I've added yellow sashing and border on the quilt. I know the yellow fabric is very striking! But I think it goes with the printed red fabric which has some yellow on it. I might have to put this quilt top on hold so that I can get some Christmas projects going!! So many things to do...soooo little time!!! LOL

Sewed this in the afternoon. I wanted to sew the sashings and border but because there was a bad thunderstorm, I decided to switch off the sewing machine and take a rest!! The weather was really horrible!! Dark skies....the wind was so strong that I could see stuff flying above the of my potted plants fell and broke ( the pot itself is about 2 ft high)...heavy rain....Arrgghhh!

I used the easier variation for the second block. Less sewing!! LOL I don't know but I do think it is a waste of time piecing white strips on the same white fabric.....Lazy me!!

I am now back to work on Andrea's quilt. Andrea is my eleven year old niece. Yesterday she sent me an sms, asking me what I was doing! I told her and this is what she typed..'Yay my blanket'!! LOL

Nataniel's Quilt

I thought I'll post this since I haven't been doing any sewing lately!! I really must start soon!! LOL
I made this some time back for a friend's baby boy. This quilt pattern is great if you have a lot of scraps lying around. There are only three different shapes to applique..the aeroplane body, wing and propeller. A very simple pattern!! But the outcome is great!!! LOL

Friendship Swap Bag

My friendship bag has arrived! Thank you, Cecelia Malhotra! She has included some fabric, a key chain and a pattern. Really appreciate it! Thanks again.
I have been absent for two weeks! Just came back from India. We had to attend two wedding functions so we took the opportunity to go sight seeing as well. Did you know that there are only 3 basilicas in the world which is build over the tomb of an apostle and one of them is in India? St Thomas Shrine! We also made a trip to Valankarni. There is a beautiful church which is dedicated to Our Mother of Good Health. Mother Mary appeared 3 times there. So it is a very special place for Catholics to visit! LOL So I am back home! Can't wait to get back to some serious 'work'!!
