Remnants of My Life Quilt

Not to throw or put aside but just block them, sash them and patched them together to make into another quilt to be used by anyone at home. Remember the competition done by JUQ Sultry Braids....these are my remnants which I will post again once all the 30 blocks joined  together. I am happy...no wastage!!! See you all again.

Eleanor Burn's Block Party - February 2012

Hi again and this time I have completed the 1st block for Eleanor Burn's Block Party for the month of February i.e. called 'Tea Cup'. I think my mistake was for not using a darker fabric at the bottom so can't really see the doily used. Anyway, it is okay, what is done is done...I am not going to use my seam ripper to rip it rip it...no way.

This is the second block for February called 'The Blossom'. It was fun doing it. It is a 12" block.
I am now going to do the blocks for March 2012 which will soon be posted. See you...!

Well this block which is a 6" block and  I was contemplating to try or not to try but at last I tried it out and came out sweet but it was tedious and took a longer time to complete. My eldest daughter has fell in love with it and asking me to do one quilt for her with this pattern but in floral pink and white. Well of course I will do it for her with love. Thanks to Eleanor Burns for showing the way to do this pattern.

Eleanor Burn's Block Party

Well, though this block has started since January 2012 by Eleanor Burn on her website and I subscribed to it online,  I only managed to sew it yesterday. This is called 'My Mother's Apron' a 12" finished block. It is a very easy block. I did not sew the pocket cos I thought it would be too busy.

And this one is called 'Hour Glass' also a 12" finished block with inter-locking seam. A very neat finish.
I really like the way Eleanor's teaching which is very easy to follow and fun too.

See you again.

Scraps of My Life Log Cabin

Remember my blocks of scraps...so far so good managed to do six blocks from the scraps of my latest projects.  This is an on going projects for me cos I will only be using scraps from all the projects that I have done and this is my first Log Cabin paper piecing pattern from Carol Doak's quilt book.

I have received few encouragements from JUQ friends about this cos it is a very small block of 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"  that is for me not to give it up. I will not give up and with God's willing it will turn into a beautiful quilt.
I am glad that I am able to use a very tiny bit of scraps that I have but for sure it is a tedious work.

See you again.
