Latest quilts

That I have quilted up for some of my favorite clients.

Such a lovely fall quilt by Sheila. I did a tight stipple around the leaves and a piano key in the border.

How about this fabulous modern baby quilt by Lauriane.

I quilted a 1/4 inch and a half inch out on all the seams.

This lovely quilt by Marie

We kept the quilting soft and went with Chantilly Lace.

The Christmas rush is almost in full swing, still time to get your Christmas quilts booked in!

Quilt Show quilting

Our day guilds quilt show is at the end of this month and we've been busy in the studio getting quilts ready for show.

Nora made this lovely batik quilt.

Nora wanted movement on the quilt so we went with Swirls by Circle Lord.

This is Juanita's first quilt.

Such a fun quilt. Juanita chose the pantograph Fliratious.

And this gorgeous quilt by Flo.

This one isn't for the show but for Flo's daughter who lives in Japan.

The colours are beautiful.

We went with the pantograph Bountiful Feathers; it was a perfect choice.
Enjoy your quilts ladies!

Spider Web

Halloween is coming and I love using the Spider Web pantograph on Halloween themed quilts.

Faye did this embroidery quilt.

The panto looks fabulous on it.

Carol's grand-daughter made this quilt. And it's her first quilt!

Super cute with the spider webs.

Now it's time to get back to Christmas quilting!

Weekend Sewing

Dave spent Saturday off discovering a new fishing lake so I had the day to spend uninterrupted with my sewing machine.

I got this fun charm quilt finished.

And I finished up this Scrappy Trip quilt that I started when we were camping.

I used a jelly roll and love how the colours compliment each other.

Now it's time to get to work! Happy Monday.

This weekend

Is the Calgary Creative Stitches and Crafting show and usual, Hamels has a booth. I finished up this quilts earlier in the week and got them back to Hamels in time to make the trek out to Calgary for the show.

I love this snowman.

I wanted to keep the quilting simple to not take away from the piecing so I used the panto Flirtatious.

These stars are lovely.

He's adorable.

I love this modern quilt.

I wanted to keep the quilting modern and went with the Circle Lord board ZigZag.

This next quilt just screamed for 'old fashioned' quilting.

I went with another Circle Lord board, Baptist Fans.

And lastly, this sampler quilt.

I wanted a more vintage feel so I went with Floral Meander.

Weekend fun

I found some sewing time on the weekend.

I have the last few blocks pieced; just have to find some more time to sew the rest together.

And now for some fun.

This is our linen closet at the top of our stairs.

It was a huge closet. Was being the key word.

We knocked the wall out and are coming into the closet almost the entire way. Also going into the main bathroom to the left just under 2feet.

This picture is looking for the bathroom towards the closet doors. That's going to be all a gorgeous shower in a few weeks.

The end result?

A new ensuite bathroom that is going to be so wonderful.
