Some pouch mania again…in assorted fabric!

When I am in a sewing slump, I just sew a batch of zippered pouches to get my sewing mojo back! They are quick and easy and come together in no time🙂

The colour options and variations are immense…

Some neons…I just love neons! Be it thread, fabric or a pop of neon in a project. They just make everything look so Modern.

The 21-30 set went off without much ado! No major events…

I have learnt to be mindful of my seams and that has made all the difference…the block looks more regular and uniform in size,shape and orientation!
Since this is going to be an Ombre quilt, I need to incorporate more white and grey in my blocks.

Some Riley Blake kind of canvas always makes my heart flutter and I just cannot resist buying🙂 Well! That’s actually true to all fabric…one resolve I haven’t been able to maintain across the years.
This might become totes, bags, God knows what! When it comes to fabric, I am the one that ‘buys first and thinks next’😉

Bought 2metres each from the wonderful Pabha Mathew at Quiltaholics. I have bought fabric from her on numerous occasions and each time her professionalism and timeliness has left a pleasant feeling.

Rushing to be on time !

Recently I discovered this lovely sampler quilt along by Blossom Heart Quilts. Its HSTs, how could I resist from jumping in. But its a slow,long project. I surely didn’t have the time to make it slow.Completed the blocks in record time…

Here are all the blocks in the afternoon sun!

And the individual blocks…

This looks like I am doing HSTs for the first time!

Here the points are matching a little better!

This is my favourite block…the look and feel is so modern🙂

block-10

A soothing green block and love the fact that its by Molli Sparkles. I have been working with the Sunday Stash idea for more that a year now…

A different colour scheme was required and the block looks much better than the previous ones.

Finally the last one just before the deadline🙂

Learnt a lot in the quick 6 HST blocks I made. The initial ones look like first timers. But surely, as I progressed from block 7 to 12, the latter ones look better. The nestling of seams works wonderfully to reduce bulk.

The two tools I would say are a must for perfect HSTs are a quilting scale and rotary cutter…and dont forget to press at every stage. If you follow the rules, the blocks fall in place instantly.

Some more fabric from The Artisan Collective, when I met the proprietor Rohini Last weekend…

Printed denim and shark cove fabric…whats not to love about them!

Along with some feathers…bring on the goodness! Mount Fuji in blue and paper lanterns have that Japanese Oriental feel about them🙂

Such wonderful additions to the stash…

Blocks 11 to 20:

This is the second tranche in the Tula Pink Sampler Quilt along which is hosted by @Gnomeangel on Instagram. I posted about the first 10 blocks here and my personal journey on how it all began for me.

Here are the next 10 blocks. I am glad that its running on schedule. I have to admit that Block 15 was the most challenging. I had planned to sew and post it in the evening, instead of the morning as per my normal schedule. After office, we had to step out for a long dinner with my husband’s cousin and by the time I realised that the day’s block was due it was 11.30pm. To top it, I was feeling terribly unwell. With only half an hour to spare, I rushed through the block from end to end. Lesson learnt, I need to Plan in advance and keep things ready! Dont want to be in the same situation again.
