Dinosaurs in Colors!

A lovely dinosaur panel! Found it at Kelvin's of Bernina. It was bright & colorful. Had to have it.

It was small & sweet. So had to make it bigger. Framed it with a 2" black & white dragonfly fabrics. Then decided to use 3 different colored polkadot fabrics - aqua blue, red & green. Cut them up in 4.5" squares and made them into 2 rows. Finished it off with a 5" yellow fabric.

Backing fabric is a very dark (almost black) blue with white flowers and went back to the black & white dragonfly for its binding.

B.R.I.G.H.T & colorful!!

Children At the Beach

It was a lovely panel of children and their innocence, at the beach. I most certainly couldn't resist it!

The panel I bought came with 10 such lovely pictures. I chose only 6 to work with. Each block measured about 7" X 10". Decided to frame the blocks with a 1.5" sea blue marbled fabric, and knew I wanted a buttermilk color next.

Went back to the same blue and because I wanted some red somewhere . . . found this cream-reddish flower and went with it. Wasn't too sure about it, crossed my fingers tho'.

Now, the backing fabric I like - white & cream lines. Perfect I thought. Back to the blue for binding.

Hmmmm, it's pretty long. What do u think? Lovely! or just OK? Adore the pictures tho :-)

It was a Sunday and me & my girls decided to have some fun with fabrics. So we chose those above and . . . .

. . . . made them into these - notebooks!

Its really that simple - no stitching required! Just some fabrics, PVA glue & double-sided tape. And fabrics of course.

Done in 10 minutes. My 11 year old did one for herself (hers is the one with puppies & kittens).

A great gift idea! Could put the fabrics & kit together, if anyone is interested?

Kids Quilt

I've got this quilt book for some time now. Been looking at it and have tried some patterns. It's a great book!

Saw this "Loving, Hugs & Kisses" pattern and was really taken to it. Looks simple and nice. The above was done in soft pastel color . . . .

. . . . and this one is done in bright colors.

This is my version of it - slightly modified. But am liking it lots!

Pretty Flowers In Lilac

The fabric was all like this - bought it in Bandung recently. I simply added borders and quilted the flowered squares one by one.

7 squares across and 10 down. First border was a 2.5" cream tone-on-tone fabric. Stitched it all around.

Next was a 5.5" dark purple fabric with leaves.

Love the backing fabric - lilac polkadot, and dark marbled purple fabric for its binding.

Simple & fast to put together.

This was the fabric. Found it at Cottage Patch, Jalan Ampang. Love it!

Cut 6 blocks of 7" squares and decided on a log cabin pattern in 2 different greens & 2 different blues.

Went back to a lighter shade of blue all around and finished off with an interesting blue striped fabric (bought that in S'pore last year).

Backing fabric was a lite blue/grey with circles on it and decide to be bold & brave and went for a striking red for binding.

Good for a boy!

Went for a holiday to Bandung recently . . . . and came home with the essential FABRICS!!

Couldn't resist this hot air balloons on red background. Brimming with ideas on what to do with it :-)

. . . . some bunnies in maroon & blue,

. . . . some BIG polkadots (perfect for backing fabrics),

. . . . florals in 3 different colors,

. . . . lastly, yet more POLKADOTS! They come in so many colors. If any of you out there would like some, I'm willing to share my loot. They are RM28/ per metre.

Have a good weekend y'all. I will no doubt be busy with mine :-)

Nur's Order

The IKEA Animal fabric again. I just love working with this. Made it simple - cut them up in 5" squares and put a 2" solid blue sashing. Put 5 squares across and 7 squares down.

Finished it off with a 5.5" stripe fabric in green, blue & white - from iKEA , again :-)

The backing is a dark blue fabric with flowers and binding fabric was a lite green.

All done up. Am pleased with the finished results. Hope Nur likes it too!

Baseball Quilt

The fabric was white with all sorts of baseball, mitts & writings on it having to do with the sport of baseball. There was a pattern in one of my quilt books called the 'slanted quilt' which I decided to try. So I cut the fabric into 6.5" of 12 blocks and put a solid brown fabric as its first sashing.

Then I put a 3" yellow-mustard colored fabric as the 2nd sashing all around and finished it off with a 5" beautiful multi-colored small dots. Perfect!

A matching cream fabric which I thot would go nicely as backing fabric and the binding was a tone on tone dark brown.

I like! Simple. Perfect for a boy.
