Bird Watching

I've officially started my quilt journey with Jaybird Quilts.  And boy, it looks like I'm gonna journey pretty far. I've mentioned before that I received the Gravity kit at Christmas 2017 (very excited) but, in all honesty, it's a pretty intimidating quilt.  I know a few fabulous quilters who have made Gravity and they all...

The Quilt on the Edge of Forever

Because I'm a nerd, I decided I wanted a Star Trek quilt.   I had seen a quilt on Esty made up of HST (think Postcard from Sweden but with red, blue, gold, and black).  I liked the look of the random placement of the HST but I wanted something more....nerdy.  So I designed this quilt. ...

Don’t Get It Twisted

Protip: When it says read the full pattern before starting, read the full pattern before starting. Twisted Ribbons is a pattern by Katie Rock that was in an issue of Quilty.  It's just flying geese, half square triangles (yay), and rectangle blocks.  I was going to make it scrappy...well, scrappy to the best of my...

Don’t Bargello Me

The Arnprior Guild had three challenges last year: Crayon challenge, 10 inch block challenge, and the President's Challenge.  I didn't participate in the President's challenge but I did participate in the other two. With the Crayon challenge we had to pick a crayon from a bag and make anything using only that colour/colour family (white... Continue Reading →

Nobody Puts Baby In The Corner

So apparently I'm not a very good blogger...it's been over two months since my last post! Terrible.  My excuse is that I'm working full time now, which you know is a good thing but that means less time for 'important' things like quilting...and blogging. That doesn't mean I haven't done ANY quilting.  Back in April... Continue Reading →

Only 361 days until Christmas!

I hope you had a very merry Christmas and happy holidays!  This year was one of those Christmases where I wasn't really sure what I wanted so my wishlist was very short.  But because my family is awesome, I was happily surprised by a few gifts under the tree especially the fabric kit for Postcards from...

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 →

This fabric & That pillow

Although Momma Bear and I sometimes have different tastes in fabric choices, I'm lucky enough to have her stash and pattern library at my disposal.  Taking full advantage of that, I decided to finally make the Comfort & Joy pillow from This & That.  A pattern that we she had bought a few years ago. 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 →
