November/December 2022 issue of Quiltmaker Magazine

I am so grateful for the opportunity to publish my patter, Romanian Snow, in the November/December 2022 edition of Quiltmaker Magazine.

I designed this quilt based on Romanian folk designs found on clothing and home decor in traditional Romanian homes.


This quilt reminds me of home, and honors the rich Romanian culture that I am very proud of.

Modern quilt patterns for people in a hurry
Handcrafted fun bags & accessories
Knit & crochet cool stuff

You want to have more time to spend with your family. You also want to quilt, and sew, but you have all those grown-up responsibilities. To do all of that, you would need more than 24 hours in a day. You know that's impossible, because you live a busy life, which makes you feel helpless and sometimes guilty for wanting some sewing time. I believe you deserve some guilt free you-time.
I feel you! This is why I create modern, quick, and easy quilt patterns, fun bags and accessories (for those moments on the run), and cool knit and crochet items. So, read my blog, learn tips and tricks for quilting and sewing in a hurry. So you can stop procrastinating your hobby, and start having fun!



I'm Elena

I was born and raised in Romania, immigrated to the United States 15 years ago, and this is where I found my love of sewing, quilting, bag making, crochet, and cross-stitch. 
My husband, Jon, and I are both in the military, and we have a sweet little boy named Andrew. We have been stationed in the beautiful PNW, deployed all over the world, and now we are stationed in Florida. 
Since I discovered this amazing craft, my creativity just bloomed. I now create quilt and crochet patterns, make handcrafted eco-friendly bags, and knit and crochet cool stuff. 

My quilts have been featured in Quiltmaker Magazine, Make Modern Magazine, and I have collaborated with Just Another Button Company and Alderwood Studio.
Stop by and see what I have to offer, I am excited to be your friend!
