Quilts of Valour Donation #3

QofV4
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.

Urban Windows

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.

Quilts of Valour #12

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.

Charity Quilt for Edmonton Quilt Guild

EDQG1
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.

Humboldt Strong

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.
