Third week of january..

Time is ticking too fast...so much to do,so much to learn,no time to get all documented..In between classes (  those which i am the teacher,but mostly i am the student )..here are some work done besides other little projects..

Some curtain eyelets in progress..


These are for an appartment at Gurney heights ,Bukit Keramat..Fabrics are from Tejani Holdings,Ipoh..They will take up a 5 inch header and silver eyelets, going up on to silver rods and graced 2 sliding doors in the main living..

And some round cushions with buttons on the navel were done too...all  eights in velvety matte  fabric..24 pieces more to get done....( i wonder why she needs 32 pieces all in the same tones )..but they will be done! By the way a good one meter fabric with 60 inch width can produce 2 of these beauties




Here is a photo courtesy from customer who is a wedding planner..

 And my favorite pass time,disposing of scraps again and again...a never ending task...more hexy pillow covers..




A little imperfection on the right...but its ok...the mission is to do away with scraps..Mission accomplished and someone is going to have a lovely sleep on a pillow hexagonly pieced with tender loving care.

Quilts,quilts,quilts


I am so passionate about sewing quilts...and since i like to keep things interesting in my crafty studio i will always have a few on going projects working all at the same time.

Here is another scrappy quilt i managed to put together ...


I cut 90 pieces of 4.5 inch square of scraps in multi - color with purple hues in my mind all the time..I use this 4.5 inch square ruler brand Sew Easy bought at Spotlight recently..and a 3 inch  x 18 inch ruler bought at LSN brand Omnigrid...and the cutting session past  like the breeze....





Equally presentable on the reverse side too..




And a dimple pillow to complete the set

Love the scrumpy look though....More of these style quilts coming up soon..talking about scrap busting...what a blast...The color is so loud and busy,but i love it..!

So,rest assured that you do not need to burnt your wallet to be happy..And look at these lovely baskets that i have been working on..they are progressing well..Two baskets are almost done and that leaves just one more huge basket to complete the task..







I pray for another great day..Thank you Allah...

Quilted baskets for baby goodies

3 baskets were brought in last thursday..These are new baskets to accommodate baby things and customer request for quilted cover ( quilted inside and outside) which can be casually removed for washing and likewise easily slip in again ..The fabrics were provided by customer and these are the second set of baskets after her first order  as at http://nykolett.blogspot.com/2014/07/galore-of-baskets-for-newborn.html#comment-form.

And here are the 3 baskets..




And the fabric combo:


The animal print fabric will be on the exterior while the stripes will be on the inside'.

So i started working on the first basket which is the smallest.I am trying to give the traditional ruffles/frills a rest and try something new.Those little dresdens which i have been doodling during my lazy hours have somehow put on my thinking cap..I am looking into possibilities of making sort of dresden frills...if i refer them as"frills"too.





And this is how i envision  it will turn out to be...



These dresden frills are easy to make but needs a lot of time to put together..but i nevertheless love making them.So i better hurry up and not waste much time as i have promised to get all baskets done by month end.Be sure to drop by and see the transformation of all 3 baskets..

Feeling good when you can made something from scraps..

I have dug up my dresden basket and started topping up more dresden to make a table runner..Here are some stash which i have cut and sewing 16 blades will make a block..





I might just need 3 blocks to make a 64 inch length table runner for my dining.Now i will need to quilt,find a nice fabric for the backing and think of an awesome patchworh style border to finish up..This simple project is a really cool way to unwind from my otherwise routine curtain sewing.

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..
