Humans and Canines Agree

All paws up for the wonky diamond.

In the Works


A few weeks ago I pulled out my big messy bag of scraps and sorted it into a few colour schemes. Sunday after far too many days away from the machine, I sat down to sew. This is small sample of what I have made with the scraps over the last few days. 

When I look back at completed projects I think about what I watched while I was making it. And this weekend I had a marathon of Sons of Anarchy. Looking at these cheery, colourful blocks and thinking about that show seem at odds. But that's what I watched! It also is a way of figuring out how many hours I spent on a project.

What do you watch? How do you measure?





Thank You Pillows

I made these in May as a thank you to Sam who stayed with the furry crew while J and I were having an east coast adventure. It was a good way to get scrappy and it isn't shown here, but I used up some wacky Elvis fabric I got in Graceland a few years on the back.

Wonky Diamond in it's New Home

Last weekend J and I went A&B's wedding and they loved the Wonky Diamond! I would definitely make this pattern (see Sew Katie Did) again, but vow not to quilt any more queen-size quilts at home.
