Simply Square Quilt

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' 
You must do the thing you think you cannot do. "
~ Eleanor Roosevelt ~

I've been too scared to start making a big quilt, until the other day. It seems so hard to do the quilting part on my home machine. I had this king size polyester batting I brought from Indonesia 1.5 years ago. And it was sitting pretty in my wall cupboard waiting to be covered. Finally, the other day I completed one, a very simple design. I did a couple of unpicking, tagging and pulling and almost gave up cos there's always one part which gone wonky at the back. Then my IMQG friend, Tina, told me to "never look back" and I gain my confidence back. It took me two days to complete the quilting part (yay!)

I used scrappy binding there

for the back, I used cheery orange cotton fabric which was supposed to be for salwar kameez (Indian dress). It has continues Indian batik pattern. 

Now, can I say I graduated to the big quilting now? :D. I still need to finish my 36 patch QAL  :-/

until then...Happy Sewing
