My Mom's Flowers

Starting in 1999,each block was hand-appliqued with the needle turn method, signed and dated and was given to my mom as a gift for special occasions like her birthday, Mother's Day and Christmas. When I felt like I had enough blocks I put them together. The magnificent machine quilting was done by Tracey Russell of Whirls'N'Swirls Quilting.

Janet Harper
Come Back to the West Coast

This Quilt was started when my daughter was living in Toronto - she participated in the design and fabric selection process throughout and drew the sea creatures in the outer quilting. I love piecing landscapes using the stitch and flip method. The New York Beauty-type blocks were my own design and quite a challenge to piece.

And I am happy to report that the quilt worked! She is now living once again in Vancouver and I couldn't be happier!

Waltraut (Wally) Kraemer
The Silk Tie Quilt

For many years I have been collecting used silk ties. I love the colors and pattern in the ties. It has been a lot of fun washing, taking them apart and sorting them in different colors and textures.
I realized that over the years of collecting the ties, I had enough to make this King size Quilt and the matching pillow cases.
Now that it is completed, I enjoy looking at the finished quilt and thinking about where these ties have traveled over the world.

Quilted by: Karen Jurek


A partir d'une photo de la maison d'enfance de mon conjoint et avec la permission d'utiliser des scènes de l'oeuvre "Le Québec en automne" de Mylène Henri, peintre-illustratrice, ma nièce Marilyse Devoyault m'a fait un dessin couleur. Ma soeur Claire Devoyault et moi avons agrandi ce dessin puis découpé en 637 morceaux. Avec la méthode (papier congélation) nous avons cousu tous ces morceaux et avons utilisé de l'encre pour donner plus de réalisme (environ 300 heures). Seuls l'oiseau, un poisson et 2 étoiles de mer sont des appliqués. J'ai piqué le tout en 55 heures. Je remercie ma soeur et ma nièce d'avoir participé à la création de cette oeuvre "Chez-moi".

We started from a picture of my husband’s childhood house. With the authorization of the illustrator-painter Mylène Henri, we used some scenes of her painting "Le Québec en automne" and from some of her other paintings. At first, my niece Marilyse Devoyault drew a colored rough draft of it. My sister Claire Devoyault and I enlarged the design and cut it in 637 pieces. Using the freezer paper method, we sewed all these pieces together, we used some ink to make it more realistic (about 300 hours were needed). Only the bird, one fish and two sea stars were made of appliqué. It took me 55 hours to quilt it. I thank my sister and my niece for their participation in the creation of this piece of art ‘At home’.

Jayne Jenkins
My Secret Garden

It was a really fun quilt to make as I gathered all the different fabrics and added the embellishments. I used a reverse applique technique because I dislike freezer paper. I gave it to my youngest daughter for Xmas last year and it is hanging in her home. I have an ambition to do a hand applique/hand quilted piece for each of my eight grandchildren. This will eventually go to her daughter. I am working on numbers 7 and 8. I call these quilts my hockey quilts because I spend a lot of time quilting when all those hockey games are on.

Mieke McIntosh
Let Sleeping Cats Lie

When I saw this quilt at our previous Quilt Show in 2010, I loved it and decided to make it for my husband who loved cats.
The design is a variation of the Snail's Trail pattern. I hand appliqued and machine pieced the quilt and Judy Davis enhanced it with her free hand quilting skills.
It was fun shopping for the fabrics and even more fun making it, as applique is my favorite form of quilting.
