My great Aunt Olga asked me to make her a quilt. Her favourite colour is purple. This was so much fun to put together – and I got to use up some of my fabric collection also! It’s a Schnibbles pattern. I quilted it using the Bumpity pantograph in a white thread.
Dan wanted a masculine pantograph design for this quilt. I think we nailed it with “bluster” which now happens to be one of my favourite to quilt and use on quilts. The golden thread works so well with the fabrics also. Sharing this post with these linky parties.
This lovely modern quilt was a pleasure to longarm for my client, Jean. Since there were so many hard lines in the piecing of the quilt top we decided to go with a modern swirl pantograph titled “Bubbles” to soften the look of the quilt using a white thread colour. Enjoy the photos.
A client approached me to restore a quilt her grandmother had made her many years ago. Amazingly the top was intact but the binding was very much coming apart. It came apart very easily. As the original batting was an old polyester and since the quilt had been washed so many times over the years… Read More
My grandparents are my biggest fans when it comes to my quilting. I made the king-sized “Christmas Beast” quilt for my parents (their daughter) and every time we are all at my parents house my grandfather looks at it and talks about how great he thinks it is. How could I not want to make… Read More
I quilted this beauty for a client whose mother-in-law appliqued the ladies it by hand. The pieces were coming up so we decided to quilt over them to tack them down better. I used white thread so that it blends in very well and for a distance you cannot see the threads at all. Here… Read More
I finally finished the queen-sized quilt I have been wanting to make for my daughter. My son got one when he was two but I didn’t have just the right one in mind for my daughter until a girlfriend and I went to a quilt show and I found the most adorable jelly roll of… Read More
I haven’t had the mindset or the arm strength to finish any projects but here is what I’m playing with this week craft-wise. I wasn’t really looking for a new project but I found this really fun pattern that uses two contrasting variegated yarn colours to make a scarf. This yarn is Bernat Mosaic. I’m… Read More
I had a marathon quilting session on the Easter weekend (April 3-6). I successfully long-arm quilted two queen-size quilts and one king-size quilt in 2.5 very long days. There was a push for me to finish these all as we were visiting my mother-in-law who has a king-sized frame (mine only holds up to a… Read More
I volunteer my longarm quilting services for Project RED, an organization that makes quilts which are then given to local agencies such as Grand River Hospital Pediatrics and Children’s Aid, as well as those in need around the world. This time I received two panels to make up. It was great practice for my new pantograph… Read More
