Magazines

Had a lovely opportunity to join a blog hop at Sew fresh quilts with Lorna on the cute dog blog hop. After posting pictures at the linky, I won these lovely magazines 😊 from QuiltMaker magazine. I am over the moon, especially so coz we do not get quilting magazines locally!

OMG!! I am over the moon. I responded to an Instagram feed from Aurifil and they sent me these goodies.

As they say, ” a colour card and some real thread”…I am a complete convert!

Let me now run to the sewing machine…with a happy dance! a spring in every step!

Every Cassius that saw me might just say ” ‘Tis Cinna. I do know him by his gait.
He is a friend.—Cinna, where haste you so? ”

And am off to join the Aurifil brigade :)

 

Had the good fortune to order a layer cake from Anu in assorted Indian fabric. It came wrapped like a gift pack and was an absolute delight to receive and open :)

Planning to make a Herringbone quilt based on the Tutorial at the Missouri Star Quilt Company!

The assorted pack would look lovely in a white background :)

Everyone loves a sale and more so when its a buy five get one free!! Its a 20% discount…
I am glad to have availed of the offer at The material Girls

Every Friday there is new fabric and I was lucky to get some on sale. So first I bought some shark fabric and a ‘lil princess fabric with cute crowns. They would both look lovely on kiddie beds.

This is a lovely quilt top that I made in the early part of the year! I loved it to the core, the HSTs, the colour combination, the solid fabrics…loved just about everything that went into making the quilt.

Then off it went to my friend Shruti, in Sangli who quilted it with the most beautiful FMQ paisleys that ever was…with a slightly shimmering ivory thread that takes the quilt to a whole different level. Hubby saw it for the first time and said “Now! This looks professional” and I just gave a satisfied smile like a proud mother being complemented on her kid’s nursery rhyme skills :)

A couple of quick pictures before it left the house.Here is the little one posing with the quilt, rather shying away.

The quilt is now gifted away to my cousin’s son for his birthday…

The quilt top will have only straight line quilting, hence the plan is to complete it before the end of the year.
November seems to have gone by so fast…its already mid-Nov and I have hardly started any large project.So now the speed has to double and I need to get to the Christmas sewing mode…

This pixelated quilt is based on Camille Roskelly’s Norway Quilt. I have used a pixelated version to complete the picture and am hoping this is the beginning of a trend for a lot more pixelated quilts in future.

Its a basic 17 X17 grid and each piece is 1.5″ finished.

I am quiet happy with the way the completed mini quilt looks. Sparing straight line quilting gives it a neat look without interfering with the beautiful pattern. The choice of colour is red and green to keep the Christmas spirit intact.

So off it goes to my swap partner. Hope she likes it :)
