I agree that it's a very interesting method of getting blocks on point, I LIKE my pointy points, and I never found putting blocks on point to be difficult.

Lay it out on a design board, sew the setting triangles onto each diagonal row, and sew the rows together. It really doesn't seem all that difficult! I set many quilts on point:

Would anyone be interested?

In doing a Quilting Forum Quilt of Valor?

My thoughts were each participant makes a 12" block in red, white, and blue (or red and white, or blue and white), signs it, sends it to me. I will provide sashing, batting, backing, quilting and binding. I will keep a journal of the process, and include any and all journal entries and photographs from contributers who wish to contribute to that. I would also attribute the quilt (on the label) to the THS Quilting Forum Members, with everyone's actual or forum names.

I would prefer white on white for the blocks, because I have purchased many yards of this for backing the quilts.

The organization wants a quilt to be 50 x 60 inches minimum, but larger is OK, and usually what I do. So my thoughts are that 12 12" blocks with sashing and borders would make a really nice quilt.

I will also make a pillowcase for the quilt, embroidered with "Quilt of Valor". This makes for a nice presentation.

The drawback is that this is not a swap. You get absolutely nothing in return, LOL, except possibly the gratitude of a wounded soldier. And you may never even hear about that - I've not heard any response from the 2 I've already sent.

Drum Roll please. ..my Shakespeare quilt at last(

posted by: fran1523 on 01.11.2007 at 04:24 pm in Quilting Forum

I am so excited to finally post pictures of my completed Shakespeare in the Park quilt. I started it in August of 2005 and finished piecing it in June of 2006. Right after I took it to the long arm quilter, she broke her arm and wasn't able to work on it for several months. I finally got it back right after Thanksgiving and now the binding is complete. Wait till you see the gorgeous quilting she did. This quilt is queen size and will adorn my bed.

RE: Has anyone heard of Lazy Mazy kaleidoscopes? (Follow-Up #6)

posted by: quiltdiva on 01.11.2007 at 08:56 am in Quilting Forum

Welcome Melissa! There are tons of kaleidoscopes that you can buy through EBay and they're all basically the same pattern. Just type in kaleidoscope quilt in EBay's search and they'll come up. Here's a quilt I made using a set I bought there although it wasn't Lazy Mazy but they are basically the same thing.

Americana Flag Swap for 4th of July

posted by: redpenny on 01.11.2007 at 01:25 am in Quilting Forum

Okay I think this would be a great 4th of July swap for a wall hanging or a quilt.The link is below to the block.
I designed this in EQ LOL just to give you idea as how you could enlarge it to a lap quilt size the block link also had a design layout.
On this flag block we will use red white and blue you could also replace the nine-patch unit to a soild fabric or design your own corner star you decided.
The block is a 10 1/2" block. (That is - 11" unfinished.)
Let's get some feedback if anyone would like to do this for a 4th of July Swap I am thinking we could do this with 9 swappers that would be 9 blocks no more then 12 swappers the blocks would be due June.
