I have been ill since the Year of the Rooster. Before Chinese New Year, I was busy rushing to quilt the commissioned pineapple quilt. Meeting deadlines at work and staying up late at night to quilt weakened my immunity. I caught the flu bug and ran a fever for the first few days of the Chinese New Year. Urgh! I cannot remember when was the last time I fell so sick before.
The good thing was I managed to finish the binding for the quilt before I fell sick. The quilt measures 105″ x 93, about the size of a king-sized quilt. This is the biggest quilt I have quilted so far. Oh my, this quilt is heavy. I think it must be the cotton batting adding to the weight.
My husband and daughter kindly helped to hold the quilt up while I took the picture.

Let’s see how the quilt looks like using my king-size bed as a model.
This is my first finish for 2017 Q1 FAL. See my goals here
Ok now onto my February goal. I have decided to do something simple using June Tailor’s Charming Circle ruler. I bought this ruler with the intention to sew a denim tote bag. Well I have started. See my WIP.
Now for some good news. I won a prize for my 2016 Q4 FAL finish! Thank you Fluffy Sheep Quilting for sponsoring the prize. In December, during the Sew Mama Sew giveaway, I won a pattern by Sandra (yes another Sandra) of mmm!quilts. These are all my Christmas presents. LOL.
