These are a few of the quilts that I have made.
Some are original designs and some are patterns from other great designers. Click on the images for more details.
This quilt is a scrappy version of the Twinkle Sampler pattern. I love using a scrappy background.
This beautiful quilt is made from four sets of 5″ precuts. The layout really shows off the colours of the fabric collection.
Six different nine patch blocks are used in this red and white sampler quilt. The plain background shows off the free motion quilting.
Inspired by the improv piecing of traditional pojagi, this modern quilt is made so that each block is unique.
Traditional shoo fly blocks nestled in a chain make this beautiful quilt with a build-in border.
This quilt doesn’t look like a sampler quilt, but it is. Each of these blocks are variations of the log cabin block.
Alternating blocks with solid squares give a great field for practicing free motion quilting. On this quilt I experimented with feathers of different shapes.
Using only two colours in a quilt eliminates decision fatigue and shows off beautiful fabrics.
This quilt uses the stack and whack technique for the kaliedoscope effect.
An easy squares quilt is the perfect choice for a baby quilt.
Purple, yellow and grey make a beautiful Fancy Forest quilt. The pattern is by Elizabeth Hartman.
The log cabin sampler quilt is made complete with the diamond border.
Hand embroidered sea scenes are set in bright nine patch blocks.
Simple but beautiful rail fence in pastel colours.
Shoo fly blocks and chain blocks show off a fabric collection.
For a baby quilt, sometimes one giant quilt block is the easiest option.
This quilt was for a guild competition. I probably had the most techniques in one project – machine piecing, paper piecing, 3-d piecing, needle turn applique, hand embroidery and hand quilting.
Disappearing nine patch with scrappy pieces gives a random look.
Subtle colours show off the traditional bento box pattern.
Blue and white fabrics are a great choice for the twinkle sampler quilt.
A few log cabin blocks make a quick and easy quilt.
The produce quilt was an exercise in partial seams.
This scrappy triangle quilt is the companion piece to the scrappy disappearing nine patch.
Wacky stars are fun piecing with no measuring or trimming.
