Free Quilt Pattern

Today after church, I was approached by a member of my congregation who is also a quilter.  She noticed my Sew Fresh Quilts page on facebook, was wondering if I would be interested in doing some volunteer quilting for Victoria’s Quilts.  Of course I told her I would love to, and since she had brought […]

Tuesday became my Monday this week.  The kids were kept out of school Monday due to the weather.   I gave them each a couple of chores to do.  Which they did.  And that must have worked because I didn’t hear the dreaded “I’m bored!” all day!!!!! I worked on the two pillows for the […]

The Fall Leaves quilt top has been layered, basted, quilted and bound…  I used the fall leaves print for the backing and for the binding.  Binding… I tried the machine stitched on the back method by stitching in the ditch on the front.  It is a little quicker than hand stitching, but I am not […]

I went to Stratford on Thursday and retrieved my beloved Janome.  He passed his physical with flying colours!

I made it through Friday’s shopping trip with the girls unscathed, but rather bored.  Five hours in the mall was at least four hours too long for me.  But I did get some more graph paper and made good use of my time.  I sat in the food court and drew up some quilty ideas. […]
