Embroidery 101 Quilt top

I choose to sew the quilt top from the  Quilt Along that I participated at Clover & Violet for the Friday Night Sew-In.  As a beginner and my first experience to sew a quilt, I find it very difficult , especially when there are few of my blocks are not in the same size.  

 Earlier  I choose to follow the design recommended by Janelle by adding a 2 " sashing with a small square....I did that, but it did not turn out right.  From the picture below you can see clearly that the sashing is not in line with the block...not satisfied with the result, I ripped open and stiched the sashing without the small square.

And the result ... my first quilt top!! 

And below is how it looks on my queen size bed...

Happy Sewing!!!

These are some of my Work in Progress that need to finish before end of this October month. 

First is the Embroidery 101: Stitch & Quilt Along sew the quilt top...

Secondly is the Sunburst Granny Square Afghan crochet Along... for my queen size bed.  I need 120 squares and currently I've only crocheted  82 squares ... so I need another 38 pieces to go.

Third is the Yo Yos Along which I need another 850 pieces ... (which I'm not sure whether I can make it )

Fourth is the crochet Baby Cardigan which I've put aside for sometime now since I've run out of yarn... I've bought the yarn yesterday... but yet to find the time for it since I already have three other projects to finish.

I am sharing this at WiP Wednesday


Happy Crocheting and Sewing!!

Embroidery 101 : Final Block

I just finished my final block for Embroidery 101:Stitch & Quilt Along  today.

I would say that this is one of the many pattern that I like most.

Even though the Embroidery 101 Quilt Along has already reach to the final block, basically it is not ended until you  put all the nine blocks that have been embroidered together!  I think I might have problem with this since I have never sew a quilt before... anyway many thanks goes to Jennie and Janelle for include the tips on how to do it(with or without sashing).  Hope I manage ... till my next post on the assembling of the quilt top I wish everyone...

... Happy Stitching!!

Embroidery 101:Block 8

I just finished stitching the Block eight for the Embroidery 101 Quilt Along that I participate at Clover & Violet.   Basically there are nine blocks in total that we need to stitch for a 54" square quilt. Being said so...  it means  just one more block to go before the quilt top finish. 

The most challenging part while stitching this Block 8 was when I stitched the big petals. I used satin stitch with back stitch as the outline... just like Jennie's. I started with the outline followed with the satin stitch... I found it very difficult in filling up the space... in future I will remember to start with the satin stitch first and then the back stitch outline. Anyway it is a good experience ... and I'm happy with the result.

Happy Stiching!!
