This is Helen's Teddy Bear quilt which is so adorable. She appliqued the bears with batting underneath and used minky and chenilled fabrics to give them great texture. This does provide a challenge for longarm quilting as the appliques were very thick so rolling the quilt was a bit tricky. I decided to quilt free hand loops and hearts across the quilt to continue with the folky feel of the applique.
I also finished Valery's beautiful brown lap quilt this week and used the panto Plush.
I have been quilting for over 20 years and have turned my passion for quilting into a home business. Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting opened it's doors January 2009 on the shores of Schist Lake in Northern Manitoba. I have recently moved to Emo, ON and looking forward to discovering all the beauty of the area and meeting new quilters.
This blog is where I share photos of my quilts as well as my clients quilts. I also enjoy dyeing fabric especially snow dyeing as we have snow 6 months of the year. I have thrown in few personal stories about living on the shores of Schist Lake and now I'm ready to explore and share photos of the area around Emo, Ontario as life isn't all about quilting.
