The Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild is supporting Lurana Shelter this year. The Shelter supports women and children who are victims of domestic violence. I made these two child size quilts to donate to this amazing charity. I used E2E design Marmalade.
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.
This is such a cute baby boy quilt. I used Cream Glide thread and E2E design Double Dutch.
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.
In June we added a beautiful new member to our extended family. Baby Edward joins his big sister, 2 year old Ava. I made him this soft blue quilt and did a bunch of custom quilting on it.
This quilt was made for sweet baby Chloe who was born on June 10th. It was fully custom quilted. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the finished quilt but Chloe’s Grandmother was kind enough to send me one.
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.
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.
I am pleased to share with you this lovely, gender neutral, baby quilt. It is rather unique in that it is actually a two sided quilt. Rather than custom quilting one side and having it look strange on the other side, I chose to do an all over design that would compliment both sides of the quilt. I used a design called Arrowheads.
Here is a close up look at the beautiful texture that the design created. I used two layers of batting (Hobbes 80/20 and a high loft polyester) to give lots of dimension.
And now the back. There is a lot of white space which really helps to see the quilting.
It is important to always label your quilt but this two sided design made that impossible. Having a label on one side would detract from the quilt itself. I saw somewhere online where a quilter stitched words into the binding instead of adding a label so that is what I did. I used a very subtle tone on tone so that it would almost disappear into the binding. It says “Made with love 2016 Grandma Debbie”.
Here are a few pictures of the quilt in the nursery:
I love this quilt. It is so perfect for a baby quilt. It is made with Drunkards path blocks cut from Bonnie and Camille fabric . It was fully custom quilted to enhance the design of the blocks.
