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 […]

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 […]
