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’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.
Oh, I also worked for a while as Editor in Chief for a Swedish quilting magazine.
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 […]
Do you remember the log cabin pincushions that I made this summer? I added one of these to the Pincushion Challange in September when the theme was recycle, a theme that is allways appliable on me. You can try to find my cushion among the other beautiful ones in the September album (and you’ll get […]
I love the look of quilted items! So I buy fabric to quilt with, but I almost never quilt. It just takes to much time to start a new project, and cut all those squares – yuck! I think I need to bring my mom here so she can cut up the fabric for me […]
Let me present to you my very first finished quilt: It’s a blue baby quilt. Each square is 15 x 15 cm. I’m so glad I finished this gift in good time. It’s about two weeks until it’s recipient is born, and I will become an aunt (no, it’s not my 13 year old brother […]
Is summer over already? The rain keeps poring down any way (+40 to 50 mm so far), so I’ve been hiding in my mothers small but beautiful sewing room. Not to steal her fabric I looked in her sewing trash bin, and found lots of small scraps which I feel is to good to throw […]
I got this great book from my mother about applique, patchwork and quilting by Elsie Svennås. It’s a second hand book from 1978 and it has some inspiring colour and b/w photos. There’s lots of orange and brown of course (hello 1970!), but I like it a lot. The techniques are old but still applicable […]
Moms summer bag is blue, mine is yellow and pink – but we both made a appliqu? house and apple tree on it!
Last entry was about my pink tote bag in crazy quilting. I also mentioned that my mum used the same pattern and made it in her favorit color blue. Here is some pictures of her tote bag: The bag from the top, showing the zipper she sewed on and the cool pockets inside. Hers is […]
