2017-26: Xmas Tree Wall Hanging

This Christmas Tree Wall Hanging was finished up this year in time to enter the fall fair.  It was foundation pieced from a pattern  – sorry I cannot remember the name of the designer.  I quilted it with a dense snowflake design in a gold thread, which looks very attractive and wintery too!
Some day, I will get out some buttons and bead to embellish the tree.  After all, Christmas trees need to be decorated, don’t they?




2017-25 Baby Blocks ABC Quilt

This set of blocks were left over from project 2017-7.  I assembled them into a top during the summer of 2017 and then quilted and bound it in October.  This second top using the same blocks went much faster because it was machine quilted rather than hand quilted.  The quilting design by Anne Bright has teddy bears and ABCs.  Very fitting for this top!

2017-24: French Bread Runner

This cute little runner was made from a kit purchased at Creative Sisters quilt Studio several years ago.  This year, it made it to the top of the priority list to get finished.  All of the fabrics are Christmas themed.  I added in an extra inner border because I like the look of two borders.  I quilted it with a design called “Christmas Paisley” by Ann Bright.  The binding matches the inner border.

It is nice to have a new table runner ready for Christmas!


2017-22 Patchwork Tote

This cute little patchwork tote was made from leftover pieces of Kansas Troubles style quilting fabrics.  It was then quilted very simply on a domestic machine with a walking foot.  The separately pieced lining was added to the inside and then it was bound with a diagonal brown fabric that matches the added handles.  It makes a simple, but attractive shopping tote.

2017-21 Aquachoc

This quilt stated with a line of fabrics in a kit.  It came with a pattern, but I had a different idea, so made my own design, floating the blocks on point,and added two borders.  The result is a simple, but pleasing quilt.  It was quilted with a digital design call Damask by Anne Bright in a tan poly thread.

This quilt won Grand Champion, Machine Quilting at the 2017 Fergus Fall Fair in September and then won first prize at the District 7 competition.  This means it will proceed to provincial competition in February 2018.

2017-20 Summer Sampler

This 48″ square afghan sized quilt was made from five different blocks with three borders added.   It was quilted with a petunia digital design  by Debra Giessler.

I used the John Flynn diagonal backing calculator to make a wider backing.  I love how it looks.  So easy to quilt.

2017-19 Baby Rail Bits

When I finished the Baby Rail Fence (2017-18), I had a little pile of leftover scraps.  Being at the cottage, I did not have access to my stash or any extra projects, so I started playing with the leftover scraps and came up with this layout for the small bits and the rail fence blocks.  I was pleased to be able to use up the leftovers and result in a cute little baby quilt.  It is machine quilted with a cute design by Ann Bright featuring bunnies and ABCs.  The design goes very well with the green alphabet sashing.
