{TUTORIAL} Adding Zipper Pocket

Hello,
The last two days was euphoria for me. It's the first time I got published in an online media and that too on Ecwid Blog! I was contacted by them by email early this month and was so excited about it. You can read my Behind the Scene Story in Ecwid Blog. I hope I can inspire more mothers who decided to left 9 to 5 job and pursue her dreams.

Now let's get down to the fun stuff. I got email from Patti, asking about how to add zipper pocket on the Phone Pouch. Thank you so much Patti!! Adding zipper pouch is very easy. If you already got the pattern  here is what you have to do. (if you haven't,  you can get it at the end of this post)

After you cut all your Exterior, Lining and Interfacing pieces as per pattern instructions, cut 2 extra lining pieces of Main Panel.

1. Fuse the interfacing on to the wrong side of the back exterior piece. Mark 1.5" down on one of the short end and cut.

Do the same with one of the lining piece.

2. Put the lining and exterior pieces…

Quilting Bee

This one I made for Vidya, the queen bee of the month of September. I call it a tetris block. Let see if I can come up with something else. Since the queen bee doesn't give any specific instruction just it has to be MODERN with lots of NEGATIVE SPACE. So till the month is up, hopefully I'll be able to make something else.


This wonky log cabin I made 2 months back for Vidya

And this one is for Veena. 

This is my first time joining a quilting bee and I'm having a lot of fun making and learning new block every month. Currently I'm in 2 bees with Desi Quilters, the second one I join is called Sunny Bee. Quoting from the blog "The theme is the 'Sun' and all that it means to you. Its all about living life 'Sunny Side Up". So, yes, it's going to be a lot more FUN...
Happy Quilting


N more fabric

OK, now it's official...I'm a fabricaholic. I vowed to buy less fabric and yet when I saw these ones today at the market I just couldn't resist it  x_x

I simply love the prints and can't stop my self. My favorite is the pink one. Which one is yours?
Happy Quilting

Fruity Orange Quilt

Yes, that's what I call this one. Its been a UFO for a year. I was hooked on Amanda Jean's blog with her easy to follow  QALs n then out of nowhere I decided to try this 36 patch QAL  . There was supposed to be a yellow blocks  too but I ran out of fabric so I just used these 2 colors.
It was fun to make...and to see I actually have the guts to piece all those blocks is still shock me even now...LOL. this is one of my first attemp on serious quilting. And the biggest so far. Do I sound proud?? Well..I do LOL..
So here are few pics of my Fruity Orange



Now, it's sitting pretty is my room waiting for the weather to get colder then I can snuggle up under this one ^^
oh and if you want to see how others are doing you can visit Crazy Mom's Quilt Flickr Page. It's just so inspiring to see what others are doing in Flickr ^^.
Until then...Happy Quilting





Cathedaral Windows continues QAL # 3

This is the last one of Cathedral Windows QAL series at Desi Quilters. It's using traditional method which is my favorite because it really has a different charm when finished. Though the ironing part is a bit tidious (at least for me..LOL)..but I love the end result of this method. If you like to make one, hop over to Chumkie's blog to see the detail instruction.



and to assemble the cushion cover I use tutorial from  WARMTH IN THE NORTH which give a perfect finish for my cushion. Now, I'm thinking of making a big one with this and I can use up all my scrap for that...hmm....

and this the 2 CW Cushion made using different method

Happy Quilting
