Busy Bears and Bees

Posted on: April 30th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Happy to report that we took advantage of the beautiful weather and got ourselves outdoors on Friday. Picked up my sister bear and drove into our hometown of Stratford, Ontario. First stop, down by the Avon river. Oh, that’s right! We’re supposed to be taking photos of the quilt. Stratford’s river drive is rife with […]

Finished my Bears, Foxes and Bunnies in Beds! Then we took them to the Shakespearean Gardens of our historic hometown of Stratford, Ontario. My sister and I took another trip down memory lane.

American Bald Eagle & Red Tailed Hawks

Posted on: April 18th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Note the camouflage slippers? My last table runner finish featured Camo boots. Background fabric is by Ruby Star Society, which is lovely. Instead of piecing to make the top and bottom borders, I decided to leave the star and words from the selvages, as you can see above and below the eagle’s tail. Little touches. […]

Duck Duck Goose

Posted on: April 5th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

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

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 […]

Posted on: March 25th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Remember back when I shared my finished Economy Fox Birches quilt? You can find it HERE. The pattern comes with many options and one of them is the Fox peeking out of the birch trees. I enjoyed piecing the tiny version of the Fox face and choosing fabrics for the birch trees. This time I […]
