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

  3. You seem to have a natural talent for quilting. This is the first time I have seen your blog. I downloaded your pattern for the Regatta Sew Along. Thank you for sharing it. I see that you live in Germany. My son and daughter-in-law live in Wiesbaden. Do you happen to live near there? I would love to meet you the next time I get to visit there. My blog is sewingupmyfabric.blogspot.com

    1. Hi Pamela, thank you for your kind words! Glad you like the Regatta quilt! You have relations in Wiesbaden? The world is so small. Wiesbaden is about 2.5 hours drive from where I live though, for us Germans that's a long way to travel :0) Let me know next time you're over to visit!
