tulip hearted quilt-part II

Now I know what should I put at the back of my quilt. Fleece blanket! I might choose pink or black color and I know where to get it. Last time I did buy one for my sister at Kamdar,MV. It was quite cheap though. I think the price was RM15 per each. And for the background of my quilt I think I will go for the english cotton that I see at Romantika outlet in Shah Alam. RM15 per metre but a quarter should be fine for my quilt. Can't wait to buy them this weekend. I am really into quilting right now. I just joined the quilting forum at and there is a lot of information (techniques, pattern, tips,etc) that I can use for my quilting project. I hope there will be more project that I can accomplish. More and more from black book of sewing!!challo!

tulip hearted quilt-part I

I am so excited for this project. My 1st attempt to do quilt. never done one before. i might not have all the quilt cutter...board? or anything...but I'll try to make this one happen. This one is for my best friend,Norli for her new born baby ,Eidil Khadijah. I hope they will like it!
This is the pattern that i'm using for this project. Got it from free pattern
It looks simple but believe me,it is not easy (I mean..for beginner like me). This design was made by Mary Graham but I did some changes on it. Accidentally actually! So, I renamed it as Tulip Hearted Quilt. You wanna know why? Hehehe.Just look at the images that I uploaded will know why..I'm still in an early stage and luckily I still got few beautiful fabrics which i bought from Ebay last few months ago. At last i know what to do with those fabrics.

Very sweet color..

The fabrics has been cut into few small pieces. I decided to make 24 colorful hearts for Eidil's quilt.

Just to show the process of combining the patterns.

Errkk....and this is what happen when I get so over excited.Supposely this is a heart pattern but i forgot to add allowance on one side of that heart. So, it becomes unbalanced. That is why.. I decided to alter back the heart to become..Tulip!!It looks like tulip right? So, from beginner suddenly transform to Tulip Hearted! Designed by Jessie! hehehe..Thank god i can still continue my quilt.This is the basic idea on how i susun all these cute tulips.

That's the only thing that i did last night. I still need to buy few fabrics for the background. Green looks great too right? Soft pink maybe? Ermmhh...nvmind.Let just wait and see what's the final decision. Till my fingers meeting this keyboard again. Challo!
