Happenings in Quilty Blogland

There are so many fun and interesting things going on in Blogland these days, I thought I would post about a few of my favourite things from the last week.

Over on the Craftsy blog, you can find two free patterns for your sewing room: a sewing machine organizer and an ironing board cover.

On the Moda Bakeshop, the Moda chefs are putting together a really fun QAL they are calling the Trifle Dish Sew Along. This last week, layer 3 was posted, but this QAL goes on until early July, so plenty of time for you to get caught up, if you want to.

If you're on the market for a new lunch bag, then you might want to go over to the Sew Mama Sew blog right now and get the free tutorial by Sherri of Thread Riding Hood. The fabric she chose for her lunch bags is stunning!

Is your stash out of control? Are you looking for help organizing it? If so, hop on over to A Quilting Life. Sherri has a new series on her blog to help you get organized. You might to check out her posts even if you don't think you need help... She's got amazing eye candy on her blog!

Jessica from the blog Quilty Habit is curating a series of posts titled My Favorite Quilt over at Sew Mama Sew and this one really caught my eye this week. This quilt by Rachel Singh is simply gorgeous!

And last, but certainly not least, Elizabeth Hartman from Oh, Fransson! created a really fun pattern which you can get for free on the Janome website. This pattern is charm square friendly and who doesn't have piles of charm squares just sitting there waiting for the perfect project?! :-)

And just because I don't like posting without pictures, here is a snapshot of what I've been doing with my weekends. My sweetie and I are building a new summer cottage on Goat Island in the middle of the St-Lawrence River!

This is the view of Montreal from the boat on our way back home... Isn't it pretty? :-)

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.

  3. Lucky you! Your new cottage makes me a teensy bit jealous! I'll be doing that nested churn dash sometime this weekend, and then I saw the rail fence on Crazy Mom Quilts and will probably be doing that one.
