Colleen McNichol
Lonestar Sampler

Our Guild was making sampler quilts to raffle or have for comfort quilts. The idea was by making a variety of blocks we would learn new techniques. For each Guild block, I also made a block for myself from my own fabric to make this quilt. It is different from the Guild quilts due to the different fabric choice. I quilted it free motion with swirls.

Louise Murphy
Big Red

I wanted to play with circles and wanted to play with red and white fabrics. The fabrics and a drunkards path ruler set the tone. Hand quilting really made the quilt complete.

Ruth Cholette

Ruth started this quilt May 8, 2008 and completed it in April 2012. It is all 1/2 inch hexagons, paper pieced, hand cut and covered with fabric. It took a total of 1085 hours to piece and I still have to quilt it. She worked on this quilt while travelling in the Yukon and Alaska and many fishing trips in Northern Ontario. During a hurricane up north and working on the quilt, my precious pieces and her new material went flying away and was mixed with hail, rain and dirt. She picked them all up and washed and dried them and continued on...

Nicole Lunn

This quilt pattern was purchased in Jasper after a horse-back riding trip in the Tonquin valley. This was the perfect memento, I love doing appliqué work. To my total dismay the pattern also required paper piecing. I was not knowledgeable or capable of doing this perfectly. I was a newby when it comes to paper piecing. With the help of my friends, Lorraine, Sherry and Sylvia I completed the quilt.

The lady in the magazine used a star to applique down the flowers, so Cathie decided to try it and did a great job.She added a 6" border to enlarge the quilt.

Quilting Santa

When we four were considering subject matter for our group quilt, we came across a photo of a painting of Santa quilting. The challenge to make this artwork into a quilt, the potential for using different techniques, and the subject of this painting made our decision unanimous.

We contacted the artist, Tom Newsom, who graciously gave us permission to adapt his painting. To view more of this very talented artist’s work, visit his website at http://newsomart.com/index.php

A variety of techniques were used while completing this quilt including hand and machine appliqué, hand and machine piecing, foundation piecing, hand and machine embroidery, shading with pencil crayons and fine-tipped permanent markers, fabric dyeing, hand and machine quilting, trapunto and embellishing.

Time to Read
This quilt was made for my son who is an avid reader and has been since he was very young.
The outer borders of books with favourite titles was inspired by the Library Quilt by Debbie Kratovil (Quick Quilts 1996). The second border was inspired by the block Twisted Log Cabin by Pix Martin. The centre fabric of clocks was my focal point. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with the fabric as soon as I spied it.
I hand quilted the project as it is my favourite hobby.
