India MQG April Challenge

"Our lives are like quilts - bits and pieces, joy and sorrow, stitched with love"

Here's the rule of IMQG's April Challenge Your challenge is to use the colours of the IMQG logo to make a quilt block that reflects what modern quilting means to you. We encourage you to stretch yourself and plan an interesting composition that represents your own unique voice. (And if this looks suspiciously similar to the Quiltcon block challenge, IT IS.)

So I decided to make this friendship braid  mini quilt . Cos just like the braid of different color, IMQG members  come from different background and even countries. But then we have the same passion: Quilting. We share, learn and encourage each other.






You don't have to be perfect in your cutting, cos like they say "there's no mistake in cutting , there's only more  opportunity for creativity". Any tiny bits of fabrics remnants can be made into something beautiful, even as simple as these humble coasters


Just like Scott Adams said : "Creativity is allowing your self to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep"




Until then....Happy Quilting






Quote of the day

"Ask not what your fabric can do for you, but what you can do for your fabric"

I was clearing up my scrap after doing this quilt top and found another polkadots scrap from this one and finally come up with these blocks:


disappearing nine patch

Yup..disappearing nine patch. In the beginning I was thinking of making another table runner, but I'm badly want to make a pouch...so pouches I made :)


quilted pouch

And I love how it turned out :)

Still have another blocks to sew into pouches..:) 

Until then...Happy Quilting


Finish the top

The progress of this one is a bit slow. I got distracted doing something else and kind of neglected this one. I love how it turn out. So Yesterday, I took it out from the cupboard, cut strips for the border and voila...


 can U spot the pinwheel?


I love the pinwheel in the middle. It's sort of hide n seek pinwheel. I've done the mini quilt with this design before. If you notice the border, I didn't do the usual, instead to stitch the white n red one first and than attach it to the quilt top. And I think I will use scrappy binding from the black and grey fabric. What do you think?
