I love green!!

It's been raining for the last 2 weeks, though the weather become more tolerable but the lawn become muddy. Luckily the rain always comes at night, at least we get to see the sunshine during the day. And the flowers have gone bad to my MIL's dismay. But I love rainy season, cos even though it's humid at least the garden is greener. 


and who doesn't love green?


Yes, I finally completed this one. Simple table runner using charms and a slim blue border make it more charming.

The runner is available for grabs in my Etsy Shop


I love the feel of mulmul cotton in quilt. It's so soft. it's challenging to work with cos it's stretchy, maybe I should use more starch next time I work with mulmul.

So, that was last week, this week I've finished baby quilt for a friend, which 2 years overdue (ha!!)
I wanted to make the quilt when her baby was born but then you know....it's got delayed.

I washed and ironed it today and will take a proper pics tomorrow and hopefully will write a blog post about it.

if not, you can find my pics and mini stories in my Instagram, Facebook or Google+

Until then,

Happy Quilting








Warm and Cold Pinwheel Table Runner

This winter, it blows warm and cold. One day the temperature will dip as low as 10C and the next day it will be 21C. Well, for me, who grew up in tropical friendly weather Indonesia, to be in 10C is like living in a igloo. The kids are laughing at me, cos I'm bundled up in heaps of clothes plus woolen cap.

I told you in previous post, that I love pinwheel. So now it's done. I don't know why I love working with triangles, I found it very challenging. This pinwheel was supposed to be my second entry for the Indian MQG January's Challenge, but then I couldn't resist the baby blue and pink. I don't know whether it's still qualified as a WARM? what do you think?

Another one I finished today is my 3rd Quilt Block for my Friendship Quilt. I call it "whirlwind love". The original plan was to collect enough blocks to make mini quilt for wall hanging. But I hope, other participants will make at least 3 blocks so it will be a bigger quilt.

This one I made based on quilt I saw in magazine. It was just one part of the big quilt. I took the design and instead of plain square at the top left I put pinwheel (again!) there and in the bottom right. It gives quite a effect, doesn't it? It's quite challenging this one, since the mag didn't give the measurement, so I have to count it my self to make it into 12" squares. Hopefully I can make a simple tutorial later on...meanwhile now my mind is onto finishing my almost-forgotten Quilt Along #shame on me#

Until then, Happy Crafting ~_~
