I love designer fabric and have been eyeing some Riley Blake chevrons for a while. Finally had the opportunity to get 2 metres of Riley Blake chevron and one metre of black orinetal print.

The chevrons will turn into cushion covers, hopefully soon and the other will just get added to my overflowing fabric stash:)
A girl needs to have her own designer stash, to dig in and make a project at the middle of the night when creativity strikes!

The fabric is bought from Prabha Mathew on fb.

This is a lunch bag I made for the Bernina India lunch bag contest . And since the time I have put it up on facebook, my friends have come up asking if they can have one like this. Its an amazing feeling to attempt something for the first time and be appreciated for it:)

For people who have seen my work, this is not the first time that they see a paper pieced cupcake…I made a baby quilt a while back with three of these cupcakes in pink and blue:)

In case you want to make one for yourself or a dear one, the instructions can be found here . A few creative elements that I have added are the pieced cupcake, the flying geese and some FMQ. I like the pink satin FMQ on the white surface. I totally love the little cupcake charm that I could find in my stash to add to the button loop closure.

Am on my way to make a blue one with more Flying geese…one for the road I say !

I am declaring my June goal publicly:)

Here is a quilt I started end of April. May was more or less a long vacation month, not just in terms of quilting but kid’s summer vacation…exotic location..2 weeks off kind of vacation!
Almost little or no sewing happened during the month.

This is where my chevron quilt was left a month back and this is where I pick up the threads from…literally! I am trying a different technique of making a chevron quilt as against my favourite process of trying using HSTs.

Trying to learn new skills:)

I love it when a cloudy day appears in the middle of summer. On one such day I stepped out to buy myself some hobby goodies; a dozen zippers came home with me. A set of coloured zippers to lift up my spirit further calling out to be converted to swing projects (other than pouches, of course!)

Some more goodies from my quilting friends! Oh! How I love them and the fabric they bring me. Couple of these are odd cuts from from a workshop I attended last autumn and they have made it to my cupboard now…

Trust my fabric obsessed friends to run away with all remaining scraps after the workshop. How I love fighting with them for fabric:) only to be later returned with extra fabric ha ha ha
