Finished Cushion!

Look! It's done! How many English Paper Pieced cushions have I made? Lots! Why so many? Because it's really, REALLY fun to do!

Join me in some English Paper Piecing love in my 3 hour workshop at the workroom in Toronto! I promise you, I've streamlined the heck out of my technique and you will want to stitch hexagons day and night.

The workshop runs on Saturday, March 2nd from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Call the workroom at 416 534 5305 to register. See you then!

Birthday Robe

It's not always quilts and patchwork around here (though mostly it is)!

I promised my daughter a new robe for her birthday and I actually completed it in an afternoon and within a week or two of the big day!

Note To Self: Robes are a LOT easier to make than semi-medieval Halloween costumes with ultrasuede overgowns and satin underdresses. There's a reason I like making flat objects out of cooperative cotton...

Curved Piecing Project...

Here's a Work In Progress, a stab at doing curved piecing without using pins. Compared to doing porcupine-like pinning prep, these little blocks flew together in record time. I did the quilting by machine to anchor it, then went in with perle cotton for more decorative quilting.
