We the North Since 1867 quilt top is done! Sharing a bit about the process of creating it on the blog.
Well, I'm clearly on a red and grey kick right now. I designed this quilt last year in honour of Canada's sesquicentennial celebration, which will be next year, and I've been sitting on the design ever since trying to get up the courage to do the foundation paper piecing.

TGIFF! is On! Come link up those finishes!
Welcome to TGIFF! You know the phrase about the cobbler's children having no shoes? Well, my kids' feel that when it comes to sewing Beaver/Cub/Scout badges on their uniforms or camp blankets. I am also a Beaver leader so you would think that I'd be all over sewing them on in a timely manner.

The May theme for Bee Sewcial is Direction! 
May is my month to be Queen Bee for BeeSewcial. I've known almost from the start what I wanted to explore with this group. I'm asking my beemates to channel their inner urban planner this month. Our theme is direction. My inspiration is Stephen Von Worley's maps coloured by orientation.

A game you can play with a box of Denyse Schmidt fat quarters the next time you have time to kill waiting for a flight...
On the way home from QuiltCon, the #ottmqgdrinkingteam, as we named the OMQG contingent at QuiltCon 2016, had some time to kill while waiting for our flight. After the excitement of a star spotting (which took me a month to figure out his name -- sorry Ken!), we got down to some play time.

Playing with layers for Bee Sewcial
March's theme for Bee Sewcial was layers. Hillary (@entropyalwayswins on Instagram) wanted blocks that conveyed layers in turquoises, blues, oranges, greys and whites. I knew what I wanted to do with one of the blocks early on. I did layers of the Fibonacci sequence on the first block, ...

Time for TGIFF! Come join us to celebrate those hard earned finishes.
Woo hoo! It's TGIFF! time again. I've got a bit of a weird naming story for the quilt I'm sharing this week. This quilt started with the need to use up some scraps from an overflowing scrap bin. I wanted to try to use more tones and colours that aren't my favourites.

Talking about our Capital Swap with DCMQG!
