Hi Guys,

 Ive joined this quiltalongathon  (https://www.facebook.com/groups/303534777092206/?ref=group_header)for a bit of fun from August 1st til Halloween ....

Foundation paper piecing is definitely involved but it looks like fun ... and who knows I might go seriously off piste and applique!!

Anyone care to join in?

Well I joined this but the organizer and I have had a falling out.

She kept removing my post linking to my album of fabrics.
I asked her why and apparently I'm not allowed to use charms in my quilt!

I told her that she probably wouldnt like me appliqueing many of the blocks either and then told her as she seemed to be restricting my freedom of expression, I was ... as the Dragons say ...out!

Im hoping for a refund for the patterns I bought but am not holding out much hope.

Post by: Iminei on August 06, 2019, 12:10:00 PM
Well as I have been excommunicated by the Witchfinder General of the Epic Halloween Quiltalongathon ....
I have decided, as I already bought the patterns and some truly awesome fabrics that I will continue on in Iminei Jones's Awesome Halloweenasreamaquiltalongathon.

I will be posting my progress in my ALBUM

https://photos.app.goo.gl/HPgZwk8fqf5Lvsrq7

which everyone is free to look at with the first pictures being my newly acquired fabrics and

Shock!
Horror!!
Probe!!!

the charms I wish to add to my quilt which caused me to be excommunicated from the original group in the first place !!!!!

Although the rules of that group are ....

1, Be Kind and Courteous
We're all in this together to create a beautiful project . Treating everyone with respect and kindness is required.
2
No Promotions or Spam
Give more than you take to this group. Self-promotion, shop promotion, spam and links aren't allowed.

There was apparently a third, unwritten rule of the Group

3.
Thou must not deviate from the plan and use charms!

I was told in no uncertain terms I couldn't use 'jewellery', as the Gropenfuhrer phrased it, in my quilt.

Well I am going to ..... as its my quilt!

And as this is now my own lil group, albeit of one, I will be able to let you know what and where the fabrics came from too ....

Yet again I find myself in a quilting group of One.... but please feel free to join me if you wish,

Some creators really do have a stick up their arse. I remember a knitting pattern designer decreeing that you couldn't knit her pattern in a different yarn from the one it was intended for  :o

I like the pattern very much, Spooky Queen that I am.

Keep calm, keep quiet and do your own thing, most of all enjoy.

So I tried the paper pieced spider .... hmmmm ....

Well I wasted a lot of time and too much fabric and decided that I enjoy sewing and am not going to turn this into a chore ... so binned it and voila a lil time  later I have a 9 1/2" appliqued (and padded ... get me, breaking ALLLLLL the rules) spider block ... He's even got hairy legs!

Even the yarn manufacturer's patterns don't say that, just that they won't take any responsibility if it all goes pear shaped because a different yarn was used.

Halloween stuff isn't really to my taste, but what the heck - if you want charms and bling and other 'jewellery' on it go for it.  Patterns are for guidance, that's all.

Love, love, love the spider - that group doesn't know what they are missing! Similar to Brenda, Halloween isn't really my thing, but I'm very much looking forward to what you are creating here.

She hasnt thrown me out per se ....
just turned off my ability to post anything within the group because I've been such a bad, bad girl!

I bought the spider pattern, most of the rest are free, but that was from the person who first ran the pattern ... this girl has decided she is Lord of all she surveys but there doesn't seem to be  much guidance from her ... as the complete pattern is already out there people are, as people do, jumping ahead and making blocks ... like me!

There is an absolutely glorious Ring of Coffins pattern for a couple of £ ... that is divine! Based on Dresden Plates ?

If it's based on Dresden plates then you should be able to reverse-engineer it.  Even without seeing it I'm pretty sure it will only be down to the shape of the outside petals and probably cutting the inside end of the petals down so that each one is coffin shaped.

Just draw one of those petals, use a protractor or a wedge ruler to get the angle accurate, add the quarter inch seam allowance all round and that's it.  Use two standard hexagonal pencils taped together, use one to trace the stitchig line and the other will automatically draw the cutting line.

I would do it like EPP Iminei. They have obviously thread basted theirs but I would glue it - sewline glue works the best if you have it. Otherwise any cheap washable Pritt stick will be fine.

Those faces have all come from the Alexander Henry fabric range. I love the quirkiness of their fabrics and have often been tempted to buy them but have refrained as I couldn’t think of a use for them.

But how do you get the cardboard template out after sewing/glueing the shapes down?
Title: Re: Imineis very own Halloweenascreamaquiltalongathon
Post by: BrendaP on August 08, 2019, 08:53:26 AM
If it's a wall hanging leaving the card in will probably leave the 'coffins' looking more boxlike, but if it's a quilt to be used conventionally use paper so that you can tear it out before making the sandwich.

Post by: wrenkins on August 08, 2019, 09:15:09 AM
Back in the dim and distant past I seem to remember my pal sewing around wee pieces of paper but not 'to' them. She sort of folded the fabric over the back and stitched the corners to hold it until she had joined the bits together.
The paper template then just slipped out and was reusable.

I have come to a realisation and a decision ....

1) I LOATHE foundation paper piecing  ... Its messy, its wasteful and its tedious! 3 things which have led to me deciding that

2) I will applique the rest of this quilt.

This is the last (partly) paper pieced block I shall make in this quilt

In terms of removing the paper from EPP quilts you just rip them out - this is why flienks easiest! If seen in you have to snip the basting stitches then pull it yada yada - boring and hard work!

I love FPP my profile pic is about 60” square and all FPP but it does tend to use more fabric than applique.

I was going to suggest googling Harry Potter book shelf quilts for more free FPP patterns that might be suitable but maybe not 😂

I think its planning on being 48" x 60" ...

Those blocks will be 6 1/2" sq, and 6 1/2" x 9 1/2" (x 2) and 6 1/2" x 12 1/2".

Im a bit uncertain how to make the coffins ???  :S  so skipped that block and spent the weekend making these in its place ...
Can anyone out there give me some pointers?

Cut the petals with regular 1/4 inch seam allowances and stitch them together conventionally and press, then applique the 'flower' to the base fabric.  The EPP for the centre and the faces.

Title: Re: Imineis very own Halloweenascreamaquiltalongathon
Post by: BrendaP on August 12, 2019, 19:47:03 PM
The reason it's gone wrong is accuracy - or rather lack of.

It's designed with 16 coffins, so each of them, if the sides were extended to the centre of the ring would end with a point of 22.5 degrees.  Your coffins probably have 21.5 or 22 degrees.

The way to correct it is to shave off a minute wedge from each side - about two threads at the wide end tapering to nothing, or you might be able to just wrap the fabric around the papers again but with slightly less tension on the wide end.

Before you do that though, are you sure that you couldn't just join the 16 pieces together and steam press the life out of it (pun not intended!)?

Post by: Iminei on August 13, 2019, 05:47:37 AM
I will try and sew it together as is with the extra one in ???? and press the hell out of it as you say.

I printed the templates onto freezer paper but then the printer started having a hissy fit so I then traced them ... but if you cut out slightly off it will always end up slightly off I suppose ... but I like them and enjoyed the process ... but then the hand-sewing didnt have to be perfect ... so slip-stitching next ???  :S

Post by: Iminei on August 14, 2019, 07:12:17 AM
Pattern ??? You think I'm following a pattern ???? hahahahahahhaaha

(picks herself off the floor and brushes the threads out of her hair)

Nope, no pattern, I would like more occupants but its not the sort of fabric I have in my stash ... these came from the one piece of Halloween fabric I bought at FOQ that did have 'faces'.

If any of you have got any bits of fabric with suitable occupants ... (I'm not looking for wacky witches if you know what I mean) measuring around 1 1/2" x 2" I would be very grateful if you could send it Dorsetwards .... Although the ring is now sewn on ..... (apart from the errant one, still wondering what to do there) I can still add occupants ....

Starts thinking of printing a pic of he that wont be named onto a piece of photofabric ...hmmmmmm

So King Tut is now stitched in place and the block is complete, it will measure 18 1/2", the largest single block, so will have only about an inch around the edge of the furthest coffin ...

So all well and good on the ring of coffins score (tho I am still looking for occupants if you have any that need interring Gals, just need enough fabric around the face to wrap around the freezer paper window template comfortably )

But yesterday, Puzzler came over and we had a playday ... She bought a project of hers and I dillydallied with another spider, starting an entirely new quilt ...(Yes really! and Yes, I know!) but decided on building my haunted house block ..... I even for a brief mad second or three looked at the PP destructions before sanity regained its grip and off I went!

Ta Dah! My haunted house ... measuring about 9 1/2" x 12 1/2"

This is going to be fabulous, I love the king tut and the haunted house is inspired. Methinks that this is going to be somewhat better than the original "Quiltalongathon" :)

One lonely lil barn bat block ... 6 1/2"

Hes's pieced (YAY) and I used gash fabrics, for this practice block.
The background fabric was a stark white so I tea dyed it ... just in case he make the grade and remains in the finished quilt.

Im gradually understanding how to put this block together so you have mistakes up there as well, but am enjoying it very much.

Its Pieced ...YAY ... and I did wonder about doing a one off BOM of this in preparation for Halloween in a month or so's time.

What I do understand is that a black bat on a dark background, no matter how beautiful a blue, purple or whatever coloured fabric, will not show up ... so I changed one to a grey bat ... What do you think ...likey??? No likey???

Should I do a few more grey ???

and of course there is always one rebel!!!!

Well my part was extremely important @Lilian  ..

Firstly I bought the design, then I threaded the machine and then, and this bit is crucial .. you might like to note it down,
I pressed a button!

So, does it feel like your work ( I always wonder that about having something longarmed )?
Does it feel like you have just used patterned fabric or do you feel you had input?
