Clothes Sewing

As you probably noticed there isn’t much clothes sewing around here. After sewing so many projects, I thought I might have acquired enough skills to tackle some clothes. I had bought the Washi dress pattern a while ago, and I finally took the time to make one. I made it with some chambray union fabric […]

Exhibit by the Mtl MQG!

As I mentioned in previous post, the Montreal Modern Quilt Guild prepared an exhibit. Just a quick post today to let you know that the exhibit is open since Sunday and it will run throughout the month of February (free admission). It was really a pleasure to collaborate with Maison de la culture Marie-Uguay on […]

Vitrine sur la courtepointe moderne

The Montreal Modern Quilt Guild and its members have been working hard at putting up an exhibit on modern quilting. It all started with a challenge organized by the guild. We proposed our members to create a small quilt (30″ x 40″) that would be representative of a design element seen in modern quilting. This was […]

Contradiction Quilt

I got great news yesterday night! I have a quilt accepted in QuiltCon 2016. Yeah! It’s a quilt I have made for the Triangle Quilt Challenge using the EZ Quilting Triangle Templates. I had signed-up for the challenge and received the mini 45 degree triangle. I was happy to have the opportunity to play with triangles once again. […]

Triangular Thread Catcher

Just a quick post today. You know how much I love triangles. When I saw this thread catcher, I thought I need to make one for my-self. I actually made one for me and a second one for my aunt who just started sewing more seriously. The exterior fabric is canvas leftover from my new […]

New bag!

I needed a new bag. My previous purse was falling apart. The Essex linen did not withstand being carried around on a daily basis. So back in spring a settled on a pattern and ordered some fabrics. I really love the design of the Uptown Saddlebag by StudioKat Designs. I like its shape and how it folds. […]

Pillows for Camelot Fabrics

Camelot Fabrics is a Montreal based fabric company.  So, very close to me. I had never worked with their fabrics before, beside their printed felt. But, they have a great selection of modern prints. Last year, they contacted me to work on some projects for them. I had to make two pillow covers for one […]

New Beat!

With Halloween approaching, school started already 2 months ago. For me this means a whole new beat, since my two boys are now in school. Here is a lunch bag and pencil case I made for my younger one for his entry to school. After my second child was born, me and my husband decided I […]

Folding Trays in Stitch Fall 2015

It’s been a while since I’ve published a pattern in a magazine. But now that Stitch Fall 2015 is out, I can let you know about my latest one. It’s a pattern for a set of 3 folding trays. The fall issue is filled with great projects, and I’m happy to have this fun and quick project part of them. […]

Expanding my favorite jeans life

Just a short post today. I had a pair of jeans that I just loved, it’s so comfortable and it’s a good fit for me. Unfortunately, it had a hole on one of the knees, so I wasn’t wearing them anymore. But, I couldn’t part with them. So, I decided to expand their life by cutting […]
