Well today, is a quiet day, ok well quiet moment. Mr Minion had one surgery today, one minion is at school the other with her Nonna. I thought I would pop on to share some of the quilts I made earlier this year. I am working on a bunch of projects right now, finishing a commissioned baby quilt and teachers gifts. I will post pics of those as they are done.

lately I have been working on my WIP's. As quilters we have way too many of these as we often start a new project long before the last one is even close to completion. I have managed though to finish 2 very large projects that I started months ago.

This is my supernova quilt (and my puggle) I had to stand way up my stairs to get this pic as this is a huge queen size quilt. I was first inspired to make this one I saw a pic on Instagram in these colours, it was a block made for a charity quilt and I fell in love. I do love a big block quilt though they do still take time. The pattern is from Freshly Pieced and I have made several bee blocks in this pattern as well. I can't wait to have this quilted

Ah my checkerboard quilt. This is a variation of a pattern by Crazy mom quilts in her book Sunday morning quilts. The initial pattern has over 1700 pieces which measure 2.5' each. That quilt finishes at 80x80. I decided to make mine even bigger and to add borders so mine measures 94'x94' I was standing at the top of my deck to get the whole thing in but it's done!!! Now to get it quilted
 This is a close up of a section of the checkerboard quilt, all the fabrics are from my stash
 Well this is clearly not a finish, but a solid start. This quilt will be a variation on an Irish chain for my son for Christmas. I already have 5 blocks of 9 done, so well on my way
 This is my ribbon start quilt. I requested this when I was Queen bee in my quilt bee. These are all my  blocks. The quilt top is now together, just need to decide on backing. The pattern for this block is from Freshly pieced and is a stunning block on it's own.

Last but not least is my giant starburst. This is a queen sized version and I am so in love with it!!! It is currently with my long armer being made even more fantastic

Hope these pics tide you over till I can show you what I am currently working on :)


  1. I hope that your husband recovers from his surgery very quickly. You have some wonderful (and huge!) quilt tops finished. I can't wait to see how you quilt them.

Well 2016 was a whirlwind, my first minion started jk and my second started daycare a few days a week. Adjusting to those schedules was interesting but we made it and here we are halfway through 2017! I have been sewing a ton, way more than I can even remember lol hopefully I can post some of interest .

This was my first finish of 2016. The giant vintage star, I just love how it turned out it is still one of my very favourite quilts (ok yeah most of them are my favourite ever lol)
This Norway quilt is one of my favourites, I used kona solids in Navy, Azure and Graphite. I love using solids in quilts and this turned out fantastic
Ah the swoon one of my favourite patterns. This was made for my daughter. I used all Vanessa Christendon fabrics I love her stuff especially her ombre
This is a memorial quilt for a dear friend who lost her son. His middle name was Fox and I hope it brings her some comfort 
My first ever on point quilt, I made this for a friend I lobe the classic but beautiful…
So a few weeks ago my hubby (mr. Minion) mentioned to me that while I have made a lot of quilts he himself has never received one. What's this you say? Ok well let me rectify that situation my honey. So I know Mr Minion is a huge fan of Star Wars so Boom! Idea received. Hubby will be getting this quilt (once finished) in time for Christmas
In this pic it is still missing the last 2 rows but they are on now and the quilt top is done!! He will be so surprised! The pattern is from Iron Violet Designs I am also so happy I found the perfect backing for it as fast as I did. I usually agonize over finding the perfect backing but I found this within a few days of finishing the top and got it ordered 😃
