Quilts of Valour #10

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.

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.

More Work for Quilts of Valour

I had a little fun in the solid black squares on this quilt .  I love when I get a charity quilt with some quiet background space.  Instead of doing a pantograph I get to use my imagination and do some custom quilting.  Its a win/win for me and the charity.

This quilt top was a little too busy for custom quilting so I opted for a pantograph called Maple Grove.

More Volunteer Quilting

Quilts of Valour put out a call for longarm volunteers to help complete some quilts before Christmas.  I took this lovely yellow and green log cabin quilt and used a new pantograph called Maple Grove which features Canadian maple leafs.  I hope the recipient loves their new quilt.

Volunteer Longarm Work

I just finished the longarm work on my 3rd top for Quilts of Valour.  They give me a quilt top and I provide the batting and the longarm service.  This quilt proved to be a bit of a challenge because of all the 3 dimensional bling on numerous blocks.  I used  an edge to edge design called Waterworld because it reminding me of birds flying around.  I hope the recipient loves their new quilt.

Surprise Thank You

A few weeks ago I received this lovely thank you card from Lezley Zwaal the founder of Quilts of Valour Canada.  It was a much appreciated and thoughtful gesture.

As a longarm volunteer for Quilts of Valour not only do I do the longarm work but I also supply the batting.  In 2016 I have  completed two donated quilt tops and I have another one coming to me to work on this weekend.
