Quilting Experiments...

Hey All,

I love quilting.
Though I am not so good at it... I tried to make something simple with the help of this art.

As per Wikipedia : 
Quilting can refer either to the process of creating a quilt or to the sewing of two or more layers of material together to make a thicker padded material. The materials can be sewn together by either designing or piecing or applique or binding or by plenty other ways. Quilting can be done by hand or with the help of sewing machine. 

First I tried to make a dual colored cover for my Mixer n Grinder.
The process:
1) Cut 8 squares of fabric (measurement is as per need).
2) Join the four square pieces together with stitch lines. Repeat for the remaining 4 squares. You will now have two big squares, one for each side.
3) Then cut 2 felt squares whose measurement matches with that of the big square. These will act as padding for the patched squares.
4) Stitch these felt squares with the big squares. I have given multiple stitch lines so that the layers stay together always.
5) I have added a flounce, with pleats at the one side, at the hem.
6) Then for decorating the cover, I have stitched a lace on one side and sewn buttons on the other.

And second one was a Wrap Around, All-Purpose Pouch.

This one has been created by sewing together Tie-Dye cotton fabric, Sponge sheet and lining fabric.
On the inside an elastic has been attached at regular intervals so that you can stuff your belonging in it.
The outer side has been adorned by mirror work and simple Kantha + sequin work.
The belts are of velvet and have press buttons on them.
