Best 5 of 2015 and Plans for 2016

Posted on: December 26th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

2015 has come and gone. A year of finishes and a year of firsts. Looking back through my gallery of finishes for the year as I prepared this post, has also prompted me to reflect on all the changes that have been a part of things here at Sew Fresh Quilts during the last 12 […]

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 26th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

After all these weeks of piecing the blocks… And fixing a few last minute mistakes… Hillside Houses is finished! I lucked out when looking for what to use for the backing.

Little Blooms {in Kona} Redo – in progress

Posted on: June 2nd, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

Every once in a while there is a need to sort through the piles of papers I accumulate. Sure beats cleaning the windows. Anyway…. Doodles. Drawings. Plans. Ideas. A big pile of papers. Many big piles…. I ran into this picture, which was printed out back in November. Out of all the pages I sorted […]

Posted on: May 29th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

Now that the winter is over and the weather is nice, Teddy decided to come along for the photo shoot this week. Teddy really likes the squirrels and wanted to play in the park, but we settled on going out to the old hay wagon instead. The wagon was recently moved to the pasture field. […]

Squirrels in the Park

Posted on: May 22nd, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

It’s Friday again. And the squirrels are back! This is my second go of making a set of coordinated squirrel blocks. The first set of squirrel blocks I made were reddish brown. They were used to make a runner for my daughter’s hope chest. You can see that finished runner here. Oh, those pesky rodents… This […]
