I used the no. 6 bias maker for the stems.  As the stems are quite tiny, I prefer to use the double sided tape bias maker.  This bias maker is so convenient for small stems like these.  Once I ironed on the stems, the next thing to do is to applique the sides.  Was thinking of using the sewing machine but decided to do everything by hand!  It will take a bit of time but I'm just going to take it easy!!

This is one of the most tedious job to do!  Tracing the pattern onto the fabric.  I had to tape the sides of the paper pattern on the floor first and then the fabric to keep it from moving and shifting.  This is done on the floor because the pattern is rather big and long.  Not good if you have a bad back!  It took me quite some time to do it but I am so glad it's all done!

Floral Fantasy

Bought this book during my New Zealand trip because of the lovely floral quilts.  This is one of the quilts that made me buy the book!! I have already sorted out the fabrics for this quilt.  The background will be cream in color.  I will be using strong colors for the flowers.  I just hope my combination will be as nice as the quilt in the book!

Christmas Quilt

I started this quilt a couple of years ago and only managed to complete it last night!!  It was such a joy to finally sew my label on it!! The quilting was done by a friend (she is a professional me via email if u need her help) as I wanted this quilt to be extra nice...she puts my quilting to shame!  I love piecing quilt tops together but the quilting kind of slow me down quite a bit!!  Got lots of quilt tops  sitting in the cupboard waiting for their turn!  LOL

Adeline's Quilt

I finally had a chance to see this finished quilt.  I pieced the quilt top but I didn't do the quilting.  Made this for my sister's 50th birthday!  I told her I don't have time to quilt but I don't mind piecing together a top!!  This is a king size quilt and I do like the colors.  I seldom make quilts in these colors!!  In future, I should consider making more quilts in these colors!!!  LOL
