A Quilt Finish

This quilt top had been finished for some time, 

so it was time to bite and bullet and 

get it quilted and done! 

I started out with some simples straight diagonal 

lines, a quarter of an inch on either side of the 


The centre panel was going to need something, so I 

decided to go with the swirls again!

There are some little red French knots on the wreath

While it is very time-consuming, time is something 

we all seem to have more of lately!

Perhaps it's snow?

Before our shutdown, Darn Cheap Fabrics had all 

patchwork fabric for $5 a metre....

so I picked up the red backing and dark green spot 

for binding!

I still have not named it....

Considering "Dear Deer"???

And no glamour shots- 

a simple blog post for a simple quilt!

Felt bunnies for Easter!

I made this little felt bunny about eight years ago,

so I thought it was time to make another...

one or two.

I was lucky to find my original sketch and used it 

and the photo to make another pattern.

and decided to make a carrot pouch as well as an 

Easter egg!

My grandsons were thrilled when I showed them on 

Facetime at the weekend.

Goodness knows when I will be able to give them to 

them! 😞

Happy sewing!

Shine Your Halo!

It's not often I name a quilt before I've made it, 

but this seems a good name for my version of 

Jen Kingwell's "Halo" pattern.

I had long admired it and had even found

 a version in this book: 

Although my busy blue version will look totally 

different from this one!

I am really enjoying cutting into my stash of blue 


generously supplemented through a swap with Linda 

last year!

Here are a few more of the blocks I have been 


I'm enjoying the challenge of machine sewing curves again.

Here are the four blocks.

And I couldn't resist making a collage to get a bit of 

feel for the final layout....

And I love it!

Happy sewing!
