Barbara over at Cat Patches hosted this 2013 NewFO Challenge linky party.
This is my second year joining the fun. It is about getting started a New Project each month without to worry to finish it. Following are what on my NewFO wish list for the first two months in 2013 in no particular order…
I intend to join About A Quilt Sampler QAL : A sampler quilt with custom quilting hosted by Amira at littlemushroomcap
This QAL is going to be all about how to do customize quilting. It will be about quilting by block using a domestic machine and the quilt as you go technique for each block.
The finished project will look like this…
Another project that I'm looking forward is to make a quilt for my son using this fabric bundle.
I still not decide on the pattern but these are some options that I’m looking at …time will tell
A zig zag or
a log cabin four patch pattern
That's all I can list for today ...Some bloggers have more but I will keep my list short for now.
Another week past by and Wednesday is here again...time just fly too fast for me. This is my flower from my garden today... The weather is beautiful ... bright and fresh. Do you ever think that today's date(with repeated numbers like this-12-12-12) is once in our life time ? And what a coincidence, my One Flower Wednesday post is also # 12.
Thanks to All the Mighty for all the beautiful things happen today... and thanks Karen for hosting this fun garden party at Journey of a Quilter. Remember to visit other blogger's garden to look at their flowers today!
Today I have two pouches to share which I’ve finished during the weekend. First up is this scrappy pouch which I made for myself using the Coquette fabric.
Not that satisfied with the result… I hand stitch a yellow thread to make it more outstanding, and the result…it makes the scrappy block looks as being frame. Hmmm…now I’m happy!
The size of this pouch is approximately 5.5” H x 3” D x 9” L. It is big enough for keeping all my left over yarns from other crocheted projects.
Next pouch that I’ve finished is a boxy pouch. My eight years old daughter request for a new pencil box and I choose to follow the Pontoms box pouch tutorial by Mommy’s Nap Time. To make it more interesting for a little girl I sew this bug for the zipper puller…
The finished size of this pencil box pouch is approximately 2” H x 3” D x 7” L. This is my first try to sew a boxy pouch… and I’m happy with the result.
Following are the beauties that I choose from my stash.. for this project....combination of Good Fortune by Kate Spain,Thread Wind by Ashley and Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille. All these are FQ bundles that I've bought at Sew Lux Fabrics.
I am still in the process of cutting all the tiny pieces.... personally I would say this pattern was the first that I've ever follow which need a lot of cutting. Below are the work in progress which I arranged using mosaic. The last photo was the first block that I've finished... I love it so much. It turn out so satisfying...
and last night I finished another three blocks and my first diamond shape block created. I still have a long way to go...but surely I will reach there.
I'm still on the same heading... Guest Curator Contest at Sew Lux Fabrics is still on .. .have you submit yours? Last day to submit your entry is on 20th November. You still have ample of time to create yours!
This is my second bundle. I name it 'Animals Bundle' I am thinking of my younger boy when I choose the fabrics...he loves animals so much.
Sew Lux Fabrics is having a contest for a Guest Curator for the month of December. I am taking this opportunity by joining in. The fun part of this contest is where you can create a bundle of fabrics from their shop! You can submit two entries ...so this is my first bundle.
While browsing through their collection of fabrics I’am thinking of making something for my mother. That is how these bundle have been created. The bundle was a combination of Papillon and Late Bloomers fabric collection.
I name it 'Papillon Bloomers Bundle'
If you feel like creating your own custom made bundle, stop by at Sew Lux Fabrics and join in the fun! There are lots of great bundles already linked up!
It has been a while...I am too busy with my working life, anyway thanks to the long weekend. The Hindus in Malaysia are celebrating Deepavali today,13th November. At least during the weekend I managed to sew and finish up some of my Quilt Along projects. The first project in my list is the Great Granny Along...
and I am so happy so say that I managed to finish the quilt top today. This is how the result looks like...
The are many other Great Granny Quilts that you can inspired from at The Great Granny flickr group, visit them HERE ...you won't regret.
