Legendary Quilt

This is Stacey's Legendary quilt which is a pattern by Elizabeth Hartman.  This is a fun pattern showing the mythical sasquatch running though the forest.

I quilted it with the Windswept pantograph, used white So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.

Stacey found the perfect green Minkie for the backing and it matches the top so well.  She made this for her husband who wanted to have it for on their couch.

Police Quilts

Back in October I had the privilege of custom quilting 2 quilts for Julie.  She made these quilts as gifts for her sons who are both police officers and they received their quilts this month.  Julie used the same panel and layout for both quilts but added their shoulder badges and photos to personalize them.

  This first quilt is Shawn's who works for the Winnipeg Police Service.  

I quilted the outer border with the Curved Echo design using curved rulers, added loops and stars to the inner border, SID in the piecing and added wavy lines on the panel.

Since the panels have an American flag in the background I thought I would add a Canadian element and put maple leaves in the back border.

The second quilt was Tyler's who is an Ontario Provincial Police officer.

I quilted it similar to Shawn's but changed the inner border quilting to swirls.

Call of Nature Quilt

Here is a fun wall hanging that Lori made using a kit she purchased from Dragonfly Quilt Shop.  The pattern is called Call of Nature by The Whimsical Workshop and uses Northcotts 'Natures Calling' fabric collection.  

I quilted it with the Flirtatious pantograph as the design looks like little moons.  I used beige So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting. 

The collection includes this fun outhouse print as well as a toilet paper print. I imagine with the random toilet paper shortages during covid this fabric has probably been used to make some creative wall hanging over the last two years.

Here are some close ups of the panel blocks.

Silver Lining Quilt

Diane pieced this gorgeous Silver Lining Quilt which was a box kit by Moda featuring the Stiletto fabric line by Basic Grey. She purchased it from Road 17N quilt shop in Winkler, MB.

I quilted it with the Flourish pantograph, used a light grey So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.

This is such a lovely colour palette.
