Nero's Post II (2013-2015)

Hi friends! Today I start my new quilt block series with solids: {Solid Sampler}. This will be blocks made with solids, new and old, traditional and modern, what ever comes to my mind. If I know the name for the block I use that other wise I give it ‘my’ name. I show you how I make the blocks or I link to the tutorials that inspired me.

hrt harlekin block by tejesarita

My first block is HRT (half retangle triangle) Harlekin block. For me this shape looks always harlekin so I call it that.

I cut half retangle triangles so that the short side is 3.5 ” and the long side is 6.5 “. You can use the [30 degrees] line on your ruler. For me works well to cut one triangle like that and then the rest of the triangles I cut using the first one as a template. I don’t like to…

Hexagon Flower Tutorial

Nero's Post II (2013-2015)

Hi Dear Friends! I’m happy to show you today a little happy project!

hexagon flower

I have often very cute, little visitor in the shop. He loves colours and you can guess that there are lots of colours in my shop for him to watch. I wanted to make a little, colourful, soft gift for him … something he could hold in his little hands.

happy fabrics

I was thinking what I could sew by hand in the shop. Thinking of one hexagon pincushion, made with triangles, I started to pick colourful fabrics. But then the ‘light switched on’ – hexagons! I have my hexagon Project-BOX in the shop … why not make something with hexagons!

what you need to make hexagons

This is so perfect small project for summer! you don’t need sewing machine or any cutting tools. All you need is fabric, scissors, thread, needle and paper (templates for hexagons). Filling can be the same as there is…

Milky Hearts by Teje
‘Milky Hearts’ in aqua was an unfinished mini quilt on my design wall from the March. It was enjoy to watch it there but the plan was to make it pillow …

… and pillow it bacame late last night … with a simple envelope backing …

Usually my furry friends, Nero or Hanna, present my quilts in this festival and I thought now it’s Nelli’s turn to do the job …
But she didn’t have any interest so I guess I have to do this on my own.

I found my inspiration from the hearts and my Special quilt book. You can read about the process and my inspiration in THIS POST. There is…

New business bag!

Nero's Post II (2013-2015)

Hi Dear Friends! I was thinking to title this post ‘bag business’ but then realized that in fact it is a business bag…

big tote bag by tejesarita

… because I made it to use at work. I carry always many things with me + materials for projects to make at work, so I need big bag It’s better to have everything in one than to carry many bags


This was the beginning of the Project. As you see I changed again my mind and didn’t use the burlap for outside pocket as I have thought. I prefered not to cover this very Special linen with angels.


This was the next ‘material collection’. Finally all the Materials I used were from friends, so this is also Special ‘friend’ bag! Blue angel linen is a present from a dear friend and I have saved it for a Special Project. The same goes with the dark, thin…

Trikimia's Shop

There is still very much to do until we can say (if ever) that the shop is ready, but we are on a good way and can finally say that we are open. We had already even few lovely clients, so lets hope the summer will be good.

Welcome to my sewing room!

Nero's Post II (2013-2015)

Hi Dear Friends! I’m happy to welcome you to my NEW sewing room! Just wish I could offer you apple pie with coffee!

Teje's sewing room

When you come to my sewing room, this is the First sight you have from the door. Room is not big but everything is now in order and it’s quite practical to work. I did a lot of thinking in the beginning and ended up to put the table in the middle. I have always my sewing machine on the leftside and the cutting place on the right, so like this the electricity cable comes easily from the back wall.

Teje's sewing room

There is very narrow window and the door to the balcony. I thought that how ever I put my table, I can’t see much out, so I prefer to have the wardrope behind me and the open selves front of me. Also I can have drawers on the back wall…
