Here is another little Susan Madu quilt.
Above and below - Patchwork City by Elizabeth Hartman - I made this one as a BOM with my quilt guild.
Here is a little Halloween wall hanging. Very cute!
And I do do "all over" quilting. Here is one example... hearts, flowers, swirls...
This is another of my quilts - trying to use some of my stash. I actually made two tops with this fabric, but this is the first one that I have finished.
A Patch Pals quilt - the penguin.
Here the panel was not cut up but left in the centre. It was a bit too big for the surrounding blocks. I didn't want to have a fold or pleat in it so I decided to so a tight background of pebbles - that took up the slack very nicely! I stitched around the little characters (they are so cute!) and treated them as if they were applique. I was very pleased with the outcome - and so was the client.
Halloween table runners.
|This is Cherrie House design that features linear and circular design elements.|
|Combining circular and linear design elements in the quilting design.|
|Orange peel in the squares and clam shells along the border.|
|This quilt was a challenge - different block areas, dark/light colours, sashing...|
|Large print area is a very large flower motif to coordinate with the print - light thread so only seen in certain lighting conditions. I wanted the print to be the focus, not the quilting.|
|I used the same thread throughout so the quilting shows up on the dark "ribbon" and sash fabrics. Feather in the corner triangles.|
All over feathers.
Flower and leafy meander.
This reminds me of ivy growing - many of the fabrics have little leafy components to their designs.
Border feathers - feathers and swirls in the body.
Flower corner treatment.
Curves are not suitable for everything. This is "rectangular loops".
Border swirls and centre feathers.
Little quilt I made for flood victims - fabric and pattern provided by Traditional Pastimes - a Calgary quilt store.
The quilting is a meander with leaves - many of the prints in the fabric had little leafy designs.
This is a quilt I designed for a friend. It was for a friend of hers who loves the ocean and sailing. The quilting is large swirls to capture the feeling of water and wind.
This quilt is for a friend's husband who has horses and is a roper so I used a double loop to give the sense of rope. The fabric had a theme of tiny stars so I added stars to the loops.
For scale, this quilt is made from 2 inch jelly roll strips by my friend Joan. She didn't want "fancy" or "thready" quilting. I thought a long linear design that flowed into very large swirls would do the trick.
This is t T-shirt quilt. The T-shirt squares were too large not to quilt, but I didn't want to interrupt the logos, so decided to "frame" them instead with a sort of Romanesque laurel.
This is a flattened meander to give the fish some water to swim in.
Border meander with little flowers. Each block has a large flower.
Pebbling to pop the applique.
This penguin is so cute! Loops with stars on the blue background. "Snowflakes" in the yellow sashing and corners, stippling in the white feathers, clamshells in the black feathers.
Loops - because isn't that the way bugs fly?
Meandering. Simple, fast, effective.
Feathers and McTavishing. This is a little charity quilt. Good practice.
Swirls and McTavishing combined in a border.
Rock around the block!
