My award-winning quilt, ‘Reflections’. I took the picture of a neighbour’s ’59 Caddy, took a pattern from it, blew it up and proceeded to take one and a half months to put all the little pieces on. I used a combination of tulle and organzas to create the subtle shading and highlights.This quilt won a judges’ choice award in the Canadian National quilt show in 2010, and the Grand Prize in the American Sewing Expo in Michigan Sept 2010. This quilt will be featured in the Aug , 2014 issue of The Quilt Life magazine. For sale as a poster on my Boutique page.

Alright, now onto other quilts…
This is my very first pictorial quilt. Yep, that’s right! I did it waaayyy back in 2005! I’ve only been doing this for 5 1/2 years…
This is called ‘Patience’ and it is full of mistakes.(did I write that out loud?) It was so much fun that I didn’t stop at one and now as of Aug 2011, I’m working on my 132nd quilt.
I did 3 quilts with a fire theme. This one is an early morning one with the embers left. Called Tranquil dawn. 18″x22.5″
My challenge with ‘The Sentinel’ was to create a realistic fire. I stitched small gold beads on afterwards for sparks. 26″x30″
The third in the fire series. Named ‘Lest We Forget’ ,this was an image from our local news that stuck with me. We lived right across the lake from a blaze that consumed over 200 homes in 2005. 26″x30″
