Sew Retro, Baby! binding on and done…

Posted on: March 22nd, 2013 by Lorna McMahon

First off… I would like to thank all those who have visited my blog and were kind enough to leave a comment and/or suggestion on my last post.  I was having a lot of trouble deciding on what to use for a binding on this quilt.  I really appreciate your encouragement and every one of […]

Sew Retro, Baby! quilting complete

Posted on: March 20th, 2013 by Lorna McMahon

Follow my blog with Bloglovin It took a few sessions, but as of yesterday, I have finished quilting the Sew Retro, Baby! quilt. Now I am stumped… What to choose for binding?  I thought of using a grey with white polka dots, which ties in with the backing, but it doesn’t stand out much.  I […]

Sew Fresh Quilts – New Year’s Resolution

Posted on: December 24th, 2012 by Lorna McMahon

I have never been one to make (or follow through with) New Year’s Resolutions.  But this year I am determined to make and keep some quilting/blogging resolutions.  Perhaps they will be easier than losing weight or quitting smoking!  Perhaps not… However, I am certain these resolutions will far less painful to accomplish. Here is my […]
