2012 Finish-A-Long Second Quarter

After a not-so-stellar rate of finishing my UFOs last quarter, I am determined to get more done in the next three months.  In fact, I have promised myself that I will not purchase fabrics for new projects until I finish the old!  (Except for shop items, of course.) It seems to me that UFOs must…

Another Quilt Finished!

At the moment I have a few too many quilts laying half-finished on my sewing room floor.  And a backlog of other projects that were put on hold during the back-to-school, harvest-the-garden rush.  But now that things are back to normal their usual level of  craziness, I have found a few minutes here and there…

Pocket Quilt

Here is one pattern test revealed!  This is the “Pocket Quilt” pattern from Puking Pastilles.    Once again I found her patterns easy to follow and fun to make. I had so much fun picking out these fabrics.  I had several combinations of colours picked out including girlie pinks, soft-coloured flannels and bright rainbow-coloured solids.  I…

Triangle Block Sew-Along

It’s quilting month at Sew, Mama, Sew!   As part of the festivities there is a quilt block sew-along with a new block posted every Monday.  When I first saw this week’s block I did what I always do with projects I want to try – I bookmarked it.  The sad thing is, I have so many…

Secret Sewing Revealed – Sew Fun Quilt and Plushie

I’ve been pattern-testing again.  Remember this fabric?    Here it is turned into a baby quilt: And here is my very first pieced back (I wish I could say I planned it that way, but it has more to do with the mental fog I experienced at the fabric store when I forgot to buy packing fabric….why…
