I Woolly Love Ewe

Isn’t this just the cutest quilt? I was thrilled when Wendy asked me to custom quilt it for her. There was so much negative space to fill, block background, sashing, borders, I had a lot of fun playing with it and coming up with different designs for the different areas. Wendy provided the picture of the finished quilt, and I have permission to share it. I agree with the little girl, the black sheep was my favourite too 🙂

Several people have asked for the pattern, I didn’t design this quilt, I just quilted it. The designer’s name is Janet Stone, and it was published in Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting magazine, in the Jan/Feb 2009 issue. It looks like it is still available as a digital edition here.

Under The Sea

When Nicole dropped off this quilt, she told me she wanted bubbles and seaweed quilted in the background and whatever else I could think of that would fill all this negative space. She didn’t have to ask twice, this was one of the most fun projects ever. I went really crazy, quilting any kind of sea creature I could come up with. It ended up being almost an I Spy quilt. I admit it was quite intimidating when I started at the top with all that empty space. I quilted the bigger creatures first and then went back to fill in the background with smaller objects and various filler designs. The full quilt can be seen in one of the smaller gallery pictures, just click on it to enlarge the view.

Pretty Pinwheels

Barb made this pretty quilt as a gift for the baby daughter of friends. The quilting design is called “Wandering Daisies” and was just right for this cute girly quilt in all my favourite colours.

Dinosaurs

This quilt featuring dinosaurs is the second of two that Maureen made for her grandchildren to take on camping trips this summer. The quilting design, “Celtic Scroll”, is the same we used for the other one, it was all this quilt needed as there was already so much going on.

Birds

Maureen made this cheerful quilt from colourful Laurel Burch fabrics. This is the first of two she made for her grandkids to take on their camping trips this summer. I really like the layout of this one, a very effective pattern. The quilting design is “Celtic Scroll”, we decided to keep it simple.

Latte Macchiato Stars

Jean made this wonderful quilt in subtle neutrals that reminded me of milk and coffee. She chose the quilting desing “Swirling Feathers” which filled all that negative space between the star blocks nicely.

Judy Niemeyer Flower Garden

Lynne made this quilt designed by Judy Niemeyer in a class. This isn’t her first Judy Niemeyer project but the first that has appliqué. She asked for an overall quilting pattern and chose the design “Ginger Flower” for her quilt. This is a huge quilt that was difficult to photograph, and the pictures don’t do it justice at all but this was the best I could do.

54-40 or Fight

“54-40 or Fight” is the name of one of the blocks Ellen used for this quilt. She alternated them with different blocks to achieve a secondary circular pattern. Isn’t this an amazing quilt? Ellen usually quilts her own quilts but this one is a special gift, and I was happy to quilt it for her. She had even come up with most of the quilting design before she dropped of her quilt, she wanted it to emphasize the secondary circles. For the back, she pieced her leftover fabrics and blocks, and I really like how the quilting looks from the back, like stars and flowers on a cross-hatched background. What a fun project to work on!

Scrap Crazy

For this quilt, Beverly was determined to use up scraps and orphan blocks. The top is mostly organized and within a certain colour scheme, and she did a lot of crazy-quilt-style embroidery. But for the back she decided that anything would go… large and small scraps, pieced, appliquéd and embroidered orphan blocks – whatever was at hand went into it. I had to laugh when she warned me before she pulled it out of her bag. Yes, it certainly was quite wild but at least she found a use for all these leftovers. I quilted it with the pantograph “Celtic Scroll”, this was definitely a quilt that didn’t need a lot of intricate quilting.

Polka Dot Parade

This quilt was made by Beverly, and she wasn’t sure if she wanted custom quilting or just an allover design. I thought the quilt asked for custom quilting with all that white background to fill. I could immediately see one design in the polka dot squares and another in the background, and Beverly liked the idea and trusted me enough to let me go ahead.

Log Cabin Beads

“Log Cabin Beads” was made by Ginger and is already the second quilt she made using this pattern. She gave the first one away but loved it so much that she decided to make it again, this time for herself. The pantograph we used is called “Time Warp”.
