Blog-photos_01 IMG_9014-Modified copy
Hi, Makers! 

Spooky season is here! One of my favorite holidays is Halloween because we get to do so many fun projects here at the studio. This time around the marketing team and I were thinking about all the projects we can create this season so we started looking for inspiration at things we’ve done in the past! 

That’s when we came across a super sweet quilt block I sewed for Instagram! Where I pieced some strips of Halloween-inspired colors from our Pure Solids range, applied Decostitch Elements in “Stellar” on top, and reverse appliqued to reveal the ...

Spring Broken from Sew Preeti Quilts

The best flowers are at the Keukenhof in Amsterdam. A bit out of my reach, mostly.

Keukenhof Gardens

The Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania are huge and absolutely beautiful, but still a few hours from me.

The Cherry Blossoms in Washington DC are more accessible and I don't mind the long train ride although I will avoid the nightmarish parking in downtown DC. 

From 2008. My first time :-) 

So beautiful

Due to their popularity and the huge crowds (then), everyone was photobombing someone else's picture. The best pictures were taken ...

Celebrate the Spring Season: Pollinate Fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Pollinate_banner BLOG

Is anyone else a Spring baby? My birthday is at the end of March, and of course, Springtime is one of my favorite times of the year! Last year during spring, the world turned upside down and we can all admit it has been a wild ride, but I’m so thankful to have found a new hobby that brought me joy to my life- Gardening! I started my gardening journey 6 months ago, by creating my own little raised bed in my backyard, and as soon as my first tomato seed sprouted, I fell in love. Now that spring ...

Lonestar Quilt from Quiltmanufaktur

Im April 2017 habe ich diesen Lone Star Quilt als Beispiel mit den Kursteilnehmern im BERNINA Creative Center genäht. Er lag lange Zeit unvollendet im Regal, bis ihm Maria Dlugosch jetzt dieses fantastische Quilting verabreicht hat. Eigentlich muss ich entsprechend sagen Not my work!

Not my Work! weil es augenscheinlich das wahnsinnig tolle Quilting ist, das aus dem Patchwork Top erst diesen tollen Quilt macht. Um es gleich vorneweg zu sagen: Maria nimmt keine Kundenaufträge an... daher bin ich wirklich froh, dass sie sich dennoch die Zeit für dieses Stück genommen hat. Es sieht auf jeden Fall nach viel Spaß ...
