Welcome to Sipiweske Designs!

I've been visiting quite a number of blogs lately and thought - Why not give this a try! So here I am wondering what to say. First things first - introduce myself and my quilt design business.

I am a quilt designer in Manitoba, Canada. I work full-time at a government job and would love to work full-time at quilt and fabric design - what a goal, eh? I have been designing patterns for almost four years now and have made a couple of trips to Quilt Market and numerous other trade shows - always amazing to see the talent that is out there!

Over the next few weeks I'll post some of my current designs that are out and about in the world right now. I have also been practising with my camera and have some fantastic photos to share with you too. This is the ideal time to be a Manitoban! The crops are up out of the ground and looking great (so far), the weather is fantastic and the colors are breathtaking. I hope that some of the splendor will come across in my photos.

I do have some new projects underway - not ready to share with anyone just yet! I really do need more hours in the day.

Here is a quilt photo to start things off:

"Scrap Happy At Home" is the name of this little number. Different sizes of crazy patch blocks are paper pieced and sewn together. The house is fashioned after my own house (except the chimney of course!) I usually don't like to work with plaids, but I enjoyed this pattern so much I made four pillow tops. It would also make a nice lap size quilt using four or six of the blocks - more of the crazy patchwork would be nice.

I took this picture of a beautiful Hollyhock on Sunday. What a wonderful little star shape in the centre! Nature is amazing, isn't it?

If you stop by, please leave me a note - I'd love to know who is out there!

Until next time . . .
