Half way

Through the year! Whoa. Thanks so much for all your kind words regarding the little for sale quilts! Some are still available and I am going to add a couple more soon. I will be opening an etsy store soon too. Turns out it will be the easiest way, ha!

I’m home alone for almost the week, well Mitch is here too, we’ve been walking a lot. Turns out having a dog and not sharing the walks with someone else is tons of work! I’ve been making a few things, trying to stave off some homesickness as I miss my little nieces  first birthday and my sisters 30somethingth. Rainbow coloured breakfasts, Scandinavian music, the worst romance/comedy movies I can find on netflix and sewing are all helping. And Skype. Thank the maker for Skype.

I made another little delectable mountains quilt for Ange’s good friend Eamon, who had a baby girl earlier this year. I like how bright and cheery this quilt is. I always ask Ange’s advice on backing fabrics and while we don’t always agree, this one we both were 100%!

The cool thing is always when I get a picture of the little recipient with their quilt! Even better Luella’s Dad, Eamon is a professional photographer.

I’m trying to decide (agonizingly) on which pattern to use for a surprise quilt I’m wanting to finish by the end of the year (it’s a biggie) but sometimes when something means so much to you, it’s especially hard to just go with the flow and not over analyze every detail. I want it to be super special, but I’m second guessing my original idea, so I’ll have to spill the beans with someone to get some advice!

Enjoy the week. I hope it’s a goodie wherever you are. Make a rainbow breakkie if you get the chance! It’s surprisingly satisfying : )

Quilts for Sale!

I’m so happy to write this post with a couple of my little quilts for sale. At this point I’m not setting up a store, I’ll write the prices for each under the photos and you can email me if you’re interested! I hope so much you like them and can think of someone who might enjoy one. Shipping will be something I’ll figure out specific to each country and I think paypal invoicing will be the easiest way to pay, but maybe if things get complicated I’ll figure something else out. Prices are Canadian dollars.

While these look best for smaller folk, please note I have numerous small quilts I use while watching telly and I can’t imagine life without one to snuggle under, so they’re for all ages. Although I do especially love seeing my 3 year old god-daughter sleep under the one I made her when she was born as well as carry it around the house.

I’ve been making a point of using all my FAVOURITE fabrics this year. Often quilters hoard fabric and just pet some of it instead of using it. But I realized they are SO MUCH HAPPIER IN A QUILT. Ha!! Of course. These quilts all use my best fabrics, some of which will be gone for good soon. I like to try different techniques with the little quilts too, so you’ll see a collection of squares and triangles making up different patterns here.

First up, Morning Walk with friends, with the majority of this fabric designed by the amazing Leah Duncan this little quilt is an abstract landscape, dark in one corner, green in another, it is one of my favourites for sure.

$220 + shipping   100% cotton   measures: 45in x 38in (115cm x 96cm)

My second is a variation on the tradition pattern known as the Irish chain, but mine is multicoloured. It was inspired by a similar one I saw posted on Craftsy (I’m not sure who made it originally, sorry whoever made it). I love grey, so I always like to sneak it in as a neutral when I can. Backed in cheery feathers, this one is also one of my favourites ; )

Colourful Irish Chain

$220 + shipping   100% cotton   measures: 53in x 38.5in (135cm x 98cm)

The last quilt I’m posting this month is one you might have glimpsed before (if you follow my instagram). This pattern is known as a version of “Delectable Mountains” which are really fun blocks to arrange in all different patterns! I had a lot of input with choosing this one, which was so fun. It is backed in one of my all time favourite prints (again, Leah Duncan ♥)

Delectable Desert Mountains

SOLD  100% cotton   measures: 44in x 30.5in (112cm x 78cm)

These are all machine washable in cold water and you can dry them on warm too. Especially good if babies and toddlers use them! Don’t forget different computers or devices make colours look a bit different, so if you want to know more, contact me!

That’s it for now. I feel almost nervous posting these for sale. I genuinely love making these and always make them thinking  - oh I’m going to keep this one for myself… While they are all smaller quilts, they take a couple weeks for me to make from start to finish, I’m not so fast and I work full time, so they’re my relaxation and creativity on weekends. Thanks for taking a look and please share if you think someone you know might love one.

PS, more quilts coming next month too, a couple more neutralish and a more ‘boyish’ one too!! Stay tuned.

Happy May!
