I discovered a new fabric shop called Fabriclore and as they had a recent sale I picked up a couple of metres of fabric from them.

I love all kinds of Chevron so the black one was a must buy and then came the Indigo with a new denim wash finish, which I must is very much in the news nowadays.

This weekend marks a rather functional kind of acquiring…

First thing on the list is a self healing mat. The earlier one was so old it wouldn’t heal. Next in line is some yardage of plain white. The white is primarily aimed at completing a chevron quilt which is stuck since the last couple of months due to lack of white yardage!

To add some colour, I also ordered some bright butterfly fabric from The Material Girls on facebook.

This set of 10 blocks was a rather late-night kind of set; 6 out of 10 were sewn after the work day was over. With the online community showering as much love and affection as they did in the earlier blocks, this set also got completed as per schedule with a sew and post each day!

Half the journey is over. 50 blocks completed! Now for the next 50…

This is my first sampler quilt and it feels great to be moving ahead steadily as per schedule.

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…

Hubby’s friend had a baby daughter recently! Reason enough for me to make a quilt🙂

This is a simple quilt top using charm squares. While I was at it, I made a matching cushion cover to go with it as well.While this to be posted to their city of residence, am really eager that the quilt and cushion cover reach them at the earliest and I get to see how the little one looks all wrapped in the pink quilt with the cushion somewhere thrown in the background.

Nothing like watching a child use your creation🙂


Here, I have stitched the sides before quilting, much like basting the sides so it doesn’t move during quilting o binding! A little tip but helped a lot…


Nothing like watching a quilt loved, used and washed and re-used over the years…

Love the English rose feel of the quilt. It came together rather fast with just the charms and sashing to sew. I didn’t want to add a broad border that would take away or clash with the overall quilt design.

Hence the binding is a very thin 1″ binding. Am glad the way it turned out, fit, tight and prim. Was a great effort around the corners, but it was totally worth the effort.

Quilt Name: English Rose
Quilt Size: 40″ X 40″
Fabric: local Indian
Binding: Double sided 1″ tight narrow binding
Other details: Is a gift with a matching cushion cover
FMQ: flower detailing
Thread: Calypso off white which has a lovely sheen about it.

Met a wonderful online quilty friend, Rohini Juneja, in real life for the first time; braved the Mumbai rain and traveled 30km across town to meet her…but it was so worth it. We have known each other for over two years and I have bought fabric from her on numerous occasions…always been satisfied and overjoyed with the quality of fabric she supplies. She owns an online fabric store called The Artisan Collective! Go check it out …

This is some water resistant fabric for snack bags…its not readily available here so am glad that she is able to source it🙂


Some fruit printed fabric…lovely colourful lemons for my ‘quilty partner in crime’Prajakta for tabel mats. She has been looking for it for a while now. While I am at it, will make a couple for my own table too🙂

Gifts! Lovely handmade gifts🙂

She got me this lovely pack of fabric and buttons. I clicked it on my dinning table, well! one point, that table cloth of mine is also from her online store🙂



Here is a pic of the pouch I made for Rohini in Mendocino by Heather Ross and some Japanese goodies as she loves Japan…and everything Japanese. She came along with her super cute kid, Kabir and awesomely elegant mom, Girija. The latter was my swap partner in the last FQ swap and I had sent her this Mendocino Heather Ross pouch( Again! cant seem to get over the range🙂 ). Also met Aarti, another quilter from Mumbai who work I greatly admire for her neatness )
