I am living currently in my pink period. I really hated that color as a child but now it has come back to haunt me…
This is the “Peek” quilt, a gift for my newly born niece Anna…While making it, I really put all my love on this quilt. It is the first time that I ‘ve felt like that and I also made it really faster from my usual creative pace. I am so happy that I will give it next weekend on my trip to Thessaloniki!!! I hope her mother likes it…
Now some info on the making of: I used the amazing-all time favorite prints of Sarah Jane “Children at play” and the pattern is from the “Fresh from the clothesline” book of Darlene Zimmerman. The sashing is Art gallery fabrics, from the Pure Element collection (an very silky-soft solid fabric).
Of course my husband and our golden retriever Robbie, helped me with the photo shoot… we had a lot of fun!
For the backing, I thought about it a lot…and then it came to me to try some machine letter applique (yes this is the first time…!) Well, it came out marvellous, I really enjoyed it and the backing looks like another quilt that can stand on its own.
The binding was one of my favorite parts. I love hand-binding, and since I learned it, machine binding feels really bad…if you know what I mean! While watching like 7 episodes of different tv series, I managed to bind the whole thing. I used the scraps from the quilt and it came out just amazing! Have a nice weekend, and keep on quilting!
I am really excited that for the first time I will be participating in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. It is the best online quilt festival, and it is my only chance to participate in one. Hurry up and visit the FESTIVAL because all the participants have some really amazing projects to show!!!!

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.
