Chain Link Quilt

By | August 25, 2019

I saw the pattern for the main block in this top somewhere on my travels on the internet.

I wasn’t happy with the nine patch quilt as originally made. It was too long and skinny. I’m intending (as of now) for it to be a child’s charity cuddle quit but as initially made it would only be useful if the child was a skinny beanpole.  So, first I made an additional column and… Read More »

I’ve been working  hard on binding my Regent Street Star Quilt and finished it very early Monday morning thanks to a bought of insomnia that I put to good use. I can’t seem to make the insomnia go away so I try to make it productive whenever I can.  I love how this quilt shows… Read More »

Happy Blocks and Maple Leafs

By | May 15, 2019

Three of my recent finishes are my happy blocks quilt and 2 Maple Leafs quilts.  The Toronto Maple Leafs fabric was bought when my nephews were much younger and is no longer suitable for a quilt for either of them, hence these quilts that will be donated to my guild for the charity outreach program.… Read More »
