pink& brown applique

Since I'm following the applique workshop of Pat Sloan, I made some funny blocks last weekend to practise the technique. No pattern, just a little fantasy and some nice fabrics!

And I proudly present... my new cushion!

So much fun to make! And more details:

Have a nice day!



first applique lesson learned

I've done my first little applique job ever - by machine (and I really looooove my Janome!)

My first and second try were not very good (or really bad!) but the third one was quite allright:

On the left side: to much blue stiches, on the right side (under): lost my way!

and this is the needle case, final version, inside...

and the frontside. Nice, isn't it!

Have a nice day,



Back to the crockery

In May 2010 I started with paper piecing, in bright pink colours and crockery shapes. This weekend I made the next step: from block to top.

I bought purper fabric for the backside, and the borders. So next step is the sandwichmaking, but first I have to gather a little courage... so difficult to do!

I also bought some fabrics for the Heartsproject, very cheerful:

So I'm ready for the workshop!

Have a nice day,



sharing my heart...

Happy new year! 

And since January is not my favourite month of the year I wanted to do something nice... something with fabric, needles and my new machine. So when I got an email with an invitation to join an online workshop with Pat Sloan  "share your heart" .... and I became a student of the Patchwork Posse! 

This is the plan to make:


I'm very excited, I don't have that much of experience with applique, but I want to learn and use my new machine. I hope to tell you more soon!

Have a nice day,
