More patterns in the house

This time i have combined the box pleat,pelmet and scallop.I am still at the experimental stage.I don't quite like with how the long scallop has turn out,might need to resize the scallop.

Small simple valance for the door.

Pelmet with scallop
This pattern also calls for a light sheer drop at the back to distract eyes from the messy room inside.

The jumbo quilt is finally done

The ready size quilt is 124inch x 94 inch to fit a super king size bed for a dear friend who is giving the jumbo quilt to her loving sister who is in her senior years..

The patchwork was quilted simply in in a straight line following the arrangement of the white hexies.It is quilted in this manner for many reasons ..One reason being to cut stitching hours to the minimum and definitely reducing costs..and headache,sebab tuan tanah asyik merengek tanya bila nak siap?
The pink fabric on the left and right of the hexy piece was quilted seperately and later joined  to the main hexy patchwork to make up for the total size of the ready this quilt consist of three parts quilted seperately..

Meditation on Saturday.Take some time off to arrange and tidy up the fabrics

These newly acquired fabric stacks  have been sitting beside me at my desk for almost 2 weeks waiting for me to pick the right could be a baby quilt,a tote bag ,a quran cover,kitchen,bla,bla..there is a long list of orders...
I am having a tough time deciding what bag pattern or quilt pattern to do and which material to pick and whose order to start with....
These stacks sit in my store room..But mostly are curtain fabrics in small meterage and small bits of cotton great for patchworks. They are all relegated to the back of my mind and my sight as for now and slowly losing my interest and waiting to be given away to the old lady..who visits me occasionally to "clean up" my stash,,See the line up of nagoya plastics below...more sheers pieces.They make nice frills for basket makeover.But there is just too much and i am giving it away as i am in dire need of the space,, 

I am trying to hold all the solid color fabrics(top most shelf) in one place for easy reach.This arrangement is great for starters..The shelf sits right at the back of my desk also at the entrance to the store..

But unfortunately after folding and unfolding i still could not decide.Fortunately and for sure they are now nicely fold and neatly arrange till my next pondering...A good peck on my back for a clean job..hihihi
