How to quilt it?

I am working on this geese quilt. It's going to be huge one,  86" x 90". I've been looking at several tutorial on how to do big quilt in my home sewing machine. Since I don't think so I will be able to tug and move it around, and with my spondylitis problem, it's  definitely  NO.


I found a pretty butterfly cotton for the back 


I have Jera's book Quilt as you Made modern but I am not sure how to do mine. SInce it's going to be 3 parts, Solid panel on both sides and one long geese panel in the middle. 

Then I saw this tutorial by Marci Girl Designs which I think it's doable. Well it will involve hand- sewing but that is better that hauling the whole quilt in one go on to the machine.

here some pics from Marci Girl Designs:

And all these little things

Your hand fits in mine like it's made just for me
But bear this in mind, it was meant to be
And I'm joining up the dots with the freckles on your cheeks
And it all makes sense to me...


I know you've never loved the crinkles by your eyes when you smile
You've never loved your stomach or your thighs, the dimples in your back at the bottom of your spine
But I'll love them endlessly


I won't let these little things,
Slip out of my mouth
But if I do...It's you....Oh it's you...They add up to
I'm in love with you...

And all these little things

Fabric Shopping in Seoul

I will not bore you with my stories, let the pics do the talking ...


yup that's me, I went to Korea with my friend, Mita. And the above pic was on my way to Happy Quilt in Dongdaemun market, Seoul- Korea. And look what greeted me once I came out from the lift <3



luckily I just had a little time before the shop closed otherwise I'd have blown my cards and would not know how to carry them back to India :P

My loot
look at these beauty
pre cuts
Happy Quilt 
many shops selling Japanese quilt kits and fabrics

More of Dongdaemun Market is here  and if you happen to have lots of time you can visit Happy Quilt in Jije (which I didn't ). 



and that's me again, tired and hungry (I was having kimbab :P )  but extremely Happy with my bundles of joy. 

Well, Bo Derek is right when she said

"Whoever said money can't buy happiness
simply didn't know where to go shopping." 

Until then,

Happy Quilting
