Sewing, knitting and embroidery from The Cozy Quilter

I have been participating in a round-robin quilt project with a group of 5 other quilters from the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild over the past few months.  We each made a centre block and then everyone else in the group makes a border or another block or two for each member of the group according to the style/colours chosen by the quilter.  This month, my block is for J.  Her block was pieced in an improv style with these colours.  I dug into my scrap bins and made her a block that I hope will compliment what she made ...

Egg Baskets and Barn Cats from The Modern Diary

Hazel did a little earth day art.  She was pretty proud of herself!  We are secretly making mosaic type stepping stones for mother's day.  We only have one mold and I want one for mom, Hannah and me so we do one each day she comes.  She does not mind having her foot in sticky stuff!
I have made two of the Bachelor Button Blues mini quilts from Red Button Quilts (free pattern this month) but I forgot the brown outer border on the second one.  Decided I like it floating so that is okay.  I did the handwork ...

Star Watch: a Christmas quilt featuring Hearthside Holiday from Carried Away Quilting

My daughter was home this weekend and commented that she hoped this quilt was for her, as she really loved the striking black and red, the buffalo checks and plaids, and the deer head motif. The traditional holiday elements have a slightly contemporary feeling thanks to that color combination, we decided. Sadly ...
