Stuff from last year

This year has been very difficult for me, and  I couldn’t find the nerve or “appetite” to do anything creative. But the past year things were different…
Piggy Dress
This mod-dress is one of my favorites…
I used a Burda pattern [Cap Sleeve Shift Dress] and all time classic Echino fabric (I call it piggies). Apparently I’ve cut the fabric upsidedown, but it is not so bad after all…

Jackie Coat
The coat was a marathon for me! But I am very very pleased with the outcome.
Again a Burda pattern [Burda 08/2010 Three quarter sleeve Coat], a great fabric I bought from Instabul and for the lining “Home sewing is easy” (Alexander Henry).

Heart to heart shirt
This shirt was the first thing I ever sewn and it was rather easy…with the difficulty of having to translate the instructions from english text, and understand what anything meant, I guess it came out ok.
I used a Burda pattern [JJ] that is free to download, and the fabrics where Kona cotton (Robert Kaufman) and “Heart to Heart” (Alexander Henry).

I’ ve made a million of mistakes sewing all three of them, but I guess it is the only way to learn how to sew.
Since a new year is ahead for me I think everything wil be different….
Be creative now!

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.
