Mosaic baby quilt

My baby hidden behind the quilt. She so obligingly helped me photograph the quilt. This one goes to a new baby in the family. The pattern is Mosaic from Modern Minimal

Sushi and a glass of wine

When you love to eat, anything related to food becomes fun.Me and my sister Shweta had a lovely time last weekend at a sushi making party at a hotel in Pune. Sushi is essentially seafood and rice rolled in a sheet of seaweed. We had a good time watching types of sushi being made. The chef made it look so simple. And it was simple....till it was time to cut the maki with a huge chef's knife. Some of us did get it right though...without accidents. All the foodies gathered there had a go at rolling their own Sushi....and we got to eat our own creations. I had the distinction of being the only vegetarian in the assemblage.

 This is the one that i loved the most however couldn't eat it.....California Maki.

Me....trying a hand at rolling the Sushi.

Yay!!! i did it!!

Vacations and excuses for lazing around

It’s been a while since I posted anything on my blog. It has been a fun filled summer vacation for us with little trips around the town to places my kid loves, mangoes and more mangoes. We ate mangoes from breakfast till post dinner. If I put on a little weight now all these mangoes would have contributed to a noble cause.
 The woods near my place are much loved and frequented.  We went on frequent walks to see the peacocks and peahens wandering around the woods.
Summer was also a flurry of birthdays and parties including that of my princess. She turned 5 this year. 

Now you know why I haven’t touched fabric and quilting for the past 2 months. I have a couple of WIPs that I intend to finish now that the school has begun. Hopefully I will do so soon.

Baby Pansy quilt

With the vacations well under i hardly find time to sew. Apart from enjoying the summer, mangoes and the kiddo's antics i managed to complete one baby quilt. 
I do have a baby in sight who can use this one! :)

MBS Baby life quilt

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.

My new year activities

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 :).
