Quilty Things

I’ve had this pattern for a long time and now (dead of winter 2017) seems the perfect time to put it together…. pattern from Craftsy.com ca.. Stained Glass Quilt by Bob. thanks Bob!

It is made of beautiful Batiks with black cotton sashing and backed in flannel. I used mostly black thread for SITD quitting on all the sashing (a real pain, but walking foot helped) and created and used a flower template for some free motion flowers in the big squares. Shadow approves and that’s all that matters.

My very first quilt… Houses. It was a bit ambitious for a first try, but it worked out just fine.  I stippled it on my Bernina with it’s BSR foot… I never get tired of using it.

Look at that beautiful fall day!  My favourite time of the year.

and the back of it… a patched effort with the leftover fabric.  You can see I really didn’t know what I was doing, but I realized perfection doesn’t matter all that much. 🙂


Woodland Creatures Quilt and Wall-hanging

This Woodland Creatures Quilt is from Shiny Happy World’s pattern and it when to live with twin babies for Christmas… they live in the woods with all these real animals, so kudos to their mom for decorating appropriately! 🙂

Cat approval



Minecraft: it had to happen sooner or later. This is a gift for my friend Ben who loves both Minecraft and sewing. It’s also my first rag quilt, a fun, albeit messy, project.

I had to. I couldn’t help it.

Winter has arrived with snow on the ground just in time for New Year’s Eve.

And to celebrate, I’ve made a happy snowman wall hanging for our hall door. He is made of snowy linen, some machined embroidered snowflakes, a hand embroidered mouth and lightly quilted with a pouffy batting. I don’t know about you, but he makes me smile.
