needle artistry from Quiltocalypse

Here's a roundup of quilting and sewing-related tattoos from across the interwebs. I have several tattoos, but none of this nature. I don't have any more planned, but I wouldn't be opposed to it if I could find or come up with a design I had to have. Enjoy!

Catching Up from Hulahoop

It's been awhile since I've posted and my quilting has taken a back seat.  I did finish the Dresden Fan below.  It was the first paper piecing project I've done and I had a good time doing it.

My second paper piecing project is the pineapple.  I got it on the frame and nearly halfway quilted when my machine starting giving me fits with the top thread breaking every few inches.  I tried everything -- changed the needle, tried different threads,  futzed with the tension, cleaned, oiled the machine.  After several weeks, I gave up and took it ...

These are great! Dollmaker Mimi Kirchner found a great use for those cheesy toile prints: dye the white part to a skin tone, and make tattooed dolls!
