A Quilt for Sofia


The last couple of weeks were crazy, between painting and moving to a new house with 35 degrees, and finishing the quilt, I had no time left!Now everything is done, we are enjoying the last couple of days with good weather around here and counting down the days to Portugal!

The quilt is finished, and I’ve learned so much while I was doing it! It´s not perfect, I still do small mistakes because I’ve never had done one before, but with the time I’m getting there. I’ve learned  a couple of lessons and one for sure is never do a quilt under 35 degrees…it´s crazy!

I really enjoyed doing it, I did it with all the care in the world, my evenings were lovely while I was sewing by hand, and I think after summer, I’ll start one for us, for sure! Yesterday, it was my first evening without sewing and it was a bit strange…I think at a certain point the quilt is part of you, it’ s funny!

Sofia, I hope you enjoy it, this is your quilt!! See you here on Sunday!!

Yesterday, we spent a lovely day in Amsterdam with some family, friends, shopping and a sunny day!Today I had a nice day arround this quilt, it’s becoming beautiful!! And the best thing, tomorrow is a holiday, and apparently the good weather is going to stay!

Os 72 quadrados  e as 20 tiras brancas já estão cortadas!! Começa agora a parte mais gira do puzzle! Este fim-de semana foi de descanso, passeio em família pelas margens do rio Reno com castelos e vilas bonitas! Deu tempo também para coser, cortar e acabar outros projectos!

The 72 squares and the 20 white stripes are cut! Now begins the most cool part of the puzzle! This weekend was lovely and rest days, with family trip around the Rhine river and its beautiful castles and villages! Also, I had time to sew, to cut and to finish other projects!

Have a nice week!

They arrived yesterday, I’m happy with the colours and the way they fit together!  I’m so excited, in the next weeks (maybe months) I’ll show some steps of this big adventure…making a Quilt!!

I’m dreaming and wondering about the final result!



This is the size of my next project…Sofia ask me to do a quilt for her bed! She only asks for two things: white background and big squares!!! So I’ve been looking for inspiration and I found amazing quilts and blogs, like this one

Have a nice week!!
