Spell it with Fabric Moda Blog Hop

Thursday, February 20th, 2014


Thank you for joining me for the “Spell it with Fabric” Moda Blog Hop.

My letter is … L

I made my block using two of my favorite fabrics from my “High Street” collection. They are  Moda 1147019 and 1147413. You can find the instructions to make this letter here.

What are your initials?
My initials are LA.

My favorite quilt block
Well, that’s a hard question but right now I’m loving the simple pinwheel motif in the “LOUISIANA” quilt block. I designed this with three of the fabrics coming out this May in my “Folklore” collection. They are as follows: Moda 1148316, 1148415 and 1148516.

Here is a sneak peek at my Folklore collection.

My favorite memory about school …
LOCKING LIPS
with my high school boyfriend in front of my LOCKER. I guess I was a bit of a rebel:)

My favorite book, movie or television show …
Anything starring Jude LAW!

I love quilting because …
it’s on my LIST of things to learn because truth be told I’m a bit of a novice. I have found designing quilt patterns has been an excellent way for me to learn the basics, with the help of some talented and experienced friends. Up for grabs today is my “High Street” quilt pattern as well as a layer cake. To enter, comment below about why you love quilting and I will choose a random winner on February 28th.

What if everyday was a holiday?
That would be wonderful as I’d have more time to pursue all of the creative activities I LOVE.

Is there an object, tool or anything that you cannot work without?
My LONG-SUFFERING Cintiq love designing by drawing directly on my computer monitor.

Do you have a quote or motto you live (or work) by?
This one popped up on Facebook today and kind of struck a chord.

Since Spring is just around the corner and ’tis the season for organizing, I thought I’d share this desktop wallpaper with you.

Inspiring Holiday Tradition

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

I love Thanksgiving because it’s the time to express your gratitude for the blessings in your life. Here in Canada we celebrated Thanksgiving last month and this is something I did with my family this year so I’m going to share this with my American friends who will be celebrating Thanksgiving this month.

Using these leaf templates, have your guests write about the things that they are thankful for and place them in a jar. At Thanksgiving dinner, we took turns reading notes from the jar. I think it gave all of us a warm fuzzy feeling and my wish is to continue the tradition every year.

 

 

Dress up your treat bags!

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Here’s a fun and super easy Halloween craft! I used Speedball Speedy-Carve blocks readily available at Michael’s . This material cuts like butter and is so fast to work with, just use any carving knife or the following set, also available at Michael’s. I stamped my designs onto glassine bags and I think they make great goody bags for Halloween.

You can download my designs here if you’d like or create your own. Have fun and Happy Halloween!
