My friend recently had a baby girl and named her Mira. She is the cutest little baby I have seen(actually I have just seen the pictures, am yet to meet her). Having told myself that I will go and meet Mira only when I make her a quilt, am already too late in starting one. What good is a Quilting aunt who cannot make a baby quilt for her new born neice…ha ha ha

Mira's Triangle Quilt

Mira’s Triangle Quilt

So here we go. The idea is to make a simple triangle quilt(not simple for me as I will be trying a triangle quilt for the first time, but simple in the conventional sense of quilting). I bought an isoscles triangle ruler last month and have been wanting to use it since it arrived.

Fabric details: Some of my pink and green neons for this project.
Thread: Aurifil, nothing less than the best Egyptian cotton from Italy for teh little one
Size: 36X40″ tentatively
Name: Mira’s Triangle quilt

I will be using directions from this Quilt Along which I have eyed for long but have yet not been able to make a quilt.

I participated in the #GetYourQuiltyWishesGranted2 this year and yearned for some Tula Pink fabric. Last year I saw this on Instagram and thought it was too good to be true. This year I just plunged in…to see what was happening and all I can say is that I am totally overwhelmed by the response.

Two lovely ladies sent me Tula Pink fabric all the way from US and some more is on its way…

This bundle is sent by Patti Lapinsky, all the way from Florida🙂

I thought, if someone sent me any of the Tula Pink goodness, then I would keep and caress the beautiful fabric like maybe Gold or Diamond, ultimate use being in storage and never in use…ha ha ha.
But now with the amazingly generous online Quilting community, at the end of this, I will have enough to make a quilt along with some solids of course(cant have a quilt without solids, call it a mental block).

Hope I am able to pass on the generosity to the people I have volunteered to grant wishes🙂
Of course, after the demonetization issue settles down and I have cash to pay at the Post Office. Leading a predominately cashless life has its own set of challenges😦

I saw this modern Quilt on Pinterest and have long wanted to try it. Last month my team member had a baby boy and I have been fretting over what to gift her and her little one…
A modern quilt seems like just the right solution!

So here it is…Its just a Plan as of now. Should be done before month end!

If it gets completed on time, I would also like to make another one for a friend who recently had a baby girl. Currently, am just telling myself to not start too many projects and add to my never ending WIP list.

Elm Street Quilts







Its a lovely feeling to be progressing at the desired pace!

A block a day seems to be working till date and I have the last ‘Score to meet’ after this set. It has been a fun journey and I have learnt so much along the way. Be it precision cutting or careful sewing…be it trimming, pressing at every step or being cognizant of the seams, everything has been a learning.
Starting from the unintentional wonky blocks to the bright looking, perfectly square blocks now, much has been achieved and much remains.

I am really looking forward to the completed quilt. Although, at this stage, am not sure whether I want to add sashing or not!

I will just complete the blocks as per the desired dates and then decide on the Quilt layout.

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.

The quilt blocks have been progressing well and I have been posting one on Instagram as per schedule everyday. Its good fun and exciting at the same time. Given that one has to maintain a schedule, ensure the blocks are completed and posted on time, brings in a bit of Quilty discipline which is otherwise missing in my life.

I am eager to get the quilt finished and see how it turns out!
10 blocks done beyond the halfway mark🙂

All the blue fabric seems to come alive now…

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.
