I am new in this field of quilting as I never had a chance to do much quilting in Malaysia. We do not use quilt very much with the hot tropical weather. However, since I am now here in Australia, I thought I might take this time to make sure I make some quilt and pick up some new skills as well.

I decided to the buy the lowest price of the computerized machine Janome had when I got here in Australia. I got this machine for only $399… but I had to invest more $ on the darning foot and walking foot. I got the computerized one just because I wanted something a little higher than the basic sewing machine.

Little Man Quilt Simplify Book Baby Quilt



Square Maze Free Motion Quilting Design

I machine quilt this with a bright green/yellow thread just so that it stands out at the plain black top and bottom border. I use Janome open toe darning foot and find that it is a bit more difficult doing this “square maze pattern” than the standard stippling, but it’s worth it.

I made this quilt for my LO’s first Birthday.

The quilt pattern is Little Man, from Camille’s book : Simplify. It suits my little boy so much – he turns one when I got this quilt done!

Simple Baby Quilt _ Boys _ Animal prints

I am planning to do all of the quilts in that book! Well that might take forever as I probably will have a forever list of quilts to make! There are so many fun and simple projects in the book.

Well, till then

Happy browsing!
