About Me


I’m Monika and I’m the hands and heart behind Penny Spool Quilts.

I design bright and modern quilt patterns for beginning quilters and advanced beginners, and make custom modern quilts for any room or occasion.

I started quilting when I was at Uni and honed my craft making quilts for myself or as gifts for special people. A few years ago I began writing patterns in order to share my love of quilting with others. A few of them have been featured in Make Modern magazine and Love Patchwork & Quilting, and they are available here on the shop page. They’re fun, bright, and often fairly quick quilts, because those are the kinds of quilts I like to make myself. I love a good challenge every once in a while, but nothing beats that sense of accomplishment when you get to use your finished product.

You can visit and follow me on social media, too.  Pop over to Instagram or Facebook and come say hello!

And I know I’m not the only one curious about where people’s business names comes from. So to save you having to ask, mine is from the nursery 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.”
