New Project Tally

By | March 28, 2017

I have been on quite the quilting binge these last two weeks or so. Amazing what happens when one suddenly has more time on her hands! Just want to track what I’ve started in the last two weeks:  Baby sized Swoon quilt for a friend’s upcoming new arrival! – currently being bound Yellow and Green… Read More »

144 Patch Quilt

By | March 26, 2017

What does one do with an excess of 2″ black and various colour pieces of fabric? If you are me, you end up making a 144 patch 18″ quilt block with no plan in mind for said block. I showed a picture to my friend Bonnie and she suggested I use some green with the… Read More »

Big Quilt Bee

By | February 11, 2017

I heard about Canada’s Big Quilt Bee late last year. The goal is to make 1000 quilts for Ronald McDonald Houses  in 2017. As soon as I read about it I wanted to participate.  I decided I’d make a couple of quilt tops from slab blocks. Each block has to have a pieces of material… Read More »

Twin Quilts

By | February 5, 2017

These are two quilts for girl at work who just had two twin boys. I was wanting the quilts to be similar but not exactly the same. I’m happy with how the one fabric unites the two quilts.

Friendship Star Quilt Top

By | January 28, 2017

This quilt flimsy has finally been finished. It’s taken awhile but it’s been totally worth it. I started off making a totally different quilt pattern but quickly realised that I had sewn my half square triangles together with the wrong fabrics paired up.  I had no more grey fabric so I couldn’t cut any more… Read More »

I’m putting it together in quarters and right now have two of the four quarters finished and the last two are well underway. No idea how I’m going to back this… Read More »

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… Read More »

Star Quilt

By | June 2, 2016

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… Read More »

Incremental Progress

By | May 24, 2016

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… Read More »

Sewing Progress

By | May 21, 2016

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… Read More »
