Loved this travel themed fabric Chezvies shop. So this got promptly added to my stash to become a travel themed bag when I garner enough courage to venture into the bag making world.

Travel themed fabric

My quilting friends have assured me that bags (at least the simple ones) are doable. ‘Tis just a matter of taking the plunge 🙂

I am really happy with the super prompt service from Elvira, the owner.

I am glad to see my Pinterest board growing in size and increasingly more people are liking the pins I gather. I just recently reached 10,000 followers so its deserves a little mention on the blog 🙂

Hubby went traveling and got home some Quilt fabric as gift. For a quilter what could be a better gift than coordinated fabric. These would make lovely coffee table runners or coasters or maybe just plain table mats.

Love the coordinated colours and print. There are dozens more…stay tuned to see them over the next few Sundays 🙂

This is a mini quilt that I made for a swap #wordswap2017 , the first swap of the year. Last year I took a break from swaps- both international and national(well! almost) and this year am back to the scene but have become very picky given the paucity of time.

Wordswap2017

I tried mixing the black&whites to get a textured look background and the pinks go from dark to light in the background. My swap partner is someone from far far away and the last time I had someone from the country I had to send to, it took ages and no tracking was updated. Hopefully over time, I will get the knack of mixing colours appropriately.

Hope its better this time and she receives it on time. The word ‘Love’ is something my partner had requested for.

Quilt Name: EPP Wordswap2017 mini quilt

I received this lovely mini from my partner in Germany.

Wordswap2017

Since these swaps work in a round robin fashion, I send to one quilting partner(cant revel until she receives it) and I received from the wonderful Kirstn(@diestoeckeline on Instagram) from Germany. This mini now adors my centre table in the living room so guests coming in can see how wonderfully talented my Quilting friends are from across the globe.

Time to buy some zippers and then make some zippered pouches 😊
Four dozen of multicoloured zippers are just the way to begin a relaxed weekend…

Get ready to see a lot of zippered pouches…do you want tutorials for all the zippered pouches I make?

2017 Sunday Stash 8

Tagging this to Sunday Stash will Molly Sparkles

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!

violet-snail

indigo-snail

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!

yellow-snail

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 🙂

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 🙂
