Blogathon Canada in Ontario!


Hello and welcome to all of you who are hopping along on Blogathon Canada. Thank you for stopping by.
Sew Sisters Blog


I'm Carol and I live in Toronto - moved hear three years ago from India. I taught myself to quilt about 4 years ago while I still lived in India - even quit my full time job at an arts organization to do it! :) I remember going to my director and saying.. I think I need to move on... maybe teach... but I really feel like I want to touch fabric all the time.. and I see patterns every time I close my eyes... and I think I need to be a quilter! He didn't really know what to say but wished me luck and now here I am!

Here's some of my current W.I.Ps


And finishes


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll visit again!
Enjoy the Blogathon!

Carpenter's Star - WIP

I bought Aspen Frost by Basic Grey for Moda last Christmas and wanted to make a Carpenter's Star wall hanging for our home. I drew up the pattern, figured everything out and for some reason didn't actually sew anything! Then of course once the season passes it's hard to motivate myself to sew for Christmas. This year I decided I would get this done! Aspen Frost is a beautiful collection. I wish I had more of this fabric. It's gorgeous.

I used a Charm Pack and yardage from the line.

Color Palette

I was putting together some pictures for my other blog and I really liked the colors of these pictures together.


So I went to the Palette Builder on the Play Crafts Blog and got myself a palette.

Quilting by the Lake!

I would have if it wasn't so cold and wet! :) But I took some pictures with my hexie quilt by the water. We went up to a cottage with some friends earlier this month and I took some sewing up. It was wonderful to sit by a wood fire stove and sew with good friends and wine. :) Had a lovely time. If we go up again I want to have some finished quilts to photograph.
