Woo Hoo!! I'm excited to announce I dusted off my video/tech fears (they were growing dust elephants!) and I started a YouTube Channel with the assistance of my daughter Mallory.
I have been asked many times over the last 12 months to provide video classes. I'm starting out in JK (not literally, but you get it) with YouTube video tutorials and working on classes! Hang in there for all those who have been asking. I'm hoping for the wait to be over soon. That being said there is a lot of work that goes into the videos/ demos so please add your comments (good or bad) and subscribe so I know you are interested and it's worth your time!
The video below explains what I have happening for May and each month I will announce what is going on for video tutorials. Sometimes there will be free pattern downloads as well. My you tube channel is Quilting In The Loft. The first video comes out May 3 and the second May 17th. Have a look, I'll look forward to your comments and ANY suggestions you might have. Have a great weekend!
In this video I am excited to announce that I have started a You Tube Channel! Look up Quilting In The Loft on You Tube starting May 3, 2021 and I'll be sharing 2 videos monthly (maybe more in the future) with great tips and techniques to improve all levels of quilting skills! So long in the making, a huge learning curve, but so much fun!!. Special Thanks to my talented videographer and creative assistant Mallory Bogaert!
I know it's not sewing and/or quilting but I cannot be one dimensional. Just thought I'd share a little bit of info about my Gluten Free, Covid Baking. If we are going to be locked down, we might as well enjoy it right?
Because I wanted a treat, I made the amazing ginger snap cookies shown above on my vintage cake stand. Oh they are so good I wanted to share where I got them from. They are from the book Gluten-Free Cookies by Luane Kohnke. I have made several of her recipes including these "Ginger Molasses Cookies" ( I call them ginger snaps), her Oatmeal Almond Cookies with Dates and her No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Drops, MMMMMM for mouth watering. I'm super gluten sensitive but love sweets and these cookies satisfy my cravings.
I'm going to have to try more of her recipes! It's all cookies, hard cover, 50 crave-able recipes & gluten free basics from an accomplished gourmet baker. I just had to mention this book, I'm impressed.
For all of you gluten free bakers: If you are interested in obtaining a copy of her very affordable book , its here.
Rave reviews from me so far!
Have a great week and hang in there! We are all in this world wide pandemic together. Find stuff to do, learn something new, call a friend or family member, walk with a friend, bake, sew, quilt, craft, stay busy and stay happy! 💐
Today is the last day of my all week blog series with www.quiltsocial.com and Half Rectangle Triangles. I'm sharing with viewers how to sandwich & baste the table runner and some fantastic modern layouts for HRT's . Check it out here.
Have a great weekend! 🌷
Today at QUILTsocial, I'm demoing 6 steps to sew perfect 1/2 rectangle triangles. Head on over to the blog post and follow along all week to master this technique here. This will be your method for accurate HST's & for future reference!
Have a great Tuesday and enjoy the sunshine☀️
Need to freshen up your table decor or take away any pandemic blues with a gorgeous table runner? This series of blog posts is for you! I hope you will follow along and enjoy here.
All this week from April 12-16 I'll be guest blogging and sharing how to make HRT's (Half Rectangle Triangles) at www.quiltsocial.com
I'm going to be demonstrating with some very nice fabric and notions as shown below.
Stay busy, don't let this pandemic get you down, have a great week and Happy Monday!
OMGee this is my first video, go easy on me!!
Next week I'm guest blogging at QUILTsocial If you have never tried an HRT or want to try something new, then this is the blog post for you..
Below also is a pic of the table runner made from the gorgeous Fabric Creations Cotton Fabric I will be discussing.
Hope you are having a great week and join me April 12-16 here.
I promised to post a picture of (one) of my most recent finishes for 2021, the baby boy memory quilt made from a baby's clothing. It's done and was so much fun! I hope my client "Carol' loves it. She had brought her adult son's baby clothing to me with a recommendation to incorporate snow boarding (his childhood passion). It's a modern and risky take on a baby quilt but I do believe it turned out lovely. It is not common for me to do memory quilt ( I just don't have the time) but I am happy with the result.
If you are making a memory quilt, think outside of the box and make it memorable!
Have a great Wednesday ❤️
Hi to all my followers, fellow students from classes, friends and family. Happy New Year to you all. Here in Ontario we are in a lock-down with Covid 19 and that means not going anywhere, staying home and avoiding contact with people. It also means my hubby is working for home as am I (no change there) except for no travelling for teaching/trunk shows and no quilt shopping (yikes). No fun but I also know how important it is to get this pandemic under control.
I am working at a snails pace 1) because I have tendonitis in my shoulder and am forced to slow down and
2) I think the pandemic has affected my motivation, go figure.
I have lot's of quilts in a lineup to be long arm quilted but it's more of a turtle and a hare situation. I will get them done slowly, but they will get done eventually. I am also working on some custom quilts and research for upcoming work.
I wanted to let you all know I started a new instagram hashtag and it's #gettingquiltsdonein2021 - feel free to use this hashtag and show us all what you are getting done.
My work is going there when I post quilty stuff on instagram and I would love to see yours :)
Below are some pics of current work, not all complete but in progress:
BOM Border Creek Station 2021
I am working on this BOM from Border Creek Station 2021 and allowing myself to have "Happy Mondays" instead of "blue mondays" by starting off the week with a little piecing (2 blocks) just for me. The colourful fabric is my inspiration point and the rest of the blocks are meant to go with the colourful fabric, hopefully it will bust through some of my scraps!
