Another Summer is almost up

It has been a whirlwind of quilts and guests all summer long.  We ended up our July Quilting for Calgary campaign with 36 completed quilts and 5 tops that went to Calgary.  Then we had some more dropped off by guild members and quilted by Timmy-Jeanne Quilting Arts and we were sent some to quilt too!  Huge thanx to Elsie Gates, Gwen Breen, Gloria Riebin, Heather Gates and Cathie Scott for their efforts to quilt, bind and label that batch!

Many customer quilts have been on the frame in the past few months too, and I have lots of pictures to share!  I may have missed one or two, please let me know if you don’t see your quilt here so that I can share it!  They are all so beautiful that they deserve to be seen!

This is Carol B’s quilt, a stack n whack made with a funky fabric picked out by Rod at Heart n Sole in Grand Forks, BC.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get it quilted in time for the Christina Lake Quilt Show, but it looked wonderful hung at the 10th Anniversary Quilt Show at Heart n Sole yesterday!


This is Jean H’s quilt, it’s from the Batik Gems book.


It was a challenge coming up with a quilting design for this one, but once I got it figured out, it worked out nicely I think!

023Another colourful creation by June B, this one’s for a great granddaughter…… lots of different techniques, bits and pieces…. always inspirational.025
Here is one of Verna’s quilts, she had this outdoorsy border stripe and added some strips in between…..then a few different blocks for a border, using up some autumn colours, more improvisation…… I know I should say ‘buy a pattern’ buy you could buy two or three and take the parts you like from each one and put them together…. (or make it up as you go, just remember the seam allowance).
Another of Jean H’s quilts, the front and the back are equally fun, we did a different fill in each block, such fun, I used the Angela Walter’s book for inspiration…..
Sharon D’s Trip Around the World, she is getting  a ton of quilts done these past few years!
006This is another one of Hedy’s Celebration quilts!  she’s made a few since our block of the month last year…. it is a fun quilt to work on, the pattern is available in the shop….. great for honing your piecing skills!
This is a little quilt that Charlie made up for her first Great Grandaughter.
These are Darlene’s quilts, you’ll be able to see them at the Nelson Quilt Show Oct 5th and 6th……

Here is Mary’s 13 year quilt, she started it 13 years ago and finished it up as a wedding gift for her niece!
007 006 005
This is Joanne’s Fracture of the Daylily  from Frond Designs….. I didn’t see it in the quilt show yesterday,,,, maybe I missed it?

This is Nina’s quilt, made for a special niece who’s a Silviculturalist, so the trees and hummingbirds represent her very well.  You may be able to see this one at the Rossland Quilt Show, October 19th and 20th.
012 013 014 015 016
These are Deb B’s batik quilts, the second one with the motorcycle batik and the stars is from the book Strip Therapy 3 by Brenda Henning, there’s a copy in the shop for sale, lots of great ideas for Bali Pops or Jelly Rolls!
005 004 002 001
This is Darion’s quilt, he picked out the fabrics and the quilting designs and let his Auntie Nola make the quilt.  Snowman flannels from Northcott, nice and cuddly for a wonderful young fella!
007 008
This is Lorena’s Celebration Quilt, done in some gorgeous batiks, looks so different from the other two shown earlier doesn’t it?  One of the reasons I love to quilt……
002 003
Shirley F’s quilt, great modern design that sets off her blocks from a fat quarter bundle she really loved, the back is pretty cool too.
005 008 010
One of Jo’s quilts, many many black and whites with a little touch of colour added into the borders, ready for the Nelson quilt show….
