These are quilts 4 and 5 of the 12 I hope to complete by the end of the year. They are going to a charity that provides quilts for people going through cancer treatments. I want people to see that charity quilts can be fun, fast, and good looking!
They were quilted by my friend Sharyn of Huntley Quilting Studio.
This is my latest pattern Rise, out now in the new issue of Make Modern.
The bottom photo shows my inspiration which is a column in the Casino du Lac Leamy in the Ottawa-Hull area. Sadly the quilt is upside down in the photo because I felt very conspicuous taking the photo and just hurried LOL! I am glad I finally did get that photo though as it shows me that I really did manage to attain the 3D effect I had been aiming for.
I'm letting you know that Make Modern is raising its prices for the first time (by a teeny, tiny amount), but if you get in before September 1 you will receive the current price for as long as you subscribe!
In the coming issue is one of my quilts and I am the featured maker!!
My pattern for Capsule is now available for sale in my etsy shop as a PDF! Paper patterns will be coming very soon and if you want your local quilt store to carry them you can ask them to drop me a note!
You can purchase Capsule at LethargicLass.etsy.com
You can use this coupon code "friends16" to purchase a copy for only $5 ASD, it is an e-magazine.
For this pattern I only submitted a drawing of my idea and when I started trying to make half rectangle triangles I thought my goose was cooked! Several tries later I finally got it and I hope you will use my pattern to try this fun cousin of the HST!
I recently made a bag as a thank you gift for a friend of mine. The pattern is the Zip Top Tote from Anna Graham's book Handmade Style. One important note if you are going to make this it to use a purse zipper for the wider tape, I struggled quite a bit.
Last night I sat down to figure out some new pouch dimensions. I wanted something long and low, and after trial and error came up with this.
And then I made a second one and put them both in my Etsy store. I do plan for several more to be made soon.
