Hi y'all! I design works based off of the fandoms I adore. Some of the things you'll see from me are HP, LOTR, Pixar, Disney, Hunger Games, Superheroes, Doctor Who, and many, many more. I'm a bit of a geek (punny, right?) and I can't wait to share more geeky patterns with you guys!

I was introduced to paperpiecing through Jennifer's Project of Doom and was instantly addicted. I've been sewing and embroidering since I was a girl, and am just now beginning to design paperpieced patterns. This happens as life permits...I am a homeschooling mum of two amazing little girls. Oh, and fandoms? HP and ST:TNG. And I'm still an X-Phile. :)
Art has been part of my life since I was a kid. Even though I am forever a student of science and work in software, creativity balances my life out nicely. I am easily bored when I am deprived of challenge. So I travel and hike whenever I can and dabble in different activities to keep things interesting.
My interests include: Arts: photography, playing music, soap-making, sewing, painting and cooking; Science: astronomy and geology; Toys: lego, Computer: system administration and programming.

Quilt It Out
Blog Etsy Facebook
I've always been a crafty person. After learning to make handmade cards to save money one holiday season I was hooked. Soon I was learning new crafts such as crochet, acrylic painting, and photography. In the winter of 2011 I began to be drawn into sewing after seeing clothing reconstruction videos online. After growing up wearing handmade clothes that my mother made out of necessity I knew my mother had the skills to teach me. Digging her old machine out of storage she taught me the basics and set me free, and I haven't looked back since. Quilting came as an afterthought when I saw a quilt kit on clearance in my local craft store. I now do more of it than any other craft. I'm still learning quilting basics, and designing basics, and loving every minute!
I have been sewing since age 10. I started with cross stitch and worked my way up to other things. My introduction to paper piece quilting was the Twilight block of the month on the twilight crafts web site. From there I found sewhooked and now FIS. I started designing my own patterns in 2011 after I had surgery and couldn't sew. I love designing blocks, but I'm very fast at sewing them.
|Regina Grewe lives in Germany and is well known for her nature oriented patterns. She started quilting in 1999 and developed a lively interest in its technical aspects. Soon she became a teacher for piecing and appliqué in Germany and Europe. Along the way she developed her personal style on paper piecing techniques and patterns. She also has an international website where she provides free patterns and tips. |
I'm from Italy and I moved to US for work (I'm a computer science researcher).
I've always had a creative/crafty side that recently exploded in a big passion for paper piecing (sewing and designing new patterns).
I have big crafty projects in mind, and I hope to put them down on paper (and fabric) very soon, so keep an eye on my blog for the updates!

My mother was a wonderful seamstress and she taught me how to sew early on. She taught me the basics of paper-piecing, but I was an impatient little kid and quickly got frustrated and bored... It wasn't until after I had gotten married that I picked up quilting again, but this time I found paper-piecing to be delightful! Stumbling across Fandom in Stitches opened my eyes to the possibilities that paper-piecing afforded and I couldn't resist designing some of my own patterns. My husband and our young son are very patient with me as my fabric stash threatens to escape the sewing room and take over the house!
