Hi, my name is Stacey, what a surprise huh 😉
Lovely to ‘meet’ you. I live in The Netherlands and I love working with my hands in all sorts of disciplines. Cooking, baking, wood working, gardening, embroidery and making things with felt. But my biggest passion is patchworking and quilting. After making a few quilts using other designers’ patterns, I started to design my own quilts and other patchwork projects.
Designing and making my own quilts came naturally to me, as I have a history in craft and designing. First in designing and making furniture and later attending Art School (yes yes, I’m a Bachelor of Design). After working in corporate business as an interior designer for more than a decade, I decided to quit my job and follow my heart and (crafty) creative ambitions by starting this website to share my projects and patterns.
The inspiration for my quilt designs and other sewing projects comes from different directions. A good example is my Parquet Quilt, this design is inspired by herringbone parquet floors. And if I design a quilt for someone I know, the biggest inspirational factor is that person and their home. After sketching my initial idea I sometimes continue directly with working out the exact measurements and sewing technique. But other ideas are shelved for future development.
While working on a project intended for a pattern, I make sure to note all my steps, mostly by taking pictures of the process. After the project is finished I produce the pattern with instructions using pictures, drawings, schedules and text to make the sewing process as understandable as possible. All my patterns include colouring stencils and I often add bonus material in the form of extra quilt sizes or cushions in the same style. Check out all my patterns here.
Hopefully you’ll enjoy them all as much as I do.
