About me

My Mum used to sew a lot as I was little, she made dresses for herself and made me one from the same fabric... I was so proud! I used to clean my Mum's sewing machine with that tiny brush and loved it! But I never took up sewing myself until 2013 when I decided to make something creative again.

So how did I get to sew quilts?
My husband and I went on our belated honeymoon to America in May 2013!
And this is where I walked into 'Mimi's Quilt Shop' in the middle of the desert, Joshua Tree, and seen and touched a quilt for the first time and was hooked!

I bought lot's of books - Modern Minimal by Alissa Haight Carlton and 'Quilting Modern' by Jacquie Gering and Katie Petersen ... along others. I bought a sewing machine as we came back from the honeymoon (not before we stopped by 'Sew Modern' in LA where I bought tons of fabric!) and I'm sewing ever since.

I have joined Craftsy, following lot's of blogs and taught myself how to quilt.
This is my quilting journey and I'm happy to share this with you!

I was nominated for the Around the world BlogTour - you can read more about me here.


  1. Hi Daniela! I have just stumbled onto your blog and I love your quilts! I see you fell in love quilts at Mimi's Quilt Shop in Joshua Tree, California. I grew up in Yucca Valley, CA! It is a small world we live in! I have a small machine quilting business, called Mimi's Quilting Cottage (my grandchildren call me Mimi). I am glad you got hooked on quilting and look forward to seeing more of your beautiful quilts!

  2. I just have to tell you I love, love, love the porqupine quilt. Found it on the Modern quilt images and had to see more. You have a great personal style. Each of your quilts completes a description of that modern style. Can't wait to see your next quilt. Sincerely, Barbara in Phoenix, Arizona, USA
