Finally I decided to take the Trip Around the World...

a scrappy one at that ^_^

 I've been reading all over the blogland and saw everyone post about this Scrappy Trip Around the World, which really inspiring!! that I MUST do this. 
This is going to be a long term project though, but I'm sure I'm going to enjoy the ride ^_^

So, here my first block or shall I say "STOP" ? ^_^

I love the red print, such a cheerful print. The fabric was a left over from the dress I made for a client.

Quilting Kaleidoscope

I think it's not too late to take note of what I've completed in 2012, in term of quilting. The most important landmark was when I started join online quilting community on Facebook, Indian MQG and Desi Quilters. 
Esp. with the later group which keep my busy the whole month with it's tougher challenge each month, QAL, quilting bees. The constant encouragement from fellow DQs made me push my self harder to better my skill. 


If I look at each one of them, I still remember every detail of work that's gone into it. Yes, every stitch has its own story...which will always remain with me ^_^


More of my work can be seen in my Facebook Page , Google+, Twitter 
or Instagram 


Yes, 2012 has been a roller coaster journey, 
I hope 2013 will bring more of important landmarks. I have few things in mind that I want to achieve this year.  Well, I can't say it cos I'm afraid it'll jinx my plan *wink wink*

Until then

Happy Sewing



Apparently...

I have forgotten again to post few of my finished quilt. Last year was quite a hectic one for me, especially the second half. Especially with my over active online quilting group, Desi Quilters. That's the place if you want to get inspired by sooo many talented ladies, from India and abroad. 

It was during the initial days of DQ, that Tina asked if anyone want to start Quilt-a-Long and I just raised my hand *virtually* and said I'd love to do one. Actually it was a challenge for my self, I wanted to see how far I can go or whether I can pull it off. To cut the story short, in the end I did the STAR QAL. Some of the participants pics can be found on DQ's FB group page 
And since one of my bff in Indonesia wanted one square table cloth, so I thought this star qal would be a great one. I ended up giving 4 Star Block tutorials and came out with this one.


on the sling *my fave*


and as my friend said, she wanted a "branded" one ^_* 


I didn't put batting in this one, since it's going to be a tablecloth.
She was very happy with it...so was I ^_^


Happy Sewing



Feeling Pinky

I have few orphan blocks as a result of trying out new block designs or some fail bee/BOM or QAL which I follow online. The other day I was looking at the box where I kept all my orphan blocks and found these 2 pink ones. So I thought this will make a nice cushion covers. And of course they did. I did some fmq-ing and quite happy with the result.







I was mulling over what to put as a back cover, either polkadots or solid. Then I decided to do it with solid grey and put a strip of the same pink fabric. 



I still have few more orphan blocks, maybe I'll end up making more cushion covers or mini mat. It makes a pretty gift too, don't you think? 

These two cushion covers available in my ETSY SHOP. Grab them while it still hot ^_*

Until then

Happy Sewing





A New Beginning



“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.

So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
