I’ve been experimenting some with fabric and paint and sewing this summer. Just playing a bit, having fun and not expecting much of an outcome because I didn’t know what I was doing. When you have no expectations on your creation if often surprises you. Both my experiments turned out really nice and I’m pretty […]

I’m not a Quilter, really. I’m a Quilter Wannabe, but that’s okay too. I have tried CQ as in Crazy Quilting (no rules-sewing), ribbon embroidery and now modern style quilting. I love sewing simple without patterns, like the lovely log cabin for pillows and stripes in a row.
When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I have not a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me. Erma Bombeck As promised, here is mom and the blue quilt she made alongside with me! I decided to make a pink […]
It is finished! My pink quilt is finished! It’s a bundle of love when it is folded like that, and spread out on the floor it is a feast for the eye. I think I’ve used almost every pink fabric that we have and I love love love it! This is the third and last […]
This is part II of Making a Quilt, read part I first starting is easy. I’ve decided on the background fabric! It’s white cotton with green and pink checkers that I found at the thrift store. I have a huge piece of this fabric, 5 meters I think. When we come to this part you […]
You start with a pile of fabric and you envision that beautiful quilt laying on your bed or sofa, all glorious, handmade and original. You have an idea of what you want to create and you start picking your colors. Picking the colors is the best part for me. I think I have an eye […]
When I moved here I lost the possibility to spend lovely inspiring craft nights with my own friends. Since then I’ve been tagging along with my mom to her craft nights and it has been a lot of fun too though different all together. The craft nights with mom’s friends are more about quilting and […]

Quilted cat blanket – because all cats need one! Right? While I made a couple of log cabin pillows this autumn I started to add the scraps and uncut pieces together at random. When I had two big pieces I sewed them together and made quilt for my cat Smilla. I wanted to create a […]
I’m sitting here sipping my ice coffee and thinking about something to write. I’ve been wanting to post these photos of three pillow cases I made for a week now, but couldn’t come up with something to say about them. They are pillow cases, the pattern is kind of free form log cabins. They are […]
I’ve created yet another summer skirt. A quilt skirt with lots of different vintage fabrics that I like. I found all of these fabrics at my mom’s house, and I cut all the squares all by my self this time. Mom has helped me before when I did a blanket (that is not finished yet). […]
When mom was here in October she helped me cut squares from some of the fabrics that I’ve been collecting. I noticed I had quite some fabrics in brown shades, so I decided to make a TV-quilt in browns. I really like browns, especially in a combination with other colours like pink and orange. Mom […]
I made all of my home crafted Christmas presents during December, really in the last minute, I know! But everything was wrapped and ready to go on Christmas Eve, so I’m glad I hurried to make what I had planned to make. To give somebody a home made gift is great, especially when you know […]
