Learning to sew

I am teaching my daughter to sew. We are making a quilt using up my fabric scraps. The goal here is to enjoy the process and learn how to sew. Its a variation of the log cabin design. So far we have made three blocks of the 30 required to complete the quilt and with the  expected snow storm I am sure we will be making many more in the next few days.

Happy New Year

we had snow early this week and freezing temperatures. Its cold and colourless outside. so I have made two cushions that will certainly add colour and a little warmth to my sofa. the fabric is from Joann's by Jules and Coco in speckles orange, zig-zag and pink floral. I used a fun pompom trim for the rectangular accent cushion and piping for the large square cushion
