Teaching my 6 year old how to quilt
My brother-in-law was leaving for a job posting, so we threw a party and had everyone sign this pillowcase that he could take along!
I like to make a pillowcase for each quilt I make, I don't always get them done, but I try :)
I made two of these throw quilts over Christmas Break in 2013. I had lots of leftover strips from a previous project (I decided not to add a side border so there was LOTS). I alternated the stripes with crumb blocks and backed with a fleece throw. Perfect for the car! This post dealt with the question "What's on your beds today?"
I've been a huge supporter of agricultural fairs, and this year was no exception!
As You Wish: A Beginning. If you love the movie The Princess Bride, you've got to follow along as I stitch this quilt!
Two more blocks: Princess Buttercup and Count Rugen
You killed my Father! Inigo is my favourite character, and Mandy Patinkin made a forever fan in me :)
No fairy tale movie is complete without the lumbering friendly giant. Fezzik is my latest character, and my tribute to the world's most loved giant, Andre Roussimoff.
The final 2 pieced blocks: Vizzini and Miracle Max & Valerie. Now I'm off to stitch the quotes :)
I began this hand stitched project nearly 2 years ago, and I am about halfway finished the main design. I hope to keep the momentum going and finish the top by Christmas 2017!
I'm working on this vintage yellow dresden blade quilt for my cousin. The original scrappy blades are threadbare and falling off, so I plan to remove them and reuse the yellow to give this quilt many more years of service.
Craft show frenzy! It's 2 days from the first show of the season, and I am not ready yet, but feeling good about my projected finishes!
It's time for the Spring craft shows - so I have a tonne of in-progress stuff, and only ONE completed item ready for the show in three days....
While the snow and cold temperatures keep you inside, why not work on projects for this year's fair? The full listing is available to download now!
This month's block used paper piecing technique, one that all three of us were familiar with and happy to assemble!
My favourite customer, Ashley asked me to make a quilt from her daughter's baby clothes. I have previously made her quilts for her sisiter-in-law, her boys and she won a school quilt!
August's quilting technique was English Paper Piecing (EPP), a method I was skeptical to try at first.
As I work through the Starry Night QAL, I am learning many new sewing techniques. This month I was pleased to try fabric weaving - especially as it could be done while camping sans sewing machine or p…
