Lorna's Flourishes

This is a class sample for Lorna @ Rumpled Quilt Skins in Okotoks, AB. It's called Scan N Cut Flourishes. So pretty!

Leigh's Cuddly Quilt

This pretty project was made for a 93-year-old friend. Leigh chose to back it with Fireside (a kind of fuzzy, fleecy fabric), which will make it work and cozy. It's lovely!

Last Quilts of 2019

Please pardon the tardiness of these last several posts.  I was so busy quilting before Christmas, that I let my blog get woefully out of date, and I'm just now attempting to get it caught back up!

These were the last two quilts of 2019. They are little cuties from a dear friend in Nebraska. I was able to complete them and deliver them to her when we went to visit family between Christmas and New Year.

That makes 146 quilts on my longarm in 2019. A total of 616 since getting my longarm quilting machine in August 2015. The fun continues!

Darlene's Gems

The paper piecing in these quilt blocks create a STUNNING effect. It literally looks like you're looking at gemstones. It's gorgeous!

Very excited to complete this quilt - the last with a pre-Christmas deadline. Darlene got it back in her hands by Dec 20th. 5 days to spare!

Julie's Elephants

This pretty panel-quilt came from a new client, Julie. She made it for her daughter. I applied some outlining around the elephant and added a bit of radiating sunbeams in quilting, in the background around the elephant. I did mostly ruler work in the pieced borders. Such a striking piece.

Pair from Ingrid

A pretty pair from Dr. Ingrid. I had fun giving them edge-to-edge quilting, and also applying my "Effortless Binding", so that they were ready for Ingrid to gift away when I gave them back to her.

Linda's Through The Woods

I've gotten to quilt a few of these lovely "Through The Woods" quilts, which was taught as a class at Rumpled Quilt Skins in Okotoks, AB. Each one is different - colors, patterns, borders, etc. And likewise I try make the quilting different on each one. Linda requested snowflakes in the borders, which was a fun assignment. I think it turned out well!

Linda's BAMBI

This is sampler quilt was a treat for me to work with. Such cheery colors!
