What a great idea. I will certainly be making a few of those aprons. Thanks for sharing.
There are embroidery websites that will digitize designs for you, inexpensive and sometimes the same day. Sorry, I do not have the addresses for these, but google " same day embroidery digitizing" and that should help. Hope this helps you, Lisa ( aquiltersheart)
I really like these. I'd never seen cutnfold quilts before. Beautiful color choices.
Here are some of my favourites and are really quick and easy, I think:
1. Rail Fence (http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-9qG-XZTJM)
2. Four Patch (http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HQM8wI95xeI)
3. Charm Patch (http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=aJoDt4DMkFU)
4. Falling Charms (http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4KkpbFKBaKA)
5. Zigzag Quilt (http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iwJU9A7Mhsc)
Expensive is a relative term. Digitizing software can be $2000 or more. Also, in order to use it will you need a lot of training. If you know someone who digitizes, it would probably be easier and cheaper to have them digitize for you and pay them. I have the Floriani software and have taught it. However, it isn't easy. But the updates are free. In the end it depends on how much $$$ and effort you want to put in.
I'd say the "Tossed 9 Patch" is as easy and quick as they come. Google for a free description and pattern. Mostly you make a 9 patch block, then cut it in half (both top to bottom and the side to side), flip a couple of pieces around the other direction and sew them back together. Simple, qquick, not a lot of brain power used up.
Quilt in a Day won't take long but plan on some time to go through Hancocks. I went there last month. Actually went one day but just had to go back for a second time the next day. What fun.
IT LOOKS LIKR A REALLY FUN QUILT. GOOD JOB
I didn't find any there.
Warm and Natural is 100% cotton, lays flat, and drapes really well. After washing it gives it that nice old time crinkled look. Hobbs 80/20 is 80% cotton and 20% poly. It has a nice very, very, low loft (compared to 100% poly). It quilts nicely. It is the one I use most of the time when quilting at work and what most customers want. I have not found an 80/20 in white, so when a customer has a quilt in white, I suggest the Warm and White. It will keep the white part from looking dingy.
That turned out fantastic! I think you did a great job. I love all the prints..perfect for kids! Kudos!
Such a pretty block.
Looks like the dunkers path arranged with plain squares. Very interesting

I don't know the pattern but I like it. It would be easy enough to create that curvy square. Just cut a paper square the finished size then using something with a curve on it, such as a saucer, draw a curve from one corner diagonally to the other. Cut the paper along that line. Place both pieces of paper on a large piece of paper and trace then add a 1/4 inch seam allowance all the way around.
This pattern is still available on Clothworks website I just seen it last week while looking for another one.
I have a bunch of the Warm and Natural. And, I like it very much. I find it lays flat really really well. But, when it is gone, I'm am going to buy the Hobbs 80/20. I find it "crinkles" nice when you wash it. So, it really is about how you want your quilts to lay. I am certain there are other threads (conversation topics) here on the board that have a lot of info also.
Check out Martha Pullen's web site. Some of her designs are pricey, but they are well done.
Never been to Marshall's, but this summer I took a trip with a couple other quilts in Texas and we spent an average of about 2.5 to 3 hours in each store we visited. I was surprised how fast time flies when you are shopping with others. So much fun. Have a fantastic trip!
Beautiful! Love the colors.
very pretty. love your colors.
