The Spring is my Love

Ahhh, I really can´t wait for spring to be here so I take all the sunny days that we already have and they turn me into spring mood!! As for the sewing it means some projects finished, some new ones in between (ideas are blooming like flowers in my head) and a lot of preparation for the Kunsthandwerkmarkt in Leoben, 25th March. 

I finally finished my Cathedral Window quilt (tutorial video with Jenny from the Missouri Star Quilt Company). I did not quilt it much because I wanted the fabrics to speak for themselves. It turned out a lovely, nice and warm lap quilt (going into my shop).

The Stepping Stone Block #4 for the Modern HST Sampler Quilt was also finished. As the blocks turned out too small I did them again with a larger basis. The smaller blocks I used for another pillow cover, sewing them together with jeans scraps that were left over from the LOVE-BUNNIES-EASTER EGG pillows. 

As the first round of the HST for the Stepping Stone block turned out too small I sewed them with jeans scraps into a top. I will quilt it today but not sure yet with which thread, white, red or the multi-blue colored one.

The jeans scraps were left over from the jeans pillows I made last week. They are for the Kunsthandwerkmarkt in Leoben. The pillow covers are all hand appliquéd and quilted.

With a such a pillow who does not look forward to Easter?


  1. Beautiful work! I love the quilting on the quilt at the top. The heart pillow is fantastic. The Easter pillow is so cute too. :)
