Really pleased with the outcome.

The Pink Quilt Story

I always love pink....and this pink quilt is for my auntie. She hand pieced the quilt top several years ago and decided to have me finish it. She used a variety of blend cotton pink fabric for a single bed size quilt.

I added the white border by using a 100% American Cotton and hand quilted as usual. She requested for a pink checked fabric for backing.

Before handed over any quilt to it's owner, I am always clean and wash it so they will appear fresh and clean. Unfortunately this time, the quilt suffers colour bleeding from the pink fabric. I'm sooo frustrated after all the hard work :((

"An unusual fabric may be difficult to deal with, especially when it's the first time you handle it and and old cottons tend to bleed especially colour ones." So that's maybe one of the reason for the bleeding.

Already passed the the finished quilt to my auntie , deep down my heart I hope she's ' not blame me for the bleeding.

P/S : Still feeling blue

Pretty In Pink

back view

My friend Donna was so excited because she's finally have a baby girl after 3 boys. She asked for simple, pink & green, girly, baby quilt with matching pillow and 2 bolster cases.

I decided to make this as a simple patchwork quilt with bear applique at the centre.
I picked the dot pattern fabric to match with the other plain fabric. I like the clean and simple feel of this quilt, just right for a new baby girl.

As usual, the hand applique and hand quilting make it looks great :)

It took me one week to complete this 45"X 50" quilt. It was posted on the day the baby was born and arrived the next day when she was brought back home.

P/s: Donna and Pyan
Congratulations on your new baby girl! I am sure your boys are so proud to become big brothers!

Spring Blooms Mini Quilt Swap

front view

back view

I signed up for Spring Blooms Mini Quilt Swap back in April. This swap is hosted by quiltinggallery.com.  Basically you sign up and are assigned a random partner. The best part is that you keep your partner secret so no one knows who is making a quilt for them.

I managed to finish the quilt earlier this week. Off to the post office in the morning with it! I hope my swap partner likes it as much as I do.
