Look what my daughter did. She made a cartoon of me. I will use it as my Photo.


This quilt is the one that I am most proud off. I made it from McCalls quilting magazine. I wanted it exactly the same as in the magazine. I even bought Mark Lipinski´s fabric. Then I decided a little embroidery wouldn´t hurt. Although I already hang it on my living room I still want to embellish it a little more. Here are some pics.

Here is a pic of my living room all the paintings were made by my daughter. She´s a real artist. you can look her up in http://mariesini.deviantart.com/.

I was only going to embroider the small mandalas.

But I ended embellishing a lot more, and I am not done yet

What to do with old Jeans

We had a lot of old Jeans that didn`t fit anymore or were ragged so I decided to make a ragged edge quilt with them if you look close you can see pockets and embroidery in some blocks. The quilt is in my sons room as a rug.

My first Quilt

I made my first quilt for my daughter, she was 12 years old then. she was into pink and flowers. So we both designed it. here´s a pic
All the quilting was done by hand as well as the appliques I was so proud. She loved it.

Then I made one for myself. I made 96 diferent blocks and put them all together and I ended up with this:

And finally made one for my son. He said no flowers please. I made him one of Lynette Jensen´s quilts:

Next time, I show you what else I have done and what I am working on.

Here I go

Finally, I will start writting a blog. It is exciting every day when I turn on my computer to read all the blogs I love. that I finally decided to share my thought and quilts.
My love for Quilts started at age 7 when I went to New Hampshire, USA. I was so intrigued with all the colors of fabrics and all the small pieces sewn together. I decided I wanted to learn how to quilt.
Back in Mexico City, I looked and looked for classes and I never found them, until I was married and went to live to Queretaro. Here I met Alejandra and started taking quilting classes with her. visit her Blog at http://panenka.squarespace.com/.
