You have reached the blog of designer Marlene Biles located in Manitoba Canada. Sipiweske Quilt Designs was founded in 2003 and currently includes 32 paper pieced patterns available under that name. I am currently revamping and hope to add more pieced and applique patterns in the future.

Everyone asks about the name "Sipiweske"! I guess the quickest explanation is that it was the original name of Wawanesa, Manitoba and is locally interpreted as "Light Through The Trees".
