I volunteered to do the free motion quilting for members of my quilt guild who made a quilt top for Our Lady of Grace. I recently completed these two quilts.
Ioleen pieced this quilt from blocks that were donated by guild members. She gave me the freedom to quilt it however I wanted to. As usual, once I get going on the longarm I can’t stop myself. Hopefully she will like it.
She also gave me this one to quilt. It was a very busy quilt with no open background so there was no point doing any extensive FMQ on it. I chose Swirl ‘n Twirl to accent the fabric.
Our guild is collecting baby quilts for Our Lady of Grace. The quilts will go to pregnant or parenting teens. I’ve made a boy and girl’s version. I went a little overboard with the quilting, what else is new, but hopefully whoever gets them will like them.
They look so cute together:
Last fall I was very lucky and won a fat quarter bundle from Sew Sister’s Blogathon Canada. It was Northcott’s Stonehenge OH CANADA line. I knew immediately that I would use the fabric to make a quilt for Quilts of Valour.
There was a ton of ruler work on this quilt. My hand ached from holding the ruler too firmly.
I added an extra 1/4 inch red flange under the binding to give the quilt a little extra border.
