SDDA Quilt

Now that the 1st Annual Sporting Detection Dogs Association’s National Challenge Cup banquet is over, I can share this quilt I made and donated.

I incorporated the SDDA colours of purple and black and included the logo that was designed by one of our members.

I had a lot of fun quilting the white background and even added paw prints.

Dawn’s Quilt


I am way behind in posting my quilt finishes.  I made this one for a friend. Just before Christmas, her son announced that he was moving to Australia and leaving before the end of the year.  Her home in Canmore is very lovely and full of Canadiana so that gave me the inspiration for this quilt.  My thought was that whenever she was sad and missing her son, I wanted her to wrap herself up in the quilt and think of her son hugging her.  I hope it helps.

Humboldt Strong

I was deeply affected by the loss of so many people as a result of the Humboldt bus crash.  The Saskatoon Modern Quilt Guild put out a call to quilters across Canada asking us to make and donate quilts to give to people who had been directly affected by the crash.  They asked for 200 quilts.  I knew I wanted to help.  Then I found out that one of the victims was member of a friend’s extended family.  Instead of making a generic quilt for the group, I decided to make an quilt dedicated to the family who lost their son.  I hope that it will provide some comfort to them.

Heidi’s Comfort Quilt

I am way behind in posting pictures of my completed quilts.  I finished the comfort quilt about a month ago.  It was given as a group gift to one of our friends in our Sunday morning walking group.  It includes inspirational sayings that were picked out by members of our group.  I have never been a fan of “scrappy” quilts but there is something about this one that really appeals to me.  I just smile when I look at it.

Week 2 of the QAL

This weeks’s goal was to finish cutting all the neutral fabric and to piece 5 large and 9 small blocks. Goal achieved. If my math is correct, I have cut 1317 pieces of fabric to make a lap size quilt. Yikes!

December ALYoF Goal

I’ve been working on Leftovers VI since the summer. I finally finished all the blocks in September so now I just have to come up with a design using my 25 blocks.  I need a boot in the fanny to get it finished by year end so it is my December goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes.

FAL #2

I have my second FAL for the 3rd quarter (this is my original list).  It is my little black dress lap quilt.  It was a gift for someone that I have worked with for a long time.   Unfortunately I was so rushed to get it to her before she went on vacation that I forgot to take pictures of the finished quilt.  Here is what it looked like before I had the final borders on:


The recipient was kind enough to share a few pictures.
