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.

More Volunteer Quilting

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.
