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 […]

Kitten gives me a Fun Break

Posted on: June 2nd, 2013 by Lorna McMahon

Hello, Kitten… First attempt at a new idea. This is something I started on yesterday afternoon and worked on after lunch again today.  It is all raw edge applique.  I just top stitched next to the edges.  Then free motioned loopy loops on the beige rose background and did some tiger stripey details on the […]
