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 […]

Pink Pillow for TGIFF

Welcome friends to celebrate our finishes! And what better way to keep warm in our cold Canadian winter than with a quilt? But never fear, we welcome all finishes here, be them tote bags, pillows, garments, hats, socks…you get the picture I think. Today I have a fun finish to share, from my latest swap […]

A Pouch Finish to Give Away

Four days to Glamp Stitchalot!! But also four days until I give away this charming little train case. I bought the Crimson & Clover pattern from Sew Sweetness (Sara Lawson) a year ago, and I decided to use this swap (glampstitchaswap) to get it out and give it a try. It was difficult to find […]

A Frozen Finish

Here it is, the fastest quilt I have ever made! I love playing with the pretty fabrics, but this happy kid is totally worth the simplicity of a fabric panel. I had stopped into my local fabric shop, The Stitch Witch, the weekend before Christmas for a quick browse. And my daughter went straight to […]

Almost-to-Christmas Finishes

Aahh, only three sewing days left before the in-laws move in for Christmas! But thankfully I’m pretty much on schedule with finishes.  I have 3 batches of cookies baked and in the freezer, so one trip to the grocery store on Monday should be all I need to stock up on fruits and vegetables for […]

In the Nick of Time

A TGIFF for you today, I finally finished my tree skirt that I started 2 years ago! Just 2 pieces of fabric, stitched together with batting, why did it take me so long? I took the opportunity to practice some new (to me) free motion quilting (FMQ) motifs, but of course you can’t see them […]

Travellin’ Pic Stitch and Finish Along Q3 Finish

English Paper Pieced Pillow Almost a year ago, before I started this blog, I was inspired by Laura at Quokka Quilts to try a little English paper piecing. I’ve always loved the Amish tumbling blocks pattern, so I downloaded some diamond templates and got to work. The concept behind the Travellin’ Pic Stitch Blog hop […]
