This quilt was made by my friend Leila, she embroidered the blocks, pieced the quilt and had me quilt it for her. I added crosshatching and lots of feathers.
this is another quilt by Leila, she had me quilt it with a Butterfly pantograph.
Terri’s quilt has a very special story. Her daughter started this quilt as a teenager and then life got busy for her and it ended up as an unfinished project. Terri decided to finish it and give it to her daughter at her bridal shower. I quilted it for Terri using a pantograph called Shasta.
Alva’s Colourful Cranes, there are 98 paper pieced cranes in this quilt. Alva’s use of colour always amazes and inspires me. (I promise Alva I will jump out of my comfort zone and use real reds one day!) We chose a Pantograph called Bayside which gives this quilt added movement but doesn’t distract from the piecing.
Alva made this quilt for her granddaughter Kara. The pattern is called Wind Blown Blossoms and was found in Quilt Maker Magazine Spring 2010, it is a total deviation from the quilt in the Magazine but these colours are so Alva. Alva chose a Pantograph called Vortex for this one which really complements it.
Summer Gypsy is a quilt I made a couple of years ago for Erik’s daughter Megan. I wish the colour was more true in the picture, I’m going to try to get better shots of it today. It was made with Carrie Nelsons Pattern Summer Wind and Gypsy Rose Fabric by Fig Tree Quilts.
Elizabeth will be given to her owner Shauna after this show. This quilt is a wedding gift that my daughter Sarah asked me to make for her very dear and close friend. Shauna has been patiently waiting for her quilt. They were married last summer. Elizabeth is another Carrie Nelson pattern (Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co) and the fabric is Rouenneries by French General.
Finally, Katie has long awaited her quilt! (she is in pink) Sunday night I’m sure this quilt will be on her bed.
Opening Day is a pattern by Carrie Nelson (Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co) and the Fabric is Aster Manor by 3 sisters. Katie chose the fabric and pattern.
Hmm kinda looks like I’m a Carrie Nelson fan and I’m love Moda fabrics!
