Shirley made this colourful batik quilt for her sister. Her sister loves bright colours and picked all the fabrics herself. Shirley gave me free rein to quilt it as I please. I did a lot of dense quilting around the appliqué and quilted each border differently.
Janice made this lovely quilt for her Grandson. I custom quilted a water/wave motif all over it.
This is a quilt I made and donated to the Sporting Detection Dog Association’s 1st National Challenge Cup. I had fun doing all the custom quilting in the negative space.
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.
This is a quilt that I made and donated to Canine Coaching to give away at their June 2019 Sporting Detection Trial (SDDA) in Innisfail, Alberta. It was fully custom quilted.
Here are some close-up pictures of the free motion quilting.
On a whim, and to push myself out of my comfort zone, I entered one of my quilts into the 2019 Edmonton Festival of Quilts show. I went today to volunteer and was so surprised to see that there was a 2nd place ribbon hanging on it. There were so many amazing and inspiring quilts at the show. I’ve got so many ideas for new projects swirling around in my head.
Our friend Shirley moved into her new house earlier this year and decided it was time to invest in herself and make a new quilt for her bedroom. She made this beautiful 93″ x 114″ red, green and cream double Irish chain. She gave me the freedom to quilt it anyway I wanted, so this is what I came up with. I used tidewater, cream and ruby thread from Glide.
This is a quilt that I made and then donated to The Little Nose that Knows to use as a give-away at their April 27-28, Sporting Detection Dog Association (SDDA) trial. It is 60×77″ and fully custom quilted so that each “window” is unique. I think the quilting adds a lot of interest and texture. I hope whoever wins it, loves it as much as I do.
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.
In June we added a beautiful new member to our extended family. Baby Edward joins his big sister, 2 year old Ava. I made him this soft blue quilt and did a bunch of custom quilting on it.
