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.

Welcome baby James Andrew

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.

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.

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.

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.
