I’m wordless … almost … Hello dear friends! So yesterday I was crying again but now tears of joy! My quilt ‘Fantasy Forest’ won the first prize in the ‘Forest Quilt Along’ contest! I am so happy and just amazed!
This was the most exiting project during my sewing career! I want to send huge thanks with hugs to Julianna and Joanna who organized this quilt along and shared these fantastic patterns!
Julianna’s blog is ‘Sewing under RAINBOW’
Joanna’s blog is ‘Shape Moth’
ELEANOR GROSCH, an artist and illustratot, was the judge for this contest. She wrote for my quilt: “This one was my favourite overall because it broke out of the expected grid structure. I love the creatice use of space and color and the reference to the web of life. The fabric choises are also really lovely and tonal”. Thank you Eleanor! I am so happy and proud to know you like this quilt!
Visit Eleanors site and if you look her shop, you can see her fantastic work! Her illustrations are just amazing – simple, colourful, fun – adorable! They give inspiration for foundation piecing and patchwork!
Main post for my quilt to see more photos and quilt details is here ‘FANTASY FOREST’.

I want to thank all the sponsors who made this quilt along contest with amazing prizes! I’m so exited to start to choose fabrics from:
You, my dear friends, have helpped me with this quilt – thank you so much! You lead me to make right decicions and to believe that I can do this!
Could you, please help me once more … how can I choose the fabrics?! When you like to buy fabrics, how do you choose them? Do you have some favourite fabric lines, designers, what batting you use etc. I have started to make a wish list in my mind: hera marker, new ruler, FABRICS and perhaps batting. Last night between my dreams I realized that now is the time to get that hera marker to improve my quilting and a small ruler to trim squares would be so helpful instead of using the big one for everything.
Now I have so much energy to start the new project which I have been planning these last days! It is easy peacy quilt! Happy colours of course and with that quilt I want to encourage every one to start or continue quilting!
