Wave Runner

Although it's been a while since I posted anything, I have been sewing a little regularly. I did accomplish sewing and quilting the Wave Runner #9 on my Finish Along Q3 goals. In total I have only completed 4 from the list of 11. Probably that's way too ambitious for someone with a baby at hand. I did sew a few things that was not on the list. So it wasn't a total failure.
Anyway the wave runner pattern is from the Easy Quilts magazine Winter edition of 2013. It was pretty easy to sew but a little weird to quilt because of its shape. It is 70" long.

Did some straight line quilting on purple, stippling on tan and followed the design on green.

Baby Sun Hat

 Today I just took the courage to cut into that cute heart fabric to make the sun hat (#3 on my Finish Along Q3 goals. I didn't use the pattern I had for the hat, which had 6 panels, instead I used the pattern from this site. It was the right size for my baby so I went with that.


Fits like a glove on my daughter

Eid Banner

Eid Mubarak sign July Finish # 4 and Finish Along Q3 #5  is completed. I think it is okay but needs a little bit more pizzaz, may  be some glitter, hmmm.  My son says the moon looks like a banana. May be I should redo that. It does kind of look like a silver banana.


Template cut out for the banner



Eid Mubarak means Blessed Festival

String of Pearls

This quilt is on my July Finishing Goal and #1 on Finish Along Q3 list. I am so glad I chose to get it quilted rather than quilt it myself on my machine with that tiny throat space. I made this quilt top as part of  QAL @ Christa's Quilts in which she used the pearl bracelet fabrics and hence the name. Well I just couldn't come up with a better name so the 'String of Pearls' stands.
The String of Pearls quilt gifted to my daughter. 
Pieced Back of the quilt. I really liked the way it turned out. Looks like it could be the top as well. Not a clear photo though.
Beautifully quilted by Carole Staples on her long-arm machine.
