This is Diane’s HST quilt and it is made with beautiful batik fabrics! She said she started with a pattern and then changed it a bit and made the HST blocks larger (finished 7”). I quilted it with the Deja Vu pantograph using light pink So Fine thread on top and blue Bottom Line on the back.
She brought a beautiful blue wide backing from Up North Quilt Shop in International Falls , MN. It is great having a quilt shop so close, it is only 30 minutes away, only down side is I have to cross the border to get there but I’m getting use to that! The shop carries a large selection of Wide backings so I do not need to carry that many anymore and the owner, Missy and staff are so friendly! So make sure you check out this quilt shop when you are in Northern Minnesota, you won’t be disappointed!
This weekend Tim and I went for a drive to see if the local lakes had froze yet. Its been getting above freezing all week so most of the snow is gone but still cold enough at night to start making ice. I was happy to see that there was ice on the lakes but Tim wouldn’t let me venture too far! I was just near the shoreline on 4” of ice and was able to get a few picture, just wish the sun was out! Hope to be able to access this area when the snow falls as it would be a perfect spot for quilt pictures!
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.
