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… Read More »

Red, White and Blue Baby Quilt.

Here is a crib quilt I made a few years ago.    One of the purposes of this blog is to record the quilts I have made. Sadly I’m not sure where I got the pattern as this is one I’d love to make again. It was backed with polar fleece and is technically not… Read More »

Look at the light purple square: This works much better. Proof that you… Read More »

My first quilt

My introduction to quilting was at a workshop put on through the Toronto Board of Eduction. We had a wonderful instructor and this was the first quilt that I made. I’m still, today proud of the job that I did on this. The quilt hangs on my bedroom wall where I get to see it… Read More »
