Two Charity Quilts Delivered

Yesterday, I dropped off two more charity quilts for Victoria’s Quilts Canada. Last week, their headoffice, located here in Ottawa, received requests for 80 quilts… in one week! They definitely need more quilters. It’s a fabulous organization, if you can help out, I’m sure they would appreciate it. These two quilts were made with the […]

The three coordinating fabrics are from Ricky Tims’ Rhapsodie Colorée III line. The 1/2 square triangles finished at 1.5″. They […]

I’m looking forward to improving my free-motion skills next year and learning new techniques. There are six additional quilts started, but not finished yet. What did you accomplish this year? Would love to see […]

Free Motion Playing

I have always been intimidated by free motion quilting, until now. My first attempts were awful: jumpy, inconsistent stitches, tension problems, stitches where I didn’t want them, etc. I was determined to improve this year. I have been working on six baby quilts for the local guild to donate to NICU babies. Pictures as soon […]
