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.

Truthfully, I was getting kind of […]

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.

Although my works in progress are all about solids lately, for those of you who prefer prints… Good news! There will be some projects in prints coming up soon.
