I am so happy to get the pattern and tutorial of the Secret Garden Quilt done. Thanks to all who are patiently waiting for the pattern and tutorial to get ready. Click page 2 for all the details you need.
I spent almost a year to get it up here and on my daughter’s bed, from idea to drawing to the actual quilt, then, to this pattern and tutorial sharing. The reason behind this long stretch of time is because I have too many tasks on hand. I was being carried away with and lost my sense of priority. In early last year, we bought a new condominium (yes, we are moving from a landed double story house to a condo, crazy!) so that we could have a place of our own. The quilting idea emerging into my mind and I told myself that I am going to make each of my kids at least a quilted blanket for their new bedrooms. A quilt that they can remember for their whole life and perhaps can make it an heirloom piece to show the next generation “See, this is designed and made by your grandma.”… ok, maybe just a photo to show if the quilt is too tattered to display…
I bought a Bernina B550 QE (quilter’s edition) from Bernina Malaysia and million thanks to Kelvin who came all the way up to Penang to demonstrate how to use the machine to the fullest. I really love this machine as it has a cruise control on the sewing speed, the BSR stitch regulator, the hands-free foot lifter and many more….. not to mention the reliability of the machine which is well known to be able to pass down for generations. Love love love it!
Hope you will quilt one soon. I am almost finished with my son’s quilt, the “Road Runner”…… stay tuned!
