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.

Hey Birdie!

What to do when there is no space available any more for wall hanging, and you’re wanting to work on a small quilt? I recently noted I haven’t ever made quilted cushions, so that’s were my focus for small projects has turned now.

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 […]

Quilting practice and a quick project

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.

Floral whimsy… finished at last!

This project has been sitting on my table for months! Christmas and the New Year came and went by, and over that holiday week I actually quilted it. And since then it has continued to sit, waiting for the binding.

Finished quilt sampler

So, with all the wedding hullabaloo, one of the things I had forgotten to post about is my Craftsy 2012 sampler. You’ll remember I started writing about it here.

A quilt sampler

Well, I’m finally back in the quilting mood! That is, as time allows… still. There always seems to be a lot of work that limits my sewing time. Plus running around that means more hours in the car now that I’m living out in the country. However, even though there are still quite a few […]

A little decorative stitching

I am a completely self-taught quilter. Because there is no quilting tradition here in Ecuador, and because my trips back to the U.S. tend to be short and far between, I have not had the opportunity to attend a fair or take a quilting class.

How would you quilt this?

In spite of my good intentions, I only finished half of the UFOs I had planned to complete in February. I won’t be hard on myself – perhaps I was too ambitious. My aim for March, however, is to at least complete the two projects I wasn’t able to work on last month.

What to do with FMQ samples

In those instances where I have decided to machine quilt a project, I like to work on a “warm up” sample to practice a little before starting in. This means that eventually I end up with a little pile of odd-sized quilted pieces with no other purpose in life than to sit there staring at […]

    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.
