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.

Sew and Tell….Joanne


Joanne has been at it again. Whipping up some more projects in that fabulous sewing room of hers. This time she brought in some baby quilts.

The first is a flannel quilt which features Into the Woods fabric by Maria Kalinowski.

Sew and Tell….Rebecca’s Beatle Bag


Rebecca's Beatle BagRebecca came into the store with her Beatle Bag. This is a really neat little sewing tote which could easily be used for make-up, travel, jewellery, or craft storage. She used North Woods fabric by Kate Spain and it is really lovely.  Have a look inside at all the pockets and organization features…Rebecca's Beatle Bag - insideRebecca's Beatle Bag - inside 2

Rebecca made a few small changes from the original pattern to suit her personal needs which is a great benefit to sewing your own projects.

The Beatle Bag pattern comes with 4 plastic inserts and more can be ordered separately so you can make another for a friend like Rebecca is currently doing.

Thank you Rebecca for sharing you project with us!
