Hot Day

20110424-063023.jpg

Such a hot and sunny day today! But I’ve manage to work on quilting on my Pinky Quilt a bit more. I’ve read some blogs lately about doing circle quilting pattern. So I’m trying to work on this one on my 4th quilt. It is prettier to see it when the circle is bigger and bigger. Just wonder whether I can finish it within next week? Let’s see how far I can do

I need to turn the air con off while doing quilting, the dust from batting is hugh and I need lots of air flow otherwise the whole room will be covered with the dust from the batting. But it is so blooming hot!! I guess today the temp should be around 36 degree. I just want to live in the colder country so I can enjoy the fresh cool air while I’m quilting and covered with unfinished blanket.

Now it is time to stop after spent most of the Easter Day sewing. Should spend more time with family, I think 🙂

The First Blog…

Ethan White

I have been thinking what should I put on my first blog. But at the end I choose to show you my family’s picture.  Sure I will show you all my crafts I have been “IN” during the past months as well.  Also, I won’t miss to show you my passions about fabric designs, the colors, the patterns and so on.  But this is the start and I start to enjoy sharing with you too.

I decided to write this blog on the sunny day (only in the morning). Today the weather in Singapore is the same as everyday, hot and sunny in the morning and rain in the afternoon.  I started working on my craft around 2 pm today at my little studio behind the lounge area.  It was quite nice to start working when the rain started to fall. Quite romantic and so peaceful.

 

Dresden plate project

Preparation for the Dresden Flower

Today’s one of my to do list is to prepare the cut fabric from Anna Maria Horner and Amy Bulter for the Dresden flowers. I am planning to make a new quilt but haven’t decide yet who should I give to.  This one, I will try to make Dresden Flower quilt, a little bit smaller than I used to make. Have to tell you first that I am still a beginner but I’m quite like it.  Making quilt is quilt challenging. I still need to make more petals for the Dresden.  Altogether should be around nearly 400 petals for this project.  Hopefully I can start working put it together within this week.
