Where everything is yummy

Patches, patches, patches

Patches, patches, patches

I’m at the stage in the Calico Rose quilt where I’m making components in order to make blocks. There are 49 blocks in this quilt, all of which have multiple pieces. And by that I don’t mean 1 or 2 pieces. The blocks I’m making below are components of the 49 blocks that need to […]

Star Quilt

Star Quilt

When I was in the States a few months back I visited this wonderful quilt store called Pink Castle Fabrics in Ann Arbour Michigan. It was so fun seeing fabrics that I don’t see at my local quilt store.  I fell in love with some Alison Glass Sun Print Mercury Fabric and couldn’t resist buying […]

Incremental Progress

Incremental Progress

Things are progressing, slowly and surely, on my Calico Rose quilt. Thanks  to Queen Victoria  we had a long weekend this past weekend. She may have died in 1901 but we still celebrate her birthday the best way possible with a day off of work.  With the extra day I was both able to relax […]

Sewing Progress

Sewing Progress

As I mentioned on Thursday I’m participating in the Friday Night Sew In with Wendy at Sugar-Lane. I did some sewing last night but, alas, I did not make as much progress as I hoped to make. However, I did manage to turn these: into something a little larger. They turned into a big pile […]

Getting Ready to Get Sewing

Getting Ready to Get Sewing

I’ve been dilly dallying the last few weeks with my sewing. I have had great intentions but just haven’t got to the sewing machine. So I signed up for the Friday Night Sew In to give myself a kick start. I want to make the  Calico Rose Quilt with a black background. The first picture […]

Oh where did this Quilt end up?

Oh where did this Quilt end up?

I was going through some quilting pictures and came across this one. Scarily I don’t remember making it and don’t remember where it got gifted to. A quilt forgotten but for some photographic evidence. How sad. The material in the centre is of dogs, surrounded by scrappy 9 patches and then a narrower plain border. […]

Swoon Quilt

Swoon Quilt

Made as a baby blanket for a coworker who was having their first baby and they didn’t find out which sex the baby was. What better than green and yellow – works for both boys and girls.This Swoon quilt is much more pastel and “soft” in colour than I normally go for. But it does […]

More Square Dancing

More Square Dancing

Cinema at 7

Cinema at 7

I’m calling this my Cinema at 7 quilt as it’s 7 x 7 blocks. It is based on the Film at Five quilt from the Wedding Dress Blue blog. I of course made some changes to the original pattern from the Wedding Dress Blue blog. I changed the size of the small squares from 2.5″ […]

Bugs, Bugs, Bugs — Bug Jar Quil...

Bugs, Bugs, Bugs — Bug Jar Quilt

This quilt was so fun to make! I really enjoyed hunting down the different fabrics and learnt a lot making it. Another view of the same quilt. Posing with it is Mao, the cat I had at the time I made it. He was a very special cat even though he’s sitting by the quilt […]
