I debated taking a break this quarter, but I need the motivation and prizes are a great incentive 😉. Sugar Block Club.  As you can see, I assembled most of the quilt and made 60 flying geese for another round, I need to add cornerstones for the geese, then the final border, layer and quilt. […]

Odd as it seems to be making Christmas themed objects in the summer, these 4 placemats were one of the goals for Q2 in the Finish a Long.  I used some if the walking foot techniques I learned in my class at Quilt Canada, including fancy stitches from my Pfaff  (which has a 9 mm […]

The linky party is open, which of course means it’s time to squeeze in a last-minute finish! Or not. I pulled out my Christmas placemats but it’s not looking promising for a finish. Here is my list of goals for this quarter. Status: Modern Butterfly – done! See this post for more info. En provence […]

It is wonderful to see the different quilts on display and find my favourites.   Here are a few and you can see the rest of my album at this link.  Click on the picture to go to my flickr page, where you will also find the label. I also took a class, selecting “Straight […]

The result is this cute purse in Tulsa Pink Slow and Steady fabrics. The story goes like this: Mom: Let’s do a craft. Daughter: I want to make a purse just like yours. (Diversion attempts follow. Then I found her attempting to search purse patterns on the internet. So I explained that I own a […]

I jumped into this quilt because I love sew-alongs!  I am using each block in this quilt as practice in colour theory. A quick search found a colour wheel to print off–which just happens to be in grey and white, since my printer doesn’t do colour, but it’s really just to help me lay out […]

I have wanted to make my own lunchbag for a while, and I finally purchased some Insulbrite, so when I supposed to be doing something else (hey look, something shiny!) I printed out the pattern by my friend Sherri (3 years since this was published, really?!) and got to work. I used sew-in interfacing to […]

I hand quilted My Very First Quilt, because I decided that since I was learning this craft, I should learn it in a traditional way. I hand quilted my Modern Butterfly quilt as a take-along project. When I finished the top for this Starbright quilt, I decided that the quilt was so vibrant already that […]

The warmer weather meant removing the old duvet (poly filled storebought) from our bed and exchanging it for a lighter combination of blanket and crocheted cover (which I call an afghan).  Which of course reminded me of the quilt I started at Glamp Stitchalot in 2015 intended for our king-size bed.  With a few evenings […]

I treated myself quite well for Mothers Day this year.   After all, I know exactly what I want.   So despite not needing too start another quilt, I purchased the Summer Sampler quilt subscription from Freshly Pieced.  The first block is released today. For fabrics, I decided to use this lovely deep blue for […]
