Hello! Welcome to my stop on the High Tea Party Blog Tour!

This new collection by Jera of Quilting in the rain (for Lecien Fabrics) is one of my favorite new releases.

The colors are so sweet and charming with various strawberry prints and these tiny floral prints are just adorable.

I have always wanted to make a baby quilt for my little Claire and I am so happy that I met just the right fabrics.

The charm pack was the perfect sized canvas for my little artist. I gave her the bright neutral color prints  and Frixion pen. I asked her to draw things that she wants in her own blanket. She drew herself the biggest and insist that has to be the focal point.  She knows how to design a quilt.:)

The right end bunny is a doll our next door grandma gave her for her birthday. Believe me, that bunny looks exactly like this!  And she didn’t forget to include her mama and sewing machine in her favorites.

I machine stitched using Aurifl 40wt thread.

I have always wanted to take this kind of picture. Your child holding the quilt and you can only see their little finger kind of picture, you know.

I made a recipe book cover too. This project will be in Sewing World magazine December issue.

Please stay tuned for the instruction and my illustration pattern.

 

High Tea is available now at Fat Quarter Shop and Westwood Acres Fabric.

      Hi Anny,
      Making a baby quilt is my very first try and the secret is….that I failed machine stitch. So I hand stitched every pieces. it’s a secret between us! 😉

  4. Love your quilt and of course, the fabrics too! So gorgeous and sweet! I, too, love your inspiration and the many things you create – the recipe book cover is darling! Such talent and thank you for sharing and inspiring!

      Hi, Susan,
      Thank you so much for your sweet message. I have bragged about it to my hubby and my sewing friend.
      I cherish your friendship!!

  5. This is absolutely incredible, Minki. WOW. I think I need your book now. My son loves to draw, and after i’m done working on my book i am making him a full on superhero quilt. This technique is one of a kind, and a perfect way to remember.

  6. That is the sweetest quilt I have ever seen.
