Mr. Bluebird’s on my Shoulder

Posted on: October 4th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to October! or should I say…. Octobrrrrrr! My sister and I enjoyed a walk in the neighbourhood with our dog Kaylee this weekend. Who doesn’t take their quilts for a stroll? It’s full on fall here now and there was a thick frost this morning. Time to cozy up with a cheery quilt! This […]

Cockatiels

Posted on: September 22nd, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

This cockatiel quilt makes me smile! These little faces and their crazy hairdos are so quirky. Choosing fabric combinations was also a blast! I chose to keep the backing bright! So much for trying to get indoor close up photos…. Cockatiels quilt finished at 58” x 58″ square. You can find this pattern here in my […]

Budgie Birds

Posted on: September 21st, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Thank goodness my sister has been helping me to get these great full view quilt pics! Here are the Budgies! They were fun to pick fabrics for… I made a spare to put into my backing! Quilted using organic wavy lines from edge to edge on my domestic. Notice the boy birds have blue above […]

Toucans

Posted on: September 20th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

These Toucans were a lot of fun to choose fabrics for! I went to my scrap buckets to find suitable strips for the beaks. But after the recent making of the Chickadees quilt, I realized my stash was completely floral free. I have since resolved that issue with an online shopping spree at Mad About […]

Parrots

Posted on: September 18th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to the Shakespeare Gardens. Thanks to my sweet sister, we got loads of pictures on our recent outing to Stratford, Ontario. These Parrots were fun to make! Choosing which fabrics to pair together… I adore their side eyes. Quilted edge to edge in organic wavy lines on my domestic machine. Got some close up […]

My Little Chickadee

Posted on: September 1st, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

This quilt forced me to recognize that there are no floral prints in my stash. I was able to find this large daisy style print and paired it with the red to make bright and cheerful Chickadees. I used a cream print with wispy dandelions for the background and the trees are a light turquoise […]

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!!! […]

Pigeons

Posted on: May 28th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

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 […]

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. […]

Mr. Stork

Posted on: April 6th, 2022 by Lorna McMahon

Special Delivery! Mr. Stork is busy bringing a bundle of JOY! This quick little quilt is perfect for a baby shower. And you can make it gender neutral, if you like! I picked pinks for my Mr. Storks, then found this last piece of floral, just big enough for the back. Quilted in organic wavy […]
