I was part of the Third Block Swap on Reddit recently, and just finished one of two polaroid quilts! This one is for my granddaughter. Participants in the swap were organized in groups of 12, and we each made 48 basic Polaroid blocks, fussy cutting novelty prints into the subjects of the photos and then framing them with white. We […]
Finally done! Front of quilt adapted from Simple Simon’s Peaches and Cream quilt pattern. I sized everything up to make 12″ blocks and added a strip of coins at the top to fix the aspect ratio and give me a nice Queen sized quilt for the happy couple. The bride picked this pattern and the basic fabric and colour way. […]
I created this piece in early 2021 for the SAQA Atlantic exhibition on the theme “Commotion”. It was accepted into the exhibition on April 30. 2021, and is the first piece of mine to be accepted into an exhibition. Inspired by the events of 2020, and the history of protest movements, Rise Palimpsest is a rough, raw piece that explores […]
I’m sending this to Studio Art Quilt Associates for their Spotlight auction at the 2021 virtual conference next month. It was a fun project to do and the tiniest thing I’ve ever quilted. Chiisai I, 2021 6″ x 8″This tiny abstract landscape is made of Japanese textiles. It is hand stitched with sashiko thread and embroidery floss in a style […]
It’s done! I quilted it with two thread colours: off white for the paler sections and dark blue for the darker and it worked out just fine.
Oh, yeah! It’s time to clean up those unfinished quilts! This was the lovely Thrive Quilt, which I worked on as part of Suzy Quilts’s QAL last fall. I made it a lap quilt — a little bigger than the listed baby quilt and smaller than the full size throw. I got the top all done except for one strip […]
It’s done! Basted on my design wall, and quilted with a combination of walking foot straight lines along the blue portions and free motion quilted squiggles of various descriptions in the low volume squares.
It’s all finished! First quilt of 2021 and the smallest and simplest quilt I’ve ever made. 49 5″ squares alternating between black and white (mostly Pen and Ink) and bright colours (all from Tula Pink’s All Stars), simply quilted.
I made this for my dear friend, Esther! It’s Edyta Sitar’s free Stargazer pattern, which I made for myself in blue and white, but it looks super pretty in purples! The back is red and blue because those are Esther’s other favourite colours! It’s my 11th finished quilt of 2020, and my second last one for the Christmas season!
This is a lap quilt for a dear gentleman who’s in a long term care home right now. It’s got strong, masculine colours, quite a bit of Nova Scotia tartan and a bonus panel of hockey skates on the back (Don played hockey into his 70s!) I added hearts to each side to help him remember that he is loved. […]
