It's been painfully slow sewing the patchwork, but finally the Advent piece is at the quilting stage.
I am using my favourite wool batting; my plan for the quilting is to have it help reinforce the dimension on the surface of the quilt. Thus some sections will be densely quilted down, and adjacent ones will be left to pop. While quilting, I will ponder the central star...which I am not liking so much in silver lamé and yet...the star does need to shine. Hmmm...
I'm a quilt and pattern designer, award winning quilt maker, author and teacher. Since 1989, I have published well over 600 quilting patterns in magazines such as McCall's Quilting, Quilter's Newsletter, Quilt World, The Canadian Quilter and Quilter's Connection. I have contributed designs to 16 different books and co-authored Canadian Heritage Quilting with Diane Shink. My latest book, Quilting Beauties Come In All Shapes and Sizes, was published by AQS in 2015. Since 2018, I have been an Island Batik Ambassador. I am a dealer for Aurifil thread, and enjoy teaching workshops as time permits.
