T is for triangle. As in the Triangle QAL with Paula at The Sassy Quilter (and BTW she has a giveaway running until April 27). I must say, piecing this quilt is quite a challenge. I managed to put together one strip wrong, by rotating the diamonds the wrong way. Fortunately with the solids it […]

Easy Street quilt in progress

The online sewing community is so wonderful to be a part of, to know that yesterday, I was sewing together with makers from around the globe.  As I was sewing madly last night, I was tagging #fridaynightsewalong and #fnsi on instagram, so you can go look there for more inspiration and fun photos. Easy Street […]

Woohoo! I have a day off work, the hubby and daughter are out for the day, and I can sew! I am linking up to the Friday Night Sew-In with Wendy at Sugarlane Designs. If you’re visiting from there, thank you and welcome! On the to-do list for today: Finish quilting Easy Street Piece my […]

sally dress april 2014 finished

I haven’t been doing much garment sewing lately, but it is how I learned to sew. Kids Clothes Week challenges us to sew for an hour every day for our kids. Does this mean I will sew for an hour per day? No, I don’t have that much sewing time. But I will use what […]

April, the month of warm temperatures and temptations away from the ball and chain of the sewing machine.  Just kidding.  Fortunately this spring has been slow to start, but I soon will add gardening to my leisure time which will reduce sewing time. I only finished one of my 5 projects from last quarter, so […]


A quick visit to y’all, today, to let you know that I have been sewing hard all week. So much busyness converging, I love it. Triangle QAL with the Sassy Quilter–triangles all cut and ready–I only cut 158, I want to make a baby quilt, maybe about 40″ x 50″. I cut these using my […]

FMQ detail

I am so glad that it’s the last day of March.  It means that spring, and flowers, and warm temperatures are almost here.  But on the other hand, it means that my Q1 goals for the Finish-A-Long must be almost completed.  Wishful thinking. But seriously, knowing that I set this goal for myself has (mostly) […]

My favourites, especially the teal.

**Giveaway now closed** Well, I’m not going to tell you exactly when my birthday is (but it’s in April), but this story starts a few weeks ago when I was musing that I was mostly buying blender type fabrics, and having a hard time finding multicoloured prints that I really liked. And I had just […]

garment prints march 23

On Friday morning, I posted about a dilemma with my fabric selections for my Easy Street quilt borders. Bolstered by your advice, I made a flying visit to Fabricland (Ontario chain store, I went to the one in Peterborough) on Friday evening, with some good bargains to be had. Although I purchased some potential border […]

fabrics for Triangle Quilt-A-Long

On Wednesday, I happily ironed, starched, and cut the border pieces for my Easy Street quilt. I originally hadn’t planned on a border at all (it is 63″ x 85″ without a border, so this works for the twin size I wanted) but I realized that I might get wonky edges during quilting, since they’re […]
