off the shelf

I have a new book on my shelf.

Fresh Quilting by  Malka Dubrawsky



If you like bright color and modern designs then it’s likely that you will love this book.

It’s full of interesting projects.  Everything from small pot holders, to full-sized quilts.

Malka also has a great  blog.  I just love her inspiring designs.

A Christmas gift for a crafty friend.  I made this little pin cushion today.

The pattern is called Spring Violets. It’s designed by clever, Heather Bailey.

You can find a copy of  it here

I had some baskets that I was using to store fabric and they were looking a little tatty.

I thought it might be nice to revamp them by adding a new lining.

The baskets were blue so of course the lining had to be red.


 I did a little cutting and sewing

fitted the lining to my baskets

then popped them into the cupboard to hold all my crafty goodies

dresden daze


A while ago a made a quilt that I called Dresden Daze.

  At the time I wrote a pattern for it but I never got around to putting it on my blog page.

Better late than never.  So here it is!



The Dresden Plates are machine pieced and hand appliqued to the the background blocks.

Then a simple alternate  block with four corner triangles was added.

Finally three quarter plates were added to each corner to form part of the border.
