Pink and White Quilt

This gorgeous quilt was made by Sue.  This is the first quit that Sue had brought me, and she asked me to go to town with the quilting on the white borders.  I was very happy to oblige.

I quilted feathers, curved cross hatching and straight lines to break up the areas on the borders. 

A plain white fabric on the back was perfect for showing up all the quilting.

Modern Quilt in Purple

This modern quilt was made by Sandra.  I think the design is very striking.

I quilted it with an allover freehand design I call boxes.

More Circular Embroidery

Another of Janet Sansom’s beautiful embroidery quilts.  I like how the embroidery is circular but the piecing is very square. 

I quilted feathers around the embroidery in both the blocks and the border and continuously curved on the squares in the piecing.

Pam’s House Quilt

This sweet quilt was made by Pam using both needle turn and blank stitch appliqué. 

I did small meandering on the background and outlined a lot of the appliqué so the houses pop.  I especially love the colours.

Embroidery and Feathers

Yet another of Janet Sansom’s beautiful embroidery quilts. 

I liked the straight lines I did on the wide sashing on Marion’s quilt and decided to do it again on Janet’s.  The area between the lines was wider so I did a more freeform feather that matched the feathers I did in the setting triangles and border.

The back really shows the quilting and the outlining of the embroidery.

It was quilted with a combination of feathers, ditch stitching, and straight lines in the sashing.

Square Feathered Wreaths

There were a lot of mini feathered wreaths on Jill’s quilt which was designed by Sandra Boyle. 

Jill asked me to take the feathers out to the edges of the square.  I really liked the effect on this quilt as it filled the plain areas completely, and complimented the design of the quilt.

 All of the pieced blocks were ditch stitched.
