Sitcom Readers’ Projects- A look at embossing and quilting!

I just love receiving emails from my readers who have tried out my patterns and projects!  This past week, I received some great photos of readers projects that I would like to share with you.  They did amazing work!  One reader not only took on the Enchanted Fish project, but went even further with her own patterns.  Another sent me a photo of her nearly completed Batiks Gone Wild Quilt!  Come see!

Reader, Nanci Nottingham, sent me several photos of her latest projects.  She began by taking on the Enchanted Fish Project, created by embossing a disposable cookie sheet and then adding in 3D metal work and metallic paints.  This is her beautiful finished project!

Nanci went on to create some of her own designs!  Just beautiful!

Nanci says, “I just have to say — AH-MAZING! I signed up and received the tin fish template. I had NO idea it would turn out as wonderful as it did!! Nobody believes it started off as a foil cookie sheet. so now…. they are all coming to the house with pictures they’ve printed to test their imaginations and skills in creating some “metal art”!!! Thanks so much! it was not only fun, but also relaxing to create the 3D Fish!!”

This particular technique has been done on the Sitcom a few times now.  Along with the fish pattern, I also have available the free patterns for Winter Fairy and Faux Tin Tiles!

My Batiks Gone Wild pattern was released on September 1, and I am starting to get photos of finished and nearly finished quilts now!  This beautiful version created by reader, Marietjie Webster, shows a slightly different color combination.  She did a fabulous job and that beautiful quilt is sure to be a keepsake!

Like my previous patterns, Summer Jewels and Windmills at Night, this pattern appears complicated, but is actually very simple to put together. A beginning quilter can easily tackle this project, and a more experienced quilter can easily finish this 43″ x 58″ lap quilt in a weekend.

You can go to my Craftsy Pattern page and order easily from there.  You do not have to be a member of Craftsy to order!

Love the fabrics?  Just as I did with my previous quilt pattern series, I am teaming up with Patricia from Discount Sewing Supply to present to you a kit for making this beautiful quilt.  So be sure to check out her site for details!
