To set a date line...

Last sunday afternoon (27/02/2011) I watched astro movie entitled Julie/Julia Project, a story about the heroine wanted to become a writer.. she mentioned something about not being able to completed what ever plan she planned to do.  She create a blog and set a date line to do all the menu wrote by Julia Child " Mastering the Art of France Cooking".  The moral I got from watching these movie was I need to set my own DATE LINE for my DWP project. Is one year too long or too short?? Today is 1st March, maybe I could start counting my date line from this date..

To be fair with myself, I've actually done the sample from the template that I made in January, and I thought that it's gonna be too big from the actual size..

Here is the fabric that my daughter has chosen for the DWP bed quilt.

 Hopefully, I have the guts to cut the fabric into small pieces.

Progress for DWP..

Dah masuk minggu ke 2 bulan Februari, saya baru berpeluang untuk buat "post" ini, Tahun 2011 terlalu teruja nak buat patchwork double wedding pattern (DWP). Kain 100% kapas saya dah beli pada penghujung tahun 2010 di Cottage Patch Ampang sempena jualan hujung tahun mereka (potongan 20%). Pemilihan fabrik dan warna saya serahkan pada Nur Syafirah (my daughter). Hopefully her choice of colours and design will works well with the pattern.

"The Grandmother Garden pattern" is actually in my list of patchwork project. I've bought the template for the hexagon as well, but only now I came across with this tutorial by Karen which is very easy to do.
