Welcome to October! or should I say…. Octobrrrrrr! My sister and I enjoyed a walk in the neighbourhood with our dog Kaylee this weekend. Who doesn’t take their quilts for a stroll? It’s full on fall here now and there was a thick frost this morning. Time to cozy up with a cheery quilt! This […]

This cockatiel quilt makes me smile! These little faces and their crazy hairdos are so quirky. Choosing fabric combinations was also a blast! I chose to keep the backing bright!

Posted on: September 20th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

These Toucans were a lot of fun to choose fabrics for! I went to my scrap buckets to find suitable strips for the beaks. But after the recent making of the Chickadees quilt, I realized my stash was completely floral free. I have since resolved that issue with an online shopping spree at Mad About […]

Can you feel it in the air? Feels like the dog days of summer are here. Had a wonderful weekend with family. And got right back to work on Monday, finishing up loose ends.
