Quilts

Learning-to-be-a-quilter, mother and full-time academic, using sewing as an evening and weekend antidote to too much juggling. Living in Geneva, Switzerland. Spending a year of research leave in Tuscany, Italy, in our family home.

Spot the fingers... It's a bit under 2.6 meters long, and about 1.8 wide (just a touch too little, in retrospect)

    So many gorgeous quilts, and some amazing back drops too. I also love your use of the football goal – I may have to try that!

    I’m new to your blog and to Switzerland – I’ve moved to Gstaad and am looking for any local quilters!

  4. I know exactly how you feel about the shops!
    I live near vienna and there are hardly any good shops to gather my supplies, or let’s say it that way, there are hardly any affordable shops, my heart bleeds everytime I cut half a meter of fabrique into pieces which costed more then 15€…

    So, you are not alone 🙂
