What are your initials?
My initials are LA.

My favorite quilt block
Well, that’s a hard question but right now I’m loving the simple pinwheel motif in the “LOUISIANA” quilt block. I designed this with three of the fabrics coming out this May in my “Folklore” collection. They are as follows: Moda 1148316, 1148415 and 1148516.

Here is a sneak peek at my Folklore collection.

My favorite memory about school …
LOCKING LIPS

My favorite book, movie or television show …
Anything starring Jude LAW!

I love quilting because …
it’s on my LIST of things to learn because truth be told I’m a bit of a novice. I have found designing quilt patterns has been an excellent way for me to learn the basics, with the help of some talented and experienced friends. Up for grabs today is my “High Street” quilt pattern as well as a layer cake. To enter, comment below about why you love quilting and I will choose a random winner on February 28th.

What if everyday was a holiday?
That would be wonderful as I’d have more time to pursue all of the creative activities I LOVE.

Is there an object, tool or anything that you cannot work without?
My LONG-SUFFERING Cintiq love designing by drawing directly on my computer monitor.

Do you have a quote or motto you live (or work) by?
This one popped up on Facebook today and kind of struck a chord.

Moda Blog Hop: September 2012

Monday, September 10th, 2012
Welcome to the “Oh Sew Sweet” Moda designer blog hop. I am excited to be in the company of so many amazing designers. Below I will tell you a bit about my home town of Vancouver BC Canada, enjoy!

I am a bona fide “Vancouverite” born and raised. As it turns out in 2012 there are not  too many of us. Vancouver is a port city and has long been considered the “Pacific Gateway” between Asia and North America. As you might guess Vancouver has grown into a truly amazing multicultural city.

Vancouver sure has grown since I was a kid. In the late sixties the population was a fairly healthy 800,000 but today we are at over 2.3 million people.

Our town fair the Pacific National Exhibition has been alive and well since 1910. I have fond memories of kiddy rides, baby piglets and corn dogs that go way back for me. You won’t catch me riding the roller coaster though. I rode it once at the age of seven and vowed never to do it again, it terrified me! Not to mention the fact it was built in 1958 and is made of wood (see above)… need I say more.

What Vancouver is often known for is it’s beauty. Now I don’t mean to sound like a travel postcard but on a sunny day it has got to be one of the prettiest places on earth! It has been voted one of the most livable cities on the planet many times. But what they don’t tell you while singing it’s praise is………………….

It rains a great deal, and when I say a great deal I mean a GREAT DEAL!!!
On average 161 days of rain per year. So, don’t forget your umbrella if you plan to visit:)

So what do I do when it’s raining? Visit my favorite restaurant of course. Along with multicultural diversity comes amazing ethnic food. Vancouver has so many fantastic eateries it’s hard to pick just one but my favorite at the moment has to be

Vij’s. Vikram Vij is the head chef and owner of this famous Vancouver haunt. They serve the best Indian cuisine I have ever tasted bar none. Pictured above are the Lamb popsicles, they are simply to die for!!!
Vij’s
1480 w 11th ave
Vancouver, BC

Now it’s time to share my sampler block. This is made from my new collection “Gypsy Girl”and is super cute! Download the instructions here.


The Gypsy Girl line is fun fresh and flirty, perfect for bringing a pop of color into your life. I am working on several projects that I am sure you will love. Please stay tuned as I will share them with you in the next couple of weeks.

It’s giveaway time!! Please leave a comment and tell me what your next 2 sewing projects will be and 3 lucky winners will be randomly selected to receive one of the goodies above. The “Gypsy Girl” charm pack, “Gypsy Girl” layer cake and “Gypsy Girl” jelly roll were generously provided by Moda.
Thanks so much for stopping by and please be sure to visit the amazing designers who I am sharing this hop day with.

Happy sewing and best wishes,
Stephanie

Chipit Color App

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

I found this awesome app called CHIPIT by Sherwin-Williams via Moda Lissa. This amazing app takes any picture you upload or find online and matches it to paint colors. I tested the app out on this quilt made with Gypsy Girl fabric, designed by Carly Westberg.

Quilting comes to Granville Island

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

I am thrilled to report that Vancouver’s finest quilt shop has moved on to Granville Island. What a treat to have Vancouver’s “go to” quilt shop right at my doorstep! Here is a sneak peak at the shop as well as the lovely ladies Maria Roder and Barbara Paxton. The Cloth Shop has been an inspirational and creative sewing boutique in the Vancouver market for over 30 years and has just relocated this spring to the Creekhouse building on Granville Island. For years Maria and Barbara Jean have created art through fabric, selling current fabrics by leading designers, designing their own line of patterns under the name “Bella Moon”, as well as creating stunning quilt kits.  Their expertise in colour and creativity has made them renowned for being progressive and forward thinking and a leader in the quilting industry in Canada. They were featured as a Top Ten quilt shop by Better Homes and Gardens in 1999 and again a few years later by the editors as one of their favourite stores in their anniversary edition.

Visit the new home of The Cloth Shop at Granville Island in Vancouver:
