WIP continued!!

More blocks for Nikhil's quilt. I love the process...first decide on the animal, then look for a picture for reference, then draw it, choose the fabrics (this is a really cool bit), trace on interfacing, cut out all the bits and then applique it!!! Its fun to see it develop it as I sew, hence I don't plan the details too much ahead....rather like my water colours!

WIP: Quilt for Nikhil

So many changes in our lives as we packed up our home of 12 years (40 odd years in Kolkata)  to relocate to Bangalore. What keeps me comfortable is the needlework that goes with me wherever I go....its a constant! I so enjoy working by hand, feel I have better control of my stitching!!

This is one of 11 blocks I am making for Nikhil's quilt. Hopefully will have it ready for his christening.
