Posted on: November 15th, 2013 by Lorna McMahon

Well, as it turns out, I had twins! I recently posted about some leftover Oink A Doodle Moo (by Jenn Ski for Moda) that I was playing around with and created a baby quilt top.  I still had some large scraps on the design wall. So more playtime ensued!  For this second baby boy quilt, […]

Oink A Doodle Moo – Deja Vu

It’s a case of Deja Vu here! Back in May, I purchased some Oink A Doodle Moo fabric, by Jenn Ski for Moda.  I made this baby boy quilt called Oink A Doodle Moo in Blue and it sat in my Etsy shop until August when it was sold. This week the remainders of that […]

Winter Wolves

Yesterday….                                      I did this. And today…..                              Finished!                        And very happy… This quilt finished at 60″ x 65″.  A nice snuggle size quilt. Although I did consider using white for the background, I went with this off-white, muslin-like solid, that reminds me of a sandy beach.   The binding, a beautiful print called Birch Tree, from […]

A Finish and a First

Posted on: September 26th, 2013 by Lorna McMahon

I finished the Gone Fishing quilt yesterday. This is the first quilt I have ever made using a matched binding. Luckily, I had just enough of the sky fabric to do so! I had thought of making a scrappy, colourful binding. But there was already enough rainbow going on with these fish. I quilted around […]

Finished… Broken Herringbone, Baby!

Posted on: September 23rd, 2013 by Lorna McMahon

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I did! It was a full weekend, but I still found some time to finish up the Broken Herringbone, Baby! quilt. I settled on quilt-in-the-ditch.  No pressure. It does not distract from the herringbone design. And I love the simplistic look on the back of the quilt! I […]
