Hey there, I love fabric, sewing, quilting and most of all Foundation Paper Piecing. Welcome to my blog!


The wildfires are devastating,

with images of burning forests and dying animals, we feel helpless.
We want to do something, but we’re not sure how.

Here’s what we found helps the most at the moment:


Many of the emergency relief services have said the best option right now is cash.
The money can then be directed to those who need it, and it doesn’t require storage like physical items.
Please be aware as usual – unfortunately there are quite lot of scams at the moment for fundraising – so do your research when choosing who to donate to.

That beeing said…
I have designed a koala pattern and 100% of the proceeds throughout January 2020,
of this cute pattern will be donated to @therescuecollective
to help support their amazing rescue efforts in Australia….
Renate Kämmer  @rlebt  has been helping for days now to raise awareness,
and her work is amazing! Thank you sooo much Renate.
If  you were thinking of making a koala quilt block, koala pillowcase, table runner,
back pack or whatever else, now is the perfect  time….
In case you want to help, but would like a different pattern,
there are many other pattern designers out there, that support this cause …
Check out the following accounts on Instagram if you’re interested.
They are donating all or some of their proceeds towards the wildlife rescue.

Here are some of the fantastic quilt blocks that so many people made
with my Koala pattern….

(Feb 2020: we were able to raise over 1,000 Euros for The rescue collective
How amazing is that? Thank you sooo much everyone who participated in this effort )
