Tow Mater

I have had a lot of requests for cars patterns after I did Lightning McQueen a while ago.
So after at least a year of working on him (on and off) I finally finished my 2nd Cars pattern

I give you Mater

he is 10″ and I wouldn’t recommend him for a beginner.

Have fun making him and I’ll see you next Monday with a new Yuletide pattern :)


I’ve been really busy working on a new project, it’s really exiting but that is all I can say about it. It’s taking up most of my time right now. But still I had time to put up today’s Yuletide lad. If a little later in the day than usual.
Here he is Ketkrokur he is 7″

Ketkrókur - Meat Hook

Now there is only one lad to go and then I have 3 extra blocks after that. So 2 more weeks of Yuletide and I’ll be done :)

Happy sewing


I’m running a little late today but I finally finished todays lad.
But Gáttaþefur is here now and he is 7″

Gáttaþefur - Door Sniffer

To Infinity and Beyond!

Still working my way through fandom in stitches requests page so here is my newest pattern Buzz Lightyear this pattern is 10″


I’d also like to thank Meg (SheCrazy13) for testing the pattern for me. Without her it might have been weeks before I had the time to test it :)

Today’s lad is Gluggagægir (window peeper) and if he shows up at your house I recommend calling the cops :P

The Face of Quilting

We Are The Face of Quilting

How often have you heard (or thought) that quilting is just what old lady’s do? I used to think that to, until I found hp-paperpiecing in 2008 and decided to give it a go. Now 3 yrs. later I design my own quilt blocks and have my own website. When people ask me what I do I answer ‘I’m a textile artist, I design and make quilts’ Most people just stare at me and say but you’re so young!

Lilja Björk

So here is my (aa) statement :P
Hi I’m Lilja Björk Sigurdórsdóttir. I’m 27yrs. old. I was born in and live in Reykjavík, Iceland, I have also lived in Kuopio, Finland (for a short time)
I have a paper route but otherwise stay at home and take care of my Nephew Tristan (4yrs.) I have been sewing since I was 6yrs and quilting since 24yrs. beside quilting I make a lot of my own clothes especially corsets.
Pride corset front
This is one of my favorite (I made it for the 2010 gay pride parade) It is in the gay pride flag colors :)

Come on and help us show the world that cool people quilt not only old lady’s and not only females but all kinds of people from all over the world.
I am one of the faces of quilting :)
are you?
