So much for trying to get indoor close up photos…. Cockatiels quilt finished at 58” x 58″ square. You can find this pattern here in my […]

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 […]

On Wednesday I shared my purple patchwork doll quilt and quickly found I wanted to make another. I finished the five quilts that were the last of my unquilted pile. As you can see… I was finished my work.. The only pile left is a pile of dirty dishes. Sorting through my blue scrap bucket, […]

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
