Snowmen in Spring


Today is the first day of spring and we woke up to snow here in Southern Alberta!  So I suppose that it’s only fitting that today would be the day I finally get around to posting my finished “Let it Snow” quilt by Nancy Halverson. I’m only about 3 months late!  I will admit that […]

Dots and Poppies

Dots & Poppies

My best friend Sara, as you already know form my previous crochet posts, crochets.  And of course by that I mean she crochets a lot and is amazing at it!  I have been saving this post for a while now.  This is a beautiful retro hexagon blanket that she made for her cousin, Michelle’s new […]

Vintage Valentine


My mom made this needle turn appliqué quilt. She is amazing and hand quilting, which is something that I have no desire to do! But her specialty is embellishments and you'll notice that she added lots of cute buttons and whatnot to her project. I was so proud of all the work she did on […]

Peacock Afghan


Here we have yet another fantastic afghan the Sara made for her grandma. She also got the pattern from the book Unexpected Afghans. I ordered that book myself but I done expect that I will be as productive on the crochet front as Sara is! Perhaps I'll be able to make one or two of […]

Veledilo Cable Afghan


Sara made this great monochromatic, warm, thick, and cozy afghan for her sister-in-law for Christmas this year. It's a simple and modern afghan that might be my favourite of all her projects so far! I'm not saying I didn't love all of her other colourful beautiful creations but there's just something in the warm simplicity […]



It's finished! I started this popular quilt in the summer of 2011 and I used fat quarters from my stash for each of the blocks. I slowly worked on it for the last two years and this October I finally finished it. I did the quilting with my attempt at a wood grain pattern. It […]

Chicopee Kalidescope


This one is already one of my very favourite quilts! I love the colours and I love the pattern. I started piecing this quilt last winter and started quilting it on the day I was evacuated from my house because of the flood. After a couple weeks when I was able to go back I […]

Crazy Cat Lady quilt


Once again, I have neglected keeping you up to date on my quilting. The truth is I have three quilts ready to show you and I have just not got around to blogging about them. So here is the second cat quilt I made when I did the Pinwheel Party quilt in my last post. […]

Bendable Curves – Pinwheel Party

Pinwheel Party by Kerrie Schwandt

So way back, I can’t even remember when, maybe 5 years ago, I made this quilt top!  I found fabric that I loved and searched for a pattern that would work with these prints.  I found the pattern, Pinwheel Party,  in this book called Bendable Curves. It seemed like a great idea in the beginning […]



Well, I have finally reached the capacity of my sewing room!  I have fabric and kits stashed everywhere and I have gotten to the point where there are things that I love but they have been sitting untouched for years and it’s time to let them go.  In the time since I bought some of […]
