After having jumped right into blogging with the 2016 Q3 FAL, I think I should also introduce myself a bit more.
I started sewing in 2013 - mostly to sew my own pants, skirts and dresses. I very soon became attracted to patchwork featured in a Burda Style magazine: It was a hexie pillow case. So a hexie pillow case was the first thing I tried to patchwork in 2013. Looking back I wasn't very successful at it (even though I was really fond of it back then), so I'll spare you the picture. But I learned that it'll be quite some journey until I can finally piece a hexie pillow case properly.
So after that followed some smaller (patchwork) projects, like table sets, coasters, table runners, laptop cases and some fun/decorative stuff:
Until in November 2015 the idea of a large patchwork quilt got stuck in my mind.... The quilt top is one of my planned finishes for Q3. Let's see how that works out 😉
Whilst piecing this new large project, I started reading a lot more about patchworking and quilting (yes, after I started piecing...) and started stumbling over so many, so wonderful blogs out there. So who'd have thought (not me....) - I am following several blogs and reading so many wonderful and inspirational posts every day. This really gave me a huge motivational kick! And I'm kind of hoping I can bring some of this inspiration to Germany, where the patchworking and quilting community is either not so large, or not so represented online. At least this is my impression at the moment - but then again, maybe I just need to dig a bit further. But I am planning on making this a bilingual blog at some point in time. Maybe not for all blog posts but at least for some...
I think that's pretty much it for starters...A huge THANK YOU to all who have welcomed me already in the quilting and blogging community! You folks are quick!
See you around,
