Who's The Crazy In The Corner?


I've said it before and I'll say it again.


Quilters are crazy.

The amount of effort and time it takes to make a quilt is enough to make my "Results Priority-Zone" personality go haywire. (But yet, I keep trying. So maybe I'm the crazy one)

If you've ever received a handmade quilt, rest assured that you're liked. Very much. I can't think of any other reason why someone would make someone else a quilt. (So, HM....Laura really likes you)

I finally ventured into making a "real" quilt. With an actual quilt pattern and with blocks that are smaller than the size of a table.

The quilt design, from Amy Butler, is aptly named the "Belle" quilt. I shall name mine the "Izzybelle" quilt. "Izzy" for the part where I winged it, as I'm hard press to follow a pattern word for word. Must be the rebellious side of me. =D

The fabric is girly, cheerful and hopeful...perfect for spring! And if the quilted part doesn't scream "I'm a GIRL" loud enough, the backing sure does.

Ruffly, fleece-y goodness.

I got tired of being attacked by 5 yards of fleece everytime I try to open my craft closet.

And because I love all you readers (all 5 of you, 80% of which are family members) so much, I'm dedicating this quilt to you.

 But I'm keeping it. =D

 (Besides, there's absolutely no reason why you'd need a quilt in the perpetually hot, gloriously sunny, breezy-balmy Malaysia!)

The fabric's gorgeous!

I've gotta figure out how to get you fully on the quilt-band-wagon, though...I simply can't understand how it's possible that someone NOT like to make quilts!

jie, it's LOVELY. i tried quilting once (and with the persistence of a donkey, did not get very far) and made the terrible mistake of starting with squares the size of an eraser. woe me.

Amanda --- I have one foot on and one foot off....i can't say that this will be my last time venturing into the quilting world...i'm a sucker for punishment, i guess!!

ling - LOL! yes, not a good idea to try it with blocks so small! it's the cutting that irks me...

mom - no, your cross-stitch is time consuming too...i just have no patience.
