A modern quilt top “Dusk to Dawn”

Hi everyone, 

I just came back from a ten day motorcycle trip with my husband. We drove to Nova Scotia and back. It was so much fun!!  

When I got back I was itching to sew. 
I managed to finish this quilt top today. 

The pattern is by Stacey Lee O’Malley from slostudio.ca

It was published in Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine, issue 43. 
I have a digital subscription. 
I love this pattern. 
It was quick to make and such a wonderful design. 
I need to buy backing fabric for it and quilt it now. 

And just a few pics from my bike trip

A few zipper pouches

Hi everyone, 

Last week I took a day off work because my stress and anxiety was really bad. 
It happens sometimes. 
There’s no better way for me to deal with this then sewing. I stayed in my pjs all day and made simple zipper pouches from cute fabric. 
These pouches I’m donating them to our quilt show member boutique in June. 


These are the first five pouches I made. 
These are small little pouches. They are perfect for those little trinkets you want to keep together or for a child crayons. I had a bag of remnant leather and vinyl.  I used these to jazz up the pouches a bit.  

I also made two pencil cases with this super cute Canadian moose fabric.  
In all, I have 2 pencil cases and 6 mini zipper pouches. I plan to make a few more pencil cases to donate. 

I hope you join us in June for the Quilts Kingston quilt show June 8-10th, 2018.

A completed UFO!

Hi everyone, 

I have a finished quilt to share. 
My Summer blues quilt is done. 

I made the top in 2011. 
It is not very well pieced, but that’s okay. 
I wanted it done. 
So I did some simple quilting and made a scrappy binding and backing.

I need to wash it now. 
Yes, it’s off my UFO list!!!
So happy!!

I also made this small modern table topper with left over scraps from a current quilt I’m working on.  


That’s another finish, 
Makes me happy!!
