Posted on: April 17th, 2013 by Lorna McMahon

Finished the baby quilt just now!  Calling it Peppermint Dreams…. I made it using blocks I had leftover from making the Sew Retro, Baby! quilt. I had to make a couple extras to make a decent size for the center of the quilt. And then added some borders.  This was the first time I ever […]

I have not been doing much in the sewing room the last two days.  But I did get those dishes done!  Guess I do have to get some housework done between projects…. Today I got out what may be considered a UFO.  It was only waiting for some eyes….  I made this little quilt before […]

Baby Boy – Puppy Love – Completed quilt

Posted on: February 6th, 2013 by Lorna McMahon

I am sew pleased with the finished Puppy Love quilt! This project was my first for a few things. One is that it is the first quilt I have ever made using this batting – a combination poly/cotton.  It is fluffier than cotton, but nicer to work with than polyester.  And it’s cuddly! Another first […]

My first quilt…

Posted on: February 1st, 2013 by Lorna McMahon

When I was first bitten by the quilting bug, I wanted to design a quilt for my daughter. My daughter, Erin, loves cats. Especially her cat, Fluffy.  And she loves to read. She especially loves to read about cats. Her love is what inspired me to make my first quilt – the Krazy Katz quilt. […]
