Summer Sampler (TGIFF)

It’s a truth, that I do most of my quilting (as opposed to piecing) in the winter. I started quilting this one last winter, only to put it aside for other projects after we went into Covid lockdown. For a change, I started with the background, and I was very happy with the cone of […]

Scraps container (TGIFF)

I haven’t had much time to sew this month, despite the almost-drought in July the garden fruits and vegetables are now coming along so I have been making various items and canning them (see my pear salsa recipe post). So I was determined to make something, and I was inspired by Sandra over at mmmquilts […]

Starbright Quilt Finish (TGIFF)

Is it your dream to be paid to quilt? Well, it isn’t mine, but it sort of came true this year with Covid and work from home. My Covid journey began with two weeks of on-line training, and then my return to my regular schedule of meetings meant I was sitting behind a computer screen […]

Small but Satisfying (TGIFF)

Welcome to Port Hope Ontario today for Thank Goodness it’s Finished Friday. It’s also Good Friday, a day of reflection. It’s a day to be thankful for family, friends, clean drinking water, and safety. The streets are quiet, with many walkers enjoying the spring sunshine. The upheaval of schedules due to Covid 19 has given […]

Finally a finish (TGIFF)

Hello, and welcome to TGIFF for July 26. It seems like forever since I’ve had a finish–at least of such a long time UFO (unfinished object). I confess, playing with pretty fabric is my favourite activity meaning more quilts seem to get started than finished. This was a bee quilt from 2014 (yikes) . I […]

On Ringo Lake (TGIFF)

Welcome friends old and new to TGIFF this week! This quilt has taken me longer than it should because I have jumped into some other projects in the middle. With the small pieces of the Bonnie Hunter design, I knew an all over stitching pattern would work best, and I am happy with the dahlia […]

A Gift for Lisa (TGIFF)

I tried to resist jumping in with another swap, but I rationalized that it wouldn’t take too much time. On Instagram #saturdaynightcraftalong is a fun group around the globe (starting in Australia) who share their crafty endeavours. This is the second year for a little gift swap at the end of the calendar year. My […]

TGIFF for June 15

Go to Quilting Hugs and Kisses for the TGIFF linkup (oops, I published it a bit early).

Modern Butterfly quilt – TGIFF

Welcome to TGIFF for May 12, 2017! Today I am sharing what is my oldest work-in-progress no longer. Thanks so much to the Carmine group, Simply Solids bee. This was an all-Canadian hive, organized by Erin at Sew at Home Mummy. The mandate was modern design, using all solids fabrics. Blocks made in 2013, handquilted […]

Starlight,  Stardark quilt TGIFF

This quilt is notable for a couple of reasons   First, it’s the first time I did such a variety of quilting on a full size quilt.  Second, it’s the first quilt finish where I don’t have a recipient in mind.  That’s right,  I am now an official quilt stasher. These pictures were taken at […]
