Our guild makes baby and children’s quilts and donates them to a local women’s shelter. This is my latest donation. I wanted something colourful and cheerful. I hope the child who gets it feels comforted by it.

Quilts of Valour
I really enjoyed quilting this top. I just let my imagination run wild and the thread flow.
I had a lot of fun working on this art quilt of the beautiful Rosie-Roo, a friend’s Cane Carso. For the extensive thread painting I used a large assortment of Glide and some InvisaFil thread. I also incorporated a variegated thread on the forehead and torso.
Shirley made this colourful batik quilt for her sister. Her sister loves bright colours and picked all the fabrics herself. Shirley gave me free rein to quilt it as I please. I did a lot of dense quilting around the appliqué and quilted each border differently.
Liam’s Shark Quilt
Janice made this lovely quilt for her Grandson. I custom quilted a water/wave motif all over it.
EMQG Raffle Quilt
I volunteered to do the free motion quilting on the Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild’s 2021 Raffle Quilt. They gave me full creative control and let me do whatever I wanted. I decided to replicate, with stitching, the piecing from the bottom left corner in the top right corner. I used Ocean, Bright Blue, Mint, Hawaiian Blue, Baby Blue and Pistachio and Glide thread.
Here is a close up of some of the extensive ruler work and free motion quilting.
Carrie’s Reboot Quilt
This was an interesting quilt to work on. I used an edge-to-edge design called Rhythm around the Reboot logo and then custom quilted the logo.
The fireside backing really shows of the quilting.
Shirley made this quilt top for her Dad. He loves fishing. I custom quilted it using Glide thread.
SDDA National Challenge Cup
This is a quilt I made and donated to the Sporting Detection Dog Association’s 1st National Challenge Cup. I had fun doing all the custom quilting in the negative space.
Canine Coaching Donation
This is a quilt that I made and donated to Canine Coaching to give away at their June 2019 Sporting Detection Trial (SDDA) in Innisfail, Alberta. It was fully custom quilted.
Here are some close-up pictures of the free motion quilting.
