I really enjoyed quilting this top. I just let my imagination run wild and the thread flow.

Quilts of Valour Donation #3
This is the 3rd quilt that I have designed, pieced and free motion quilted to be donated to Quilts of Valour. I hope the recipient really enjoys it and knows that they are thought of and appreciated for their service. I used Cream Glide thread and Malachite pantograph.
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.
Quilts of Valour #10
I continue to offer my longarm quilting services to Quilts of Valour.
There are some beautiful asian prints in this quilt so I decided to use an E2E design called Haiku to complement them.
Quilts of Valour #9
I continue to volunteer to provide batting and donate my time to do the longarm quilting on quilt tops donated to Quilts of Valour. This is the 9th top that I have longarmed for them. I used Glide Khaki thread and e2e design Waterworld.
More Work for Quilts of Valour
I had a little fun in the solid black squares on this quilt . I love when I get a charity quilt with some quiet background space. Instead of doing a pantograph I get to use my imagination and do some custom quilting. Its a win/win for me and the charity.
This quilt top was a little too busy for custom quilting so I opted for a pantograph called Maple Grove.
More Quilts of Valour
I just finished 2 more quilts tops for Quilts of Valour. They give me a top and backing, I supply the batting, thread and then add the free motion quilting. On the Christmas charm square quilt I used Asian Maple and on the floral panel quilt I used Waterworld.
More Volunteer Quilting
Quilts of Valour put out a call for longarm volunteers to help complete some quilts before Christmas. I took this lovely yellow and green log cabin quilt and used a new pantograph called Maple Grove which features Canadian maple leafs. I hope the recipient loves their new quilt.
Volunteer Longarm Work
I just finished the longarm work on my 3rd top for Quilts of Valour. They give me a quilt top and I provide the batting and the longarm service. This quilt proved to be a bit of a challenge because of all the 3 dimensional bling on numerous blocks. I used an edge to edge design called Waterworld because it reminding me of birds flying around. I hope the recipient loves their new quilt.
Surprise Thank You
A few weeks ago I received this lovely thank you card from Lezley Zwaal the founder of Quilts of Valour Canada. It was a much appreciated and thoughtful gesture.
As a longarm volunteer for Quilts of Valour not only do I do the longarm work but I also supply the batting. In 2016 I have completed two donated quilt tops and I have another one coming to me to work on this weekend.
I have also designed, pieced and quilted a couple of quilts that I have donated
