All 25 blocks are done. Thankfully, I got all my ordered fabric before the ever delightful Canada Post went on strike. Here they are laid out on a queen size bed: Picture quality not so great, I’m aware. I do what I can with the tools I have. Super happy with the way this is [...]

Funny, when you keep a secret for SO long and then the pressure comes down and everything seems to happen so quickly after grinding along for so long. I made my sister a quilt. I told a lot of people, friends and co-quilters (and I think I posted progress on twitter, which it turns out [...]
Or bad aim, depending. I didn’t notice this until I put my shades on and was like, WTF, and checked em out. Gross, huh? None on my hair, though. That’s the good news.

First, the bad news. Or wait, first the good news! I went to my first Toronto Modern Quilt Guild meeting last Sunday and I had fun! It was so nice to meet other quilters of all different ages and backgrounds-all women though. I know male quilters exist, I’ve just never had the pleasure of meeting [...]
