Stephanie made this: The redwork is from a pattern that she bought at the Mississippi Textile Museum in Almonte Ontario. She autodigitized it with Janome Digitizer years . ago. Great patriotic tribute to our beautiful country - specifically fr this 150th anniversary

One of the lovely slab blocks for the Big Canadian Quilt Bee. Snip and Stitch held a wonderful sewing/quilting day at the store to make blocks. Note the decorative stitching on the paler yellow strips.....we all thought that added something unique to the quilt top.

So did this one get oohs aaahs......Doris used the tiled embroidery collection from www.janome-embroidery.cim to make this Dashing through the snow mural. Each block and the border is machine embroidered and then cleverly sewed together for the tiled/window pane scene. Stunning!

They call me “the energizer bunny” when I visit this store ……..well clearly I am not the only one as these Janome customers sure have been working flat out to produce this and many other wonderful projects. I wish I could have shown them all!

My apologies if I did not get all your names or made any errors…..drop me a note in the comment box and I will fix that.

    I live in Victoria BC so it’s nice to see the beautiful art work others are creating on my island 🙂 Gorgeous work – I’m always in awe at the patience, careful planning and sewing that quilters do to create their works of art.
