Greetings from Southampton

Spring is here!!! Spring is here!!!! I'm so happy because all the flowers are blooming around me!!! Yes, I received a greeting card from my patchwork group in Southampton last week. Jenna from Sew Happy Geek is actually the teacher for this group. Oh... I miss the group so much.

Well, back to my sewing.... I have been sewing quite a lot for the last two weeks. Firstly, I would like to introduce my fat cat nursery wallhanging for my little one!

I hope my little one will be interested in playing violin in future! Isn't that little fat cat very cute? 

Secondly, I would like to introduce my three dresden plates cushion covers. Few weeks ago I made this dresden plate by using the Easy Dresden Ruler by D. Zimmerman. I'm writing a tutorial for these cushion covers. I will share the tutorial on my blog once I have finished writing. The finished size for the cushion is 18".

My third sewing is paper piecing. Yes, the foundation/ paper piecing is getting so popular recently. I have tried some patterns out but I do not have any idea what to do with the finished blocks. 

I found the ice-cream cone tutorial in here by Anne and the crazy heart tutorial in here by Jenna. Thank you Anne and Jenna for the fantastic tutorial and pattern! 

That's all for today. I got to get out from the house and enjoy the sun shine now! See you tomorrow!

Dresden Plate

I bought this Ruby by Bonnie & Camille layer cake by Moda for quite some time and I haven't decided what to do with this fabrics not until I have watched a video by MissouriQuiltCo. Hence, I decided to make this dresden plate! The instruction in the video is so clear and beautiful. Where did I get the template? Well, it's the ruler called Easy Dresden by Darlene Zimmerman. You can get it here , here and here. I tell you what, you will love the ruler cause you can make your dresden in different sizes.

This is a 14" size of block. Hm.... what should I do with this block now? Should I turn this into a cushion cover, a table runner, a wall hanging or a placemat? I think I'm going to continue with another 2 similar blocks and turn the blocks into a wall hanging. Right, I got to leave now and carry on with my dresden plates........

Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

Baby Quilts

Hi everybody I'm still alive! I've been away for quite a few months. I'm happy to announce that I'm going to be a mom soon! I can't believe I'm already halfway through my pregnancy! I felt so terrible during my first trimester - extremely tired, no appetite, very sick..... I didn't have stamina to do any sewing! But now my energy is getting back! Therefore, I have finished all my incomplete quilts!

These are the baby quilts that I've been longing to finish for a long time......

Is this suitable for a girl or a boy?

This is definitely for a girl!

I hope my baby will like the quilts!
