Scotty Dog Commission for Irene McKay

Commissioned Scotty 1 Commissioned Scotty 2 Commissioned Scotty 3
The requirements for this baby quilt were that it had to be pink and white and have a dog in the middle. Since the family is of Scottish heritage, we chose a Scottie silhouette for the centre and I created a border design that also incorporated the Scottie.
Joan Hug-Valeriote - School of Fish - Commissioned

Natalie's School of Fish

For Whom: Mrs. Annie-Marie Weston

Info: Mrs.Anne-Marie Weston, a friend who spent many years in the Bahamas asked for a quilt for her grand-daughter.  The fish and the turquoise blues on this single-bed coverlet are reminicent of the Caribbean sea

She helped make some of the fish from a Carol Doak paper-piecing pattern and I did the rest of the piecing. Rutheanne Finnegan did the machine-quilting on my long-arm machine.
Joan Hug-Valeriote - Of Winter Fields and Woods - Commissioned

Of Winter Fields and Woods
For Whom: Dr. David Booth

Info: Dr. Booth's Bargello was the working title for this double-bed quilt, but as I assembled the fabrics in the requested colours,it became"Of Winter Fields and Woods", reminiscent of the stubble left in the fields and the grey-brown of the bare tree trunks in winter

Not all the sections of this bargello are equal in length, which is unusual. The unequal widths of each strip determine the overall bargello pattern.
