I was asked by the Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Canada if I would be willing to make a quilt that they could raffle off at their National Specialty Show in Calgary at the end of the month. This is what I made for them. I hope that they are able to raise a few dollars for their club. Of course I had to include a picture of my Bernese Mountain Dog Spirit with the quilt.
I just finished this today. The top was made by a member of the Edmonton and District Quilt Guild for one of their sponsored charities. I used edge to edge design Malachite and Glide thread (Linen).
For 2021, members of The Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild are making and donating quilts to Lurana Shelter. They offer safe refuge and life changing services to women and children who are victims of domestic violence in our community.
Sandi made this quilt top and I provided the backing and the free motion quilting. I used E2E design Malachite and Glide thread.
This quilt was made to donate to a wonderful organization called Blankets of Love. They are a charitable organization whose mission is to provide quilts to patients who are in hospital for the treatment of mental illness. We all know that 2020 has been a very difficult year for everyone but it has been particularly difficult for people with mental illnesses. It was quilted with Cream Glide thread using E2E design Marmalade.
This is the 3rd quilt that I have designed, pieced and free motion quilted to be donated to Quilts of Valour. I hope the recipient really enjoys it and knows that they are thought of and appreciated for their service. I used Cream Glide thread and Malachite pantograph.
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.
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.
I was asked by the Edmonton and District Quilt Guild to do the free motion quilting on one of their charity quilts. Instead of using an edge to edge design I decided to do a little custom quilting: feathers in the border and each block quilted uniquely.
Here is the back showing some of the FMQ.
