I had always wanted to make this quilt. It is so simple yet so appealing. One of my all time favorite tutorials from the Moda Bake Shop. I feel this is going to be a baby quilt year for me if i don't get out of the habit of loving quick finishes.

The best thing that's happened this year is that things are picking up at the India Modern Quilt Guild. Now we have new office bearers and a Quilt giveaway already happening. 2013 sure looks like an exciting year for the IMQG. I only hope I will be able to participate in every activity.
December last year went into a flurry of weekend trips. My family loves these little outings since it is difficult to coordinate everyone’s schedules for a long trip. We went to a beach in December and the kiddo has a lot of fun. I am thankful for a daughter who finds enjoyment in any given situation or place or weather as long as she is well fed. A couple of days back we went climbing a fort nearby and she loved it too. My limbs are still protesting any movement but she is back to her hopping self.
All this is indeed taking a toll on my sewing time though. I do have some WIP’s but not enough to share anytime soon. There’s this one that has been in the making for a while as a baby quilt. This one’s a wonky squares block that I found the tutorial for at Cluck Cluck Sew. All i need now is to finish this quilt AND find a baby for it :).

With the hustle and bustle of Diwali where i made a lot of stuff that i couldn't eat and went through the agony of watching people eat my stuff and pitying me.....i was caught up with a few family gatherings and engagements which lasted till last week. All through this i could only look at my fabric and my machine and sigh. I was then inspired by my neighbor and friend, whose duties include prodding and pushing me to quilt, to make a baby quilt. Here it is - the kiddo kindly obliged to hold it up...

Things are picking up at the India Modern Quilt Guild. After the buddy challenge we are onto the IMQG Swap. The partners are informed and everyone seems to be busy sewing. Everyone is being super secretive and I just cannot wait to find out who is doing what for whom! I know my partner so I have an idea what she would prefer and knowing her skills I know I am going to get something very beautiful. I just cannot reveal what I have made for her but trust me I am dying to! So here’s a sneak peak.
I am also in the middle of a project that i am absolutely in love with. I generally prefer to work with solids more than prints. A few days back i saw this quilt called the 1930's Summer perspective at the Moda Bake shop. I loved it so much that i couldn't get it out of my head. Coincidentally, i had all the fabric i needed in my stash. So here's the quilt top ready to be sandwiched and quilted. The kiddo has claimed this one for her own and has helped me a lot while working on this quilt. She named it as 'The Rainbow Quilt'.
