Best of Flickr
Best of Flickr et al.
Have I mentioned that I LOVE Flickr? I’m thinking I found Flickr via Hilary of Wee Wonderfuls. Then that morphed into all the doll quilt and other quilting groups, then it just got crazy and I started this blog and starting swapping… I love the crafting community discussion and seeing what everyone is making. You can thank Kim for this particular post though. I like how she did a little post dedicated to her top 10 photos on her photostream. So here are mine, in mosaic form because I love that, too! (Ok, only 9 of them because it works better that way! #10 is a repeat anyway.)
Alrighty…I have 882 photos with 10,405 views since May of 2007. These are my “most interesting.”
1. My August (’07) Doll Quilt Challenge quilt. A lovely tutorial here from Allsorts. Done in Summer in the City fabrics. Is it any surprise I used this for my header here?! I think this was mentioned on Sew, Mama, Sew once which is how it probably gained it’s popularity.
2. Disappearing 9 Patch Doll Quilt. I don’t claim credit for the pattern (I found it on Helen’s blog, Quilts and ATCs), but I’d like to take credit for it’s popularity, if I may?! People went crazy when I posted this on Flickr and Whiplash. To this day “Disappearing 9 Patch” is the search that gets people to my blog most often. This was also my very first doll quilt.
3. My “Ugly Picnic Quilt” first string blocks. I have to laugh at this one. I feel like I’ve gotten a lot of flack for calling these ugly! I see many people love them, I just can’t help my feelings, people. I’m trying. I appreciate all the lovely comments though.
4. Mini Pleated Handbag. I just mentioned this one in that Abc’s post, it’s my purse! It’s a mini versions of the bag in Amy Carol’s Bend-the-Rules Sewing. Love it. Love the green fabric which is Paisley Cactus by Chez Moi for Moda. To this day, my favorite fabric, no longer available last I looked. I have enough left to make another bag maybe.
6. Strippy Doll Quilt. This one went out as an angel/fairy quilt for a Doll Quilt 1 participant who hadn’t received a quilt. I got so crazy sewing strips together for it that I had enough to make one for me, too! Tutorial was from happythings.
7. Tropical Flower Log Cabin. This was the doll quilt that I did for the 2nd Doll Quilt swap. It’s a doll sized version of Wildflower Log Cabin pattern from the Aug. 2005 American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine.
8. Love: Hand Quilted Doll Quilt. This remains in the state seen in the picture! Inspired by this photo. Can you tell I love hand quilting??
9. Toddler Patchwork Scarf for the Sew, Mama, Sew sew-along. It was fun, but I never used it!! It was a little stiff because I used thin batting in it. But it features my first ever real embroidery. I haven’t done any embroidery since!
10. (not shown) More “Ugly” String Blocks. Hahahaha! I mean, beautiful!!
