It’s been quite some time since we had a Guest Designer Spotlight, and this one is quite overdue! I’m proud to introduce Lilja Bork to you. She has been a Sewhooked Guest Designer since mid-2010. She has an amazing eye for design and had created some stunning pieces!
Lilja Bjork, Slytherin Team Captain!
Name and where you’re from:
My name is Lilja Bjork, on the Internet I’m known as Liljabs. I’m from Reykjavik in Iceland. I also lived in Kuopio in Finland for 6 months in 2003.
I started paper piecing in 2007 I think, after I found Sewhooked through the leaky cauldron crafts pages. I never really thought quilting was something young people did. I thought it must be terribly boring, hihi I was so wrong It’s almost all I do these days.
The ones I’ve done so far are meant to be for a Disney quilt for my nephews bed and a multi-fandom quilt for myself. I also made a Christmas wall-hanging witch is the first project I finish that is all mine. I was so proud of myself when I finished that one 🙂
April 12th 2010, I remember it was the day after my birthday
I just really wanted a Tardis for my multi-fandome quilt and I didn’t find one on the Internet. So I thought why not try to make one.
I’m not sure if it was the Tardis or the Doctor who logo but those where my first two designs. I think I even made them on the same day.
Do you have a favorite among your own designs?
Not any one, but the Disney blocks must be at the top. I spent so much time on each of them to get them perfect 🙂
I mostly use Quilt Assistant. Witch is free. And I also use Photoshop.
Rather than changing how I craft it is more that the community inspires me to try new things. Things that I never would have tried, or even things I have never heard of before.
