Past Presents Posted

Here are some Christmas and birthday presents that I never posted about!

This is a bracelet I made for my sister out of shell, glass and wooden beads.

I made these 8 quilted linen coasters for my mom for her birthday. I cut up some old linen pants I had for the underside and for the upper side I cut up an old linen vest. I just LOVE the fabric but the cut was not very fashionable anymore. I used the pattern from Last Minute Patchwork & Quilted Gifts. I absolutely adore this book. The projects in it are very do-able and the directions are great. I have made several things from this book for various friends and family and they were all hits. Now, I need to make something for me from it. :)

I made this sewing bag for my sis. I am ashamed to admit that this was her Christmas present from about 4 years ago or something? Yes, I finally finished it. Eek!

These are some pillow cases I made for my sister for her birthday. She loves pink. :) These were also made from a pattern in the Last Minute book. With a few alterations to accommodate the fabric I had (scraps from this quilt).

I made this little turtle for my little newborn cousin Breanna Mae. The pattern is from Bend the Rules Sewing.

This is a knitted cuff that I made awhile ago. Just recently I added the star and the metal buttons and gave it to my friend for Christmas along with this iPod case:

Have a lovely day! :)
Love, Genevieve

Amelie's Quilt

The lovely Adelhiede of The Garret Corner and Nimble Thimble had a very brilliant idea and I think it's catching! For awhile she will be posting pictures of finished projects from the past. She thought it would be fun if more people did it too. I think I shall join her!
This is the quilt I made for my beautiful niece Amelie Claire! I finished it in August sometime. After my car accident I had a lot of time to quilt! Amelie was born in April of 2008. So, I was only four months late in giving it to her! :)
I started this project October 2nd, 2007 and finished it on August 25th or thereabouts. Hmm...not TOOO bad. ;)

(All pictures taken by the famous and accomplished Aimee)

The banner reads: "You shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water. Psalm 1:3

I quilted the moon to look like cheese! :-D

Added these flowers to make a little bit more girly. Didn't know if it would be a girl or a boy when I started the quilt.
River of life (before it got washed). I used some chiffon for an overlay over the cotton. I like the shimmery effect. Here it is after it got washed. I think it bunched up nicely.
Ok, I confess. This tree trunk is my favorite part of the quilt. I adore the fabric (fat quarter from Hancock Fabrics) and the texture the quilting gave it. This trunk took me an ENTIRE Extended edition Lord of The Rings marathon. About 12 hours straight. Whew!
This quilt was a fun one for fat quarters. The trunk, leaves, grass, waves and moon were all fat quarters. Everything else except for the main "starry" fabric and the backing were all scraps I had on hand.

Here is the label I made for the quilt. The quilt had to have SOME pink on it!

Tried to make this look like basket weave.

All wrapped up and ready!

For me?

Hmm...let's does it feel?

And, more importantly, how does it taste?

It has passed the test. It is Certified Amelie Worthy!

Have a lovely day!
