Welcome! This is a space designed for you, the busy mom, who believes in simplicity, practicality, and the joy of creating something beautiful.


Here, you’ll find easy-to-follow patterns, time-saving techniques, and a supportive community.


​​I'm Elena and I’m passionate about helping others create beautiful and functional works of art from simple fabric and thread. As dual military parents, my husband and I have been stationed in the beautiful Pacific North West, deployed all over the world, and we are now enjoying the East coast.

Since I discovered this amazing craft, my creativity just bloomed. I now create quilt and sewing patterns that are easy and quick, ready in no time, with a wide range of quilting tips and tricks.

My quilt patterns have been featured in several magazines and I have collaborated with great names in the industry such as Just Another Button Company and Alderwood Studio.

I am proud to be able to share my love for the craft with you and provide quality video tutorials on my YouTube channel to help you create beautiful and unique pieces. Let's quilt together!
