I’m not a Quilter, really. I’m a Quilter Wannabe, but that’s okay too. I have tried Crazy Quilting (no rules-sewing), free form patchwork, EPP, and now modern style quilting. I love sewing simple without patterns, like the lovely log cabin for pillows and stripes in a row.

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 […]
