Cameron’s 3rd Birthday Quilt

CamPixel

This is a very special quilt for a very special boy.  I used black Glide thread and the Bauhaus pantograph (because it reminded me of how a small boy drives his toy cars on the floor).  I don’t know if he is going to use the quilt on his bed or on the floor to play on, but it looks like he likes it.

Quilts of Valour #12

Here is another quilt top that I volunteered to do the FMQ.  I used an e2e design called Malachite because I think it complements the piece.  Another reason I chose this designs because bargellos are made up of many small pieces and I wanted a design that has stitching close together to catch as many seams as possible.

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.
