Rock around the Block

Well, not exactly rocking, but I thought I should share some fun blocks I’ve been making for my bee-mates in the Canadians Quilt Bee. It’s really fun to go diving through my stash for complimentary fabrics based on the directions from the Queen Bee each month. As the Mama Bee, I picked December–which is good […]

A rainbow of butterflies

I finished up another butterfly block on the weekend, so I thought I would get them all out and see where I’m at. These blocks were originally made in the Simply Solids Bee in 2013 using a pattern I designed, and I decided to hand quilt them using a quilt-as-you-go method. The backing fabrics are […]

So Many Works in Progress

A little of what I’m working on this week. A sweet purse using a brand-new pattern by Sherri of Thread Riding Hood. Sherri invited me over on Friday (sew much fun!) to help her test drive her teaching of this pattern at the Warp and Weft Weekend Event, coming up September 27 in Toronto. I […]

Something’s happening

But it isn’t much sewing. Meh. Anyhow, I thought I would quickly share my January bee blocks for the Canadians Quilt {bee}. This is primarily the ladies I met through the Simply Solids bee last year. We have branched into prints for some fun. Jaclyn (JaclynQuilts.com) made a great start to the year with a […]


A little of what I’ve been working on this week. First up, bee blocks for Simply Solids. Circle of Squares for Carla, in Kona Periwinkle and White. Snowflake block for Sheila. I want to show you a million pictures of this block, I really do, because I am so tickled about how well it turned […]
