OMG finished

Beleive it or not I have completed my OMG April goal! Yay!

Here is little tip for you. I add my binding on prior squaring the quilt. The backing is stretchy and it is much easier to work with it this way.

Yeah right, I don't really square my quilts. Once you have some pattern and border I rather go by visual appearance than perfectly square quilt.

See no puckers. I quilted some parts by hand. Only two layers - top and batting plus simple echo pattern quilting with zigzag stitch once backing added.

Plus the material is kind of messy once you cut into it. That's why I left it to the very end.

I used zigzag stich on binding as well. It deserves some extra photo shoot so stay tuned for more pics of the whole quilt :)

Le Challenge - fine

Let's try something new for Le Challenge. The theme is FINE.

I bought new bracelet and I thought I could make some too. I used leather scraps. I consider leather as a fine material.

It's pretty easy. I made two because I like to make two at the time. I can either give it to someone or wear them separately or both at the same time. We'll see.

I used baby press buttons as closure

The color of leather I used matches with my new hair. Coincidence? Not really :)

There is fine line between genius and insanity.

2016 - Q2 FAL list

I'm taking different approach this time around. Instead of making my Q2 FAL list crazy long I only kept those projects with progress made.

2016 FAL

My Q1 score is 2/10

Surprise surprise there are only rainbow projects on my list.

#1 Disco quilt - my friend loaded it onto her long arm. We have change things up and I'm so excited about it. I hope to share all details soon.

#2 DM quilt - note to self. FINISH that thing! :) So snugly even with the pins on.

#3 cushion - I need a cushion to go with the quilt right? Yeah, exactly!

OMG April

Let's face it. I did not meet my March goal. Am I going to choose the same one? No! I'll go with one even more ambitious.

I'm going to finish my DM quilt. Yeah! I read my horoscope and I'll have a great month! :) :D

Here is full pic in case you do not remember it.
