Improv Quilt - WIP

Spent last Saturday sewing with Sarah (in the picture). I was working on another project but asked her to hold this one up for the picture. I usually have to ask the husband but I think I need some new quilt models. :)

I think I'm moving out of my bright color phase now. Moving towards softer colors and a lot of blues, aquas, and teals. We'll see where that goes!

Quilt Store visit in Leesburg Virginia

We visited family over Christmas and this very nice quilt store/sewing studio in the historic downtown of Leesburg. It's a beautiful, well curated store and they have a whole bunch of classes for quilting, knitting, sewing and crafting. 

I bought a fat quarter bundle of Elizabeth Olwen's Wildwood. Was happy to buy something from a Toronto based designer! :)

TMQG Feb Meeting

I'm so glad I joined the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild this year! I've been wanting to for about 2 years now and this year I decided I would do it! I enjoy going to the meetings and getting to know other quilters and talking about quilting. It's wonderful!

See more about the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild and if you're in Toronto you should definitely check us out!

QAYG Selvage Block

I made a selvage block a little while ago. You can see it here: Some Selvage Fun
I wanted to make some more. I guess this is also called a String Block?
Anyway - here's how I made these.
