Crazy heart

Started this discussion. Last reply by Riana Noyes Feb 22, 2012. 3 Replies

This is only a block, not a quilt. It's lying on a store bought quilt. I am attempting to appliqué them on with ribbons as separators. Should I put lace or something aroundd them?

Tried uploading photo of my crazy quilt hearts but the photo did not show up. Is it the phone or is it me! I would love to talk to someone!

Profile Information

Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
As a beginner trying to get straight seams and straight cuts, I salute all you wonderful quilters! I am amazed at the beauty and the creativity of you all! I'm doing all this from my iPhone and sometimes get lost, so please forgive me if I miss something. My first BOM, with Craftsy, was wonky! Couldn't get it square, finally got to 10 1/2 x 10 1/2! Message me anytime, I'll get back to sewing.
How many quilts have you made?
Now trying to put batting and top n backing together
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
Both. I love the colors and the memories in quilts.
How long have you been a quilter?
What is your favorite quilting technique?
Don't know yet, but machine quilting holds up well. Have some arthritis in hands, think hand quilting would be too awkward.
Why do you quilt?
Fun, pretty fabrics, and I hope to actually complete one.
Do you have a website?

Hej  Frances, I am glad that you like Denmark so do I. As most patchwork fabric we pay in Denmark is either form the USA or England there is no point of sending any of it back to the USA. Futhermore the frightcharges will be to expensive. I wish you good luck in your search for Valentine and hearts fabric. Which I by the way do not have any of.

I mostly make artquilts, later on this year I will add some photos of work to my profile.

Take care.

I have 'Pin' doll size that you can use for pocket size already made up. One is plain for your decoration and the others have yarn for hair, some have beads, if you want to chose either Red or green. Some are dancing and some are just straight up and down, they don't bend. I sell on ebay and etsy. I don't have any up right now, if you would like one, let me know. $5 and shipping.  Blessings, Janet  ZPindolls1G.jpg  ZPindollsR.jpg

Hullo Frances

 Yes we have summer weather here and the last few days have been hot hot hot! 30 -37 degrees each day... not easy weather to quilt in! In Cape Town we have a few patchwork shops that import fabrics and also supply local fabric. The local ones are interesting to work with - called Da Gama or Shwe-shwe and of course African fabric from up north. fabric is an expensive commodity here and a great deal of my 'wealth' is in my stash! Keep up with your crazy hearts. regards Jenny

Thanks for the compliment!! I started embroidering when I was about ten and have been sewing since (I'm 54). I just started sewing a few years ago and have made two queen size quilts and two twin size quilts and the rest are smaller. The circles quilt was my second quilt and is my oldest grand daughter who lives with us. She saw it at the quilt shop and asked me to make her that one. Her room is blues with clouds and thought this went with it well. I am working on quilting the butterfly quilts right now. It's a work in progress. I will post them when I'm done. That just is one part of it I really don't enjoy. I also have a block of the month that I have done for our bed, but I'm sending that out to a girl that you can check out on FaceBook her name is Karen Marchetti!! I did get some ideas on what to do from one she did for my butterfly quilt. I'm doing it on my Brother Innvois4000D embroidery machine. The only thing is hooping each area is a hassle. I plan on doing quilts for all the grandkids (I have seven now) and both of the kids and thats it. I like doing it, but not the quilting part. ANYway thanks a bunch for the compliment:)

Hi Francs-

Thanks so much for being willing to donate a doll quilt! I have not decided on final rules yet, but there are general ones posted ion the discussion. If you go under "swapping fun for everyone" and click on baby doll quilt exchange you will see all postings so far. the guidelines are there. If you have trouble finding it, just let me know and I will repost for you. Nice to "meet" you!

Hi Frances, It looks like your crazy heart blocks are free motion quilted - great job.  I get a lot of inspiration from Leah Day - you can google her and see her work.  She does a lot of FMQ.  Right now I am doing 3 quilts on commission - a woman who's father passed away has asked me to make a quilt for her and one for each of her two sisters.  She gave me about 20 shirts that were her dad's and she has also given me a photo that each of the women selected to put in the middle of each of their perspective quilts.  I have never done a photo quilt before so this is a new adventure.  I have never been commissioned to quilt either so it is very exciting.  I don't know if I will be able to post the finished quilts, but I will ask and see how she feels about it.  My next project will be a baby quilt for a work associate of my husband's - his wife is expecting a baby boy in April.  It will only be my second baby quilt and I haven't decided on a design yet.  Any way, I love your work and your color choices/combinations.  Happy Quilting!!!
