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.

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.
Sandi’s Charity Quilt
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.
Lurana Shelter Quilts
The Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild is supporting Lurana Shelter this year. The Shelter supports women and children who are victims of domestic violence. I made these two child size quilts to donate to this amazing charity. I used E2E design Marmalade.
Quilts for Broncos
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.

This is another quilt top that was pieced by members of the Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild. I chose Asian maple for this quilt to help balance all the squares and straight lines.
