Staying Connected #52

Welcome to this week’s show and tell.

From Donna … This is a 50th birthday gift for my nephew who is a registered professional forester in the Cariboo.

This “Treez “ quilt is inspired by Jan Mullen, a modern improv quilter/artist in Australia.

Every tree is different in shape, size, colour. The orange/rust represents the mountain pine beetle kill that has devastated the forests of the Cariboo. I used up most of my bits and pieces of whites and creams, rusts and greens.

I found this Christmas tree pattern on Jordan’s quilt shop website and made two hangings. Used up everything!

From Anne W … Two Community quilts, both I-Spy, given to me in 2017 by Les O as cut up pieces. I’ve added to them in order to make three. (One is still in the works).

From Wendy S … Baby crib quilt “Barnyard Buddies.” I made it for my physiotherapist’s grandson. She bought the fabric, did the physio, and I made the quilt. Good arrangement.

From Janet … Here is a “golf” quilt I finished for Community Quilts and gave to Linda F.

I was very touched with the outreach that Community Quilts gives quilts to. I made this one specifically for someone who golfs or used to golf, so I hope it will find a good home, and bring back some fond memories.

From Chris … Just finished the Seaside table runner. I’ve had the print fabric for several years.
Another UFO done.

From Moira … Here is my attic window eye spy baby quilt. I used the walking foot quilting along with my new marking pen from Carola (Heirloom washout pen) and I was very pleased with both.

From Linda F … Community Quilts is always glad to receive projects that you have sewn. Here is a sample of what arrived on my doorstep.

Pet beds have been yapping and purring their way to me, though there are way more cat beds than those for dogs. These two members are decidedly cat lovers. Between them, they sewed 13 pet beds for the SPCA. Well done Sharon R and Judy S.

The stunning quilt below was donated by Elaine A. Don’t you love the vibrant colours! Her use of a piano key inner border really sets off the main body of the quilt.

Thanks for all your sewing and donations. Linda.

Many thanks to Donna, Anne W, Wendy S, Janet, Chris, Moira and Linda F for sending along these items for this week’s post.

It’s Trillium Time!
