Sew Sisters Blogathon!

Pin ItSewSistersQuiltShop


For those of you visiting blogs from the Maritimes today, I'm Jeanette and have been blogging here for about 6 years.  It started off as a place to share my paper crafts, but then I returned to my first love of fabric around 4 years ago.  Now, I'm busy doing custom sewing orders and craft fairs and I love it!  The best one is coming up this weekend in Halifax at the St. Mary's Boat Club, you can check it out at ECMC.

Yesterday, I finished up some more craft fair sewing- these cute drawstring bags.





This year, I've made only a few quilts.  They now live in Cape Breton, and belong to a photographer, which means I get to see them in action on her family photo shoots!


 
 
This one, I made with my Mom as a Christmas gift to my nephew.
 
 
 
This really cute toadstool quilt was for a friend who had a spring baby.  She had a girl, but at the time I made it neutral for either a girl or a boy!
 

Almost forgot to show these cute patchwork zippered pouches I made yesterday too-



Have fun visiting all the Canadian Bloggers- I "met" a lot of new people when I was host last year and I love seeing everyone's beautiful quilting/sewing.  Thanks for visiting!

Bonjour Jeanette , I just landed on your site via the Blogathon, but I have been here before, including recently when a mutual friend talked about you on Facebook. I will let you guess who that is. I love your bags, quilts and quilty things. You have a great eye for colour!
