Proud to be a Canadian Quilter

Welcome to Sew Fresh Quilts!
My name is Lorna McMahon - a proud Canadian Quilting Blogger!

I live on a 50 acre farm in rural Ontario.  It's beautiful country, but secluded and isolated.
You can read more about me and my world here.


But thanks to the internet and quilt blogging, I have made many wonderful and treasured friends from all over the world.  These friends cheer me up and cheer me on.  They are my inspiration and.......

I can't imagine my life now without the support of the online quilting community!

My quilting journey began when I designed this quilt - Krazy Katz - for my daughter, Erin.

Since then it has been a non-stop whirlwind of fabric, friends, design, thread, blogging and batting.  Oh.  And coffee.  I like coffee.

Things have changed.  But my love of quilting and my list of friends just keeps on growing!



I started out with my Little Janome 2030QDC.  He's a great little machine, but very limited on throat space with only 6.5" between needle and base.  However, pair him up with some of Superior Threads' Fantastico thread and a Topstitch needle, and he is the master of free motion quilting.

Kona Fox Kits

Aunt Elna

This January, I purchased an Elna Excellence 760.  Affectionately known as Aunt Elna, this machine was a worthy investment.  She offers 11" from needle to the body and has reduced my frustration when quilting large quilts.  With all that space, she is a fine machine for spiral quilting, but as the queen of the walking foot, she really enjoys performing this organic wavy line quilting.

Fox & Friends

Christmas Place Mats

There have been a lot of quilts made on these two machines.  Please take a look at my quilt gallery found under my banner at the top of the blog.  Here all my quilts are pictured, with links to the posts for each quilt I have made.  Many of these designs are offered as PDF patterns for sale in my Etsy shop.

The Butterfly Quilt


Cuddly, cozy, fun and bright - The Butterfly Quilt!  I am so happy with this finish!


Last week a few photos of my Butterfly quilt blocks were shown in this post.  I said, "I am already eager to start on another Butterfly Quilt using only solids!  Or maybe using a single fabric collection....."  But now I am already onto a completely new design idea using those solids instead.


These photos show the quilting detail - organic wavy line quilting.  This quilting style gives the feeling of movement.  The butterflies seem to be floating on a breeze!


I was recently at my LQS and purchased this fun and lovely polka dot minky for backing.  Seemed so suited to The Butterfly Quilt.  And it's so soft and cuddly!


This bright pink polka dot was discovered in my stash while searching for fabrics to use in the blocks.  There was a large piece.  Enough to use in a couple of blocks and to use as the binding.


This large throw quilt, which finished at approximately 56" x 60", is now for sale in my Etsy shop.  And The Butterfly Quilt pattern is available from both my Craftsy pattern store here and my little Etsy shop here!

All Quilts for Sale and PDF Patterns are marked down and priced to sell for a limited time.  Please pop into my shop and have a look around!  Click here.



This quilt finish was the 17th use of my 100 labels ordered from
