2012-16 Pine Tree Runner

This table runner was made of some leftover blocks.  I tried to unite these odd sized blocks by creating a grey snowdrift.  I decided to orient the trees so that people on both sides of our harvest table see the trees oriented upright.  It is machine quilted with a pine tree pattern.

2017-15 Star Trellis

This quilt is made from traditional 30’s prints, which reflect the soft colours of this design.  It was quilted in a sweet rose digital design by Kim Diamond.

Star Trellis won Grand Champion, Machine Quilting at the 2017 Drayton Fair.

2017-14 Wonky Log Cabin

Here is another cozy quilt which I finished hand quilting during the summer of 2017.  it sure feels good to have these projects finished and off my To Do list.   This quilt had been languishing in the half-done pile for a long time.  Once I got at it, it did not take too much time to finish up the last two rows of blocks.  Because it has both flannel fabric on top and flannel fabric as backing it is really soft and cozy.  The batting, a thin cotton batting adds to the old-fashioned feel of the quilt.  Flannel does not hold its shape as well as regular quilting fabrics, but it is definitely a snuggle quilt.  I quite like the feel and warmth of this lovely little quilt.
