Ok, enough with the lists mommy, let's just show people who really is the one that works hard to get things done around here!!!

Ok, I think the design looks pretty cool! 
Let me check if you put all the colors in the right place...

Oh, this job is pretty tiring. 
I will sleep on it and I will get back to you with my feedback...

Now that I am rested, I think this design is good... 
However... I think it's a little too traditional, you need a modern spin!

I gave it a spin!! Now it looks modern!

What? You think you may have hard time sewing this design?
Well, that's ok, I still love you even if you don't appreciate my artistic contribution.
Ok, stitch the original design then!

Final layout: Modern Bargello :)
Dimension: 40'' x 40''

Sneak peeks of my Tiny Quilt Challenge and the Halloween Haunts projects! :)

And last, but not least, I want to remind you that I am working on charity quilts, and I would love your help!! Quilts are for a quilt drive to help the kids in the DC General Homeless Shelter. 
And you can help me by donating orphan blocks, partial blocks, or fabric (scraps, strips, leftover, uglies, whatever). 
If you are willing to mail them to me, I could use them to make more quilts for these kids!!! 
If you are up for a loving donation, please send me an email at tweloq[_at_]gmail[dot_com] or leave a comment here with your email address so I could give you my mailing address. I promise that your donation will be used to make some kids happy and feel more loved!! 

Cynthia sent me this wonderful donation! And I already planned the next baby quilt to feature some of those cute panels, so stay tuned for more baby quilts! Thanks Cynthia!!!

How about you? What are YOU up to?
Link it here and share it with me!!


  1. I see your helper enjoys sharing their opinion on how the quilt should look like. Mine does the same I have to take a photo just in case my little black cat decide to re set my blocks and it happens often.

  2. I love kitty helpers. What great progress you made


Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you!
Please share your thoughts on my projects with me!
