some past quilt projects made with lovely friends
This is a baby quilt me and some lovely school-afiliated Halifax friends made as a gift for the first of the Dalhousie Master of Planning babies. Black crows were on the original pattern we roughly followed (appologies I don’t remember who to credit the pattern to), but we decided to make ours with colourful birds out of printed patterns. I would make this again. The geometric birds were pretty easy to make, and it made for a good collective project as we all worked on our bird squares. They ended up slightly different, but the diversity of birds just made it better.
We also made this quilt together as a wedding gift. We were going for night sky colours – so dark purples, blacks and gold for stars/intense contrast. I really like the layout/pattern. It is whimsical and you can play with the pattern and balance of squares quite a bit by turning the blocks.
This is another collective project for a wedding gift. This was a cross-country effort. We all worked on embellishing little squares then mailed them all to Vancouver where they were quilted by someone we hired with a fancy machine. We were all excited to arrive at the wedding and see the final product.
