Four New Patterns ready!

Four new patterns including three for Northcott and a Block of the Month! Fall 2014 was crazy busy but oh so much fun. December was spent catching up, completing commitments and  getting some patterns written and published. I have also finally been able to get back to some patterns in progress and hope to have […]


Hook line and Sinker block 9 results- We’re Done!

A smaller crew this morning for our last get together-the almost year has flown by! Harvesting and family duties kept two of our dedicated sewers away, we missed you. We’ll have to see what the New Year brings… maybe this favourite from Crabapple Hill? It’s called “Shiny &Brite” Here are our results, so far, for […]

The Narrows- a favourite spot!

Three new designs launched by Northcott

Northcott is introducing a new line of fabric in the “Shimmer” family called Sandscapes. It is luscious, beautiful shades shot through with metallics and coordinates well with the existing Shimmer and Stonehenge fabric lines. It is also perfect for stained glass quilts-the marbling looks like coloured glass! The line was launched this past weekend at […]

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.

Postcards from Muskoka Block 8 The Cottage

Block 8, Cottage (available at The Muskoka Quilting Company in Bracebridge) Well, let’s face it, Muskoka is known as “Cottage Country”. Even the rich and famous flock there for a bit of R&R (and hopefully a bit of anonymity, or at least quiet!). There are some pretty swanky places in and around the area, 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 […]
