Everything started from here:


I organized my scraps according the color. I try not to throw anything so I have a lot small leftovers and had to do something with them. I chose pink color and started to sew…


But what to do with this small piece of new fabric?


Maybe a blanket for a Rosy? ( Rosy is my daughter’s cuddly,my daughter took Rosy along where ever she went when she was small, so Rosy traveled in many countries and now she is sitting on the bed)

I thought that blanket would be too rosy for Rosy and ….


The “blanket” made a new appearance as a pouch! And now when I made the first Ι remembered the nail polish I had and I made few more these pouches…



During these days when I made these pouches I met one boy who showed me his favorite Lego, Mini Cooper. He told me that he would like to have a nice box to keep it inside. I asked him to come  to my house to make a box. One day he came with his mother and he made this box by himself and he was so happy!



I made also few boxes..they are always needed.



And here are all the pouches and boxes together:


Have a nice and creative week! x Anneli




Few quilts from my quilting life-online trunk show

Today it is the last day to take part to Trunk Full Show and it happened to be very busy weekend( as always!) and almost forgot  the trunk show. Thanks to Teje and Nero’s post I remembered it. Thanks Teje!


online trunk show

First of all I want to say thanks to Whims and Fancies for this great Trunk Full of quilts – online trunk show. I hope you have time to go and see the links-there are so many beautiful quilts!

I am going to show you few quilts which I made before I started to write this blog


This quilt I love very much! The pattern is from Sujata Shah Cultural Fusion Quilts book. I love everything on it- it is red-green ( my favorite colors). I really enjoyed doing it!  I had bought her book as ebook and it was funny because I had made this quilt before the paper book came out!


This quilt is summer quilt with summer stars! I wanted to do something with light colors- I had only small pieces of fabrics (at that time I just had found patchwork hobby) so I tried to join  all those small pieces I had. There are fabrics from my  daughter’s small dresses and few vintage fabrics too.


And the last quilt I want to show is the biggest one I have made (81″x 88″). This was also a first quilt I made quilting with my sewing machine,Janome. The quilting was a really huge project,I said many times for myself that I am not going to quilt so large quilts with my sewing machine anymore,but when I saw this quilt ready I had already forgotten what I said.. This Lattice quilt pattern is from Modern One-block quilts book by Natalia Bonner and Kathleen Whiting.I love to look upon those graphic lines and start too see circles and squares.

Thank you for visiting here in my blog. Have a nice week!


..and there is still 35 days till Christmas..

Playful Pinwheels

Last weeks I have been finishing the works I had left unfinished for some reason. One of those works was my Pinwheels quilt.

I have mentioned many times that one of my favorite quilt designer is Sujata Shah. I like so much her free-form blocks and cutting without ruler. First I had bought her Cultural Fusion Quilts book as e-book, but for me it was quite difficult to read and follow the instructions from tab, I wanted to have a real touch of it and that’s why I couldn’t resist having a real book!

This quilt is from her book ( after so many words I wrote it is not surprise!). The background fabric is with theme Moomin (Finnish one by Finnlayson). I was a little bit afraid to cut it because couldn’t imagine what is coming up and had to deal with the fabrics I had. Here you can see my post of this quilt top.

Now it was time to add the binding. For binding I used the leftover scraps.

When I am looking at this quilt now it takes me back to my childhood! The moomin in the backround fabric are like playing hide-and-go-seek in the pinwheel park!!

So, here we go







Have a nice week and a lovely day! Thank you so much for reading my blog and the comments! x Anneli
