Bow Ties

This stunning quilt was made by Chere. She meticulously pieced hundreds of tiny bow tie blocks and put them together to form a secondary pattern. Truly a labour of love! The pantograph she chose is called “Jessie’s Swirls Simplified”.

Cynthia Challenge Quilt

A while ago I mentioned our guild’s “Cynthia Challenge”, named after one of our members who had donated a lot of 2″ squares. Gail’s “Scrappy Chains” was the first project I quilted that was made from Cynthia’s squares. Naida was also up to the challenge, and this lovely quilt is her result. This is another great pattern to keep in mind for using up scraps. I especially love the scrappy border, it pulls it all together nicely. The pantograph I used is called “Ginger Flower”.

Outer Space

Nola made this cuddly quilt as a gift for a little space traveler. Maybe a future astronaut? The fabrics speak for themselves, and the quilt is rather busy, so not much quilting was needed. The pantograph with the loops and stars we chose is called “Starry Night”, and I have used it on quite a few space-themed quilts. I only make one small change. The original pattern has a moon with a face which looks cute on baby quilts but is not really suitable for older space enthusiasts. I just quilt a curve instead of the mouth and nose shapes and turn the moon into a plain crescent.

Cross Trails

This colourful quilt was made by Sandra. Don’t you just love quilts with alternating blocks that create a secondary pattern? Sometimes you have to take a step back to be able to see it. I always enjoy when something unexpected shows up after all the blocks are put together. Sandra chose a leaf pattern for her quilt, this one is called “Wedding Vine”.

Bella

Ruth made this quilt that she calls “Bella” from a Jelly Roll. What a neat pattern to use up strips! She started it a couple of years ago, and pandemic restrictions finally gave her the time she needed to finish it earlier this year. The pantograph she chose for her project is called “Ginger Flower”.

CQA Challenge Quilt

In 2019, the Canadian Quilters Association started a sew along with the theme “52 blocks in 52 weeks”. They posted a 6″ block every week, and quilters from all over the world made them and shared pictures of their projects. Several of my local guild members joined the challenge as well, and this is Ellen’s version of the CQA Challenge Quilt. I love the bright colours she used to accent the blocks and how well the background fabrics pull the design together. Ellen chose “Wild Wind”, a basic swirly panto, for her project.

Vintage Windmill

“Vintage Windmill” is a Krista Moser pattern, and this is Linda’s version. I love the bright, bold colours and how they stand out against the white background. And even though the pattern name includes the word “vintage”, Linda’s quilt has a more modern feel, and “Overlapping Crop Circles” was a great panto choice for her project, adding nice texture.

Dog Gone Cute

Mitzy made this dog quilt as a gift for her granddaughter. Aren’t those dog faces just adorable? I am usually more of a cat person, as you might have noticed, but these little puppies are super cute. Choosing a pantograph was easy, we went with “Puppy Paws”, of course.

Songbirds

This beautiful row quilt was made by Bonnie and is based on a pattern by Bonnie & Camille who design for Moda.  I was delighted when Bonnie asked for custom quilting, this was such a fun project to quilt, and I am very happy with the way it turned out.

Sneak Peek: Quilted Penguins

Last weekend was a long weekend, with Monday being Thanksgiving in Canada, and I managed to sneak my Penguin Promenade top into the quilting queue. I didn’t really know how I wanted to quilt it, just had a vague idea of maybe some snowflakes. I should know better by now, I never just do “some” snowflakes… of course it took much longer than expected but I am really happy with the result. Here is a little sneak peek of my quilted penguins. Happy Friday, everyone, and have a good weekend!

Bunnies & Bees

Nola made this darling litte quilt as a gift for a new baby in the family. The squares showcase the different fabrics with animal motifs nicely, and it didn’t need much quilting. The design I used is called “Celtic Scroll”, a nice and basic circular pattern that works well with the straight lines of the pieced top.

Rail Fence

Rail Fence is a great pattern to use if you have a lot of scraps that you want to get rid of. That’s what Darcie did, and she turned all those leftover pieces into a beautiful quilt. Scrap quilts tend to be fairly busy and don’t usually need elaborate quilting, so we went with “Wild Wind”, a timeless swirly design.
