Fat quarter


This is the last set of fabrics for the first half of the year. A lovely set of 3 Fat Quarters from Kausalya Pandit from The Turquoise Paisley.

Along with it, bought a traditional silver leaf stand for paan(beetle leaf had as a digestive post a heavy Indian meal). It was Kausalya’s idea to use this as a bobbin stand. Love this new acquisition.

An impromptu plan over the weekend became a lovely rainy drive in the ghats. Awesome fun,food and quilty friends over the weekend 🙂

Being a swap mama is awesome fun but its a hell lot of work as well. I got this bundle of 5 Fat quarters for being the swap mama in the F.R.I.E.N.D.S swap at The Material Girls. More on the swap details later, now for some eye candy…

These 3 FQs are quilt grade and would finally get converted to a couple of pouches or small projects when paired with matching solids.

A fortnight back, when I was in Pune to meet my friends, my lovely quilting friend, Kausalya Pandit gifted me this set of lovely Rainbow fat quarter bundle! Now am looking for a project in which I can use this lovely bundle. She has the most awesome sense of combining fabrics. Hope I do justice to this wonderful bundle of love.

Shruti, From 13woodhouseroad had Bella Parade’2015 on her blog and tested out the thread combinations on her set of FQs. There were about 8 straight line stitches on each FQ. She was unable to unravel the stitches for lack of time and asked if I’d want the FQs. I jumped up with joy!! Which fabric loving girl ever says no to fabric, EVER…

Soon my house-help and I unraveled the stitches and one week down the line, I have a full FQ bundle of Bella solids ! yeah yeah 🙂

This is how they looked originally with 8 straight line stitches across the breadth of the fabric…

Had a wonderful Saturday, shopping for fabric and meeting quilting friends. First Prajakta, who quilts at Green Leaf Quilts and I met at Badshah, the famous falooda place in Mumbai. No journey starts without good food! So here is our Shirazi Falooda.I had met Prajakta there for the first time early last year, when she had come down from Bahrain and had gladly accepted to take me around Mumbai and show me the fabric district here, Mangaldas market. IMG_3691 It’s a fairly different story that I haven’t used the fabric we bought last time…ha ha A girl needs to have a fabric stash for the sake of having it, irrespective of how rarely she sews! What if she gets an idea at the middle of the night and doesn’t have a fabric to match !!

This Sunday brought along some batting for me. I went to the amazing shop at Bandra called The Hab

I had actually taken the little one for a fun lunch outside and on our way back, we stopped at The Hab. What an amazing place to be. Wish I could spend some more time and look through the lovely collection of books there. Maybe some other time!

I got this batting(wow! it holds shape!) which comes in in 1meter cuts, just apt to make bags and pouches…
Get ready to see tonnes of pouches from tomorrow!

I also got a fat quarter of floral fabric!
Not very much like my choice, but would look lovely with some matching colourful zippers in pouches!!
