Result of an inspiration……



While browsing online, one day I came upon this book from Denyse Schmidt.


I was really awed by the simplicity and the beauty of her quilt designs, and I really wanted to try it out.  The best thing about her designs are that if you are a quilter, for that matter even a beginner can attempt to make them.  So this time it is an inspired quilting attempt……


Well my attempt at free motion quilting, is not great but I am happy I could manage.   The actual quilt made by Denyse Schmidt is  quite a big one, I just made part of the design which is the cover page of her book.  Her free motion quilting is perfect and a treat to your eyes.

I made it into a table topper as of now, if I feel one day that I should hang it up I can always attach some loops to it.  I give the credit of this design completely to Denyse schmidt.  Thank you Denyse for inspiring me with your designs.  A close up of my quilt……


Meanwhile, there is something else I want to show you all…….



Yay!!!!…. My new sewing machine,  a birthday gift from my DH.   It’s a Janome, horizon – memory craft 8900 QCP. as you all can see.  I think it’s a new model from janome, but it is specifically suitable for quilting. I am yet to open it and try my hands on it,  but the table I have now is very small for this one,  I don’t think I have the patience till I get a table made, so I will have to figure out some way to get my hands on it.    Once I open it up, I will surely put up a picture.

Thank you everyone, for your lovely and generous comments.  Till my next post, Bye…. and Be happy….. Rgds, Preeta..
