Origami Spools

Spools Quilt

This 36″ square lap quilt in the spools pattern is well pieced and has a pleasing colour balance.  The quilting pattern is Anne Bright’s Origami Fan design which is done with a gold coloured cotton thread.  The fan pattern gives a pleasing texture to the design.  Doesn’t it look nice?

Carolyn’s Xmas Tree Wall Hanging


Carolyn’s Christmas tree wall hanging was quilted with and edge to edge snowflake design that echoes the print in the trees and border. Nice effect!  The thread was a very fine cream coloured Bottom Line both on top and in the bobbin.

Bright Squares

Pink and Blue Quilt

Nancy brought this quilt to me for an edge to edge design. Considering the floral theme to the top and backing, I selected the design called Iris, which I believe is by Deb Geissler. This is the first time I have used this design and I like how it turned out. A lovely fresh quilt that will be wonderful for snuggling.


Kay’s Hockey Quilt

Kay’s flannel quilt for her hockey playing grandson is a reflection of his passion for the game. Kay used hockey fabrics and had his favourite players’ names and numbers embroidered on some of the blocks. We selected the Anne Bright edge to edge design called Hockey. The quilting was done in a red thread to give the design a stand-out punch! Doesn’t it look great?

Kay’s Hearts for Sophia

Hearts for Sophia

This lovely heart themed quilt was made from Kay’s scraps.  Her granddaughter Sophia helped by selecting her preferred fabrics.  Sophia also chose the backing, a pink-toned Japanese fabric from Lecien Textiles.  Sophia chose Warm and Plush as the batting because she wanted a snuggly quilt.


The quilting design is called Rambling Hearts, a pattern from Australian designer, Keryn Emmerson.  The thread is a deep pink tri-lobal polyester that gives a nice sheen to the quilting.  Sophia is going to love this cuddly lap quilt!

Jean’s Frog Quilt


Jean made this delightfully bright frog quilt for her grandson.  The fabulous background fabric looks just like seaweed!

The quilting pattern is a frog border pattern that I adjusted to add reeds and cattails to make a full pattern.  The thread is a lime green cotton covered poly.  The batting is Warm and Natural.

Her grandson will be thrilled with this quilt!
