I have started this new thread to replace the old one which was just too full.

Here is something I'm working on.



I'm using fabric from the fabric swaps.

It's been a minute, but I finally finished my next corner to corner.

Regular buttons and buttonholes on quilted might be too bulky but what about buttons with loops? Or maybe eyelets and laces?

Grace -

I have that Daisy Kingdom pattern and another wrap apron pattern that is similar. I thought of using them, but The armholes are a bit lower and I thought they might be too low. I used a quilted vest I have and made a pattern. I'm using scrap fabrics first, and may try both ways and see which fits best.

Judith -

Exactly, but I am thinking of making it with no seams except for the shoulder seams. I have also thought about making one or both shoulder seams closing with buttons,but don't know if that would be too bulky. What do you think?

That awesome Grace! I will have to look and see if I can find it anywhere. That's all I need lol! More ideas for things to make.

Krista,, we do not have cable, pay-for-view, nor do we stream or subscribe to certain TV venues... we have an Antenna in the attic, and get what ever comes via the air.. but fortunately we do get major channels as well as PBS and Create.

Judith, yes it will be. But I am starting to think it's going to be like a king sized one lol! I have so many different patterns I want to do. I have 22 that I want to make. It only has 8 characters while the rest are objects or symbols. I decided to start on the Hogwarts Express next, so that is the one I started this week.

Grace, I actually don't have cable service. Do you watch it on a streaming platform?

Heather, right! I was thinking the same thing. I guess there is only so much detail you can do lol!

Linda, that looks neat. I hope you can figure out the pattern and make you one.

Krista

Krista - great job on another piece done. She just doesn't look quite as sassy as she is in the movies LOL!

Linda - what a unique project. I think I'd like an apron like that!!! Please keep us updates on your progress - I'd love to see how it turns out.

Interesting patten -- I see one piece for the back and two curved pieces for the front, joined on the side under the arms. Am I close?

I'm working on trying to putting together a quilt piece to then cut up to make a quilted top. I found a pattern several years ago that I have wanted to make and made a pattern. I have a "cutter" quilt I want to use, but am making a small quilt just the size I need to try first.

This is not mine; this is the picture I found, but I have not been able to find a pattern for it.


I used a vest I have as a basis for the pattern I made. I also have a wrap apron pattern that I may be able to use.

Krista,, do you ever watch " Knit and Crochet Today" on the 'Create channel?
They do some of the loveliest projects.

How cute! Is this going to be an afghan? How many characters are in it?

Very cool, Krista! Thanks for explaining it to me! :)

Very pretty pattern. I can't crochet worth beans so the illustration is as clear as mud to me but I'm sure the crochet gals know what it means.

Karen, here is the next pattern I will be doing. Each box on the pattern consists of a chain 2 and 3 half double crochet. It looks like a tiny square.

Here is a close up of my crochet squares.

And this is the one I'm working on. Over half way done to show the direction it goes.


Krista
MaryJanesNiece Posted - Mar 15 2024 : 3:59:16 PM
Thanks everyone.

Karen, a corner to corner is basically like making tiny half double crochet or double crochet boxes and then working them diagonally from the bottom right corner to the top left corner. I prefer the half double crochet because they are tighter. I'll see if I can take a close up picture of them.

Krista

Great job, Krista!! Would someone explain to me what a corner to corner is, please? I have an idea but I’m not sure…

Krista, Love Ron!!!! Can't wait to see the finished project.



There is never a road so long that there isn't a curve in it.

Thanks Linda and Heather. As each one gets finished, I find myself getting more and more excited for the finished piece.
