I was asked by the Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Canada if I would be willing to make a quilt that they could raffle off at their National Specialty Show in Calgary at the end of the month. This is what I made for them. I hope that they are able to raise a few dollars for their club. Of course I had to include a picture of my Bernese Mountain Dog Spirit with the quilt.
I just finished this today. The top was made by a member of the Edmonton and District Quilt Guild for one of their sponsored charities. I used edge to edge design Malachite and Glide thread (Linen).
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.
I love this quilt that was pieced by members of my guild. I’m sure some child will be thrilled to receive it. I used edge to edge design Double dutch and I think it works perfectly with the piecing.
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.
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.
I volunteered to do the longarm quilting on this charity quilt made by members of the Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild.
Here is a close-up of each of the nine blocks.
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.
This is another quilt top that was pieced by members of the Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild. I chose Asian maple for this quilt to help balance all the squares and straight lines.
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.
