JUQ Group - Big Block Swap

It has been days that I last wrote. Just completed sewing for the second group #8 that I am in.

It is kind of amazing when I see the colours being combined  i.e. strong colours with subdued colours. I tried to choose colours as per requested by the swappers and hoping that they will like them. Done with love and friendship among quilters are priceless.

Now I am sewing for group #12. Will be posting them pretty soon.

Big Star Blocks by Rhoda Forbes of JUQ

This is another interesting project from JUQ organised by Rhoda Forbes...Big Star Blocks in which a block measures 25" square. A project where in a group there are 9 persons swapping internationally. This is for the 1st Group that I am in. It is good to use up all my fabrics that I have in store.

Now going to Group #8 and Group #12...see you again.

Boxes Mystery Quilt - By Kylie Kenny of JUQ

First and foremost Happy New Year to everyone and it is the 2nd day of the month. I have been busy sewing the Boxes Mystery Quilt organised by Kylie Kenny of JUQ  which was a 3 days sewing project started on December 28, 2012 and ended December 30, 2012.

Owh well, I can say that this is the fastest quilt top that I have ever made besides the Jelly Roll quilt. Along the way in sewing, I made few mistakes which I was happy to face it, something that I always believe that I always learn through my mistakes..!!  Ripping is one of my favourite task. So let me show you the quilt top that I have done with the instructions given by Kylie Kenny.

:Later on I will use black coloured fabric for its binding....Thank you for Kylie Kenny again for organising this three days on line project.

Now I need to complete sewing the Big Star Blocks for international swap and also finishing up 7 pieces cushion covers for dear sister-in-law.

See you again.
