Back home for a bit-Phew!!!

Summer was supposed to be down time for reorganizing and designing-didn’t turn out that way though I did get a few finished. I toured the province from Ottawa to Hamilton to Owen Sound and re-connected with some old friends plus got to meet lots of new ones. The fall schedule is pretty full now and […]

Thimbles&Things Shop Sample

Putting Postcards from Muskoka together

Putting it together, borders (available at all shops) I wanted to keep the “postcard” feel of the quilt going, so decided to just frame the individual pictures with small squares. The squares were all cut from leftover scraps from the blocks to tie it all together. I placed my coloured and black squares randomly, but […]

Postcards from Muskoka Block 6, Cedar Canoe

Block 6, Cedar Canoe (available at Country Concessions in Cookstown) There are many famous (and not so famous) paintings and pictures of canoes in the water. A beached canoe can tell so many stories about exploring our amazing lake and river systems. Home after a day out paddling, ready to head out exploring or just […]

Postcards From Muskoka Block 5, Pine and Block 7 Northern Lights

Block 5, Pine Tree and Block 7, Northern Lights (available at Simcoe Sew and Quilt in Barrie) Lonely majestic pines are as Canadian as…….I love the personalities they have and can only imagine the stories they could tell about their long vigils in some pretty inhospitable places. I think I have a favourite tree at […]


Postcards from Muskoka Block 4 Campfire

Block 4, Campfire (available at Elite Quilting in Barrie) Ahhh campfires! Nothing like sitting around the fire in the evening listening to the flames crackle and the kids and racoons fight over marshmallows. Once the mosquitoes go to bed you can relax and just enjoy the day’s end. One of the best things about summer […]
