Sewing Room Updates

In the past months, I have put a lot of efforts in making my sewing/laundry room more functional. I had shared my sewing room before. Since then, I tried different layouts and a lot of thinking went on optimizing my small space (13′ x 7′). I thought I would share it with you again. It might […]

There is one quilt I’ve finished a long time ago that I didn’t share here yet. Why? Because I wanted to finish writing the pattern first.

Duvet Covers for the Boys

Last month, I made a demo to members of the Montreal MQG on half-rectangles triangle. Basically showing my technique for doing HRTs has done in the tutorial I wrote for Sew Mama Sew. We were not a lot of people at that meeting, but everyone seemed to enjoy. I took the opportunity to make a […]
