Pretty Butterfly Table Runner {a la snow bank}

Posted on: March 6th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

Romeo. Romeo.  Spring. Spring.  Wherefore art thou, Romeo sweet spring? Feeling a great need for spring to start showing some signs of returning, I figured perhaps I can “will it to arrive” by employing some warm and happy thoughts.  So I dug out my Pretty Butterfly quilt pattern and the Architextures fat quarters I received […]

Here we are again!  My favourite day of the week! To update you on the Zebra progress, although I have indeed completed the 16 Zebra blocks need for my ZebraZ quilt, I have not yet decided how I am going to apply their eyes and nostrils.  Either by an embroidery stitch, such as the satin […]

Sweet Watermelon {redo} Finished!

Posted on: October 10th, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

Last week I spent four days with my mother while she is recuperating from knee replacement surgery.  No access to the internet.  And no access to my sewing machine.  But I did bring along my graph paper and pencil.  When I returned home I spent the weekend with my family. And then came Monday!!! The […]

Posted on: October 1st, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

Spring and summer are long gone and fall is in full swing now.  Although the temperatures have been quite cool during the past few weeks… I am still hanging onto the memories of warm weather by stitching up some sweet watermelon. Seems like I can’t shake my fixation on the equilateral triangles.  I am doing […]

Boxes-N-Bows Christmas Table Runners

Posted on: August 1st, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

On Wednesday, I mentioned my recent fabric additions, of the Christmas variety.  They are Holiday Cheer by Jan Shade Beachfor Henry Glass Fabrics. Looking for some guidance as to what to make with them, many of the comments left recommended a table runner.  So I sat down with my graph paper and drew up these […]
