I'm Monika and I'm a quilter and pattern designer, Swiss expat in Canada, and mum to two. On any given day you'll find me juggling kids' activities, taking the dog for walks, running errands, and trying to grab a few minutes to myself with a book and a cup of tea before sitting down at the sewing machine or the computer again.
I started quilting when I was at Uni and have recently started writing modern quilting patterns under the name Penny Spool Quilts. For anyone wondering where the name came from, it’s a line from the children’s rhyme “Pop! Goes the Weasel”
a penny for a spool of thread
a penny for a needle
that’s the way the money goes
pop! goes the weasel
You can also find me on Instagram and Facebook, both @pennyspoolquilts. Come on over and have a nose around!
