A Finish : Jelly Roll Jam II


I have a small finish to share. A baby quilt made for a special baby just born last two week. She is still in the hospital in the incubator, but she is strong and healthy. Hopefully, she gain enough weight and would be ready for the outside world very soon.


I followed the wonderful tutorial by Fat Quarter Shop for this quilt. It is called the Jelly Roll Jam II.
The process was very quick and it is definitely the perfect way to use up some of the jelly rolls I have. This one is by Riley blake, Seaside by October Afternoon. I love a lot of the fabrics in this line. So many basics and love the colours in this line.

I decided to bind it with a yellow dots and the backing is Michael Miller Quarter Dots in grey. The baby is a girl, but I decided to go neutral just in case.

Here is my little helper, he is still small to hold up the quilt well, but this is a great practice and a good start isn't? :P

I quilted it with a simple mendearing double loopy loops.

I decided to go quick with the binding and machine finish it off with a zig zag.

A great pattern, and a great quick finish if you are looking for a quick quilt, make sure you try this!

Around The World Blog Hop

Hi! I was tagged by lovely Nurdan from HugAbitQuilt for the blog tour of around the world blog hop, and it was suppose to be yesterday that I get this posted, but I have totally forgotten. I can be so disorganized sometimes. :P

 Anyway, it has been fun reading and hopping around seeing quilty people around this blog hop. So,here are my answers to the few questions below.. hope you enjoy your time here !

 1. What am I working on? 

 I have few or more at the moment but the one I am currently trying to finish off is this swoon quilt I made. I am currently working hard quilting it off. It is going slow as I am very busy on weekdays but I sometimes try to squeeze time at night for a bit of quilting.


2. How does my work differ from others of its genre? 

 I would say, my work is not much different from others, I get inspired by all kind of quilters and love trying new things. I haven't yet found the one and only style I love, but I am building towards that. I love freemotion quilting and I love exploring new ways to improve my skill. I am interested towards building my skill in modern patchwork and quilting too. Here is a modern hexagon placemats I made. You can find the tutorial for this here.

I also enjoy making items such as wallet, and bags. Here are wallets, which I made a pattern available for others to enjoy too. You can find the pattern here on Craftsy or here on Etsy.

3. Why do I write/create what I do?

 I create because it makes me happy. It takes stress out of my head and I feel like I am so myself when I create. Colours makes me happy too.

4. How does my writing/creating process work? 

 I often do whatever I feel in the mood. I do knit and crochet as well, so sometime when i am lazy to sit and sew at the sewing machine, I would be with my knitting needle or crochet hook.

As much as I love to write more, I have very limited time nowadays since I am so busy writing for my studies too. Sadly, I also feel guilts sometimes. It's normal I guess. But anyway, I am very thankful that I have a creative channel and this blog to express my interest and my love for craft!

 I would love to invite you to visit a few others, but am still waiting for their respond for this blog hop. I will update soon! For the time being, feel free to browse around my blog!

Patchwork Crochet Edged Potholder


Been quiet around here lately. Off on holiday the last couple of weeks and now I am back in Canberra.

Been sewing a tiny bit here and there whenever I have some times in between chores, studies and other responsibilities. I love it how sewing can just bring me somewhere where I feel so myself.

Anyway, I joined over the #verycherryswap over on Instagram and got myself busy with some cherry fabrics. However, I haven't started any sewing for my swap partner just yet but I already have few ideas. She wanted something for the sewing room, and I think I have just the thing for that.


 In the meantime, I am making patchwork potholders for a special someone whose birthday is coming very soon. Can't resist the combination of theses fabrics altogether. I love scrappy stamp look.

I crochet the edges for a bit of vintage inspired look. Love them so much that I wanna keep them! So, I guess that is a good sign that it will be a great gift don't you think?

 Well, till next time! I have few quilts that needed quilting but I ran out of threads..... still waiting for the mail for them.. hopefully I will have bigger finishes soon to share.

Thank you for reading!

True Tones :: The Modern Patchwork Table Runner


A couple of days ago, I made these table runners.  Both the table runners were patched up in an evening. They were quick and simple. I finished the blue one that very day, but had stalled a while before quilting the red one. Now the red one is quilted, it is yet stalled to be binded. I will do it very soon, but let's share them with all of you first.



I love the simplicity of cutting without measurements, simple strips and fun quilting. The inspiration came from the cover of the book " Quilts made Modern by Weeks Ringle"

These both were gifts and really need to make me one myself. It is funny sometimes how fast you can sew for someone else, but yet find it so hard to find time to sew for yourself. I bet you if they were meant to be mine, they wouldn't be done yet. There is a bigger reason to stall when they're your own project. How about you. Do you feel the same? If not, how do you keep yourslef motivated to get that thing for yourself done and done?

Well, till next time - have a lovely Week ahead!

Modern Medallion Quilt Along : Cross My Heart and Stuck in the Middle Border


 Welcome to my stop for the blog hop of the Modern Medallion quilt along. I see a lot of different versions coming along so well over at instagram #modernmedallion and over at facebook! It has been so much fun experimenting with a lot of improv, wonky style patchwork.

I have not have imagined that it is actually quite hard to get wonky look, but it was surely lots of fun.

Border 4 and 5 up

So how far have got to? This week, we can share our progress on the 4th and 5th border, which is the Cross My Heart and Stuck in The Middle. I continue with the rainbow wash theme with the crosses and decided to just go plain and white volume for the stuck in the middle border.

I did find one little trouble when putting these two borders, the crosses seams easily becomes undone and I had to sew back some of the stitches so that I don't get holes in my quilt. I guess it is because we trim them and the stitches can become quite loose.

Be extra careful not too stretch when putting on the 5th border on!

Have a joyful journey finishing up the quilt! Lets link up your progress here:
