Finished the quilt top that I started in a class with Katie Pedersen last week at QuiltCon. So much fun and she is a great teacher!  @sewkatiedid #psychedelicbaby #psychedelicbabyquilt #quiltcon #quiltconclass #quiltcon2018 #improvquilting #modernquilts #babyquilt

It’s here!  I am so honoured to have my quilt “Tilting at Windmills” surrounded by 200+ awe-inspiring quilts made by 200+ amazing quilters. Thank you to @alissahaightcarlton @vesselquilts @moderndayquilts for including it. Modern Quilts:  Designs of the New Century is a beautiful book. #modernquilts #themqg #designsofthenewcentury #quiltbook

Four friends and I are all going to make the Cascade quilt from the @victoriafindlaywolfe book #modernquiltmagic.  We decided to do a fabric exchange and each cut five identical groupings to share. Finished cutting mine this afternoon. There are 4 more piles just like this one.  Used up about 12 yards of fabric and didn’t even make a dent in the stash!  @rosecityquilter @janicemilller #vfwquilts #cascadequilt #thatsalotofcutting

I wonder if any of the Royal family was binge watching The Crown over the weekend?  #thecrown #theroyalfamily #bingewatching
Really Amazon.ca?  You jacked up the price of the “bestseller” Instant Pot by $50 CDN just in time for your Black Friday deals!?! And it’s $100 more than on Amazon.com? 🤬  What a rip-off!  #letthebuyerbeware #ripoff @amazon @amazoncan

A Wild Ride quilt top finished. I used the templates by @jenkingwell that I bought at QuiltCon 2017. Fabric is a fat quarter bundle of Observer by @aprilarhodes.  #observerfabrics #awildridequilt #acrylictemplatesrock
My first attempt at herringbone. But definitely not my last!  Made so easy with instructions by @victoriafindlaywolfe from her new book #modernquiltmagic #partialseams #notsoscary #tattoofabric
Finally quilted and bound this little quilt. I used an Art Gallery knit for backing (Acqua Di Rose from the Boho Fusion collection). So soft!  And it is so light!  I was a little worried about how it would work for quilting but I just quilted straight lines and it was no problem. Have you ever used a knit fabric for your backing?  It would be dreamy paired with voile or a double gauze.

Loving how this quilt top turned out!  The fabric line is Spirit Animal by Tula Pink.  I used the excellent double wedding ring and full melon acrylic templates by Victoria Findlay Wolfe that I picked up at QuiltCon in Savannah. Now to decide on the quilting!  #tulapinkfabric #spiritanimalfabric #tulapinkspiritanimal #vfwquilts #vfwdwrtemplates #dwrquilt #dwrtemplates #doubleweddingringquilt #quiltcon2017
Picked up some #tulapinkspiritanimal from @QFTH yesterday and have been playing. Fabulous colours!  @tulapink  #spiritanimalfabric #tulapinkfabric
