So which ones are your favorites? jane brocket: garden party quilt It's quite a while now since I wrote the post about cutting up old, hand-embroidered tablecloths, the one that caused a certain amount of adverse comment. I looked for the post but couldn't find it which make me think I must have decided I couldn't countenance any further negativity about what seems to me to be a non-starter in the outrage stakes. Anyway, while sorting out almost every room in the house in the past week or so - you know what it's like, you start off trying to make space for a few more books and suddenly the whole place ends up rearranged in knock-on Rubik's Cube-style solution - I unpacked some large boxes of projects I've made for various books. Out came the crochet and out came the cushions to be put to good use, and out came lots of quilts that I haven't seen for a while. One them is the Garden Party Quilt. I used some of the leftover unstitched areas of the clotsh to make a border and put some little stitched squares in the corners.

DIY: Flannel Baby Rag Quilt REPOSTED ok.. so strange, but many people have not been able to get to the older link for this baby rag quilt. We have contacted blogger with no luck. I think that if we direct traffic to this link as well as the other we might solve the problem, and more people will be able to view this tutorial. DIY: Flannel Baby Rag Quilt This is the softest little quilt made of flannel. All you need: 7 different, yet coordinating flannel fabrics cut @ 1/2 a yard each (so 7 half yards of fabric) 2 yards of solid flannel fabric for the batting (the middle of the quilt) (white is usually the best) about half a yard of matching fabric for the binding matching thread sewing machine And here is how it is done: * Cut 2 strips of each fabric @ 6 inches wide (one strip will be the front and one the back) * Cut strips 2 of each fabric @ 3 inches wide (one strip will be the front and one the back) * Cut 7 strips of solid flannel @ 6 inches wide (this will go in between the other fabric strips measuring 6 inches wide) Bind it P.S.

DIY Heat Pack I had a belly ache the other day and decided a heat pack would be the only rememdy… except we didn’t own one. Cue sad face. So I went hunting for a DIY. There are stacks out there, but this one on The Johnston’s blog was what I referenced before I started. You can make so many versions of this once you know how – like not creating segments, adding different oils, or even adding herbs and tea. Here’s what you’ll need: – Cotton Fabric – Matching thread – Sewing machine – Scissors – Uncooked rice (I used 2.5 – 3 cups) – Essential Oil (optional) Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7. *Note: Some blogs I read recommend putting a glass of water in the microwave with the heat pack to stop the rice burning. Chris's Interests: Pretty Cuff on Cut-Off Jeans Pretty Cuff on Cut-Off Jeans Quite simple to do ~ take the width of the leg of your Jeans, add 6" to each end (for tie) ~ decide how wide you want your cuff (usually about 3-4") then double the width of that measurement ~ so width would be 6-8" ~ double fabric matching right sides of fabric~ sew the ends together ~ TURN the cuff so it is right side out ~ press ~ mark the center of your cuff and start it a the inside seam of the jeans (leg inside) pin or baste it matching the edges of the fabric to the edges of the jeans, (have fabric or cuff part up inside the leg) Sew around until you have about 1" on each side of the tie or the outside seam, turn the cuff up and press!! Too Cute!
