New Pattern for Northcott – “Ready! Set! Go!”

My husband loves Formula 1 racing. So when Northcott fabrics proposed I do up a pattern for them using their new Speedway line by Deborah Edwards, I said YES!  I made this baby quilt with the fabric, and I expect I’ll have to do a larger version for my husband.

What to do with leftover scraps from the leftover scraps!

They are into Dogs!

A quilt I made for a friend’s grandson. The fabric is a line from Northcott.

Picture Day and Merry Christmas

  Indoor tree Merry Christmas! All the best for 2013! Lots of sewing, writing, quilting, love, family and good health. My inside tree and my outside tree. We are all beautiful.  And cardinals and blue jays in my back yard.
