This is the sixth week of the Garden Snail Quilt Snail Paced Slow-along Sew-along Gnomengel and thankfully I have been able to catch up. Next week, there is travel planned on my itinerary so there could be a break again. But so far so good…all 6 snails are ready in 6 rainbow colours!
One remains yet!

Learning from 1&2: The grey is too light and the snail body doesn’t stand out against the white backdrop.

blue-snail

green-snail

Learning from 2&3: The grey is fine and stands out against the white background but the material is polyster. Firstly, its difficult to sew and then it shrinks under and iron!

orange-snail

These are better but the wonky blocks need to improve.

A new travel fabric from Quiltaholics for a passport wallet. Love the print and the amount of fabric is just enough for a small pouch πŸ™‚

I am just amassing a lot of fabric wealth with the hope that someday I will be able to sew all that I want to from the stash πŸ™‚

This is a lovely half yard of Olaf fabric…Yes! the Olaf from frozen. My little one wants a bagpack from it and I have no clue how to make one.

I found a tutorial on the Birch fabric blog but that has cording and am yet to venture into that kind of complication in bag making. To be frank, I am just stumped…not much help from Pinterest either 😦

Looks like I will have to design my own pattern!

In the meantime, if you are reading this and have a link to any tutorial, please share it with me…thanks in advance!

This is an amazing find. I got this fabric in early January and quickly made a craft apron from it for an upcoming swap. You can see the details of the swap and the craft apron here.

So, this is a fabric find where the project came first and then comes the Sunday Stash post about acquiring the fabric πŸ™‚ hmmm…
That’s a first and a strange one at that.

This is a lovely thick canvas, perfect for making bags and cushions for quilty friends. I bought this from Quiltaholics around the wake of the new year and is about 2 metres in length. That’s a lot of fabric at 60″ width for multiple small projects.

The quilt top is finally ready and I cant tell you how happy I am. Not just because its the next logical step in quilt making but because this is where all the 100 blocks come together which I together before Halloween last year along with the #100days100blocks quilt along gang on Instagram.

This quilt top is huge…its 90X90″ and I have no clue what to back it with and how to quilt it on a domestic sewing machine. Here it is lying in all its majesty on my sofa:)

As of now, I am just basking in the happiness of the Quit Top being ready.

I was fortunate to test a few blocks for Quietplay on Instagram for her new series due for release by month end.

The word I tested was ‘QUILT’ and I love the way it turned out. I could never imagine that cursive writing was possible using paper piecing…what about all those curves! Butt Kristy has made it possible; the pattern is due for release by end of January.
