About Ningiu

Ningiu is the Greenlandic word for grandmother, since I'm part Greenlandic and because handicraft reminds me of my grandmother and mother I find the name appropriate.

one a day rainbow

I finished the one-a-day quilt, and it turned out great. I did a really simple grid pattern, and for the binding I used some of my favorite fabric ever. A. Henry raindrop stripe, in both the light and the dark color way. I think it’s the best quilt I’ve made yet.

About a year ago I made my first quilt which was also a nine-patch. A lot has happened since then, I’ve learned to make a decent binding, to make mitered corners (well.. sort of, they are still a bit tricky), the importance of accurate seam allowance, I’ve “met” so many other great bloggers from whom I’ve gotten so much inspiration and encouragement.
I’ve discovered and developed a love (read addiction) for fabric,
but most important I’ve had so much fun!



I’m so thankful for having stumbled upon the worldwide quilting community. And I look forward to explore, improve and learn more about patchwork, quilting and sewing.
Have a great day.
Isa
