Isabelle's Spring Beauty

This is a quilt from customer Isabelle which will be an amazing gift for her elderly aunt. The wonderful spring colors and beautiful floral motifs cryed out custom quilting.  A choice of lite custom for this lovely quilt, with all freehand quilting and no ruler work or outlining.

Large Bali Blocks

I just finished quilting 2 of these lovely quilts - both exactly the same.   A customer "Vange" received this gorgeous fabric from her daughter and neice who just came back from a trip to Bali.  Vange did a great job compiling these beautiful fabrics into a  wonderful quilt for each of the ladies.

These large quilts - 90" x 100", were quilted with an allover freehand design.  Warm & Natural batting was used as well as 100% cotton thread "Tutti" by Wonderfil.

"Harvest Home" - Going a long way from home!

This gorgeous quilt once finished will be traveling a long way, to Teslin, Yukon.

Made by Brenda from High River for her friend Jay who lives up in the Yukon and whom I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting.

Brenda and Jay, while Jay was visiting both fell in love with this quilt.  They each purchased the kit at the Quilting Bee shop in Olds, Alberta (one of Brenda's all time favorite hang outs). Jay knowing that Brenda was a more experienced quilter and seeing some of her previous projects commissioned her to compile this quilt for her.  Both Jay and Brenda found my site and saw some of my quilting, contacted me and below are photos of the finished quilt. Brenda did an awesome job piecing this large 100" x 100" bed quilt and I was happy with the quilting results.  I have no doubt Jay will be pleased.

Jay chose my freehand leaves for the quilting pattern - we used W/Natural batting and 100% cotton thread (Tutti) by Wonderfil.

Hawaiian Baby Quilt from "First Time Quilter - Natalie"

This is a lovely first quilt made by new customer Natalie.  Natalie had help from friend Lisa making this quilt for Nat's sister's new baby.  She was on a vacation in Hawaii when she picked up most of these adorable fabrics - I love love love the dolor combination and the backing is so cute. Great job ladies!

Natalie wanted swirls and stars for the quilting hence the quilting design.  Freehand quilting using 100% cotton batting and 100% cotton thread (Tutti) by Wonderfil.

Lovely Log Cabin by Lyn

A new customer Lyn made this beautiful log cabin quilt for her son. Lyn is a fairly new quilter but you'd never know it - she did an awesome job piecing this very large quilt. Lyn mentioned this was a class at "Rumplequiltskins" in Okotoks.  Great job Lyn!

I quilted it with an allover freehand spiky swirl design using W/N batting and 100% cotton variegated thread (Tutti) by Wonderfil.

Brady's 1st Birthday Quilt

My dear friend and quilter Doris made this adorable quilt for her Grandson Brady who just turned 1 year old.  I love these soft fun flannel panels (how cute are those faces).  With a few borders, friend Max to do some embroidery, and a little quilting you have an awesome treasure for little Brady.

I did a bit of custom quilting on this just because it had a lot of open space and I wanted to spend more time with these fun animals. Doris was happy with the way it turned out and promised to get some photos of Brady and his special quilt Grandma Doris made.

Mary's Quilts

These are two of the quilts I just finished up for Mary.  Both were freehand using Legacy Eco batting and variegated thread by Wonderfil.

"Summer Porch" by Amy

Amy is a new customer and a young up and coming quilter.  If I remember correctly Amy started this lovely quilt before moving here to Calgary from High Level in the north of Alberta. With help from a local quilt store Amy began her quilt but had to put it away because of the major move to Calgary.  Once settled Amy brought out her "Summer Porch" quilt, finished the piecing and found me to help with the quilting of this beauty. 

I did an allover freehand swirl, we used the new Legacy Eco batting and a variegated thread by Wonderfil.

Scrappy Log Cabin - Freehand Quilting

This bright and cheery quilt was made by customer and lovely friend "Rose".  Rose did a grand job piecing all these lovely scraps into another wonderful work of art. The black sashings really compliment and make her log cabin blocks pop.

I did an allover freehand soft swirl, used Legacy 70/30 Eco batting and a variegated thread by Wonderfil.

Tropical Breeze

This beautiful batik quilt was designed by Kat from "Next Step Quilt Designs" and will be coming out as a "block of the month". Because of the ocean theme I quilted Tropical Breeze using a pantograph called" Whirlpool" and a variegated thread by Wonderfil.
