First off is a lap quilt that measures 45" x 52" which I've made for my hubby's late grandmother, Zaharah. She turned 90 on the 24th of December, 2010. It was an early birthday gift since I finished this piece in August.
She had/used the quilt for about 7 months until she passed away of old age in late March last year. May her soul rest in peace. Al-Fatehah. Opah we miss you!
This quilt is now in my aunt-in-law's home and is being well used by her grandchildren.
This quilt was done by hand from start to finish. Nordzie, a dear friend of mine - a VERY TALENTED quilter I might add, showed Nahar and I, the steps and techniques used to assemble this quilt.
The 'CatNap' quilt measures 38" square.
Nahar (another good friend) and I purchased our sewing machine about the same time in 2010. Since both of us were relatively new to quilting back then, we took up a beginner's patchwork and quilting class at our LQS in Ampang.
This is the outcome of it. The sampler quilt measures 40" square. The blocks were done by hand and machine. I used machine to stitch the hearts in one of the blocks as I wanted to learn machine applique.
Thanks to Mr. Chan, Ms. Wai and Alice of Cottage Patch, for your patience and guidance! We've enjoyed the weekly sessions whilst we were there.
