Snow dreams table topper and progress on Leo’s Mane quilt

Hi everyone, 

I hope you are all enjoying your summer. 
We are in a drought here in Kingston. 
There are many forest fires burning in Northern Ontario. I hope those living close to these are safe. We are having some rain this afternoon. Hopefully it continues for a few days. 

I managed to finish a table topper this morning. 
The pattern is Snow Dreams table topper by Joanne @Canuckquilter 

I won this pattern on Joanne’s blog two years ago. I was so glad to win it. Her instructions were amazing. It’s foundation paper pieced. I haven’t done a lot of this. I was very happy that the instructions were easy to follow. I free motion quilted it myself. I just had fun with it. 

I used a snowflake plaid for the back. 

I hope you like it. 

I also wanted to share my progress on my Leo’s Mane quilt designed by Cathy @Eagleswingsquilts 

I have a long ways to go on this. But I’m still working on it slowly. It’s all English paper pieced. It’s my current hand sewing project. I do need to sit and prep more pieces though. The problem with making this in Rainbow colours is that I need to have access to all my scraps and stash. A little bit more time consuming. Oh well, it’s going to look great once it’s done. It just may take me a few years. Lol!

Dusk to Dawn quilt is finished

Hi everyone, 

I have a finished quilt to share. 
My Dusk to Dawn quilt, designed by Stacey Lee O’Malley @slostudio
This pattern was published in issue 43 of the Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine. I have a digital copy. 

I used glide thread for the first time for the quilting. I love it! My machine loved it. Even though this quilt is heavily quilted, it is still soft. The glide thread is so light and soft. I think it’s my new go to quilting thread. 

I hope you like it.

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
