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.
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.
I was deeply affected by the loss of so many people as a result of the Humboldt bus crash. The Saskatoon Modern Quilt Guild put out a call to other guilds across Canada asking quilters to make and donate quilts to give to people who had been directly affected by the crash. They asked for 200 quilts. I knew I wanted to help. Then I found out that one of the victims was member of a friend’s extended family. Instead of making a generic quilt for the group, I decided to make an quilt dedicated to the family who lost their son. I hope that it will provide some comfort to them.
The Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild got together for a sew day and made 9 quilt tops for the Bronco team survivors and family members affected by the horrible bus crash. I volunteered my longarm services. I used E2E design Malachite and Glide thread.
I volunteered to do the longarm quilting on this charity quilt made by members of the Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild.
Here is a close-up of each of the nine blocks.
