The releasing day of POMPOM GALAXY quilt pattern!

I’m so excited to share this pattern finally!



I chose these pretty 16 colors of Kona cotton from Robert Kaufman for this project. These blocks are made by simple half circles with a thin strip between. And added the stars on each corner as secondary pattern.




This is another version using the thin strips from my scraps. This one is really fun to make! The skinny strips that you don’t know what to do with turned into these pretty blocks! This is very original piece that you can make! This pattern includes a tip for making the scrappy version.




Love how they looked totally different, even though these are made from same pattern! These are MINI version which is 8-1/2″ finished block. You can make wall hanging and baby size using MINI block from my pattern.

By the way, I used Aurifil 40wt thread for straight quilting. It gave nice texture to the quilts and I love using it for machine quilting now!



Also I made the larger size of block which is called JUMBO version. It’s 11-1/2″ finished block.  You can make Baby, Crib and Throw size using JUMBO block from the pattern.




I love this rustic color version a lot! All the fabrics are from my stash and scraps except the background.

PLAY HOUSE pattern

Happy 4th of July!

And today is my 8th pattern PLAY HOUSE releasing day! So exciting!



I used traditional log cabin blocks with thin strips which gives a bit of modern, simple and clean look to it. This original version has scrappy look. (above picture) Actually I used the color squares from my scrap. I believe that you can use some of your scraps to make the blocks.



This pattern has six sizes and includes TIDY version only using three fabrics of your choice. You can make crib, throw small, throw large, twin, queen and king from this pattern.



The sewing process goes quite quickly and fun! It’s simple blocks to make but I marked the skill level as advanced beginner since you have to cut and piece the thin stripes accurately, also the volume of this pattern. Some fabrics might stretch more than others. Personally I don’t use but spray starch might help make the fabrics stiff and less stretchy.




I’ve been making the quilt patterns since June 2018. It’s just over a year. It sounds crazy that I’ve made 8 patterns!

I want to celebrate new pattern release, one year anniversary as a pattern designer and 4th of July!!!

Spring is coming yet?

I’m so anxious to have warm weather and bright sun light after long winter!

And my wish became a spring quilt pattern! I’m please to share my new pattern called LUCKY CLOVER! This is my 7th pattern and I’m so excited!


I made this design using traditional Irish chain blocks and clover blocks. What unique about this design is that I used different size of squares to make Irish chain blocks. And I added big clovers in between the Irish chain blocks.





This pattern is fat quarter friendly and comes with three sizes. Finished quilt size is as below.

Crib 44”x 44”
Throw (Small) 56”x 68”
Throw (Large) 68”x 80”

Unfinished block size: 12 ½”x 12 ½”




I spent more time for machine quilting. I did free motion on my brother sewing machine. I love this texture!





I wanted to take some pretty pictures of this quilt with flowers but nothing yet in Connecticut. So I took it to the local railroad and did some photo shooting. It brought a little spring here!




Also I made crib size using Cotton and steel basic fabrics. These colors are so pretty! I love the fun look of this LUCKY CLOVER !





It might be unusual to have a leaf quilt in spring but this is such a fun and quick spring project!

Also using deep shade of greens and orange color make a perfect shamrock quilt for St. Patrick’s Day! Well… for next year but starting the project right now is not too early! I have to make one for us too…even though we are not Irish! lol

Hope you enjoy as much as I do!!!

Today is the release day of A LITTLE BREAK -TINY MUG- pattern!



I’m pretty excited about this mini version! I’ve been thinking that this mug block is too cute that we can’t just use for making large quilts. The smaller blocks give you more opportunities to make different items.




I’m not the maker who can make all kids of handmade items. But I made these coasters and a potholder from 6″x 6″ blocks. Also mini placemats from 8″x 8″ blocks.



I used Amy Sinibaldi’s pretty little potholder tutorial. It’s a great tutorials that I could make!!! I was excited about the finished!




These coasters are very simple. I just made the blocks, quilted, trim the corners, made bias binding and bind. 6″x 6″ coasters might be big for you but I like this size because I use the big Starbucks mugs all the time.



I love these mini placemats! I used 8″x 8″ blocks and added the 2.5″x 8.5″ rectangle to the right side of the block. For the pink placemat, I randomly pieced the scraps trimmed to 2.5″x 8.5″ rectangle. The finished size is 8″x 10″ and you need one 2.5″x With of Fabric strip for the binding.




It’s such a fun to make and hope you enjoy these tiny mug blocks!!!

Tonight is Super Bowl! All american football fans must be so thrilled! To be honest, I’m not football person but I enjoy Super Bowl every year! Especially half time show!!! We got the food and kids are taking a nap so that they can stay up late a little! We are so ready for tonight!


I’ve been working on a fun and cute pattern and I’m very excited to share it today!





How cute is that?! I got an inspiration from many artists who make posters and paintings of VW bus. They are so cute! So I couldn’t resist! I made this design using my ON THE ROAD pattern. It was so fun to make this mini quilt!



By the way, I realized that I’ve never posted about this pattern… well this is ON THE ROAD pattern which I released December 2018!





This I LOVE version (I call it!) is an additional pattern to ON THE ROAD pattern. So it’s free pattern for people who already purchased. But if not, the pattern is available in my Etsy shop, so please go and grab it!!!


This is my first attempt to make the kind of free pattern. I think this quilt block is so cute and fun that we can’t just make one time. I’m hoping to share more unique patterns with this block in the future!!!


One heart block version


The pattern has two heart block options. You can choose your favorite!

Happy quilting!



I just released my 3rd quilt pattern tonight! Yay! I though I could wait until tomorrow morning but I was too excited and couldn’t wait anymore!

My 3rd pattern is called SPOOKY PUMPKIN PATCH.


It’s very simple and a great pattern for beginner level quilters! Originally I wanted to the pumpkins and the sashing between. And maybe I could do something more with the sashing. But my idea didn’t work well so I had to think again. So I came up with this idea which is adding Xs (I’ve been saying Xs but can I say that?!) to the corners to make this simple design looks more fun!



The quilt size is 48 1/2″x 60 1/2″. It’s a wall hanging but you can use as a small throw. I prepared only one size in my pattern but there is the color variations you can choose. That quilt I made was mix and match colors version. The other one is called the simple color version which is all the pumpkins and background color or fabric is the same.



I wasn’t thinking of making the color variations in the beginning. But I was playing with my PC one night and tried the different colors, then I just loved them!!! I don’t think I have time to make another one before Halloween but definitely make one next year!



This time I did simple straight quilting to it. I think grid quilting looked nice but when I was working on machine quilting, I felt like the quilt top sifted more than I expected. I didn’t want to do more quilting. I was a little afraid that it could shift funny way and would look bad. Machine quilting is the hardest part for me. It doesn’t matter whether free motion or straight line quilting… It’s always hard… I have to keep trying!



The above fabric photo is the first inspiration for Halloween like quilt. I like going to the quilt shop and just looking around. (Of course! End up I’m not just looking!) I get inspiration from all the fabrics! I loved the color combination and couldn’t go home without them!





I hope you enjoy this fun quilt pattern! PDF pattern is available on my Etsy shop now!
