Bezels

OK…I think I am addicted to Joyce Lundrigan patterns, as here is my third one in a row.  This was another ‘scrap buster’ project, which I love to do.  I did purchase the beautiful cream fabric from my favourite shop (The Quilting Gnome)!  This particular pattern screamed out to me as I loved the chance to do some line work. …

Glory Star

I saw this pattern and fell in love with the centre medallion star!  The quilting turned out spectacular!  Another gorgeous pattern from Joyce Lundrigan of Methodist Hill Quilt Studio.  It also should be noted that I chose semi-Christmas fabric. I just couldn’t resist the light teal with bright Christmas red.  The piecing on this quilt was pretty simple, but I…

Round and Around

I love how this quilt turned out. So beautiful and so different than I normally quilt. It is a wonderful pattern by Joyce Lundrigan of Methodist Hill Quilt Studio and I am proud to say I pieced with all fabric I had on hand…including the batting! I gained lots of practice piecing and placing arc circular patterns.

Mini Rings

Completed my first project made by “Sew King of Wonderful”.  Purchased their QCR Mini Ruler too as a treat for myself.  This small gem turned into a baby girl shower gift for a co-worker and I am very pleased with the results.  Once again it was a perfect pattern to showcase some major custom quilting.  I was a little sad…

An Affair to Remember

Purchased this pattern and fabric from my favourite little shop in Franklin, TN.  I had it stashed away for a few years and pulled it out in January to help fight the winter blues.  The fabric and pattern was beautiful to work with.  Pattern designer is “Franklin Quilt Company” and quilt measures 62″ x 76″.  Spent MANY hours custom quilting…

Let It Snow

Bought this cute kit from my local quilt store.  Needed a fun ‘no stress’ project for my Christmas holidays.  I love the Christmas red fabric paired with the gray fabric.  I have to admit it is still on my kitchen table because it turned out so darn cute!  This table runner is custom quilted and SID (stitched in the ditch). …

Winter Joy

This gorgeous pattern by “Border Creek Station” was a pure gem!  Just the right amount of piecing and applique to make it fun!  Quilted out to 68″ x 86″, perfect size for a twin size bed.  I had a hard time deciding on custom quilting, so decided on a fun Edge to Edge design instead in light silver Glide thread.

Shadow Stars

My Christmas quilt “Shadow Stars” from the Weekend Quilts pattern book by Judy Laquidara. I couldn’t resist making this quilt in Christmas colours. It started as a blue/white Christmas quilt and once I saw the pretty red/green fabrics, I was hooked. Used my handy ‘V’ Block Trimmer, which made piecing a breeze. This quilt lives on my bed from November…

Log Cabin

I’ve included a picture of my very FIRST quilt. A Log Cabin quilt using Eleanor Burns “Quilt in a Day” method. Although you definitely cannot complete a queen size quilt in a day, this method does go together very quickly. Certainly not my best work, but I am proud of my first quilt and I can also see how far…
