Double Wedding Ring Quilt

I just love quilting feathers and the double wedding ring quilt is the perfect design to showcase MANY, MANY feathers. In the rings I quilted a continuous curve design and then in the white background you can see the feathers. My eyes are going a little buggy as this is the 3rd day of working on this quilt. I think I will be dreaming about feathers tonight again!

Just finished it and posted the photo of the back of the quilt so you can see all of the quilting. LOVE IT!

Daisy quilt pattern

Here are some photos of a Daisy quilt pattern that I just quilted as a shop sample for Quilts and Calicos. It is a really cute children's quilt with bunnies and ducks and daisies of course. It sure makes me think of spring today even if there is a bit of snow coming down.

Learn to Quilt class- April 12th at 7:30PM

Thought I would update everyone on our learn to quilt group after tonight's meeting. There were a bunch of us that brought all our purple fabric so that we could learn to cut tonight. Everyone cut the strips in random widths and then we all divided it among the group so that our blocks would be made of the same fabrics. Everyone will try to do 4 blocks for next month's meeting where we will then square up the blocks and sew those blocks into rows. The ladies all learned so well and enjoy the night out! Keep up the great work and see everyone next month on May 3rd at 7:30PM

On Monday April 12th, I will be helping some ladies from Grace and St. George's Anglican churches learn to quilt. We will be starting at the very beginning by learning how to cut with a rotary cutter and ruler. This night we will be cutting purple fabric strips that will be used to make some sting blocks and then sewn into prayer quilts that we use at church to give to members that are ill.

Anyone can come out and join the group whether you are a member of the churches or not.
St. George's Anglican church: 12656 13 Mile Road just off of the Denfield Road.

Please remember to bring your purple fabric, quilting supplies and sewing machine. Supplies and fabric will be supplied if you do not have them.
