Little Blooms {in Kona} Redo – a finish

Posted on: July 3rd, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

99 is a pretty big number. But it looks like it was well worth all the hard work. I shared a few posts previously here, here and here, updating my progress on the making of these blocks of scrappy Kona Cotton goodness. 99 bottles of beer on the wall. 99 bottles of beer…. Truthfully, I was getting kind of […]

Posted on: June 19th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

Now she’s a finished flimsy…. Last week I showed this quilt top in my Let’s Bee Social post and explained all the problems I was having. So this is the ‘official’ finished top for my Hillside Houses quilt along. I have my batting, backing and binding ready to go. This is a pretty big top […]

Squirrels for my Girl

Posted on: May 15th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

My daughter is very fond of squirrels. And I have to admit, so am I. Their shape. Their fluffy tails. Their posturing. And those cute little beady eyes. When Erin received a wooden hope chest for Christmas from her grandparents, I immediately wanted to quilt a cover to protect the top. But she was not […]

Did you take advantage, er I mean, help Pam of Mad About Patchwork celebrate her 7 years of business this month?  I resisted the first two weeks of sales…. But I caved when Week 3’s special of $6 a yard was announced. 5.75 yards of Moon Shine’s Doe Eyed in Sky 1/2 yard each of […]
