Our new neighbours recently had their first baby. A sweet little girl named Bristol. I made this quilt for her. I used edge-to-edge design Animal Crackers and white Glide thread
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).
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.
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.
Here is a close up of the FMQ.
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.
This quilt has 365 blocks and was made as part of Kathryn Kerr’s 365 Challenge Sample Quilt. This is one of those quilts where the blocks are the start not the quilting. I just used a simple e2e design called Deco Vine and some simple custom quilting in the four corner blocks and the centre medallion.
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 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.
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.
This is Iris’ strip quilt made out of beautiful Asian fabrics. She chose Chrissy pantograph and I used Lt. Olive Glide thread.
