Solstice Stars Series: Whirling Star

Time seems to run so slow in this 2 days, I was glad when 2nd Block Tutorial of Quilt Along of Solstice Stars Series from Fresh Lemons has been posted. I love paper piecing and this tutorial is very helpful. Can't wait for week 3 for another Solstice Star.

Meanwhile, I hope my knitting project will be done by this week.. My daughter wants a new hat, and I think I need one too ;)

Chinese Lantern

Today I made this 8"x12" Lantern block to congratulate my chinese friends who celebrate Chinese Lunar New Year. I found the idea in here.

Yesterday our neighbor sent us a box of Nian gao, known as Chinese New Year pudding, made up of glutinous rice flour, wheat starch and brown sugar. Delicious to eat Nian gao with hot tea without sugar.
In Chinese family their children will greet their parents by wishing them a healthy and happy new year, and recieve money in red paper envelopes (Ang Pow).

Ribbon Star vs Rainbow Cupcake

So funny.. a couple hours before, I said I don't wanna to get near my sewing machine this weekend.
But, because of my daughter busy baking in the kitchen and I should watch over her. She didn't want me to help her.. "I can do it, mom!".. so I just watch her from dining table.

What should I do then? .. Well, I took some bright color fabrics and cut them and start to touch my sewing machine again (hohoho) .. Ribbon Star tutorial, here.


My daughter's rainbow cupcake came out beautifully, how about mine?


So wish me luck!

Twister - part:2

Finished before weekend .. yeahhh!
I have another plan for this weekend, don't wanna get near to my sewing

I combined my twister block with Wonky Stars. You can find Wonky Star tutorial here.
It's really fun project to make.

Lil' Obi always playing around since beginning. He always pounced on the Twister and Wonky Star. Maybe he wants a quilt too. ( I will think about it, Obi!)

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

Twister - part:1

No more templates...
No more tracing...
No more slipping...
No more frustration..

Only Fun!
(that's what they say about this tool)

Ahhaaa, No more frustration!!! .. yes, this one is what I need :))
Find tutorial here.

He is curious with this tool. But watch out Lil' Obiwan, it's not yours!

I need to put him on a bed, so I can work with my rotary cutter.

Only need some 5"square (assorted fabrics) and 3"strips for border.

Will be continued later ;)
