Blue Dahlia Quilt

20120722-202824.jpg

Blue Dahlia Quilt I made for my Hubby. He loved blue so I decided to make this Dahlia quilt in blue. This quilt I made when I took the Advance Quilt Course. I bought the fabrics in Singapore. It’s very expensive but the colour I loved. I cannot get this colour in Jakarta. And again, my Hubby didn’t complaint or anything. He supported me with my quilting activities all the way!

I made this quilt for wall hanging, I wanted to hang it in our livingroom, our curtian is blue so This quilt will match our curtain and our room will be nice. The size for this Blue Dahlia is 59 inch x 59 inch. Hand quilted and I choose light blue as background. It looks very nice and pretty and my Hubby loved it too. I hang my Blue Dahlia in my livingroom till now to honour my Hubby.

Here is Maroon Nine Patch Quilt that I made last year. It’s King size bed cover, handquilted and all the fabrics that I used for this quilt I bought in Wichita Falls, Texas. My dear Hubby drove me to a shop that I found the address on the internet, The Enchanted Quilt. As soon as I walked in to the shop I was amazed with this shop’s fabrics collection. I saw one quilt shown on the wall it’s a lap quiilt with nine patch pattern in brown gradation.

I want to make for the same but in red gradation. With the help of the shop lady I choose 6 red colour combination and I was so happy with the colour I picked. Back in the car, my Hubby waiting in the car and he was happy too with fabrics that I bought.

I started to make the quilt with the fabrics and the pattern that I bought in Wichita Falls and it turned out to be beautiful. It was fasting month when I made the quilt, I made that with the help of my Auntie and my houseboy. Beside the bedcover, I also made 2 pillow cases to go with. I planned to use this quilt for my bedroom. I thought it will be nice. And when I told my Hubby about this plan he agreed.

But then after this quilt finished quilted and ready to go, my best friend Puji said that her sister, Annie is looking for bedcover for her friend who will get married soon. Annie then came to my house with her friend Anita to see my quilt collection to choose. And Anita fell in love with my Maroon Nine Patch as soon as she saw it. She insisted to buy that quilt complete with two pillow cases. Well, there goes my Maroon Nine Patch to my first customer ๐Ÿ™‚ I am happy with this and I want to make another one for myself! ๐Ÿ™‚ My first quilt product sold to a bride to be, and I believe this is a good sign! My business will smooth and smell good as good as the smell of jasmine flower that always used in a wedding! ๐Ÿ™‚

Batik is the best

Batik is the best.

I woke up lazily at 2am, switched off my alarm, then slowly sit up. Feel a bit dizzy as I didn’t sleep well. I don’t know why I was restless and had difficulties to sleep. I feel empty again and my heart, I looked at my Hubby’s ย picture above the cabinet before I walked in to the shower.

After showered, I checked my suitcase, locked it and took it out from my bedroom. I looked at my sister who still slept soundly on my bed. I didn’t want to wake her up to say bye. My Mom already up and waiting for me in the livingroom. I pray a while next to my Hubby’s ashes. I wish you were here with me love and go with me for this trip. I love and miss you, Baby…

10 minutes before 3am, my taxi with Golden Bird arrived and I kissed goodbye my Mom. Right before my taxi left my house, I saw my houseboy waving me goodbye.

At Malaysia Airline check in counter, there are many people already in line. And this is fhe first time for me to be inline on economy class for a long time. You always wanted me to fly on business class, Baby. The beautiful memory of our time together struck me again. RIP my love, you’re the best…!!! The girl at the counter was very nice, she arranged the wheel chair for me without any difficulties, everything went so smooth. I love Malaysia Airline, they treat their handicap customer in a very good way. Next time I will fly with Malaysia Airlines again, for sure! The staff wheeled me to Starbucks while waiting for the flight and I ordered hot chocolate and croissant sausage for my breakfast. I hope I can sleep on the plane after I drank this hot choco. I need some more sleep after last night.

The boarding was on time, another good point of Malaysia Airlines, my seat was on the the front row of economy class, this is good. The flight attendants are very nice too in treating the handicap passengers. A Cambodian girl sat next tome me. Her English was poor with her Cambodian accent and made me difficult to understand her ๐Ÿ˜ฆ She tried to talk to me but I didn’t want to talk a lot as I have difficulties to understand her and I want to go to sleep.
