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.

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.

Everly’s Baby Quilt

EverlyFront

Rosalie made this beautiful quilt for her granddaughter.  It is extra special because she used fabrics from Everly’s great-grandmother for the owl appliqué.

Rosalie gave me the quilt top and said I could do whatever I wanted with it. I started by adding trapunto to the owl, branch and leaves. Then I got out my favourite rulers and went crazy.

Instead of quilting the sashing and the border separately, I decided link them together with my quilting.

The plain backing really allows the free motion quilting to show.

Thank you Rosalie for allowing me to quilt this family heirloom.
