Monique Wilson
Full Bloom

In Monique"s words:
Using EQ7 for inspiration I designed this quilt to show case the medallion applique centre. I love all quilts on point.

I first saw the fabric at a local quilt shop and loved the colours and the patterns of the fabric. I had no clue at the time what I was going to make. So began the process of designing. I knew I bought enough to make a king size quilt for our new bedroom set. I loved every process of making this quilt from the design to piecing to free motion quilting on my long arm machine. I truly enjoyed making this quilt and can call it my own.

Un ange est apparu

Un ange est apparu

Vingt-sept tissus, de la même gamme chromatique des couleurs, ont été récoltés au fil des ans pour réaliser cette courtepointe. Le modèle de Bargello, inspiré de la méthode 'Twist and Turn' de Eileen Wright, a été conçu sur un chiffrier Excel. C'est à la fin du piéçage, en renversant la pièce, que le dessin d'un ange m'est apparu. Enfin, le choix de ne pas ajouter de bordure, confère à la pièce un look moderne.

An angel appeared

Twenty-seven fabrics, of the same chromatic color range, were collected over the years to make this quilt. The Bargello model, inspired by Eileen Wright's 'Twist and Turn' method, was designed on an Excel spreadsheet. It is at the end of the quilting, by turning the piece upside down, that the drawing of an angel appeared to me. Finally, the choice of not adding borders, gives the quilt a modern look.

Rennie Hickey
Summer Beauty

This quilt was started in a class given by Brenda Payer on hand appliqué. This was many years ago and I was finally able to finish the quilt this year. All the blocks are hand appliquéd, the sashing is pieced and the quilt was machine quilted by myself on a domestic sewing machine.

Bernice Wearing

Bernice said: "I had a different colour in mind when I planned to make this quilt but when I saw the floral fabric, I had to go with purple. I like how it turned out. I made it into a bedspread size instead of a smaller quilt size."

Alison McDonald
Garden Path

Floral strips were made several years ago - 30 yards of them, with a different use in mind.
At a 2014 workshop with Deb Beirne's, she encouraged me to use them. I had the blocks pieced that weekend and the top finished by the end of the week. Then it sat in my 'to be quilted' pile for 2 years, until I decided to dig in and get it done. 8-10 hours piecing and roughly 10x that in quilting

Being of Celtic heritage the making of this quilt seemed a natural choice. The quilt is in 2 colours. It is hand appliqued and hand quilted. It took her 3 months, working 3 hours a day when the light was at its best.
