Finishing the Low Volume Quilt from From My Carolina Home

When we left off the Low Volume Quilt, I had the top made and was ready to quilt it. I loaded it on the longarm and auditioned thread colors. It might have been nice quilted in pink, but I didn’t have pink cotton thread. I think kid quilts should be quilted with cotton rather than polyester thread. So, I chose to do it in white cotton thread, with Warm and Natural all cotton batting. The backing is the same dot print as the border.

I still had the pantograph called Pansies from Urban Elementz on the longarm machine from ...

Low Volume Quick Quilt from From My Carolina Home

These pretty pastels were part of a box of fabrics that a friend of mine was destashing. I thought they were lovely, soft and perfect for a little quilt for charity.

I originally planned to write this up for a guest blogger post for another blogging event, but I changed my mind and decided to show it here. I actually started it a couple of weeks ago during a Zoom Virtual Retreat.

This is an easy and fast way to put together a quilt top, just sew long width of fabric strips together in any width you want. These are ...

Double Wedding Ring Quilt from Quiltmanufaktur


Vor ziemlich genau zwei Jahren habe ich einen neuen Workshop für das BERNINA Creative Center konzipiert, den Double Wedding Ring.

Ich bekomme bei der Gestaltung von neunen Workshops immer freie Hand und kann Sachen ausprobieren, die ich selber interessant finde, aber noch nie gemacht habe. Das ist ein spannender Prozess, denn das Aussuchen und Ausprobieren klappt nicht immer auf Anhieb.....

Den Double Wedding Ring hatte ich schon lange im Auge. Das ist so eine romantische Idee hinter dem Motiv, oder? Die vielen Varianten, die man im Netz findet, sind für dich gesehen schon eine Herausforderung und sich dann seine eigene ...

The Quiet Road from From the Strawberry Patch...

There's a kind of quiet the descends on the house after children leave; it's a weird stillness that settles around you like a blanket, one that's impossible to shake off. You're aware of the hush all over again each time you pick up a forgotten Lego, book or sock from its resting place left in their wake. It's the same every time, sweet memories of time shared together filling up the empty spots

SEW THE RAINBOW! from That's Sew Kerry

Travelling Quilt Bee 2019





A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to be part of a Travelling Quilt Bee it was an amazing experience for me, I made some great 'virtual' quilt friends many of whom I am still in regular quilty contact with, as well as being a great opportunity to try new things and develop my skills. This was largely due to the fact that back then I wasn't overly brave when it came to fabric choices, colour palettes or block/pattern choices and had a real tendency to stick to what I knew and ...

6 Köpfe 12 Blöcke Skill Builder from Quiltmanufaktur

Anfang des Jahres hatte ich bereits meinen Skill Builder Quilt fertig, aber aus privaten Gründen nicht die Kraft und Muse, Bilder zu machen und einen Text zu formulieren. Ich dachte mir, dass wenn es mir besser ginge, die Zeilen dann schon von selbst fließen würden. Das jetzt eine andere, sehr irritierende Zeit mir die Möglichkeit gibt, diesen Blogpost zu schreiben....


Ich bin meinen 5 'Quilt-Buddies' Dorthe Niemann, Katharina Märcz, Verena Schmidt, Nadra Ridgway und Gesine Brüning so sehr dankbar für das Stemmen dieses gemeinsamen Projekts! Drei Jahre haben wir unsere Köpfe zusammen gesteckt und dabei sind drei wunderbare Quilt Projekte ...

6 Köpfe 12 Blöcke: Mariners Compass from Quiltmanufaktur


Willkommen auf meinem Blog!

Heute geht es in den Oktober mit dem Skill Builder Quilt beim 6 Köpfe 12 Blöcke Quilt Along und ich darf euch den Mariners Compass vorstellen.


Etwas History

Der Block Mariners Compass ist ein sehr alter Patchwork Block und wurde vermutlich schon im 18. Jhr verwendet. Er basiert auf der Windrose / Kompassrose, die auf Segelkarten gezeichnet wurden. Diese dienten den Schifffahrern zur Navigation, bevor der Magnetkompass in die moderne Seefahrt Einzug fand. Um die Pfeile markanter zu gestalten, wurden sie mittig geteilt. Das eine Teil des Pfeils wurde hell-, das andere Teil dunkel gestaltet. Dadurch erreichte ...

Transitioning from From the Strawberry Patch...

I teased with this picture of stacked stars in a previous post. This quilt is a welcome transition from all those bright fabrics used when making Frank. This is a long-abandoned project that needed to be brought to the front burner. I am inspired by Country Threads and their "Dirty Dozen" challenge this year. (The premise: identify 12 UFOs and give each a unique number from 1-12. Each month a
