Little Blooms – Friday Finish

Posted on: November 14th, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

Little Blooms is blowing in the breeze! This quilt is my favorite so far.  I love the pieced blocks.  In my previous post about these Little Blooms, many left comments that they were reminded of butterflies.  My readers never cease to provide me with inspiration.  Your kindness and compliments are so greatly appreciated! Thank you […]

Wild Life – Friday it up Finish

Posted on: November 7th, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to the Wild Life!  Oh, DEER…. I can hardly BEAR it! I used my walking foot to quilt around and inside each of the animals.  And then, with all this negative space, I just knew I would have to do some free motion quilting. The straight line quilting was performed on my larger machine, […]

This top, made from a charm pack of Giggles by Me & My Sister Designs and some yummy Kona cotton solids, was sitting on a shelf and has waited long enough.  Time to get this quilted UP!  The Giggles Up top was finished way back in July!  You can read the original post here. This […]

Sweet Watermelon {redo} Finished!

Posted on: October 10th, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

Last week I spent four days with my mother while she is recuperating from knee replacement surgery.  No access to the internet.  And no access to my sewing machine.  But I did bring along my graph paper and pencil.  When I returned home I spent the weekend with my family. And then came Monday!!! The […]

Pretty in Plaid – St. Louis 16 Patch finish!

Posted on: September 26th, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

Fall winds and cooler temps are here again.  It seems that summer gets shorter and shorter every year.  This week I took advantage of the opportunity to have one more outdoor photo shoot on the old hay wagon. While working on my weekly posts for the Top 10 Tips for New Quilters series, I was […]

Country Lanes – Irish Chain

Posted on: September 12th, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

For the most part, my work tends to be bright.  And loud. But this Country Lanes baby quilt is a delightful whisper from the past. While preparing for my new series, Top 10 Tips for New Quilters, I needed to practice some quick and easy piecing methods to provide pictures for the posts.  And figured […]

GO! Ohio Star quilt finish

Posted on: August 29th, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to my stop on the AccuQuilt GO! BlockOnBoard blog hop! For my project I chose the GO! Ohio Star die and set to work designing a quilt using my EQ7 quilt program.  I decided to put that Ohio Star on point and then added a simple nine patch to be used as an alternate […]

It’s a Festive Friday Christmas post!

Posted on: August 22nd, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

For the whole month of August I have been making Christmas creations using my new Boxes-N-Bows block design.  First there were these two table runners using the new Holiday Cheer collection by Jan Shade Beach for Henry Glass Fabrics.  I really loved the soft and festive colours in this collection. Then I purchased more of […]

Boxes-N-Bows

Posted on: August 8th, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

In spite of a power outage, I managed to get these Christmas table runners quilted and bound in two days.  The quilting is quite dense and was a little time consuming, but sew worth it!  This first runner finished at 14″ x 49″ after quilting. The second runner finished at 14″ x 70″.  Both are […]
