Welcome baby James Andrew

I used E2E design “Double Dutch” and white glide thread.  This quilt is unique in that it is double sided so I needed to choose a free motion quilt design that would work with both sides.

Alex’s Preppy the Whale

I love this pattern (Preppy the Whale by Elizabeth Hartman).  It is just perfect for a baby quilt.  Alex commissioned me to make this quilt for friends of his who have a baby girl on the way.  I used E2E design Feathers with a twist, it reminds me of a whale swimming, and Glide’s Cool Grey thread.

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.
