Our 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.
Rosalie made this beauty for her grand-daughter. When I saw it, it just reminded me of the colours of spring. I used white glide thread and E2E design Swirl ‘N Twirl
Rosalie made this beautiful quilt for her son and daughter-in-law. They both share a love of skulls and wanted a skull theme for the quilting. As luck would have it, I found a neat skull themed pantograph called Sugar Skulls and they loved it.
This is a quilt that I made and then donated to The Little Nose that Knows to use as a give-away at their April 27-28, Sporting Detection Dog Association (SDDA) trial. It is 60×77″ and fully custom quilted so that each “window” is unique. I think the quilting adds a lot of interest and texture. I hope whoever wins it, loves it as much as I do.
I love this quilt and it’s Canadiana feel. It was fully custom quilted with Glide thread and Hobbes 80/20 batting.
Here is another quilt top that I volunteered to do the FMQ. I used an e2e design called Malachite because I think it complements the piece. Another reason I chose this designs because bargellos are made up of many small pieces and I wanted a design that has stitching close together to catch as many seams as possible.
I love this quilt that was pieced by members of my guild. I’m sure some child will be thrilled to receive it. I used edge to edge design Double dutch and I think it works perfectly with the piecing.
