A Finished Quilt. Just for fun, an easy half square triangle quilt using some of my favorite fabrics, including quite a number of beautiful Liberty of London Tana Lawn floral prints, all paired up with a range of neutral solid fabrics. I really do like the contrast that the solid fabrics have brought to both the printed fabrics and the quilt. I spent quite some time arranging andread more

That’s right I got out of the house today and took a long drive through the countryside to visit a quilt shop for a change instead of placing an order on the computer. I wanted to find some fabric for the backing for the star quilt – and I just needed to get out for […]read more
After a year and a half in our new house, I guess it is time to take you on a tour of my sewing room. Our home is fairly big so that each one of us can have his own studio. That was a dream-come-true!
Only recently, my husband and a good carpenter friend, finished making the tables of my room. He made me a built-in table for the serger, a table for my PC, a nesting table for my sewing machine and my all time favorite a cutting table. I “inherited” from a very good friend of mine an ...read more

I mentioned way back in January that I wanted to improve the shopping experience for you guys on mobile devices. Like I said back then, more than half of you are shopping on our website on mobile devices (that’s a third on tablets and a little more than one in five on mobile), yet when it comes to actually buying, desktop has the highest conversion rate. So that tells me something. Also, Google decided to prioritise sites that are mobile-friendly in search results. And that’s super important for a small business like ours.
So over the weekend when ...read more
We were recently invited to a graduation party. It was the same day as Kalissa’s bridal shower and we didn’t get a chance to make it but we did send a gift…a quilt.
Kelli had some babysitting for her when she was growing up and she spent some time at my childcare in the summer. She’s the sweetest gal. She’s one of those gals that still talks to me and doesn’t seem to mind. She’s just two years younger than our Kalissa so the two of them enjoy getting together and catching up ...read more
I've been longing to do some classes with Di Ford Hall. I've been on the waiting list at Sewn and Quilted, for a what seems like ages, but finally I enjoyed my first class with this lovely and inspiring lady. I was totally captivated by Di and came home wanting to fussy cut pentagons forever. She is a wonderful teacher, I learned so much just by listening to everything she said to each student.
