Posted on: July 29th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

Every once in a while I get an email from a fellow quilter that makes my day. Wednesday last week was one of those days. Donna Irmis of South Carolina sent me a lovely note and attached a couple photos of her finished Elephant Parade quilt. She made this quilt for her new great nephew. And […]

Posted on: July 24th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

This little quilt makes me so happy! It was sure pretty quick to put together. Once I figured out how to piece those little bee blocks that is. I used my EQ7 program to work on this design and am so pleased with how much it looks like the EQ7 image. You can read more […]

Those batik strips are still getting sewn up. I had a great time playing around with some strips last Monday. And I guess I couldn’t stop! This time I made a table runner out of some pretty blue and beige Island Batik strips. I am always drawn to those cool blues! The strips were each […]

Using my EQ7 Quilt Program

Posted on: July 12th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

Do you remember back in May when I showed you my first Sunday Stash from Canadian National Fabric here? Well, those cute bears on the Theodore & Izzy line got stuck in my head. So I drew up a bear and some bees on my graph paper. And then, once I had an idea of what […]

Monday was just one of those days. All I wanted to do was sit and sew! Something simple….. Sew a few strips together and see what comes of it. I rediscovered these batik strips from Island Batik in my stash. The strips were each about 3″ x 10″ and I thought the four groups of […]

Little Blooms {in Kona} Redo – a finish

Posted on: July 3rd, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

I shared a few posts previously here, here and here, updating my progress on the making of these blocks of scrappy Kona Cotton goodness. 99 bottles of beer on the wall. 99 bottles of beer…. Truthfully, I was getting kind of […]
