Scrappy Potholders

A scrappy lap quilt

Last week, while dusting/cleaning my sewing studio, I came across a bag that apparently went through three different moves from one house to another without ever being opened up and unpacked.

In as much as possible, weekends I try to dedicate a day to either sew, sew, sew, or to take an online class or follow some tutorial and learn something new. And, of course, sew. 🙂

Free Motion Quilting a Sampler

I am a Craftsy addict. 🙂 Because there is no quilting tradition in my country, and nowhere for me to take classes locally, this has been a wonderful way for me to continue to learn new techniques and improve my quilting skills.

    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.
