IMQG Swap and WIP

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'.


  1. I love these colours together, and the design is a perfect showcase for them. No wonder it has already been claimed. So fun and cosy!

  2. WOW Shilpa, Thats a beautiful quilt. I am quite a new quilter... well have made regula "join the squares patchwork quilts... but now have moved to triangles. so working on my first zig-zag quilt. ( just wanted to check, do you normally use cotton sarees as batting or do you use regular batting as well.... Thanks ... was a pleasure visiting your blog

  3. Diptee, i generally use flannel blankets that you can get in DMart as batting. They aren't too thick but are extremely well behaved during quilting.

    1. Thanks Shilpa, unfortunately ther isnt any DMart in Kolkata :(. Will have to check at other places here for flannel blankets. or maybe go for fleece blankets. :)

      Thanks again
