KQG Mystery Quilt Pt 2

I can't believe it's been a month since I've posted!  I feel like I should have a bunch of finished projects to share but...I don't.  I have finished the second part of the mystery quilt though!  Talk about half-squares triangles!  This installment needed 96 HSTs - 1.5" half. square. triangles. (Yes, that's small) If you... Continue Reading →

Visions of Sugar Plums (Week 4)

I mentioned last post that the finishing instructions (final week) were published at We All Sew on November 28.  Last night I finally got around to finishing this awesome table runner! Like the sample in the quilt along, I was going to quilt straight lines to keep the modern look but....I can't sew a straight line.  Instead... Continue Reading →

It's been a while...and I haven't really gotten anything done! Shameful I know but it's Christmas time - there's shopping to be done!  Anyway, here's a quick update on some of my ongoing projects: Sugar Plum Table Runner - The final week was published at We All Sew...I've gotten the blocks sewn together but now I...

This fabric & That pillow

The... Continue Reading →

My Fair Isle

If I could knit, I would always knit the Fair Isle pattern.  However, since I don't know how to knit, I'll just design a Fair Isle quilt instead. Feeling creative, I drew out the design on graph paper (shhh...don't tell Photoshop) and went to work on figuring out if this were to be a full... Continue Reading →

Mystery creates wonder…KQG Pt 1

I'm participating in the Kanata Quilt Guild's mystery quilt! Since I started quilting, I have yet to make a quilt top that is from an 'actual' pattern - they have all been my own designs.  You would think that since I'm a beginner I'd want to follow a pattern but....nope! So this will be a... Continue Reading →
