Sew and Tell….Ronnie-Leigh


We received a lovely email from a happy customer, Ronnie-Leigh who recently completed the Canadian Mystery quilt.  We love her addition of the “Homecoming” block at the top of the quilt. Below Ronnie-Leigh gives us some insight to her completed quilt below;

When you started the Canadian Mystery BOM, I happily signed on to tackle
this quilt as a very large (to me) project for the first time on my own, without support
from the ladies who taught me to quilt – the ladies at the Herne Bay Quilt
& Craft Club, Herne Bay, Kent, England, which I belonged to from 2011 to

I moved back to Canada in late 2015 and came upon your BOM program for this
quilt. While working full time as a Transit Operator in Ontario, 3 house
moves and 3 months with my left hand in a splint (unable to sew), I have
finally completed my Canada 150 Mystery Quilt. (I’ve had it quilted with a
maple leaf motif).

I would have loved to show you in person but I live to far away so a photo
will have to do.

I’m going back to England in a few weeks to visit and pop into the Club and am
taking my quilt with me to share with them.

We are thrilled she shared her quilt with us. It is truly beautiful!  Thank you Ronnie-Leigh!Ronnie

Sew and Tell….Ursala


One of our regular customers named Ursala was in the shop last week with a Sampler quilt she recently completed.  She started the quilt in 2016 using Pat Sloan’s “The Splendid Sampler“.  You could spend all afternoon looking at all the details of the different blocks as there is a bit of everything, hand applique, english paper piecing, blanket stitch applique, embroidery and more. Here are a few;
