Many of you are aware that Tamara kate of  has regularly contributed her expertise and enormous design flare in a wide variety of quilted and other projects over the years. You will find these under the Inspire tab on our website.

Many of you will remember her outstanding Canada 150 quilt as well as her pillow tutorial. Pic’s above. And please check out her website for patterns should you be inspired to make one of these.

We now are thrilled to offer you another great tutorial entitled Curve Appeal pillow. Some of you may have seen the beautiful big quilt we had on display in the Janome booth at Quilt Canada in Ottawa? We hope to also have it in the booth at Creativ Festival in October for you to see it if you did not get to Quilt Canada.

Tamara has designed a mini version of this quilt: her Curve Appeal pillow which you can find here. Full tutorial with templates and instructions are available for download under the Inspire tab on our website or on the link in the previous sentence. Please do let us know if you make this project and what you learned in the process.
