Quilts of Valour #10

I continue to offer my longarm quilting services to Quilts of Valour.

There are some beautiful asian prints in this quilt so I decided to use an E2E design called Haiku to complement them.


Welcome baby James Andrew


I used E2E design “Double Dutch” and white glide thread.  This quilt is unique in that it is double sided so I needed to choose a free motion quilt design that would work with both sides.



Here is a close up of the FMQ.



Big Surprise


For the first time, Klondike Days (our annual summer exhibition) featured a Makers Exhibition to showcase and celebrate local makers, creators, artists and producers.  On a whim, I decided to enter my Bridges of Madison County quilt into the Longarm Quilting category.  Unfortunately I was so busy that I completely forgot to go and see the exhibit before it closed.  I went this week to pick up my quilt and was shocked to see that it had a first place ribbon on it.  The judges comments were “Superb.  Small pucker on backing but otherwise excellent”.


Alex’s Preppy the Whale

I love this pattern (Preppy the Whale by Elizabeth Hartman).  It is just perfect for a baby quilt.  Alex commissioned me to make this quilt for friends of his who have a baby girl on the way.  I used E2E design Feathers with a twist, it reminds me of a whale swimming, and Glide’s Cool Grey thread.
