Selvage Expedition – Spool Blocks

Posted on: March 12th, 2020 by Lorna McMahon

I am not a “scrap quilter”…. But I am a quilter. So naturally, I don’t want to throw any scraps away! I have been saving and using my scraps along the way. But up until now, I have not done anything with my selvage strips. Except save them. I don’t cut a selvage from yardage. […]

Mini Quilts and a Quilted Pillow

Posted on: October 2nd, 2017 by Lorna McMahon

My Pet Hamster mini quilt 24″ x 26″ I have been feeling a little stressed lately. But sewing helps! Even just ironing fabric helps. My thoughts are all over the place. I’m all over the place. And this post is really all over the place. These two mini quilts have been on my mental bucket […]

Love Birds Quilted Pillow Workshop

Posted on: December 21st, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

I’ve been talking an awful lot about “Santa’s Workshop” this month. Okay…. So I may have still been hanging around in my own little sewing room. But the quilted pillow I was making was not destined to be given as a Christmas gift this time. I recently received a phone call inquiring about whether I […]

Bee Pillow

Another quilted cushion…. This Bee pillow is another finish towards my goal of making a Handmade Holiday! I had previously made this block waaaayyyy back in August of 2013 and blogged about it here.

Thanks to these little Winter Deer quilted cushions, I am well on my way to accomplishing my goal of making a Handmade Holiday!

God Bless America. And… Oh, Canada! Eh!

Posted on: October 30th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

The testing of blocks for the Forest Friends quilt has begun!   On Friday, I sewed up the American Eagle block. And then marveled at how small it was! On Saturday, I spent the entire day preparing the pattern for the Canadian Beaver block. And I don’t know how I did it…. But on Sunday I managed […]

Dog Gone Cute Zippered Pillows

Posted on: September 18th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

These little puppy pillows were made using one large block and one small block from my Dog Gone Cute pattern. I just added borders around the blocks and then made my own pillow forms to fit. I stuffed them with some poly fill I found in a box when I moved into the new sewing […]

Happy Turtle. Just Moseying. This little turtle pillow was made using a block from my Elephant Parade pattern. I just upped the size by 1.5 and added borders around the block to fit this 13″ x 20″ pillow form. My niece was coming for a visit from Wisconsin and I wanted to make her something […]
