Grant’s Quilt

GrantQuilt

This is a quilt I made for our new grandson Grant Alexander.  His Mom saw a quilt on Pinterest that she loved and asked me to make one for the baby.  I think she did a great job picking the colours.  They all go together beautifully.  I used white Glide threat and a pantograph called Malachite.

Cameron’s 3rd Birthday Quilt

This is a very special quilt for a very special boy.  I used black Glide thread and the Bauhaus pantograph (because it reminded me of how a small boy drives his toy cars on the floor).  I don’t know if he is going to use the quilt on his bed or on the floor to play on, but it looks like he likes it.

Big Surprise

On a whim, and to push myself out of my comfort zone, I entered one of my quilts into the 2019 Edmonton Festival of Quilts show. I went today to volunteer and was so surprised to see that there was a 2nd place ribbon hanging on it. There were so many amazing and inspiring quilts at the show. I’ve got so many ideas for new projects swirling around in my head.

Shirley’s Double Irish Chain

ShirleyB1Our friend Shirley moved into her new house earlier this year and decided it was time to invest in herself and make a new quilt for her bedroom. She made this beautiful 93″ x 114″ red, green and cream double Irish chain. She gave me the freedom to quilt it anyway I wanted, so this is what I came up with. I used tidewater, cream and ruby thread from Glide.
