I don't think my clients Sampler Quilt could have match my carpet any better!! It looked great in my livingroom but unfortunately I had to give it back :( That is the down side of this job...seeing the quilts leave after bonding with them for a few days. Actually seeing my clients face when I showed it to her for the first time made it all worthwhile. I love that feeling when you know you got it right! I must admit I did sweat a bit about this one as it was hand appliqued with a button hole stitch so a lot of time was spent on the piecing. The piecer shared a cute story about how her sister thought the applique in the border looks like bunnies...I would have to agree with her sister, that is all I saw when working on the quilting. So of course I had to quilt a bunny in this quilt!
I have been quilting for over 20 years and have turned my passion for quilting into a home business. Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting opened it's doors January 2009 on the shores of Schist Lake in Northern Manitoba. I have recently moved to Emo, ON and look forward to opening my business again soon.
This blog is where I share photos of my quilts as well as my clients quilts. I have recently become addicted to dyeing fabric especially snow dyeing as we have snow 6 months of the year. I have thrown in few personal stories about living on the shores of Schist Lake and now I'm ready to explore and share photos of the area around Emo, Ontario as life isn't all about quilting.
