Molly Makes Her Debut!!!!

posted by: cindee11461 on 05.17.2009 at 01:58 pm in Garden Junk Forum

Here she is in all her glory.
She is a black toilet float fish. I glued the fins on and the copper tubing to match her other gold fish friends. I used black epoxy. She has silver washers for eyes. Isn't she just a cutie! She fits right in with the rest of the fish too!

Latest quilt

posted by: karpet on 11.02.2007 at 07:28 pm in Quilting Forum

This is a quilt I finished for a friend who moved away. The center is made up of colors in her furniture. She was a math major and a math teacher, so I made the first border with the pencils. She also is musical and plays the piano so thus the second border, and the third border (which doesn't show up real well - I should have recruited another set of hands to hold up the top with me!) is bookshelves.

Illuminations from the book Quilt Mavens by Deb Karasik and Janet Mednick

Finished the top this morning. Dedicated to my best friend Beasley who had to be put to sleep on Tuesday. Sad week for me. He loved to sleep on my quilts :-)

I need to think how I going to quilt this. I'm thinking a variegated thread for the archs and a black metallic for the back ground.

My 'New' Ironing Board (3 Pics)

posted by: sew_self-taught on 03.24.2007 at 08:58 pm in Quilting Forum

Some of you may not have seen my post from a few months ago about my old ironing board that popped up and down. Back then, so many of you gave me great advice on how to make my own larger and stiffer board. Well, the snow has finally melted and we were able to take the truck into town to buy wood. We had the store cut inch plywood to 23"x58". DH bought 1"x2" to make a "frame" for the old ironing board to rest in. Its hard to see in the "during" pic. We just used glue for the frame support. I used two layers of thin batting and covered it with white flannel. I stapled everything to the wood. I could have sewn a cover, but I didnt. Im sure it wont look this white for very long. Thanks for all of your tips. I love my new board!!

RE: Book Shelf Quilt??? (Follow-Up #2)

posted by: sew_self-taught on 07.19.2007 at 06:53 pm in Quilting Forum

Grace & Anjea -
That is just so funny that you would ask today. Im just finishing putting a hanging sleeve on it. I took a break to give my raw finger a rest and saw your post!

DH LOVES it! The morning of our anniversary we were sitting in our little camper and I pulled it out of a cupboard (all wrapped with a bow). He was so surprised I could hide it in there. When he opened it he even got a little tear in one eye. Hes been emailing the quilt top photo to our friends and family.

Thank you to everyone who gave me their input on quilting ideas. The long-arm quilter that I have used does not stitch in the ditch. I was in a crunch to get it quilted, and didnt want to look for someone else in fear of him finding out. I went with all over stippling in a neutral thread color. So the quilting is secondary, it doesnt add or take away from the quilt.

I wasnt sure if DH would want to use it or hang it. Im flattered that he wants to hang it. DH has a masters in art. He taught college art for 35+ years, and my quilt just bumped Cy Twombly off that wall.

Thanks for asking!

Nina

Im ready for some strip poker, even if I did "lose my shirt" at the retreat, LOL.

What quilting design to use

posted by: bonnie-w on 07.04.2007 at 12:02 pm in Quilting Forum

I have finally finished this top and started to stitch in the ditch quilting, but didn't like the way it looked. I got it about half done and ripped it all out. It took hours and hours, but it's all out. My question is: What other design could I use beside stitch in the ditch? When you quilt do you think of the design on the back of the quilt? Any ideas you might have would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Bonnie

finished Strolling the Block

posted by: rene54 on 07.07.2007 at 11:52 pm in Quilting Forum

Well I have just uploaded the pictures for my Strolling the Block. It is on my Flickr site and I invite you to view.
For new members I will tell you that last year some of us decided to have a challenge with a quilt from HGTV, Simply Quilts. The quilt was a set of 12 blocks of little houses, each represented a month. Each month we did a block, I am not sure how many joined in or have completed their blocks. But I have finished mine. In this year I have already made 2 quilts and a baby one too. So I knew I did not have the stemina to do another quilt,so I had to figure out a way of putting my blocks together. My blocks are a little different because I made them to represent my area, one hit by Katrina in 2005, and I made the decision to "write a book", so I invite you to view my new book. Rene

PIC - mystery Snowstorm Quilt

posted by: mexicomarti on 07.04.2007 at 03:29 pm in Quilting Forum

Well, it's not a mystery snowstorm. It's that New Year's Day mystery quilt. I loved the colors that one of our gals here used. made me think of snow in New Jersey, so I copied her colors. Sorry I forget the name, but if I have time will look for her post in the archives. I want to give her full credit. Sorry it is so big....I lost my photo program.

Pic of Mexico Marti's interpretation of QuiltDiva's Mexican Tiles

posted by: laurainsdca on 06.28.2007 at 05:09 pm in Quilting Forum

Some of us were discussing the pattern Quilt Diva (Kay) created named Mexican Tiles in MaryLiz's thread on entering your own pattern in a contest.

Kay made this gorgeous quilt and then Marti liked it so much she asked for the pattern and made her own. Since there are so many newbies on here lately I thought you might like to see the picture of it.

This is the one Marti made. I don't have a copy of Kay's original but it was also beautiful. And then Kay very generously shared her pattern with those of us who asked for it.

Yay! A finished WISP--pic

posted by: coalaska on 06.05.2007 at 01:16 am in Quilting Forum

First, THANK YOU to everyone on this forum. Because of your inspiration and encouragement, I have been more motivated to complete projects. Recently, I made a list of ALL the UFOs I have, projects I want to do, etc. And, I've been checking things off as they are finished! THANK YOU!

This quilt was started in late 2003 for a Christmas present for my niece. I actually gave it to her as a top with a promise to finish it "soon." She's since graduated from HS and just finished her first year at college. About time, Aunt Cheryl.

Finally! I feel like I've spent all year working on this quilt! I think I started it in February. It's my niece's high school graduation gift - hey - I'm only a couple months late! I told her I have so much time in it that when she graduates from college I'm just going to put a new label on it. :)

Toad House

posted by: adina72 on 04.09.2007 at 10:20 am in Garden Junk Forum

I made this over the weekend after seeing similar ones on another forum....it's made from 6" PVC pipe cut to about 8" tall with a plastic funnel found at the auto parts store. I glued on the stones I got from the $1 store with GE Silicone II in a tan color then hot glued reindeer moss between the stones (after the silicone dried). The top was covered with a coco liner like you'd use for a hanging wire basket. The opening is about 4" wide x 3" tall, perfect for a big fat toad.

new (to me) type of string quilt

posted by: sandra_ferguson on 04.08.2007 at 10:18 am in Quilting Forum

I found this somewhere and cut the pic out.....I love string quilts and this one looks different in form, but equally easy...and, great for scraps. If you look at the component blocks one can see lots of possibilities, even using just 2, or 3 fabrics. I really like this one.

Mar POTM - Window Greenhouse

posted by: quincelover on 03.02.2007 at 01:34 pm in Garden Junk Forum

Oops I had said the garden rocking chair was my first piece of junk. Althought this is not in my garden. I saw this idea in a store for $125.00 and went on the hunt for windows to make my own. I sometimes will display a plant in it....now it has seashells and a basket of coral in it. I painted it a light aqua and crackled it with white. Made from two windows cut in half (including the glass). Used a hair dryer to soften the calk around the glass to remove so I could cut in half. Cut one glass in half and put back in the window halves the "roof" did not put the glass back in. Have fun with this one....Lu Ann

Blue Pots 3 - FINISHED and Planted

posted by: rosemarythyme on 10.21.2006 at 05:07 pm in Garden Junk Forum

Okay ladies, here they are: Worked like a fiend to get them painted and planted. Thanks for all your advice about paint. BUT my goal was to give them an old world look. So any weathering that occurs because they didn't cure properly is fine by me. I'll see how they fare over the winter. And if need be, I'll repaint in the spring. I painted the larger pot and planted pansies in two pots. The tallest column has lantana planted in the small pot. I put in the mums between the colums and a few pansies (I bought WAY too many of those and have had to spread them throughout the beds). I made a little boo boo on one of the pavers--blue paint! but might paint the tops of all of them. Oh the paint: acrylic craft paints, copper, gold metallic, cad lt. red, pearl emerald green, thalo blue, cobalt blue, same blue as my shutters (that was the first coat watered down), yellow ocre. Anyway, layers and layers and layers. Hope you enjoy

Terra cotta saucer mosaics

I also posted this at Garden Accoutrements, but maybe it belongs in this forum instead. I took a class in making stained glass pieces last summer, and when my projects were through I had lots of leftover glass,and had also learned to score and grind in an amateur way. I read about making mosaics using terra cotta saucers and now I am addicted to sitting out on my recliner and gluing bits of glass!

$20 and 2 hours later....

posted by: jenfur427 on 07.16.2006 at 09:29 pm in Garden Junk Forum

I saw this on GW, and thought I'd give it a try. The one I saw was much more filled in, but I could only find the 2.5 pots, plus they cost a bit more than I thought they would. So I bought a bag of moss to fill in the gaps. It doesn't stand out as well from my fence as I'd like, but being in base housing, I can't exactly hang it from the siding of the house. Hope you like!
