Mongolian quilters

There is a nice article about Mongolian quilters in Mongolian, sorry. But at the end of the article there are some photos. Please click on link and scroll done to see photos.

Ts.Selenge, a Mongolian girl, while studying in the States for her lawyer degree learnt how to make quilt. After returning to Mongolia she started to help unemployed women to learn the art and bring some income to families.

Various international quilters came to give lessons, now a New Zealander Kay Akoman/ Кей Экомен (not sure how to write the name in English) is giving lessons. After her lessons, she will sew 30 baby quilts and will donate to a Maternaty Hospital in Ulaanbaatar.

Houston! We do not have a problem!

I think I solved my twister quilt problem. I looked at it for three nights while making a new bags and finishing others. Finally, puzzle is solved! I looked on internet for similar quilts and tried to understand their layouts too. Tomorrow morning I can start sewing. Thumbs up!

Probably, I might find a problem after looking at it with a fresh eye. Because I used two fabrics with big patterns. I should have used just one with big patterns and another with smaller patterns. Nevermind!

Here are my two new bags photo. I will give a workshop in November at Patch-Mania. I love my creations!

Inspiration! Full Stop!

After reading Angie's blog last week, I suddenly inspired to make a quilt. I have not made any for a long time. I have to say that from the beginning Angie was my mentor to start quilting, although I resisted for year or two not to start new hobby. Anyway, here is what she wrote on her blog and I decided it is time to start quilting just before 2012 arrives. It seened so easy :)

I did not have template to make a twister quilt and of course I googled. I found this site and I made my own template and now I have a puzzle to make. I was wake until midnight last night playing with my quilt still did not manage to put them back together :(

Now it seems like not so easy. I sewed another 5" blocks with Christmas fabrics. Oh dear! Hopefully, I will finish before 2012.
