The blocks are coming

We are on the final round of the quilting bee and it is my round.  I have requested my block to be the garden fence block.  I just love the look of this block and the whole quilt when it comes together.  I am using these blocks to make another quilt for my kids.  Not … Continue reading

Fabric in the mail

Just a quick post to share a little something I got in the mail today. I haven’t read through the instruction yet but since there are 4 different “red” based fabrics I assume I have 4 blocks to make.  These blocks will then be sent back as part of another quilting bee I am participating … Continue reading

Works in Progress??

I have a slew of things that I am working on/need to do.  I just have a hard time finding the time and I am still on mat leave (for only one more month 😦 ) Time will be a little more scare once I return to work. So things to do/in the works… 1. … Continue reading

The Easy Quilt

I did a 2 day class to make the “easy” quilt.  A crib size quilt for my oldest son.  I needed to find some fabrics to go with the blue, orange and grey colour scheme of the room.  My inspiration for everything for the room comes from the feature wall. I gave a sneak peak … Continue reading

I’m up next!

So I finally finished my blocks for the latest round of the quilting bee and mailed them off.  The person wanted a basket weave block and the conditions were that each person had a different colour scheme.  Mine was blue.  I thought I had a bunch of blues to choose from but when it came … Continue reading

So far behind

I have been really slacking off on posting to my blog which is a shame because I really do enjoy doing it.  I got a new computer for Christmas, a MacBook.  It is great, however it is my first Mac and I am so used to PC. So I am very disappointed that I do … Continue reading

Mama has been “sew” busy

Wow 10 days flies by fast.  I have been so busy with different sewing projects and add to that daily life with 2 kids.  All things considering though, I think I got a lot accomplished.   So this post is nothing more than to showcase my latest projects.  It starts off with a couple more crib … Continue reading

Back to the grind

I finally had a chance to get back to my bias tape experiments today.  I went and bought 2 packs.  1 single fold bias tape in white and 1 double fold bias tape in brown.  I figured I could use the 2 colours easily enough.  I am still practicing on my bib from here.  First … Continue reading

Today was all about deals

I was heading out this morning to my local sewing shop as they were having an open house and had everything on sale as well as discounts on classes.  I had already signed up for a bed runner quilt class so I wanted to take advantage of the discounts.  Before I left I printed off … Continue reading
