Sew and Tell….Jackie


Jackie's Quilt

Jackie came to visit the shop and brought her “Cat’s Meow” quilt along for us to see.
Much of the quilt is sewn using her embroidery machine such as the cat blocks, wording, and paw prints.

Jackie used bright batik fabrics which really makes the cats pop on the white background. This quilt in particular is for her nephew and claims it was the most fun she’s ever had making a quilt and has plans to make this one again!

The pattern is by Lunchbox Designs and can be found here.

Dog Gone Cute


Dog Gone Cute Pillow

Heather stitched up a block from this Dog Gone Cute pattern by Canadian designer Lorna McMahon. Heather stitched her block to resemble “Gypsy Rose” Brenda’s French Bulldog puppy who has been spending a bit of time here in the shop.Gypsy Rose

This is a great way to test out a block from the pattern without committing to a large project and a pillow is a fun way to make practical use of a single block. Below is Miss Gypsy Rose with the pillow.
