I've been lucky enough to play with some fabulous client quilts lately.

This one by Sharlene, love, love, love the batiks.


She chose the ever popular, Greenery panto which looks fabulous.


This super cute one for Hamels Quilt Shop.

starts, middles, ends

It was a holiday weekend here; so weird that it is already the unofficial kick-off to summer. Certainly hasn't felt nice enough until recently.

I did manage to get a few things worked on.

One of my favorite baby quilt patterns. So fast and so cute. Too bad they had a boy lol.


That inner border is actually a navy blue print; not nearly as dark as in the picture.

I played a bit more with some of my Swoon leftovers.


Popular opinion seems to be to add some sashings; I'll keep you posted.

I also found a bag full of 2.5inch squares of Hello Luscious. 
But this is all you get to see for now ;)




snack saturday

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars


  • 1 cup butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • ¾ cup chunky peanut butter


  1. Line a 8-inch-by-8-inch baking dish with parchment paper, and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar and vanilla extract. Heat over low-heat, until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved.
  3. Add the oats, cinnamon and kosher salt. Cook, stirring constantly, for 4 to 5 minutes.
  4. Pour half of the oat mixture into the prepared baking dish. Spread out the mixture evenly, pressing down.
  5. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and the peanut butter. Heat on high in the microwave, in increments of 40 seconds, stirring in between each increment, until melted and fully combined.
  6. Pour ⅘ of the chocolate mixture into the pan over the pressed oats, reserving about ¼ cup for drizzling. Top with the remaining oats and drizzle with the remaining ¼ cup chocolate mixture.
  7. Refrigerate for 4 hours, or until set.

quilt monday

More fun with words.
Something fun to fill an empty space on the wall :)


I had enough leftovers from a quilt a few years ago; such a great fabric line.


Quilted it with my favourite panto for table runners, Paisley Max.


I love these colours; I should have hoarded more of this fabric!


Happy Monday!
