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.

Big Surprise

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.

Shirley’s Double Irish Chain

ShirleyB1Our 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.

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.

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.
