Is the sun shining for you? We’re enjoying a gorgeous day here with 20 degrees Celsius, blue skies and a fierce wind! To celebrate the arrival of Spring I have decided to lower the prices of all my paper piecing patterns, except for Honey Honey and the newest collection of Chugging Along of course!    🙂 For the … Continue reading

The tale of the three pillows

So I decided that I needed some new decorative pillows for the new sofa I had ordered… That was last December! I bought the fabric, admired it, thought about it, but did not sew with it. Maybe I was a bit afraid to work with different fabric than I was used to. I had bought … Continue reading


Hello everyone! Tomorrow I will turn 37… OUCH, it hurts a bit to “write it out loud”! I feel like 28 instead, so if anyone asks tomorrow, that is what I am sticking to!  🙂 To celebrate my (37th) birthday I am putting two of my favorite patterns on sale with a whopping 37% discount! … Continue reading

What to make (out) of it?

In my April to-do-list I hinted at some repair work on two paper piecing blocks! I worked very hard on four paper pieced bows a while back, before offering this pattern on Craftsy. And while I was showing the pictures of the finished blocks to my family members, I discovered there was a mistake in one … Continue reading

WIP Wednesday – almost done!

Here are the latest cat-free pictures of my baby-girl-bow-pillow. 😉 After finishing the FMQ on the front I have added two pieces of sturdy fabric to the back so you can insert a pillow form. I only need to add the binding and than it will be finished! I will use the same binding fabric … Continue reading

All things pink

Ever tried to take a picture of a quilt without the cat jumping in to claim the quilt? Even after being firmly put to the side, she even crept into this picture… Finally, one without the cat! 😉 Linking up withBetter off thread! Esther  

Quilters Luck?!

Have you ever felt like there is something called “Quilters Luck”? I seem to have a run of this good luck! Here are some examples: – My grandmothers sewing machine is the most perfect beginner-quilters machine…waiting for me in my own basement! – Bobbins (most of them) only run out of thread at the end … Continue reading

April Monthly To-Do List Linky Party!

Pigtails and Quilts is having a Linky Party about our April-to-do-lists! I really like this idea, even if it is to keep myself in line and not start anything new before the old WIP’s are finished. ( 😉 I have to admit that this is very unlikely, though! ) So here are my plans for … Continue reading

To pillow or not to pillow?

Good evening to you all! This afternoon I wanted to test one of the “Take a bow” patterns in the new 8 inch size. How much fun it was! I really liked working with the bigger pattern and two beautiful blocks came together in pink and aqua! But now I have a dilemma…. I planned … Continue reading
