I started laying out my Bright Stripes quilt on the weekend. It is so much fun, and it makes me so happy to look at it. I am not sure why I did not make it sooner. Check out what others have on their design walls at Patchwork Times.

Happy Mother's Day! My husband and children spoiled me today. My son decided yesterday that he wanted to buy me fabric so we went to one of our favourite quilts stores. I got to pick out some fabric and then my husband paid for it. When I got it today, I had a surprise. They had also picked out a fat quarter bundle and some thread without me knowing.
The best part of today was being with them. They are wonderful and loving and kind.
P.S. The winner of my giveaway is Angela D. It was wonderful to read and hear about all your dreams. I hope they come true!

Hello everyone, and welcome to my Sew Mama Sew Giveaway! My name is Michelle aka Dresden Quilter. I have been quilting for over 20 years. I also have been knitting, and crocheting for longer. A few years ago I learned how to do red work and I love that as well. Last year, I learned how to knit socks and I have grown a bit of an addiction to them. Yarn and fabric stores are both my favourites and can both be quite expensive! The people I love are my muses. I love to make things for the ones I care about. Presently, I am working on a pair of socks for my sister, a redwork table runner for myself, a quilt for my daughter, and a baby quilt for a friend.
For my giveaway I am giving away this charm pack of 42 squares of Dream On.
To enter, all you need to do is answer this question : If you could realize one dream, what would it be?
My dream would be to own a Janome Horizon, and more simply for people to be nicer to each other.
The winner will be chosen randomly and you must have a way for me to contact you. I am happy to ship internationally, from the beautiful country called Canada! I will leave the giveaway open until May 10 at 8:00 PM Eastern DST. Good luck with this and the other giveaways at Sew Mama Sew!

I have had this quilt kit for years, and it never seemed the right time to make it. I have some baby quilts that need to be made, and now seemed like the right time to finally do it. I had my own Friday night sew-in and started the cutting for it.
I used Thangles for the triangles. The sewing for them went very fast and I am looking forward to putting it together on my design wall. I did not do any rotary cutting last night as I have learned Saturdays can be very exciting for hockey fans ; especially Leafs fans now that they are in the playoffs.

I have the first two rows of the Twister quilt done. I like it more than I thought would. I am finding the cutting to be a bit finicky. I have to be very careful not to cut into the next twister blade. My daughter will be happy once this quilt is done. This started life as a surprise Moda stash bag and I was so happy to find a layer cake of Blush. This will be another one that I won't want to give away, but luckily it won't be going to far and maybe if I am really lucky I will get to use it sometimes.
