Monkey Business

Posted on: June 2nd, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

  These little monkeys are all lined up. They may appear to be behaving….. But I think there’s some Monkey Business going on! Sneaky Monkeys….     I am doing a good job of resisting making any fabric purchases this year. And I am digging deep into my stash to find some pieces I have […]

Ducks in a Row

Posted on: May 26th, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

  Have you got all your Ducks in a Row? After sharing my Love Birds quilt last week, I was inspired to design another simple baby quilt with just a single row of piecing. I shared my EQ7 drawings for the Ducks in a Row design, showing the many possible colourways I had come up […]

Love Birds

Posted on: May 19th, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

  Meet the Parrots! These love birds love hanging out together – some kissing – and some back to back.     I know that I have been using prints a lot more lately. I am trying to challenge myself to go out of my solids comfort zone. But for this one…. I could not resist […]

Birds of a Feather

Posted on: May 12th, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

  Birds of a Feather….. Flock together! This little quilted table runner was made for my mother for Mother’s Day. All the fabric used in the front are from the Hopscotch collection by Jamie Fingal for RJR Fabrics, which you can view here. When I last visited my mother, I noticed that she had redecorated […]

Forest Friends 2

Posted on: May 5th, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

  It took a while… But I finally made the Forest Friends 2 turn from a design idea into an actual quilt.   I am so excited to have transformed these new forest animals and birds into fabric form! All the fabric used in the front are from the Hopscotch collection by Jamie Fingal for RJR […]

Let’s Bee Social #174

Posted on: April 26th, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social! So glad to have you join us for the Let’s Bee Social weekly linky party!   I’ve always found the Economy Block, also known as the Diamond in a Square or Square in a Square quilt block, interesting. So when I was approached by Free Spirit Fabrics, asking if […]

Sew Fresh Quilt Bee – April Link Up

Posted on: April 24th, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

I am thrilled to be able to share my second finished BEE block quilt with you!   Although I don’t usually don’t do improv, I enjoyed making the wonky slab blocks quilting along with all those who are participating in this worldwide goal of making 1000 quilts for the Ronald McDonald House Childrens’ Charity.   […]

Bumper2Bumper – a car quilt

Posted on: April 7th, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

  Is it just me? Or have you ever noticed how very few quilt patterns are geared toward boys?     I know my son always loved any toy with wheels – cars, tractors, trucks. My daughter also played with dinky cars, but for her the fun was in lining them up and practicing counting, […]

Teenie Weenie Bikini quilt

Posted on: March 31st, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

  It’s always about this time of year that I wonder…. Will winter ever end?         This is the Teenie Weenie Bikini quilt, which I first blogged about at the beginning of February here. I was already thinking of spring then. And in an effort to banish the snow and cold, I […]

Sew Fresh Quilt Bee – March Link Up

Posted on: March 27th, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

I so happy to finally be sharing a finished BEE block quilt with you! As I’ve said before, this type of piecing is not normal for me. I don’t usually don’t do improv. But I enjoyed making the wonky slab blocks and using up some familiar scraps.         Tackling this smaller 12 block […]
