Our Maple Leaf

 A wonderful quilt made by Rose with our Canadian Flag in mind.


Made for her son, it is wonderful.  Wanting to show off the colors and the bright red maple leaf meant matching threads and keeping the topstitching simple.



It was fun to topstitch the water pattern up and down as I had to load the quilt on its side in order to take advantage of thread swapping.





It turned out fabulous. I'm sure her son is going to love it!!

Pieced back.

Lisa's Sedona Quilt

 What a wonderful quilt, bright, white, and colorful all mixed into one.


The Sedona was a fun quilt to work on and Lisa loved the meandering feathers that gave the quilt a little motion besides.


Lisa decided to make her Sedona quilt linier rather than the more traditional of mixed blocks and designs. 


Pretty back.

A lovely quilt Lisa, fun to topstitch.

Keyhole quilt

 Anne From Calgary commissioned me to make this wonderful Keyhole quilt for her.  It is large, about 108" x 115".


The view shown above is only a quarter of the quilt.  It used 2 Bali Pops and about 3m of blue fabric for the top.




All the squares are randomly placed and topstitched with a large meandering feather pattern.  Non computerized of course.




I just love using wide back fabric, you can match the front to the back and make the binding consistent with the rest of the quilt.

I am sure Anne is just going to love it when she comes to pick it up in May.
