On Feb 27, 2024 I taught my Mosaic Landscapes class at Creekbank Sewing in Mount Forest, Ontario. This is based on Gloria Loughman's book "Radiant Landscapes" . I highly recommend her expertise on colour theory and all of the many quilts shown in this book. She's the genius of landscape quilt making!
This class was a very full one so another class has been added for March 26th. if you or a group of friends are interested in this class please contact Creekbank Sewing to register. at 1 519-323-2693. This newly built store has a huge, bright class, an awesome sales floor with BERNINA sewing machines, lots of notions and gorgeous fabric. Check out the class description here. Pictures from my recent class are shown below:

I had an awesome time Saturday teaching at Triangle Sewing in Guelph a Landscape Mini Quilt Class, the technique was hand appliqué . It was a great class to play, touch and ooh and awe over landscape fabrics and learn how to appliqué in such a way that the stitches are invisible.
We all had lots of fun, participants seemed to love the potential of this skill and fabric & said they would make more of these. Thanks to all 4 ladies who participated Wendy, Mary, Kirsten and Emily you made the start of my teaching year for 2024 fun! Below are some photos of the classroom, student projects, the students and my class samples. The one with the grey frame was demonstrated in class. If you are interested in one of my future classes take a look at my teaching page here or contact me about Trunk Shows or Classes here
Have an amazing week!😊❄️ Stay Warm and Well
As many of you know just before Christmas I took delivery & install of the Qmatic (Computer) System for my BERNINA Q20 Long Arm Machine. It's a big deal for me because I love to free motion quilt and love the quality of stitching that I get with the computerized quilting.
I am in love and simply amazed by this new addition/improvement to my already awesome Q20 Long Arm. I have finished 4 quilts all ready since Jan 1 and I am showing you them below. I am feeling very comfortable with Edge to Edge Quilting now and moving on to block quilting with my 5th quilt, stay tuned for a picture of that one. The first 2 are customer quilts and the second 2 are UFO's I am finally completing and now on to the binding! All completed with Edge to Edge/Pantograph Designs.
I hope you have a wonderful January!

This quilt is for the community. It will be placed under the tree at our church for a family in the Community who requested a "Blanket or Quilt". I pieced it some time ago, completely out of stash scraps. It was quilted on my BERNINA Q20 Long Arm with an all over large meander. So nice that the last quilt for 2023 is for charity. I feel very blessed to be fortunate enough to own a Long Arm and giving something to the community was a really good feeling. All my good vibes and best wishes go out to this family!
This quilt was brought to me by my customer to long arm. Lots of vintage fabric, It was kind of nostalgic to work on and lots of small pretty calicos to look at . I quilted this with the panto "Wildflower" because most of the patterns in the fabric are floral. I believe this was a quilt started by a previous generation and my customer completed ir. It is so nice to see it quilted at last !
