Home Sweet Home


Another project closer to making our home even more comfy!

Last Spring I started a King + sized quilt for our bedroom. Gudrun Erla created a pattern called Hope and used all proceeds of the pattern to give to her local charities helping those who were struggling without work due to Covid.  I gladfully paid for the pattern and started a LOOONG project during her quilt-a-long.  Here's her version of it.... (a smaller more doable size)

This was a quilt along where she posted videos on how to do each step, and also gave us some wonderful tips to make the sewing easier. That day I completed 20ish blocks... I needed 120.

Fast forward to January 2021, when I finally fished attaching all said blocks.

Handed it off to my girlfriend at Aba Daba Quilts to long arm the quilting. And today finally finished sewing the binding on it.

It is 93"x 110" with 120 finished 9" blocks set in an offset barn raising pattern.  It's Done!!!!

Hugs everyone!

I made this banner for my mom and sister a few weeks ago and they immediately put it up on their door... guess they liked it!

This was a one day project with Janel Metsker and her pattern is called Bunny and Blooms.  I altered it a bit, as the original was meant to be more horizontal, and I knew I wanted it for the the door.

I just used scraps that I had and a fat quarter for the backing.  

Time Flies!

 It's June! Almost July! I have just come back from Quilt Canada in Vancouver.   This is a show that highlights the best juried quilts a...
