I started quilting almost 13 years ago and at the time I certainly didn’t think that someday I will turn my passion for quilting into a little business.
Any beginning is hard and mine was as well; but many people have helped me along the way, in a way or another.
8-9 years ago I had a few kaleidoscope kits for sale and Mihaela was my first Romanian customer. She bought the kit and sent me an encouragement letter that I will never forget.
Now she is my friend and just launched her first quilt pattern. I am so happy to share this pattern with you and to encourage her to follow her passion.
I tested her pattern and I am so glad I did. Look at this beautiful pillow! I made the top in 2 hours! There are lots of instructions and diagrams to help you create your own block; then you could make a pillow or sew a few blocks to make a quilt.
I am in love with this 3/8” grid quilting!
Then a few years ago I met Dora on Internet – a Romanian-born graphic
designer and quilter that lives now in California. Last summer she
visited me and we spent some wonderful time together.
I am in love with the carpet bags ans shawls she makes,
and I love her modern quilt patterns.
I just had to make a quilt following her pattern. If you have some stripes in your stash, this is a great pattern to use. Imagine the possibilities!
A fun and quick quilt.
In these days we want to see everything; we scan the web for inspiration and pretty pictures; we spend 5 seconds on a page then we leave to find something else. But sometimes we take the time and send someone a few words of encouragement. It means so much for that person. From time to time I receive such messages and I am so grateful.
Now I am happy that I can encourage these two quilters to follow their passion. I hope you will find some time to visit them. They will appreciate your visit.
