Meet the Yippies

These google eyed guys are fun to make!

My Yippies quilt is finally quilted and bound....

And will begin it's journey across the pond come Monday.

I used solids pieced from any "full width of" that I could find in my stash.

I used 3" squares folded into triangles for hanging tabs on the corners.

And quilted in grey both on top and in the bobbin .

Organic wavy lines using my walking foot.

I adore the saturated text prints.
Little words can say a lot.



"Yippies" finished at 18" square.

This fun little mini quilt is going to a special friend I have made on Instagram. Her name is Alison @aash113 and you can follow her here. She has made me a mini too!!! Click here to seeeeeee!!!!!

Fabric and Friends

Got to admit....

I have been really, really good, using up fabrics from my stache during the past two years. But every once in a while you need to freshen things up and acquire something new.

Back in January....

Christmas fabrics were on sale at Ye Olde Fabric Shoppe in Stratford, Ontario.

Finish the bolt for an additional 10% off?


And then my sister and I recently went for a drive to nearby London, Ontario.
Picked up these sweet pieces of yardage at the Grand Re-Opening of Stache Fabrics & Notions.

Thank you for being such wonderful, amazing, generous, beautiful quilty friends!

I must say purchasing new fabric is AMAZING!

But what is even more amazing is YOU!!!!

This email from Julie Vogel arrived shortly after publishing my post:
Super Size - The Math - How to resize any traditionally pieced quilt block

"I recently saw your blog about enlarging some of your patterns, in particular the foxes. Turns out I had already done that and flipped them so as to make mirror images for my Mama Fox and Kits quilt. Here are some pictures of the finished project. I am so pleased with it and appreciated working with such a great fox pattern!

If you would like to share it in any way, you are welcome to. Thank you!"

Aren't they adorable?!!!

Julie, YOU are AMAZING! 

Thank you all so much for sharing your photos and stories with me!


Thanks to all your AMAZING efforts in our fundraiser that continued until the end of January!

In addition to the original total of $1155USD, during 2019, that was split between the NSW Koala Hospital and Rural Fire Service Australia.....

WE ALSO RAISED AN ADDITIONAL WHOPPING $1370USD, for the NSW Koala Hospital in Australia.

Truly, I am AMAZED at how the entire quilting and crafting community has rallied together to help in Australia's time of need.
