What I’m Working On

On my way to Phoenix last week we stopped in Great Falls and went to a quilt shop there.  I bought three new kits and some great pieces of flannel.  I spent an hour wandering through the shop and admiring many of the quilts they has on display.   The worst thing ever is buying new fabric […]

McKenna Kary

Meet McKenna Kary!  She is the newborn daughter of my very good friend Jenny.  Jenny and I meet in grade seven and have remained friends over the years despite her living in Edmonton for a number of years and me being in Ontario for 7 years.  We now both live in Medicine Hat and on […]

Home in Arizona

I just spent the last week at my parents second home in Arizona.  It was a perfect week full of relaxation, site-seeing, swimming, and shopping!  Since this is a quilting blog I thought I would share the quilts that are at this house.  They are all ones that my mom has made over the years.  […]

If the Hat Fits 2

Here’s a close up for the quilting that I talked about in the last post. 

In the Hat Fits

This is the first Buggy Barn quilt I’ve ever made.  I took a class last year at Sew Many Treasures and completed it in November 2009 (yes, I missed Halloween by a couple of weeks!).  There was a kit for this quilt but I decided to choose my own fabrics using bright green and purple […]

Sunday Sewing

Today I had a lot of things to finish up.  I am going to Phoenix on Thursday and so typical to my normal routine, I try to squeeze as much stuff in before I go as possible.  You know, so that I can get nice and stressed before I leave.  That way the break seems […]

Cuddle Quilts

This is the Cuddle Quilt that I made one weekend in April (2010).  It’s made completely out of minky which is like super soft furry fabric, hence it’s called the Cuddle Quilt!  It was made using the “quilt as you go” technique.  This means that I sandwiched the whole thing and then sewed each strip […]

Pfaff Quilt Expression 4.0

While I was at the quilting retreat last weekend I decided that I needed a new sewing machine.  Don’t get me wrong, I do like the machine that I have (Pfaff 2058) but I have been doing more and more sewing of late that the new machine offered several features that intrigued me.  First, it […]

Christmas Shoofly completed!

I finished the hand sewing on the Christmas Shoofly at midnight on Sunday after the quilting retreat.  I love the green flannel and I’m very pleased with the way the quilting turned out as well.  Brenda is letting me hang it in the store, Sew Many Treasures until Christmas.  I’m really proud that my sewing […]

Day Four

This weekend has been fantastic!  I actually wish that I had one more night to finish a few more things but at the same time I’m happy to be going home.  I certainly got a lot of projects done, learned a lot of things and had a great time of refreshment.  This morning I took […]
