Passacaglia quilt finished

Hi,

I totally forgot to share a picture of the finished Passacaglia quilt on this blog:

 

 

The pictures are a little blurred.
The fabric for the backside is Tula Pink wide width, cotton sateen. It is gorgeous to touch and the colour matches perfectly. So, tada!

Islamic star EPP - pattern to follow

For a while now I have been interested in making a quilt top with an islamic star pattern, but could not figure out how to sew it.

I have been playing around on my PC for a while and found a way to create English Paper Piecing shapes for a simple islamic star pattern. This is the resulting top:








Each hexagon looks like this:




The next step is to create a pdf print out pattern of these two shapes in different sizes.
Anyone interested?

Feeling peaceful

Looking at this pouch always calms me down... sometimes it is the simplicity that makes it special.



Sweet horror

I just love sweet skulls... here are my first two bags using this fabric by Alexander Henry





Both bags are Noodelhead patterns; the top one is the 241 tote and the bottom one the super tote. The 241 tote is slightly altered - I found it too narrow for me (I am 6 foot tall and if I make the original size it looks I stole the bag from a kid).
Both bags are available in my Dawanda shop.

I don't even know if owly is a proper word...
Even I finally got around to making a 241 tote (tutorial by Noodlehead can be bought here)

Hipster

My quilt buddy Susanne (who happens to have a DaWanda Shop with beautiful fabric) inspired me to my latest project, to ake a belt for myself. Now, if you know me, you know that I am not generally a fan of wearing selfmade.. all the more reason to be surprised. 
Back to the source of my inspiration: Susanne made a beautiful guitar strap from Anna Maria Horner Dowry fabric. I fell in love with the fabric and made myself this belt:
