I love my husband, just saying….

Anyone who reads this blog regularly knows that my hubby is awesome.  So much so that in fact, I’m considering appealing to the Government  that he officially be given the title of PNP Hubby.  In case you are wondering what PNP means…well it means Pretty Near Perfect.  Wouldn’t you say that a hubby who loads…

It’s almost ACTUAL summer here on PEI.

And time for another block in my own personal first ever Wicked and Wonderful Legendary Modern Sampler Quilt. Just so you know, I’ve pretty much decided to blog about a sampler block on the 1st and 15th day (middle) of each month until December with an extra block thrown in once in a while so…

Pieced Backings – Yay or Nay?

Did you know that pieced backings are a characteristic feature on a modern quilt?  Well now you do….Me too! Yikes. I guess I have to figure this out, because over the last couple days, I spent an unacceptable amount of time muttering to myself and to anyone who would listen, “I hate pieced quilt backings!”…

Wicked and Wonderful

As many of you know, I have been evolving from making mostly traditional quilt blocks to building beautiful modern quilts over the last 4-5 years.  While I love this new aesthetic, there are some things about traditional quilt-making that I cannot say good-bye to.  In particular, I have a weakness for sampler quilts.  There is…

A Star Quilt is Born

Yes, those are my actual feet on my actual welcome mat. I love this mat because it’s been outside my actual door to welcome folks for many years, Now it’s there to welcome virtual friends. That makes me smile. Its AKA the day that I get to reveal the “Star” I’ve been working on for…

I’m playing “Catch-Up” Again.

Did you ever notice that I don’t often post pics of the gobs of things I have going on in my sewing room?  Well, that’s just wrong and I’m prepared to remedy that today.    Be warned this post is mostly pictures of projects that will someday be finished and awesome….even if right now they…

Transparency is Good in all Things.

There are so many things I love about quilts and more recently, quilt block design.  Seriously there are at least a gazillion amazing things about this art form that make me smile. So, it should come as no surprise that a technique that always piques my imagination is the notion of quilt transparency.  I’ve always been…

Home Sweet Home for FreckledFoxQuiltery

I’m  beside myself with excitement because today is the day I get to show you some photos of my beautiful new sewing space.  This was a huge renovation for us and while its done, its not really decorated  (or dusted) yet but I couldn’t wait any longer. First up the stairway we go.  FYI we…

Feedspot says my Blog is great

How cool is this! Two new badges for my blog… First is this one.  Honestly I am amazed and thrilled that my blog caught the eye of grandparents in Canada…I think it’s because my blog used to be called GRANNYcanQUILT.  My blog is no. 39 on this list. And Ta-Da, Officially I’m no. 41 on the…

I’m excited to be taking part in this Blog Hop with a bunch of wonderfully talented folks. Quilters who are new to blogging…

I love this

I was poking around on blogs I follow recently and found this awesome spot.  Seriously, you have to visit Granny Maud’s Girl.  I am smitten, infatuated and beguiled by so many things I found there.  Its a beautiful blog, with beautiful fotos, and OMG my heart skipped a beat or two, a time or two when…
