Lemonade Star Table Runner

I finished this!!

I was feeling listless and started opening my scrap boxes when I came across the yellow, blue and green strips, and I thought why not making another friendship star.

and so I did

I like the yellow, blue and green against the white. It give spring-y feeling. Well, I do wish spring come faster. February is sort of my "down" month. Though the temperature is pleasant, but it's dry and dusty in here. This is the season when almost everyone get cough and cold. 

When I work on a project, I choose my fabric as I go. I don't go all at once at the beginning. Many times I will change my direction or preference. 

This was my initial design. I wanted something "white-ish" as the outer border and I love this white with green flower. But after I put it together it doesn't look as good as I imagined. 

so, it's unpicking times. Thank God for Kdrama, unpicking became a tolerable activity :D . 

then I searched for yellow instead of blue or white. and I love it!

Quilting was fun and quick. Though I want to do other quilting design, but I ended up doing meandering again. This time a little bigger than the RED RIDING HOOD one. 

binding as usual is finished by hand while watching re-run of  my "good feeling" Kdrama, My Princess. 

Don't you love the backing fabric? It was just perfect match!! 

et voila!! 

my lemonade table runner!!

another shot!!

This table runner is on sale at

and if you need one of a kind Indian cotton print (like the one I used in this quilt), do visit my fabric shop at 

Until then,

Happy Quilting

Oh My Star

I always love star blocks and when I saw Jera of Quilting in The Rain "Summer Mini Star" quilt I just went ahead and bought the pattern
one year ago...

and it's super easy to do

I've done it in a day...well if you count the hours that I am working on it ;-)

here is the detail of the FMQ, isn't that pretty??
Please don't mind if I can't stop being narcissistic here 
I've been trying FMQ in my HV Designer Topaz 20 which is I must admit it was rather bumpy journey. I read and watched a bunch of tutorials, fiddle with the settings, etc but it was not working as smooth as my  humble Usha Stitch Queen

and this one I did with Rayon thread in butter yellow color. It's so gorgeous in person. 
HV DT 20 in my opinion is good as embroidery machine or general sewing. But not for quilting. This is from my personal experiences. 

At the back, I decided to go with this yellow and green geometric print from my Etsy Fabric Shop. I wanted something bright.
And the binding is dark grey polkadots. 

For now, it's hanging prettily above my sewing machine. 
It's my inspiration as I can finish my first quilt of the year.

To tell you the truth, I was almost giving up on FMQ, until the other day. I was trying to tell my self that FMQ is not everyone's cup of tea.

well, if you get the right machine, then  why not?? It's easy it's fun. 
Sometimes something simple is all you need!

Until then,

Happy Quilting
