Carrying over from the Easter weekend, some fabric that has chicken and one that has some geese.The Geese have cute red bows on them and the fabric is a strong herringbone weave as against the others that are canvas. I am thinking, a bag with a red lining would compliment this fabric well. Red actually would work well as a lining for all these, with the right amount of contrast.

I just love text print…wondering what I could make from these – one has a ‘home’ theme and the other ‘Valentines’

Fabric gifts from friends and family are the best gifts for a quilter 🙂

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 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!
Learning from 1&2: The grey is too light and the snail body doesn’t stand out against the white backdrop.
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!
These are better but the wonky blocks need to improve.

These traditional pieced elephants have been on my To Do list for long. I fell in love with them the moment I saw them on the blog SewFeshQuilts as part of her Quilt Along #ElephantParade. But life happens and I wasn’t able to make them then…I finally got the opportunity to make two of them for this baby quilt :).
It was my little one’s idea to place them back to back. After the two were done, I added some whole cloth elephant fabric for the body of the quilt and I was done with the top. It is a gift quilt for my husband’s cousin who had a beautiful baby a month back. Am glad that it was over on time. Will be posting it shortly. I hope the baby grows up snuggling in the quilt and the parents love the gift 🙂
I would like to know how do people pack and post quilts?
The Indian Speed Post system mandates that they check the item at the post office so basically you have to carry an open item to the Post office and then get the contents checked before you post. Don’t get me wrong, I love their service and use it pretty often for small items but am not sure if the same is true for Quilts.
Quilt Name: Elephants on the run
Size: 40″ X 50″
Thread:Calypso from costs
Quilting: FMQ stippling and straight line quilting
Binding: 2.5″ double bind

Looking forward to her Christmas new Quilt along!
