The real home sweet home mini quilt

J  managed to complete my home sweet home mini quilt a day before going back to my hometown.  Here is my little home sweet home mini quilt.  The idea comes from deliciously tempting colorful donuts.  So I am making the real sweet home mini quilt, with maringue and doughnuts and beautiful vintage lace as my decoraitve details.  Would you like to join me for some doughnuts and tea , everyone ?


With 2 love birds (me and hubby) cheering our home ^v^

The letters were outlined using embroidery stitch  ^v^

Welcome to my home, everybody ^v^

A little gift from my husband ^v^

I am madly in love with teacups especially those with vintage and French style designs.  Lately in Kuala Lumpur, a lot of shopping malls are flooding the lifestyle center with beautiful teasets like this.  Gosh !  I am not sure this is a good or bad news for me because I will always end up buying a piece of tea cup before I realize (really !!? )  hehe ….   I know ladies always find good reason to get something they love. 

My husband knows me well, before I knew it, he brought this little gift for me then.  Wow wow wow !  Can’t believe simple pretty thing made me so happy.  This really made my day.  

Also today, the letters are readily iron onto the fabrics with the help of the wonderful freezing paper.  Now I am going to slowly sew it onto the background. 

1.5 hour later ...... my applique letters are beautifully sewn onto the background.  I am still stuck in the design of how I should present it further,  I will call it a day.  Sometimes you just can rush too much when making quilt project because one little mistake will make you very 'uncomfortable' with the result  My way is to take it slow and steady ..... ^^
