What I most enjoy doing with my time!

A little memory quilt

The youngest of my father’s sisters suffered from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease for several years, during which time her husband was able to take care of her at home. Their three daughters live in other countries and came and went as much as possible, in an enormous effort to support their parents during those difficult […]

Free-form Poppies

A lazy Sunday afternoon. After a week of intensive work, I needed (and deserved!) a little break. Time to sew!

Heavenly Angels

Another project finished. AND… it’s only taken me eleven years to do so! Some project seem to take forever.

Flower Power Quilt Along

Like any other quilt maker, my #1 “complaint” is the lack of time to sew everything I would like to sew. So when it comes to other designers’ BOMs and quilt alongs, I tend to admire from a distance, and very, very rarely participate. I have enough UFOs as it goes, and don’t want to […]

Lots of face masks

Just like everyone else on the planet, my niece and I have also been busy making face masks.

Our 2020 Block-of-the-Month projects

Oh, boy, oh boy, oh boy! As much as I love to draw and prepare quilt patterns, I rarely have time to sew up all these projects. I think this year I am going to have to make the effort. If I say so myself… I’m loving our 2020 BOM projects!

Scandinavian Flowers

A new year… In looking back at what I was able to accomplish during 2019, I am happy. It seems I never have enough time to do all I would like to, but last year I came close.

More panel fabric

Trying to decide what to do with more panel fabric. Enter this beautiful wine-themed fabric… yards and yards of it. What was I thinking?

The woes of an independent designer

It’s been a hard year. At times scary. Challenging, frustrating, even annoying. And also exciting, invigorating, inspiring… happy.

A panel quilt

A gazillion years ago I purchased a whole bunch of fabric panels on a super sale. Fast forward to today… and I still haven’t done anything with any of those panels.

Polka Dot Quilt

This has been a busy, busy year so far. And I haven’t been able to do as much sewing as I would have liked to. Which is about to change, as I begin to concentrate on making Christmas gifts.

Another project finished: Sister’s Choice

My second oldest UFO. Finally finished this year. This quilt was thought up about 15 years ago, and initially was supposed to be a gift.

    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.
