Posted on: October 2nd, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

My Pet Hamster mini quilt 24″ x 26″ I have been feeling a little stressed lately. But sewing helps! Even just ironing fabric helps. My thoughts are all over the place. I’m all over the place. And this post is really all over the place. These two mini quilts have been on my mental bucket […]

Panda Please – a baby boy quilt

Posted on: September 29th, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

Introducing the Panda Please pattern! I made this one in blue so I think it feels like a baby boy quilt.   I really wanted to use some black and white prints to make this quilt. But did not have enough of any of those in my stash. So instead I improvised! The panda bears […]
