Houses Quilt

Check out this ADORABLE quilt from my client, Lorna. She is a teacher at Rumpled Quilt Skins shop in Okotoks, AB, and she just completed this example for her Grade 4 Class. It is an appliqué class that teaches students to get the most out of their machines' decorative stitches. The pattern is called "Welcome Home in Spring". It was designed by Shabby Fabrics, and it is available as a pattern or also as a kit at Rumpled Quilt Skins.

The whole time I was quilting this piece, I felt like I was playing a game of "I-Spy". There were so many little bells and whistles and special effects. See if you can find them all! Including, but not limited to: clouds stuffed with cotton balls, button doorknobs, crinkly trees (using a product called "Texture Magic"), 3D bird wings, metallic (shiny) bird bath, wooly sheep with suede feet and head, and more!

And yep, that's SNOW on the ground under this quilt. Winter has come to Alberta - we got 6" of snow yesterday!

My quilting is all free-motion, hand-guided on a longarm quilting machine.
