Around the World Blog Hop

Hellooo, people of the World ! I am participating in the “Around the World Blog Hop” that's been going around and have been tagged by the absolutely wonderful Carol, the Happy Turtle. She is one of the earliest bloggers from India who stepped into blogosphere and, in fact, has a second blog dedicated to quilting in India, called, well, 'Quilting in India'.

The Blog Hop needs me to answer a few questions and if text bores you, please feel free to skip straight to the much more interesting pics :-)

1. What am I working on? 

Since I JUST finished this adorable quilt for a friend's 6 year old son who is a huge Lego fan, I guess I am working on 'putting up the pics on the blog' ! Surely, that counts :-)

The center panel is resized and adapted from the tute by 'Designed by Mom'.

The backing fabric was perfect for a li'l boy, with monsters, dinos and motorbikes.

The young man looks pretty happy I'd say :-)

I am working on the awesome and challenging MMDQ (Madhu Mathur-Desi Quilters) BoM and here's my first block.

Whilst I gather the courage to start the second one, in the meantime, I hope to make companion placemats to this lovely commissioned Christmas Table Runner. (pattern inspiration - Pinterest)

Maybe this year I will have some Christmas Tree Skirts ready for the store, 'The Square Inch'. The Studio, meanwhile, has been busy hosting Sewing, Quilting, Pouch Making and Zentangle Workshops.

And I have been busy hopping between cities holding demos and impromptu sew-ins.

Oh, forgot...we need to move on to question #2 !

2. How does my work differ from others of its genre? 

Having a Bernina showroom with a creative centre attached makes my work kinda different. I now look forward to learning from the great masters and in turn enjoy helping other quilters find their wings.

3. Why do I write/create what I do?

 'coz I don't know any better and the day I do, I'll write/create better.

4. How does my writing/creating process work?

Starts with a germ of an idea..usually a nagging, irritating one. And it won't go away until I start chopping fabric. Sometimes I do a rough sketch to do the math but its mostly improv. I let it take me where it wants to. Sometimes its absolute genius and sometimes, pure stupidity.

So, thanks for visiting. My turn to tag two other bloggers. Do visit their blogs and you'l be happy you did. Trust me.

Tagging the lovely and multi-talented Madhu who blogs at 'Betukbandi', and, the very dynamic and very creative Shruti who blogs at 13 Woodhouse Road.

Both ladies are extremely skilled sewists and can turn a mere thought into fabric art.

Happy blog hopping !
