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.
Janice made this lovely quilt for her Grandson. I custom quilted a water/wave motif all over it.
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.
Shirley made this quilt top for her Dad. He loves fishing. I custom quilted it using Glide thread.
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.
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.
On a whim, and to push myself out of my comfort zone, I entered one of my quilts into the 2019 Edmonton Festival of Quilts show. I went today to volunteer and was so surprised to see that there was a 2nd place ribbon hanging on it. There were so many amazing and inspiring quilts at the show. I’ve got so many ideas for new projects swirling around in my head.
Our friend Shirley moved into her new house earlier this year and decided it was time to invest in herself and make a new quilt for her bedroom. She made this beautiful 93″ x 114″ red, green and cream double Irish chain. She gave me the freedom to quilt it anyway I wanted, so this is what I came up with. I used tidewater, cream and ruby thread from Glide.
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.
I love this quilt and it’s Canadiana feel. It was fully custom quilted with Glide thread and Hobbes 80/20 batting.
