Trick or Treat


Brenda has been stitching away on some Halloween projects. She’s just completed the first of two Trick or Treat wall quilts. She used flannel bits from her stash as mostly small pieces were required for this easy fusible appliqué project. She used a machine sewn buttonhole stitch for the edges of the appliqués as to keep the project timeline short and sweet.

The bewitched jack o’ lantern, friendly crow and black kitty are front and centre of this design.jackkitty-close-upcrow

Brenda added the embroidered button spider of her own creation as a whimsical addition to the project and it is adorable.embroidered-spider

This Halloween cutie is far from spooky and will make a fun addition to your seasonal decor. This pattern is by Cottage Creek Quilts and can be found by clicking on the image below.trick-or-treat-pattern

November Turkey


Where has the time gone? It seems like it was still Summer just last week and BAM just like that it’s already Thanksgiving weekend!

Today we have another Little Quilts Squared Again project. November Turkey couldn’t be more fitting to feature today for us Canadians celebrating the well loved autumn holiday.

If you are new to the blog Little Quilts Squared are 12″ x 12″ seasonal display quilts by The Wooden Bear. November Turkey has a big ol’ turkey front and centre and in the pumkin patch no less. Our quilt was machine appliquéd with and sports wee buttons for the turkeys eyes.november-turkey-centrenovember-turkey-close-up

Bear Paws


We have a new quilt kit in the store. Bear Paw is not your traditional bear paw pattern. Instead this is a panel quilt featuring sweet bears enjoying honey. A detailed pieced inner border adds interest to the design of this large lap size quilt.

The panel and fabrics are from the Bear Paws fabric collection designed by Cheryl Haynes for Benartex. If you want to make something other than the quilt we are offering we have the yadage available as well…

These chubby bears are climbing forest trees and enjoying their honey pots. The palette is irresistible too: rich woodsy colors of burgundy, red, deep green, and gold. Cheryl’s coordinates – tiny beehives, trees, mini bears, and some extraordinary woven looks – are sure to become classics.  Sew charming, you won’t be able to keep your bear paws off this collection!bear-paw

May Flowers Bench Pillow


I know we are far from May but the Kimberbell May Flowers bench pillow is so darned cute I just can’t wait until Spring to show it to you.may-flower-pillow

This pillow cover design features brightly coloured potted flowers, some of which are made with fun ribbon and stand away from the background for dimensional appeal. Each flower has a rick rack stem and is finished with a button red-flower

We have May Flowers available as a kit HERE or a pattern for those who want to use fabrics from their own collection. The pattern is available by clicking on the image below.kd174_z

Flo’s Garden


Heather has been stitching away again, this time she’s whipped up a Fall project. Flo’s Garden is a table runner pattern from The Quilt Patch and is an easy fusible appliqué project with large pieces and minimal colours showcasing the season’s iconic sunflower blooms.

Heather chose to duplicate the colours as shown on the pattern cover using her personal stash of fabric. And as you would expect it is so much nicer in real life than in the photo.flos-garden-close-up flos-garden-and-pattern

This quilt runner would make a warm and inviting addition to your Autumn decor and it’s Jersey approved!flos-garden-and-jersey
