Vintage Tin

“Vintage Tin” is a Crabapple Hill pattern, and this beautiful version was stitched by Sandra. I didn’t have a pantograph that looked like tire tracks, so we settled on “Celtic Scroll” instead, claiming it looked a bit like hubcaps. Maybe it was just our imagination, but it is a simple scroll pattern that worked well for the quilt.

Midnight Blooms

This is the last of three quilts that Angela of Cozy Cottons Quilting dropped off for quilting at the same time, a great pattern to feature a fabric that you don’t want to cut into tiny pieces. She chose the design “Diagonal Plaid Bias Cut” to finish her project.

Strippy Hearts

Here is another great pattern for a Jelly Roll. I especially love all the pink but the hearts would look great in any other colourway too. This quilt was also made by Angela of Cozy Cottons Quilting and she chose a heart pattern called “P.S. I Love You” to finish her project.

Ocean Spray

This lovely quilt in blue and turquoise was made by Angela. If you are local and haven’t met Angela, you should absolutely come and do so. In March she opened a new quilt shop in town, Cozy Cottons Quilting. She isn’t just a wonderful quilter, she is also a very friendly and cheerful person, and if petting fabrics at a quilt shop doesn’t put you in a great mood, Angela certainly will. This quilt and many others are displayed in the store as samples. The pattern Angela chose for her quilt is called “Overlapping Crop Circles”, one of my favourites. It has a modern look and adds great texture.

Giraffe Abstractions

I have quilted a couple of “Elephant Abstractions” for customers but never a Giraffe before. This one was made by Karen as a donation for a fundraiser, and she asked for simple quilting, so we chose the pattern “Taj Mahal”. Didn’t it turn out just wonderful?

Stiletto Stars

Lynnette made this quilt using the fabric line “Stiletto” by Basic Grey/Moda. Doesn’t it look elegant? I especially love the checkerboard border and how it blends into the background. The modern pantograph Lynnette chose for her project is called “Overlapping Crop Circles”.

Hunny Bunnies BOM – Block #6

Welcome to June and (almost) summer! Although it sure doesn’t feel like summer up here in the Pacific Northwest! May Long Weekend was quite nice, and we are supposed to have a few warmer days this week but other than that the forecast looks not very promising. But at least the overnight temperatures are warmer now, and I was able to put out all my tomatoes, cucumbers and squash plants. The cukes and squash collection especially was quite a jungle already! I started them later than last year but once they sprout, they just grow like crazy. The brassicas (brassicae? I studied Latin for seven years, I guess that still shows sometimes LOL), seem to like the weather though, as do the peas. The potatoes are looking good too. My husband suggested last week that we should grow sweet potatoes next year. Ha… I wouldn’t even know where to put those. We are definitely running out of space in the backyard. Maybe we need to put a bed or two out in front of the house? Something to ponder next fall/winter.

For this month’s bunny block, we have a little guy riding his scooter. My original idea was riding a bicycle but that would have been too complicated. The scooter was difficult enough to simplify, a bike would have been impossible. I didn’t even know where to start and quickly changed the plan. Of course he is wearing a helmet for safety reasons, get ready to dive into your scrap bins for just the right kind of fabric. The pattern will be available for free download (English/Imperial only) until the end of the month and move to the pattern store when the July block is released.

Welcome Home

“Welcome Home” was made by Sharon, and as you can probably tell I had a lot of fun custom quilting it. This is such a sweet quilt with lots of details to discover… birds, dogs, cats and even sheep. Sharon added buttons and ric rac for details, and the sheep are three-dimensional. Truly a labour of love.

Jelly Roll Race

Kelley made this fabulous Jelly Roll Race quilt. I quilted it with “Champagne Bubbles”. These always work well with lots of straight lines in a quilt top but they look especially great with the modern fabrics in Kelley’s quilt.

Falling Charms

“Falling Charms” is a great pattern for charm packs (or leftover squares), and this cute little quilt was made by Mary. The soft colours and floral patterns pretty much ask for floral quilting, and Mary chose the design” Ginger Flower” to finish her project.

New Patterns: Bunny Buddies Quilt & Pillow

When I started playing around with bunny ideas last year for the new BOM, I got sidetracked and came up with a different bunny pattern. I quite liked it even though it wasn’t suitable at all for a BOM. I have been working on it on and off, and the pattern is now ready to be released. The Bunny Buddies are simple shapes, so if my usual tiny pieces are not your cup of tea or if you have never tried your hands at fusible appliqué, this is a great pattern to start with. You can even substitute the bunny tails for circles instead of the flower shapes that I used. I also created a matching pillow, I just love the bunny silhouettes, and especially the little guy with the floppy ear.

PPP-065 Bunny Buddies


PPP-066 Bunny Buddies Pillow


Both patterns are now available for purchase in the pattern store. I have also created a discount code, if you enter BUNNY20 you will get 20% off. The code is valid until May 20, 2022 (11.59 pm PDT) and applies to the Bunny Buddies and Bunny Buddies Pillow patterns only.




If you want both patterns, I have also created a bundle at a discount price that is valid until further notice.



Eine deutsche Version mit metrischen Maßen gibt es nur für das Kissen, für den Quilt lohnt sich der Aufwand für mich leider nicht. Der Discount Code BUNNY20 gilt natürlich auch für die deutsche Version.

Dancing Wave Bargello

Darlene, the Bargello queen among my customers, dropped off another Dancing Wave Bargello to be quilted. Most of the time her quilts are huge and get to the limits of my frame, and every time she swears she will never do another one as big. We get a good chuckle out of that because we both know it is just a question of time before she’ll be back with another one. This one is a gift for her daughter, and the daughter requested the pattern “Ripples” that I had used on another one of Darlene’s quilts before.
