from a different corner

This December has been a super weather month, with lots of sunshine and warm temperatures though the daytime. I have enjoyed staying outdoors, reading a book on the terrace or working in the garden.

Looking back on 2012 – this year has been a good year for me. I am happy with what I have achieved :

  • made quilts I designed
  • got more practice and confidence in free motion quilting
  • started giving patchwork and quilting classes
  • worked on patterns (and learned how to write them)
  • got familiar with all the different threads that the market has to offer
  • shared my experience with other bloggers

Looking forward to 2013 – I would like to learn and try :

  • improvisational quilting
  • wonky blocks
  • textured blocks – here a fantastic blog with a free project by Sewn Up by TeresaDownUnder
  • and reorganize my sewing room, get a new cabinet for my fabrics


Wishing all the best for 2013, happy quilting and see you soon,
