Love this t-shirt quilt!
This is what I refer to as Style 2, framed design. This works perfectly when there aren’t many shirts and / or they are different sizes. The shirts are framed with a contrasting fabric that really showcases the t-shirts. This does require a bit more math calculations on my part, but it is so worth it!
These are mug rugs aka coasters.
I was practicing a new technique (well, new to me) to attach binding to a quilt or project of any size. Since it’s easiest to practice on something small, I made these. This technique uses the backing fabric to wrap around to the front and make mitered corners so it finishes nice and tidy.
These were really fun to make. The smaller one, the lace was cut from an embroidered tablecloth that I don’t remember where it came from. The larger one, that linen came from one of my moms tablecloths. Now don’t get upset about me cutting into a family heirloom. Ok, so it is a family heirloom, but I am cutting them up and making them into useful items. This is so much better then leaving it folded in the closet or hope chest and not being used at all. This is also a nice way to share this among family members.
This is a crazy quilt needlebook I made the other day. The crazy quilting was popular during the Victirian Era and not a lot of people do it anymore, but I sure love it! The rich fabrics, embroidery, and all the lace, buttons, and beads – just makes my heart sing! Needless to say, a great place to store needles and pins.
Ok, ya have to admit these little bags are cute, right? I’m going to include them with my collection of dice bags for D&D players, but they could really be used for lots of other things.
Made these organizing Pods from an embroidered tablecloth. If you are not using the tablecloth, make it into something you will use.
Made this type of dice bag and I’m really liking this design. It has 8 inside pockets and a large center area to store and separate several of sets of dice.
I have been working on some dice bags for friends that would like to corral all their dice. Seems game players can’t have just one set of dice, they have multiple sets. I can help organize that.
These are fully lined and padded to protect the dice. I am also working on another pattern and will post those when I have some samples made.
Protect your dice in style!
Podlet – reversible and folds flat for storage
Mug warmer for Janet – she loves rick rac! NOT!!!
These are two baby quilts made for my niece, Alissa. Her sister, Ashley, and I made them for her baby shower. Just in time, too! She had the baby two days later.
Made some dice bags since my gaming friends seem to have a lot of sets of dice. A fun way to organize and protest them.
I have been making some dice bags for gamers who have more than one set of dice – which is most of them! I can help organize them and keep them protected.
