It’s done! I quilted it with two thread colours: off white for the paler sections and dark blue for the darker and it worked out just fine.
I wanted to make a quilt for a friend and her husband selected “Bauhaus” out of the style inspiration options I gave him. I started with a sketch in prequilt.com and then made blocks to follow along with it, roughly. Being ale to compose on the design wall is a game-changer. I cannot overstate how amazing it is to look […]
Oh, yeah! It’s time to clean up those unfinished quilts! This was the lovely Thrive Quilt, which I worked on as part of Suzy Quilts’s QAL last fall. I made it a lap quilt — a little bigger than the listed baby quilt and smaller than the full size throw. I got the top all done except for one strip […]
It’s done! Basted on my design wall, and quilted with a combination of walking foot straight lines along the blue portions and free motion quilted squiggles of various descriptions in the low volume squares.
In an effort to clear up some unfinished quilts, (and to procrastinate about bigger projects I need to finish) I’m going to finish off my January Project Quilt. I had all the blocks finished, so I sewed them together into the quilt top which measures about 72″ x 72″. And, for the first time, I basted a quilt using my […]
I wanted to make something fairly quick and fun today – so I picked Elizabeth Hartman’s free Cat Block Pillow for Janome, which has lots of room for scrappy piecing. For the pillow, you make 10 cat faces and then trim each to 4.5″ wide by 5.5″ high. Then you piece the pillow top together, trim it up and you’ve […]
It’s all finished! First quilt of 2021 and the smallest and simplest quilt I’ve ever made. 49 5″ squares alternating between black and white (mostly Pen and Ink) and bright colours (all from Tula Pink’s All Stars), simply quilted.
Baby quilt for a dear friend whose baby was born on December 31st! A mix of charm squares from Tula Pink’s All Stars and Robert Kaufman’s Pen and Ink. Super simple but so colourful! It isn’t finished but soon, baby, soon.
Happy New Year! I have a few new projects going on, but my most exciting one is to attempt Then Came June’s gorgeous Sienna Burst Quilt. I was drawn to the original image of the quilt because I love the scrappy and faded effect the relatively low volume mixed prints have. So pretty! This is classified as an intermediate pattern, […]
I made this for my dear friend, Esther! It’s Edyta Sitar’s free Stargazer pattern, which I made for myself in blue and white, but it looks super pretty in purples! The back is red and blue because those are Esther’s other favourite colours! It’s my 11th finished quilt of 2020, and my second last one for the Christmas season!
