Machine Quilting Projects

In 2009 I attended a machine quilting certification program in Kaoshiung, Taiwan. My teacher, Ms. Wu, has been a quilter for over 15 years and is certified as both a hand and machine quilter.

Here are some of the projects I've completed as part of the beginner level class.

This is my hot and spicy tote bag. I used a least 9 different fabric for the bag.
Most of the fabric are made in USA, but the black fabric is from Japan.

My first quilt. This is an Irish chain small quilt using chain-piecing technique. Even though I've read about this technique before, it was still quite a challenge for me to piece the squares and line up each row correctly.

Titled: Sweet Candy Basket

Machine appliqued using Mettler threads. I added some beads and yo-yos to give the quilt some dimension.

I'm currently in the process of adding the binding on my final quilt for the beginning level class. Please stay tuned....
