Krefeld πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ Started quilting in 2013. Totally addicted. Hexie obsessed. Fabric addict, too πŸ˜ƒ Journalist & mom of 3 grown up kids. Life is good!

It’s the loveliest time of the day: Spring morning where the air is clear and fresh and the sun shines on the fresh greens in my yard and this beautiful bouquet I picked by the roadside yesterday. I love spring 🌷🌷🌷 #greengateofficial #bonnieandcamille #thimbleblossoms #ilovespring #breakfastonthepatio

Today I got home from a two week trip that took me to Corsica, France, for a little vacation with my ❀️ , then to Stockholm in Sweden where my son lives and then to Amsterdam (and Keukenhof, the beautiful spring garden where this photo was taken) for lovely days with my older daughter who is going to Grad School there. So basically a β€œEurope in 10 days”-trip. I have a weekend just to myself ahead now. What should I sew? πŸ€”πŸ€” #keukenhof #europeintendays #tulips #ilovespring

My son has moved to Sweden and we are visiting this weekend. Loved to tour the ABBA museum in Stockholm. I have been a fan forever.

Second #phoenixquilt finished. This one has a gray background and a soft gray backing. Pattern by @purplepineapplestudio

Isn’t this just about the cutest thing? The cute embroidery was made by @chrissi_muckenstich and I turned it into a pillow. Needs a bit of a bigger filler inside, though. Second one gets a green gingham binding. 😊😊 Gingham is by #loriholt #beeinmybonnet

So pretty but yet so hard to capture in a photo: my #nestfabric quilt with #essexlinen background. #lellaboutique

Madly in love with this πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™ White hearts on navy won the binding. Backing is a plain white snuggly velvety stretch (German word is: Nicky) my favorite go to backing for those quilts I want to have on my couch πŸ›‹οΈ #bonnieandcamille #thimbleblossoms #showmethemoda #silverlingquilt #bonniecottonway

Putting this quilttop together was pure joy from start to finish. Beginning with the fabric pull of pretty much all navy Bonnie&Camille prints in my stash to the very easy cutting and sewing with no difficult points to match. The deciding on gingham cornerstones and seeing my vision turning out just as I had imagined. I really should wait for the pretty blue flowers of the new #smittenfabric for a backing but I don’t think I can wait so long πŸ˜… Thank you #bonnieandcamille for creating such pretty fabric πŸ’• #thimbleblossoms #bonniecottonway #showmethemoda #silverliningquilt #essexyarndyedlinen

Been wanting to make a navy B&C quilt for some time. It’s going to be #silverliningquilt by #thimbleblossoms and I’m planning to make it totally scrappy. Sashing will be #essexlinen in navy. #bonnieandcamille #bonniecottonway
