2017-18 Baby Rail Fence

This baby quilt was made from a purchased kit with pre-cut strips.  it was a convenient package of fabrics to use when I was at the cottage this summer.  It went together easily and quickly.

When I got back home in the fall, I quilted it with a digital quilting design by Anne Bright with ABCs and teddy bears.  Really cute and it coordinates with the ABC border.

2017-17 Flower Pot Pillow

This pillow is made from a panel enlarged with log cabin strips.  Both the front and back are machine quilted with a flower pattern.  A zipper was added and a lovely soft down pillow added.  The result – a great comfy pillow!

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.

2017-13 Christmas Tree Skirt

 

This Christmas tree skirt goes well with the warm colours of my home.  The red matches my living room walls.   This skirt looks great underneath my Christmas tree!

It was quilted with a digital design called Christmas Paisley by Anne Bright.  I used a tan Omni thread on top and tan Bottom Line in the bobbin, which blended well with the muted colours of the skirt.   It was bound with a brown diagonal stripe that looks awesome cut on the straight of grain.  I finished the binding on a very long car trip to the east coast this summer.  It feels great to have a new tree skirt ready in December to update my Christmas decor.

2017-12 Coffee Place Mats

These four place mats were made using the four fat quarter stacking method.   After stacking the fat quarters, you simply made four cuts and then rearrange the pieces to create the four distinct place mats.  These fabrics are coffee themed and the backing is tea bag fabric.  They are machine quilted and bound by hand.
