Week 4 of January

I bought  this 200 blocks book last year and this is one block I bookmarked. 
I really love this one


I esp. love the tiny star in the middle.


Let see how I will progress here. This is going to be my "one block at a time" project. Like maybe 3 or 4 blocks in a month or maybe less. 

********************************

Aaaand I finally finished the TOP of this quilt. Started last year but somehow never got around to join the blocks.
too much of distraction 0_0


it will be finish at 40" x 50" 

I am still thinking what to put at the back, maybe a grey chevron will look good. 


and another quilt is basted. Plan to do the quilting next week after finish my custom orders


***************************
and my son is growing =_= 
how time flies!! 
He is taller than me now
listening to rock music
and best part is  now we can sing Bryan Adams and GnR songs together
though I am still trying to convert him to Bon Jovi <3 



*************************

Another thing I did was I started doing  machine embroidery. 

I have few orders where customers want their wallet personalized and  I thought might as well I make a good use of my machine :D

I am still trying to figure out how to make it work with rayon thread. This husqvarna viking Topaz 20 seems to hate rayon thread :( . I am asking in few of my quilting groups and hopefully one or two tricks will help me ^^. 



The bigger patches are  for custom quilt I am making for our high school reunion next summer. Yeah yeah...I am adding another WIP in my list. I haven't decided on the design as yet, but I think it's going to be a traditional blocks.

and I am also playing with leftover jelly rolls cos I want to try one poly batting sent by one supplier. I am not quite happy with the batting tho. I am still looking for a better one. 



so that's my story of the week. 
What's your story?

Until then,

Happy Quilting
