These photos are soooo 2017 ... OK, I just realized I hadn't posted my little Canadiana pouch and bucket set before Christmas as intended, and in order to keep myself on track, I leave photos on my computer desktop until I have done what I planned to do with them and today I'm cleaning things… Continue reading Canadiana
How would you like that quilted?
Some of my customers who bring or send me projects to quilt ask me to just "do my thing", be creative, and stitch whichever designs I think will look good. These people get what I like to call "Ann Quilting" 🙂 Some have decided ahead of time that they just want a simple edge to… Continue reading How would you like that quilted?
Whimsical Floral Tote Bag
I made this bag using various techniques and ideas learned from patterns and tutorials I've been using, and I combined them to make a bag of my own design. I wanted to end up with something not too large, but large enough! I love the size and shape of it. I also wanted to make… Continue reading Whimsical Floral Tote Bag
Pfaff QE 4.2 Stitch Booklet
I spent some time this weekend checking out all the cool stitching patterns available on my sewing machine. I rarely use the special features on my machine but I wanted to see the possibilities for embellishments now that I am working on some smaller things like pouches and bags, so I found some interesting things!… Continue reading Pfaff QE 4.2 Stitch Booklet
Youtube Channel Change
FOR MY YOUTUBE SUBSCRIBERS: I'm so sorry for this inconvenience, but in the effort to align all of my social media connections for Ann Walsh Quilting, I had to move my videos to the new channel, which means that anyone who subscribed to my Youtube channel in the past will need to re-subscribe now in… Continue reading Youtube Channel Change
Piecing, piecing, piecing ... ARGGGH! That's how I felt making this quilt! I was determined to try it and I do love the bright colors, but wow it took a lot of hours to get it all pieced together. I started the actual quilting one morning and only worked until around noon, but it then… Continue reading Starburst Batiks
Cascading Leaves Quilt
The big quilt is done and it looks so cool with the coordinating quilted pillow cover! After one washing the leaf edges are getting nice and scrappy for that comfy shabby chic kind of look (I'm sure there's a better term for it, but that works for me!) I had to resort to a different… Continue reading Cascading Leaves Quilt
With Glowing Hearts
I received a special order from a previous customer for a Canada themed quilt, and with this being our country's 150th birthday celebration, it was a good opportunity to add some extra touches to the quilt already made cute by the "With Glowing Hearts" fabric line itself. The piecing design was simple - an idea… Continue reading With Glowing Hearts
Wild Quilting Stitching Videos
I stitched this green sampler in parts so I could make videos showing my process along the way, so if you're interested in watching the action, I've posted the links to each step in order below. After doing a few in a row like this, I'm pretty sick of hearing the music that once sounded… Continue reading Wild Quilting Stitching Videos
I just finished this bright and cheerful quilt made with lovely batiks and offering a nice break from the blah of winter 🙂 I got the idea from a quilt that Kimberley Einmo was doing in an online class so I adapted it to my own preferences (i.e. a lot less piecing, different quilting style… Continue reading Hello Sunshine!
