Colorful crochet

Quilting might be my first passion, but I also love to crochet and knit. It’s a relaxing evening activity while watching the news or enjoying a movie.

A ton of online classes!

I grew up and continue to live in Ecuador, a country rich in handicrafts, from weaving to wood carvings to ceramics, and just about anything and everything you could imagine in between. Except for quilting. My knowledge of quilts was reduced to photos from magazines and glimpses provided sometimes in movies. Not enough information to […]

My Dream House

It’s back! The CD version of this collection, published initially by The Electric Quilt Company, was discontinued a couple of years ago. As I keep receiving requests for it, I finally got around to putting a  downloadable version together, which is now available through our online shop!

We post the dates in which blocks are published on each BOM page, and send out a newsletter with reminders. In December we actually send out 3 reminders for visitors to download the blocks […]

Something else I did do throughout June was experiment with a little fabric dyeing, using natural products.

A few little lizards

Once again, time has slipped away from me and I’ve fallen behind in my blogging. Ooops! All I can say in my defense is that this time of year is particularly intense for me, with all the patterns we offer as part of our traditional Christmas in July series.

At long last: a finished project!

Little by little I am moving forward with unfinished projects left on the back burner way too long.

Catching up: the Bedroom, the Porch, and the Garage

There hasn’t been a lot of sewing around here, but I have been working diligently on my Dollhouse BOM blocks, and a few other projects I am still finishing up.

The Nursery and Bathroom

Working on the 2018 Dollhouse BOM is certainly providing me with an opportunity to try out different techniques.

Enough is enough

I learned to crochet at my grandmother’s knee when I was five years old.  Quilting is quite certainly my true passion… but I always seem to have some crochet project going on. In part because of that strong connection with my grandmother, in part because it is easy enough to pick up at any moment, […]

    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.
