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 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.
