More mindless sewing

Got carried away doodling with bits and pieces of fabrics'.I am still over the moon with patchwork quilts.This time its just a small size quilt great for baby changing diapers or a few minutes rolling playtime for kiddos..Its a great way to dispose strips of fabrics.I started off by placing 5 inches square fabrics( a total of 25 pieces) with a gap of 2 inches,followed by 2.5 inch x 5 inch ( a total of 50 pieces) strips at both sides and finish off with long strips of 3 inch x 33 inch..

The inspiration in making this quilt is from http://passionetcouture.blogspot.ca/2012/06/how-to-make-easy-quilt.html...I nevertheless made some minor adjustments to maximise my own scraps of varying sizes..I had such a lovely time finishing this little quilt..

Having fun with remnants from previous projects..

I feel as though i have just recovered from drowning under my stashes..Every time i finish a patchwork quilt there will be more remnants in bits and pieces..This patchwork is getting too addictive and i just cannot stop.I am neglecting my other works.I think this need to stop!Promise i will stop after just this last piece...Here is a show off..

This is before attaching the borders

They are finally done..

Being a project from remnants,..even the backing fabric consist of two tone polka dots..i like to maximise usage of all fabric available...hihihi

This time the binding was done by hand as oppose to my usual machine stitch.Some how,i
 kind of like the feel of hand sewn borders on my quilt.More of this style coming up soon..,thats for sure...

My qayg done to wrapp up the month of october.

This post is a continuation of my last post and you really need to read them both to have a full understanding,haha..I followed the technique of quilt as you go along from Jera's blog here.
The quilt was completed after 2 weeks..It measures 65 inch x 78 inch.And here are some photos to share..

I did some simple quilting in the ditch just to catch the backing fabric which is in pink polkadot with white background.I like the feel of minimal quilting as it gives a soft fluffy texture to the whole quilt.

October showers..

I felt as though it has been raining,all day,all month this october..In between the downpours,mycurtain projects for a december wedding ( almost done and will show off soon ) and running around minding my beautiful nieces ( while their parents are in Meqah for a good solid 42 days ) i have  been messing around with my beautiful bountiful supply of scraps..( THANK YOU ALLAH,for this blessings..)

In my high spirits of reducing and maximising usage of scraps i have been blog hopping  http://quiltingintherain.blogspot.com/.
I am quite way ahead of the sew along finishing 20 blocks in the 2nd week of the sew along..

Now i will need to quilt each and everyone of these beauties (that is if i can find the time to quilt or else it will be presented just as it is ) Next to think of the right color for the borders and binding and get back in line on  the sew along to see how Jera finish off..So what is it going to be..?Yes you are right..Lets see how the quilt will be like..Looks like its going to be a lap quilt..

So,who is complaining about the rain.. i am just hoping for more sunny hours in a day to dry my clothes..and in the mean time these scraps are going to keep me busy beside Mr Bro for many many years to come...

Reminiscing the past

I never had the chance to sew beddings for my own children..When i was young ( i.e during my child bearing age ) i was busy juggling my career and raising my 3 children.Sewing was never in my list of things to do but always at the back of my mind.,and now 30 years later ...i am making up the lost time and opportunities just sewing practically anything.And lately i have getting a lot of orders making sweet baby quilts,bed covers ,pillows ,bolsters,bumper pads....the list is endless...The feeling of making something from my hands and putting them in my small humble shop and then selling it or sending them to the new homes really fills that little spot in  me that being just  a housewife and mother does not fullfil.I must say making quilts are slowly distracting me from my curtain business ..Haha...i am contemplating resigning from making curtains but not closing down just yet.Just give it a couple more years ...Now back to sewing passionate quilts.....

Here is 2 more sets of baby bed covers order from Puan Zafirah who is expecting a new baby girl soon..Each set consist of one baby matress cover,one bolster cover and one pillow cover..Sizes are for toddler.

This is the purple elephant fabric which is english cotton bought from Dchomel,Taman Melawati.


 And this is the princess fabric ,also english cotton from Dchomel.Hope Puan Zafirah is happy to receive these sets ..Thank you for this order..I will be posting them to Negeri Sembilan soon.

Six dining chairs in box pleat slip covers

Fabric is cotton in Duck Egg blue  from ELYZA

Sunday, September 7, 2014

These colors make me so happy

Found these lovely prints while flirting at Nilai 3 this morning and grab them...can't wait to run my shears through...Fabrics are japanese cotton from Belboo..

The piecing is done...not too good looking,now time to quilt.Lets see how it looks with red polka dot binding.
The borders will be in red dots..perhaps?or is that too loud?
What would be the perfect size quilt to cuddle during nap time,to take along on car rides and perhaps a sleepover to granny's place.?Does size really matter?
