Cottage Sampler Quilt – Made Easy

Do you like quilts with houses like me?

Those with such ingridients as trees, flower pots, flowers, birds … that are telling whole stories … and looking beautiful?

To make such quilt with the sewing machine or even by hand is really hard work and time consuming.

I know this since I am now for weeks are sewing at my Tiny Town. How often I was near to give up. But, I am proceeding. Although, I don’t know if I make it til Christmas.

That’s why I have today a new collection for me and for you. This should make it easy for us and all appliques can be made by your embroidery machine.


Each single motif will be embroidered onto one piece of fabric. Then you simply sew together all pieces.

The result is your own Houses quilt (surely long time before I finish my Tiny Town).

Your quilt might look this:


Or this:

Quiltfertig1Or maybe this:


When you are not so patient, why not making a wall cover like I did?



Of course you can enhance each applique with surrounding stitches. This can be done easily on your sofa while watching TV or on your garden bench.



Or chose your 2 favourite motifs and sew a table set from some fabric.


As the appliques are done so easy there is time enough to sew all together.


Sure you noticed that I like hand quilting. It is really fast.

It looks best when you do it only after putting all together (upper side, wadding, back side).

It is looking so nostalgic.


And when there is really no time, or you are in a hurry, simply make a mugrug.


This flower is part of the „Cottage Sampler Quilt Collection“ and is contained in 4 sizes.


A liitle more time is needed for this pillow cover. But it isn’t witchcraft.




You will need 2 of the 3 houses you find in the collection and one of the two trees.


The little houses will match the 10x10cm hoop. As the 4 flowers and the little bird and the heart.

For all other motifs you need the 13x18cm hoop.


BTW, I gor inspired to this new collection by Ursel from Planegg near Munich.

She’s an old buyer and friend. We are mailing and chatting often.

So Ursel had the idea for a bigger project, so she got the files first.

And now look what she created in only a few weeks. She made a gorgeous and beautifil quilt.

Isn’t it a dream?

Urselquilt1You can see all motifs of the collection here.

Ursel5Really all.


And Ursel even had the time for pillow.


Dear Ursel, as I already said on the phone:

This is amazing!

Many thanks for your work.


And you, when you now also want to sew such quilt, or want to do some smaller project: The Cottage Sampler Quilt collection is available in the Stickbär-Shop today.

I wish you all a nice weekend!

Liebe und herzliche Grüße
