Special Delivery! Mr. Stork is busy bringing a bundle of JOY! This quick little quilt is perfect for a baby shower. And you can make it gender neutral, if you like! I picked pinks for my Mr. Storks, then found this last piece of floral, just big enough for the back. Quilted in organic wavy […]

Duck Duck Goose

I have been welcoming spring for weeks now, it seems. And today’s running around to do errands did not disappoint. As I was walked to my truck in the morning, a flock of Canadian Geese flew overhead. And as I was taking these photos, a few ducks took off, high into the sun. No matter […]

Peace! Let us all pray for peace. This new pattern is designed to inspire peace. Peace in our lives. Peace in our minds. Peace in our hearts. But mainly, to inspire PEACE in Ukraine. I made both styles of blocks – white background and white doves – and used the test blocks to make these […]

Shoo Fly don’t bother me

Posted on: March 14th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

This little play on the traditional Shoo Fly quilt block has my HEART. I think it’s partly the fabrics I chose and partly the FLY. Used to have way too many flies on the farm. But these flies are rather adorable. Hey LOOK!!! I recovered my ironing board with a board! I quilted using white […]
