Time to brag: Opera iO

2014-309You will recall that one of the sacrifices made after moving out of town was Thursday sewing with my sewing circle. Fortunately for me, a year ago precisely my niece Ana Lía decided to join me on those days, and I finally had someone to share sewing with again. We have had to suspend those get-togethers for the time being, what with my move further away from her and because she decided to go back to school this year… Read More »

501 Quilt Blocks (book review)

2014-285Although I have quite an extensive collection of quilting books, I still have a soft spot in my heart for the very first book that started my quilting library. I don’t know if it is just because as the only quilting book in my possession at that time I perused it so much until I left it completely dog-eared, or because it was gifted to me by my beloved Jared. :) In any case, I’d like to share my thoughts on in today.

It’s a wrap! (Book review)

  • Angie Padilla

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
