Madame Jackie's quilt part 2

She is done! she is done! All ready to be gifted. It is lovely to be able to do a simple quilt. She is not very big, just enough to cuddle under on the couch or hang on the wall as a nice accent.





Now on to new things. My cat Quilt pattern as a huge success at Quebec Quilt and I had multiple people asked for a dog quilt. Well I got 10's of different suggestions going from a gecko to a buck :D

Sneak peak, I am working on this very good boy :)



And those love birds have been living in my computer for almost 6 months, it would be nice to make them live on fabrics :)


Tell me what low poly beast (or other) would you like to see?

Miss Jackie's quilt

Every year, I  buy  thank my daughter's teacher by making her a quilt. Every year I ask her to learn what are the teacher's favorite colors.

This year the answer was Red, white and black......easy peachy. Well easy if I didn't wait until almost the last week of school to start this quilt :)

I used a white on white fabric, some nice beige and a cute farm print. For the punch I used a dark wine red as the border and appliqué Red EPP stars as a extra punch and interest. Where the quilt has simplicity in the piecing, I decided to quilt feathers with a swirl and pebbles filling.

Edit : Missing the binding and it is so cloudy outside I was not able to take a decent picture but I wanted to show the whole quilt. I will try to get a better (finished) picture as soon as the sun is out. (and it is nowhere as crooked at it look on this picture!!!)

Best in Show! The texture in the quilting is lovely! I hope to be able to get inspired for my own quilting. Made by Jocelyne Martel



My FMQ teacher won another prize as she does every year lol. Marina Segalovitch. Love everything she does.



You probably have seen this winner at Quilt Canada 2017, This piece contain so many different technique that I am not sure where to start. Made by Colette Dumon.




I really enjoyed this piece from Dominic Ehrmann, easily recognizable with her 3D technique. I love adding 3D elements in my quilt but she is really the Queen of 3D
