This is the quilt that mom, Betty Manuel, and I worked on together this past year. We worked on the piecing together and spent lots of time picking out the fabric for each block. To start with I drafted about 5 different log cabin pineapple blocks. We then did paper piecing.
We entered it in the Canada Quilter's Association National Juried show. We were very happy and surprised as our quilt won Excellence in Workmanship in Piecing. We won some cash so it meant I could do some shopping at the market mall.
I did the machine quilting. Some was on my long arm and then I did some stitch in the ditch on the domestic machine. I used red thread on the black for the free motion feathers. I just love how that red thread added to the glow of the quit.
We also entered the quilt in the Edmonton Quilt Guild Show And it also got a ribbon.
