    Rumbols, So glad you had some good news and hoping the next tests come out well, too.

    Rhonda, your work is beautiful...love the kaleidoscopes! I don't know how you can do the Mini's. They are so little and cute. My fingers are too big, I guess. .
    Sew many Quilts.......so little time!

    Doing a kaleidoscope quilt is a big want of mine. I’ve had the perfect fabric set aside for it for years. I’m just hoping I can convince one of our LQS’s to do a class on it. I’d feel better that way being guided through at least the first one. I’ve been waiting so long though I may just get up the nerve & do it. They definitely seem intimidating like you said Teen.
    Rhonda, I don’t know how you do those miniatures. Keeping those seems allowances so perfect for such a little thing would drive me nuts. I figure that you have to be spot on with minis.

    Connecting threads has a tutorial for the kaleidoscope. Look under free patterns.

I sewed the background with some of the fancy stitching on my sewing machine to make it look like wall paper (something new for me) before appliqueing the flowers on. I used a batik FQ set and pieced the binding when done. Hope this is clear enough to get a picture of what the wall hanging looks like (can't post pics). Will pm our host and likely not be on the board for a few days or weeks depending on my doctor. I will be reading whenever I can, so good luck to everybody with their wall hangings. Everyone have a nice safe holiday next month.
    I finaly found it. That is so pretty!

    Pretty and mini! I am dabbling in trying a smaller scale. I took a class that we did Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage quilt and I learned a lot about smaller scale blocks. I also bought some smaller rulers, cutting mat and cutter. Not necessary but helpfull. Can't wait to see my goody from Rhonda. So kind of you!

    The dresden Kaleidoscopes are so easy. If you want to learn I'd be happy to show you. I send out a free template for the DKs.

    I teach my own shortcut methods which make the minis easier to do. You can use the method for any size not just minis.

    I have a lot of tutorials on this forum.

    I am having some serious sewing machine frustration LOL My favorite brother decided to lock up on me. I have 4 other brothers but they were bought for my grandkids to use when here so they are more simple machines. I want to use a particular stitch on my Project Runway machine but it is locked up. I finally gave in and ordered another one on Ebay. I need this stitch to finish one of those goodies I will be sending out LOL

    In the Netherlands many people do mini quilts because the cost of fabric over there is even more prohibitive but I just like doing minis for the sake of doing small quilts. They are just so stinking cute.

    Hi! I’ve been thinking of joining this swap but am a little intimidated. What would you say is the skill level needed?

    I did. I just have noticed from lurking on previous threads that the skill level seems higher. I would hate to disappoint someone.

    Ok! I’d like to give it a try. I’ve got some ideas of wall hangings I can explore.

    ive been looking at the farm girl vintage and thinking about doing a four block or a barn block for my wall hanging. Also considering a wool flowers wall hanging that I started a few months ago but I’m having trouble with the hand stitching. I’m left handed and I just can’t seem to get the hang of a left handed blanket stitch. I’m thinking I’ll use my machine to do the blanket stitching. It’s pretty big, I’m hoping not too big...how big is a lap quilt anyway?

    Pamela we love any and all skill levels. If it is made by you the skill level is not as important as something handmade. I have received small quilts that are simple and those that are more complicated. I treasure every one for the person who made it! It always amazes me that I can hold a small quilt or wall hanging in my hands and know it was in the makers hands not long ago. It is sort of like reaching out for a handshake or hug.

    A lap quilt is just to say don't make it twin size. LOL I used to set a limit and there would always be someone who would say I can't send this one because it is 2" bigger than your limit. So when I started this swap in 2012 I wanted to stop those silly questions.

    That's why there are no real rules. Anything goes. Size is up to you. just don't make it big enough to cover a whole wall LOL

    I'd rather you have fun with it and enjoy the process rather than worry about it fitting some specific size or guidelines.

    I'd love to have you join us and I hope you enjoy the swap!!

    Just remember to send me your address and information and remember to let me know when you have a wall hanging ready to mail before the end of the last day in Feb.

    Love your gray quilting. The contrast is well done! Love the quilting in the border.

    If you want to be in the swap remember to send me a pm with your address information. Hope you have fun here! The ladies are always happy to help if you need anything. I'll be in off and on and check to see if anyone needs anything.

    You are not commited if you sign up for this swap. the only list that counts is the ready to mail list in Feb. The sign up is more just for fun to see who is interested. In Feb whoever is done by the end of Feb will get an address to send their wall hanging to. So make sure you let me know in a pm when your WH is ready to mail.

    Enjoy the journey!! Rhonda

    Sign up List --

    The sign up list is only for fun. It is just to see who is interested in playing!!

    This list is not a committment. The only list that counts is the READY TO MAIL list at the end of the swap.

    The sign up list is just to see who is interested

    So here goes----

    If you want to join in let me know. This is not a commitment. When you send me a pm telling me you are ready to mail that will be the commitment.

    So if you don't get done in time you can just wait and use your wh for the next swap.
    No stress no mess no fuss LOL just have lots of fun!

    Don't stress! Just play and have lots of fun. The only rule is bigger than a mugrug and smaller than a lap quilt. So the sky is the limit on creativity!! Enjoy the process!!!

    You may see a surprise from me in your mail in the coming weeks!! So make sure I have your correct address!!

    Want to see some of my doll quilts I"ve made for the doll quilt swap in the past?

    This one I almost didn't part with LOL It's of course my own design.
    This is one of the biggest I've ever done. I believe it was 18" x 18"
    It went to a swapper called Mountaingirl and this is a Bear's paw LOL

    Rhonda...that is beautiful...and that's why I haven't joined in swaps before...I simply wasn't willing to give up some things. I've made a ton of stuff for charity, but that's different somehow. I don't think I would ever give up one of my mini quilts. As for wall hangings, I'll probably duplicate one that I'm keeping...that way I can let it go gracefully. How about this one?
