Welcome Blogathon Visitors!


Sew Sisters Blog


If it's your first time here, welcome! I am Dominique and I love to quilt.  I bet we have that in common!  To those of you who are regular readers, I don't have anything new to blog about, so I will be revisiting quilts I have shown before.  I hope you enjoy your visit.
 
I have been sewing most of my life, and quilting for about 10 years.  Over the years, I went from traditional to modern, but I still enjoy many different styles.
 
This fall colour quilt is very traditional but still one of my favourites:

Ma Saison Préférée (My Favourite Season) - 2009

These days, with a busy family schedule, I naturally gravitate towards simpler quilts with less pieces...

Girly Girl Quilt - 2013

...which are decidedly more modern.

Up, Up and Away - 2013 based on a quilt by Amanda Jean Nyberg in Sunday Morning Quilts
 
I have learned that minis are a satisfying ay to try new techniques without spending too much time...

Circles mini - 2013

and I dabble in improvised piecing.

Colourful Scraps Improv Quilt - 2014
 
I like to make small, pretty, useful items like luggage tags...


... lanyards...


...pillows...

 
... and pouches.
 
 
 
Oh, and I am a proud member of the Maritime Modern Quilt Guild, an awesome bunch of quilters.
 
I hope you enjoyed your visit!  If you have not done so, please go check out my fellow Atlantic Canadian bloggers.  You can find their blogs via Linda's (Scrapmaster) and Linda (Stitch Lines).

  7. I love those improv curves on that mini. I've been meaning to try more improv piecing but never seem to find time. Maybe that will be my quilty resolution for 2015.
