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!






quilt monday

This quilt.

 I absolutely l-o-v-e how it turned out.
 Absolute perfection in my opinion.


I had an idea for the quilt. I wanted to keep it simple and once I saw a sneak peek of babies room, I was on my way.

The quilting softens up the hard lines.

quilted with Hubby Love

The binding was a little darker than I had hoped but it still worked well.


And I've finally reached the end of the bolt on my favourite flannel.


Perfection. 



a few more

Swoon blocks



And the sweetest little baby quilt


It feels good to be sewing again.


quilt monday

This is a long over due post. And in more ways than one ;)

I had been promising Boy4 a new bed quilt for a while. A long while. I cut it out, got sidetracked. Started some blocks, got sidetracked. I finally carved out some time and got it finished.


I had originally had a whole different colour scheme planned but he asked to go pick the fabrics and this is what he came up with.

quilted with Bright & Breezy

The quilt is a bit of an odd size. it's quite long but he wanted it a specific length so I kept making blocks until it was right :)


I love how the backing is the perfect compliment. 


And he loves even more that it is finally finished.

odds and ends

We had a great Easter long weekend. I was able to spend some time with my sewing machine but not as much as I wanted.

I'm about halfway through assembling my Swoon quilt blocks.


And I learned that it doesn't matter how many times you've made a Swoon block, you need to use your full attention.


I love how the block looks square instead of round. All it took was an HST in the wrong spot.


And I picked up a few new temptations.





can you hear me now?

Hello!!! 
I did not mean to disappear for so long. The weirdest thing happened, my computer did a update. Normally not  a big deal. But this time? The boys Xbox Live updated at the same time. When they changed the password, since my email is tagged to their account, I was completely locked out of my computer.


I did have keep busy though


I had one or two things to keep me occupied 


I even played with some old friends


And sometimes other thought they were helping


It's good to be back



spring break

Is in full swing here and there isn't a lot of sewing going on lol. 

But I have been keeping busy lately quilting and since it has been too long since I've shown some client quilts, here we go!

The straight line quilting was the perfect choice.
