Modern Patchwork Doll Quilt

Posted on: September 8th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Monday was a holiday here. Labour Day. I have four quilts that are almost finished and just need the binding stitched to the fronts. And I have one quilt basted and ready for quilting. And yet here I was…. Caving to the irresistible urge to make a dolly quilt. I wanted to just have fun. […]

Squirrels and Mushrooms

Posted on: September 6th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

These little squirrels make me happy… Bounding around in a field of mushrooms. This design just popped into my head one day and I had to make it. In choosing fabrics for my mushroom tops, I realized once again, how few florals I have in my stash. A crazy catch all makes a great backing. […]

My Little Chickadee

Posted on: September 1st, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

This quilt forced me to recognize that there are no floral prints in my stash. I was able to find this large daisy style print and paired it with the red to make bright and cheerful Chickadees. I used a cream print with wispy dandelions for the background and the trees are a light turquoise […]

Caravan Camping

Posted on: August 29th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

I didn’t get a chance to do any camping this summer. But I did get working on another camping pattern! After releasing my Truck and Camper pattern last summer, there were many requests for tow behind model Trailers. So I designed two trailer styles and a left and right facing car to tow them. The […]

Whole Lotta Quilting Goin’ On

Posted on: August 29th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

In my last post I had just added two dog quilts to the unquilted pile. And after that, the pile got deeper! But this past week, I got a whole lotta quilting done! Then on Sunday my sister and I got together for a visit and she helped me get photos. Again… This was her […]

Great Danes! The dog days of summer are here

Posted on: July 11th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Added these two sets of dog quilts to the unquilted pile. But the patterns are tested and ready for sale! Dandy Danes blocks are 17” wide by 36” tall. Two blocks make a quilt 36″ square. My Hollyhocks are blooming!!! Then there are these alternate blocks with uncropped ears. Handsome Hounds blocks are 15″ square. […]

Meerkats Is Where It’s At

Posted on: July 8th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

As I explained in yesterday’s post, I have not had any official finishes to share, because my unquilted pile is growing with all the new designs I have been testing. Here are the Meerkats! They’re popping up outta their holes and all looking ”thataway”! You know what else is growing? (Besides the never ending mountain […]

Squirrels and Mushrooms

Posted on: July 7th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

If you’ve known me long…… You know I have a longtime fondness for these little rodents. I adore squirrels. I feed them (and the birds) seeds over the winter, attracting them to my porch railing, just outside of my sewing room. This image of squirrels frollicing among the mushrooms, popped into my head one day, […]

Budgie Birds, Cockatiels and Parrots

Posted on: July 7th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Feathered friends have been on my mind this spring and summer…. My unquilted pile is getting deep! I habitually quilt my tops before starting something new, but it has been cuckoo around here with a flock of a lot of new bird patterns. Which I can only take as a sign…. To keep looking up!!! […]

Perky Poodles quilt

Posted on: June 8th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

These Perky Poodles went to the park! Once again, I was fortunate to have my sister along for some quilt photos. First we went to the park by the river, right in Mitchell. You can see this is the birthplace of Howie Morenz, “The Stratford Flash”.  I recently bought this cute print with sleeping dogs. […]
