I have loved Sedef ‘s first book Quilt Petite and enjoyed making a project. When she told me that she was writing her second book, I couldn’t wait to put my hands on! What a joy waiting for something good! My first choice was the Armchair Caddy on the cover but I realized that I don’t have a right sized-couch that fits. darn it! So this table topper was my second choice and I am glad I changed my plan. I was inspired by the Scallop Trivet in the book. Sedef showed very clever instruction and it is quite a good size. I am usingRead More →

I think I told you that my very first quilt lesson was almost 15 years ago at my local quilt shop. I learned how to make a four patch, how to hide a knot and how to make heart applique all by hand sewing. For about two months, I have made small zakka style handmade projects so I didn’t even go close to bigger sized quilts¬† that I see every day on social media now. I have got to know about actual quilt through my quilty friend Kristin down the street not that long ago. I loved how her old quilts layed in a bigRead More →

  Hello friends, I remember that day when I was sitting on my desk, waiting for Stephanie from Modern Sewciety to call me. I made a cup of tea next me and kept checking if there’s any noise from out side. It was quiet morning and I could only hear cars from the distance. The phone rang and I answered. Then all my worries and nervousness melt away. She has such calming voice and loving heart. I had so much fun chatting with Stephanie talking about all the fun things like sewing, designing, photography and even cooking! It’s good to have a girl friend andRead More →
