I love to work on my quilts with the traditional quilting methods, one block at the time, most of the time I quilt by hand, and I love to add some hand embroidery to my quilts.

I love to spend sometime working on my quilts, I love also every step of this art.

  • Who is Alejandra Balanzario?

My name is Alejandra Balanzario, I was born in Mexico City, currently I live in Southern Quebec, Canada.

I have been quilting for a few years now, I made my first quilting project around 30 years ago, since that moment I felt in love with Quilts.

I have been working on quilts every week, quilts had turn into my main hobby and lifetime passion, I made of quilts my full time job to support my family as a single mother in Mexico City.

Theaching how to make quilts, I could raise two of my three children and pay off my house.

Quilts had turned into my big company on everyday, I have found a great source of creativity on them.

This is not my first Quilting blog, you might know me from my former blogs, this time I hope to do better, here I will keep to share with you my daily quilting adventures and free patterns.

  • – I love to buy cotton fabrics and keep them until I find the right quilt to use them.
  • – Every time I see a nice fabric in a blouse or a dress I can’t stop thinking it will be great in a star or a nine patch block for my next quilt
  • – I can spend a whole day looking on Pinterest those great new Quilts!
  • – A morning or afternoon spent with quilting friends is always the best time spent!

I thank you for being part of my quilting adventures!
