Happy St. Patrick’s Day!


I am not Irish, but my favorite color is green, so
Happy St. Patrick’s
day friends!
I just put on a green sweater so I won’t get pinched ! 🙂
I am still learning about the holiday. It’s also called Shamrock’s day.
According to legend, St. Patrick used the shamrock , a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pre-Christian Irish.

I like a post with a picture, so here is a photo of my Pineapple quilt:

I had fun quilting it! I started quilting it on my Janome and finished it on my new Baby Lock 🙂

Here is a close up of the quilting. I did free motion quilting.
I have a lot to learn, but I had fun quilting it! 🙂

Happy St. Patrick’s day!

My Baby

My hubby got me a new baby! It is a new sewing machine Baby Lock Quilter’s Choice Professional! She is so sweet and fast! It’s part of my B-day present 🙂

……..and that’s not all. 🙂 I got a New Joy Gold Standard Quilt Frame! I still can not believe it! We went to the dealer to try the Juki TL 98Q, but I liked the Baby Lock much better! I am getting the frame delivered this week! It’s so exciting!


I got to play with my baby yesterday! I did some free motion quilting and I really love it! Today, I am gonna try the walking foot by adding binding to my quilt!

Happy Sewing!

Australian Present form Julie!

I won a contest that my Australian friend Julie has at:
Julie1960-quiltsfromdownunder.blogspot.com

Every week until Easter she will post a photo of herself, you have to guess what she might be doing, the country she is in and the location. Isn’t fun, it’s like doing a virtual travel! 🙂
If you guess correctly and you are the first to leave a comment she will send you a present!
Isn’t she sweet!

I am so excited, I won! She sent me 2 fat quarters and an Australian Magazine! This is my first Australian magazine! I am showing you few of the pages:
This Fishnet quilt looks like a fun project, I think it will be pretty if I do all different colors for every square!

My hubby love squares, I think he will be big fan of this “Ten Squared” quilt!
It is always fun to look at quilts and get inspired! I love the tree quilt!
I have to thank my hubby, because I asked him for help and he knew it was China. Thank you Julie for the lovely present from far away!

Happy Sewing!

Pay it forward!

I’ve signed up for the wonderful event
Pay it Forward
It is all about Random Acts of Kindness and surprising someone with a special gift.

Have you seen the movie? It is a must see 🙂 It’s about improving the world, a young boy decides that if he can do three good deeds for someone and they in turn can “pay it forward” and so forth, positive changes can occur.

Here’s how Pay It Forward works:

I’ve signed up with Because the Nice Matters and committed to send the next 3 people who sign up here with me on my blog a handmade item
and goodie package within 365 days.

By excepting my invitation, YOU agree to Pay it Forward to the next 3 people who sign up with you (on your blog) and send them something within 365 days.
Want to join the fun and Pay It Forward?

I’d love to have you sign up with me!!!
Please leave a contact email so I can confirm the details with you.

Let’s pay it forward!

Happy Women’s Day!

Happy Women’s Day to all women!

Today, March 8th is International Women’s Day!

It is a very big holiday in Bulgaria. The tradition sees men honouring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc. with flowers and small gifts.
I just found out that The United States even designates the whole month of March as ‘Women’s History Month’.

I hope everyone will have a nice day and celebrate!

This is a photo of a quilt I took at Quilt Fest in NJ. The quilt is made by Kathy Dowie from Richmond, Illinois.
The vase and the orchid were stitched using thread painting technique and appliqued to the background.

I will post more pictures of the Quilt Fest later, stay tuned…
