Meerkats Is Where It’s At

Posted on: July 8th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

As I explained in yesterday’s post, I have not had any official finishes to share, because my unquilted pile is growing with all the new designs I have been testing. Here are the Meerkats! They’re popping up outta their holes and all looking ”thataway”! You know what else is growing? (Besides the never ending mountain […]

Squirrels and Mushrooms

Posted on: July 7th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

If you’ve known me long…… You know I have a longtime fondness for these little rodents. I adore squirrels. I feed them (and the birds) seeds over the winter, attracting them to my porch railing, just outside of my sewing room. This image of squirrels frollicing among the mushrooms, popped into my head one day, […]

Budgie Birds, Cockatiels and Parrots

Posted on: July 7th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Feathered friends have been on my mind this spring and summer…. My unquilted pile is getting deep! I habitually quilt my tops before starting something new, but it has been cuckoo around here with a flock of a lot of new bird patterns. Which I can only take as a sign…. To keep looking up!!! […]

Perky Poodles quilt

Posted on: June 8th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

These Perky Poodles went to the park! Once again, I was fortunate to have my sister along for some quilt photos. First we went to the park by the river, right in Mitchell. You can see this is the birthplace of Howie Morenz, “The Stratford Flash”.  I recently bought this cute print with sleeping dogs. […]

The Pigeon quilt, on tour with my sister and I. The Hamilton Mausoleum in the Avondale Cemetery of Stratford, Ontario, Canada. Thank you to my sweet tweet of a sister for another photo shoot in the wild! This location wasn’t overly wild… It’s our brother’s backyard. Notice the black stripes in the binding to match […]

Busy Bears and Bees

Posted on: April 30th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Happy to report that we took advantage of the beautiful weather and got ourselves outdoors on Friday. Picked up my sister bear and drove into our hometown of Stratford, Ontario. First stop, down by the Avon river. Oh, that’s right! We’re supposed to be taking photos of the quilt. Stratford’s river drive is rife with […]

Bears, Foxes and Bunnies visit the flower Beds

Posted on: April 30th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Finished my Bears, Foxes and Bunnies in Beds! Then we took them to the Shakespearean Gardens of our historic hometown of Stratford, Ontario. My sister and I took another trip down memory lane. You can see in the background that we are still along the Avon river. This garden is at the other end of […]

American Bald Eagle & Red Tailed Hawks

Posted on: April 18th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Note the camouflage slippers? My last table runner finish featured Camo boots. Background fabric is by Ruby Star Society, which is lovely. Instead of piecing to make the top and bottom borders, I decided to leave the star and words from the selvages, as you can see above and below the eagle’s tail. Little touches. […]
