Facets Quilt

One year ago, the Montreal Modern Quilt Guild went to visit the Guido Molinari Foundation. As I mentioned in this post, this lead to a challenge to all members to create a quilt inspired by the work of this Montreal artist. In April I presented my plan, today I want to share with you the finished quilt. It was […]

A Try at Improv

Earlier this year, I read Sherri Lynn Wood‘s book: Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters. I heard so much good about her and her approach to improvisational piecing, I thought it was about time I give it a try. I did participate in an Improv Round Robin last year at the meetup between the Montreal and Ottawa MQG. […]

But, his gallery is still open to the public. Before his death, he created a fondation to continue perpetuating his art and abstract painting in general. Our group […]

Random Projects

Today, I though I’d share a few small projects I didn’t take the time to share in the past months. First, I made two placemats before Chritmas for each of my sons teacher. My sons helped me chose the patterns and fabrics. I had proposed a few paper-piecing patterns. One chose the Lil’ Fox by Sonja […]

Metamorphosis Quilt

A few weeks ago, I presented one of the quilt I had in the exhibit by the Montreal Modern Quilt Guild. Here I am to present you the second one. It’s named Metamorphosis and I made this one to represent the minimalist category in the show. I already mentioned this quilt here as I was design it last year. See this […]

A Sprinkling of Stars Quilt

The exhibit organized by the Mtl MQG is over.  I can now share a bit more about my two quilts that were part of it. I’ll start today by the quilt I’ve made to represent the alternate grid work category. I named it A Sprinkling of Stars (Sous une pluie d’étoiles). A few sources of inspiration […]
