Blocks of Love

Well, i have been keeping quiet since my last quilt because have been busy patching and sewing all these blocks. I am doing this for my daughter who is flying off to Melbourne, Australia to further her studies. The animals were paper-pieced which patterns are taken from Margaret Rolfe's Animal Kingdom. The pictures are chosen by my daughter i.e. family picture, best friends from HELP College and best friends from Secondary Science School (KUSES) which are printed using Inkjet Printable Fabric.
This will be a twin size quilt and really really has to be completed before 30th June 2011.....2 more days from today.  I am really pressured for time...wish me LUCK!

Now i am adding the little little details i.e embroidery stitching and with some other embellishments.
Will soon be posting the completed quilt.

Sultry Quilt

My Sultry braid quilt. A group project for JUQ.

This is how it looks like as a whole quilt.  Made from two jelly rolls of 40 pieces bought from Cottage Patchwork, cut and combined together as braid following colour gradation. I quilted it using 'Sunburst' design with my PFAFF Hobby 1200 Grande Quilter which i really like. Started this group project for JUQ on May 16th 2011 and completed on June 9th 2011 (on my birthday) and managed to photograph and posted it today. Happy and now starting on next quilt for my daughter Nur Amirah 'Animal Kingdom'....coming out soon.

This is how it looks like from behind.

The quilt label and my personal label 'Pretty Ideas' sewn together.
