What are you Working on now? - Part 2

To continue with "what are you up to?"
Lots of UFO's and Guild/Member Challenges as well as some personal challenges too!
Great Job - we love to see, especially and also to hear what you are working on - our very own Quilt Show!

Barb Schan

Barb: This began as I attempted to follow a Missouri Star Quilt Company video. However I did not have the right ruler so I made it big, for me, to quilt and put on my dining room wall.  The centre will be quilted to look like seeds to enhance the Black-Eyed Susan look.

Dana Barresi

This is what Diane Barresi is working on now.....

Diane Sanci


Diane Sanci must get the binding on this quilt for the upcoming Westshore Quilters' Guild quilt show! (April 17-18 at Eagle Ridge Community Centre in Langford).


Georgia Andrews
                                                                                   Georgia Andrews - This is a photo of current project - "Mother and Child".  I started this - designed and pieced (fused applique) in June 2011 (yes!) shortly after the birth of my granddaughter, Zara.  It was put on hold so many times - as it was, undoubtedly, miles above my skill level as a new art quilter!  After lots of revision, I am FINALLY finishing the thread-painting on the faces. It should be ready in time for Zara's 4th Birthday!!!

Sylvie Lajoie

 Linda Garland - Moberly Lake, BC
This is a "fractured" nine patch to make a smaller lap quilt.  The squares are trimmed at 7.5 inches.
I will be doing it up with black narrow sashing in a "Quilt as you go" method.

I have always wanted to do something in neutral white, grays and blacks.

Sylvie Lojoie is a textile artist living in Montréal, Québec and I love doing quilts with mixed-media (paper, acrylic, founded objects, painted and recycled textiles.

Right now I’m doing a quilt with 4 squares (average 30 inches by 30 inches each) with interior swatches of textiles, paper and acrylic.

This is my first square that is not finished yet.

Wendy Cooper

 Wendy Cooper - started this last night. It's a French braid quilt using three braids.
It's for my very good friend who lives purple. I have been picking up all kinds of purple batik fat quarters all winter. I had a hard time deciding a design but finally settled on the braid. It's fast and so pretty.


Lorrie Barber

This is the Mystery Quilt that Lorrie is quilting at the moment.

Our Guild, Trent Valley Quilters' Guild is having their show, "Fabric of Our Lives", June 6th & 7th, 2015 in Brighton and there will be several Mystery Quilts on display.  Kim Diehl designed this quilt, "Hearthside Memories" and it was in The American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine in 2002.  Our Guild obtained permission from her to make this quilt.  

Carole Gold

Carole Gold has been preparing for the first stage of the Quilt Judge Certification Programme - which means working through lots of "pre-work" exercises!

I've attached a process photo showing my work table at the beginning of a recent line exercise. This challenge entailed cutting random strips from complementary colours, and then creating a composition that covered the white base fabric.

And, "that's" what I'm working on right now! (since the end of January, actually!)
