I was fortunate to test a few blocks for Quietplay on Instagram for her new series due for release by month end.

The word I tested was ‘QUILT’ and I love the way it turned out. I could never imagine that cursive writing was possible using paper piecing…what about all those curves! Butt Kristy has made it possible; the pattern is due for release by end of January.

Linking this to Sew Fresh Quilts.

This set of 10 blocks was a rather late-night kind of set; 6 out of 10 were sewn after the work day was over. With the online community showering as much love and affection as they did in the earlier blocks, this set also got completed as per schedule with a sew and post each day!

Half the journey is over. 50 blocks completed! Now for the next 50…

This is my first sampler quilt and it feels great to be moving ahead steadily as per schedule.

Aha! it was the world quilting Day and I had planned to do some major quilting related activity…but I really didn’t quilt, I just went ahead and bought this beauty from the Bernina Creative Center(BCC) in Mumbai.

Its way above my league and am still trying to accept the fact that this Swiss marvel is actually in my house 🙂

My little one inaugurated it and Usha, from BCC graciously took the pains to explain the machine details to me over 3 hours! This is still too much technology for me and I will slowly try my hand at it!

As of now I am just over the moon 🙂
