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 πŸ™‚

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.

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?

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

This is a lovely half yard of Olaf fabric…Yes! the Olaf from frozen. My little one wants a bagpack from it and I have no clue how to make one.

I found a tutorial on the Birch fabric blog but that has cording and am yet to venture into that kind of complication in bag making. To be frank, I am just stumped…not much help from Pinterest either 😦

Looks like I will have to design my own pattern!

In the meantime, if you are reading this and have a link to any tutorial, please share it with me…thanks in advance!

This is an amazing find. I got this fabric in early January and quickly made a craft apron from it for an upcoming swap. You can see the details of the swap and the craft apron here.

So, this is a fabric find where the project came first and then comes the Sunday Stash post about acquiring the fabric πŸ™‚ hmmm…
That’s a first and a strange one at that.

This is a lovely thick canvas, perfect for making bags and cushions for quilty friends. I bought this from Quiltaholics around the wake of the new year and is about 2 metres in length. That’s a lot of fabric at 60″ width for multiple small projects.
