A Quilt for Leukemia and Lymphoma

one last snuggle before we sent this #quilt away!
A quilt I made a year ago finally is going to find a new home! My friend Stephanie and her friend Abe are working to raise $100,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Which is truly ambitious and exciting! I thought maybe this quilt could help them raise some funds. It's a bright and happy quilt and I'm excited to see it go! If you would like to find out more about their efforts, please visit this link.

Parisville Quilt

finally ready to #quilt my @tulapink Rubans Pour Les Cheveux quilt designed by @j_q_adams #quiltdad
I finally purchased some Parisville fans in pomegranate to back my quilt! I also chose a variegated thread to quilt with. Now just to sandwich and baste!

Painting with Antonio

#painting with antonio
Yesterday I did a little painting with my son Antonio who is 4. He loves to draw and paint so I thought it might be fun to paint something with him.

He loves drawing shapes and using lots of colours.

planning the next border #marcellemedallion #patchwork #sewing
This is where I looked at the book sample and tried to imagine where I needed to go! I think adding the chambray border was a good pick! Follow the fun on instagram!

Pillow Cover finished!

finished #pillow #sewing #patchwork
I decided to make a quick gift for my parents in law's 50th wedding anniversary. Just about the only things they decorate with are small pillows in their minimalist style home. So I thought I'd make something they could use. Here is a look at the process:

The cover is fully removable with a zipper and can be washed separately from the pillow. It is also quilted with warm n natural so it stands nicely on its own.
