This Seasonal tablerunner by quiltworx went together like a dream. I bought the quiltworx quilting pattern and the talented Janet Slater made it happen. It has a feathered medallion in the centre but what I really like was the feather pattern over the circular flying geese
Pille's Bird Quilt
It takes a group to finish a project! Many hands make light work as the saying goes. A number of Dufferin Piecemakers Quilt Guild members gathered at Meridian on January 27 to finish the quilt top former president Pille was working on when she became ill. It’s from a Lorna McMahon pattern called “Birds”. Thanks to Janet Slater for quilting it.
Muskoka Quilt by Janet
From the Muskoka Shop Hop 2017 Bracebridge, Orillia , 2 stores in Barrie and Cookstown. Fun day on a shop hop and the quilt certainly is different! The quilt took awhile! There were many small pieces to cut and join...but I had fun quilting it!
A Christmas surprise
I was able to finish this quilt before Christmas. My son just loved it! He wasn’t sure how I was able to make it without him knowing. Thank you again for making this happen.

Trish made this wonderful horse quilt for her great granddaughter. I quilted cowboy hats and boots on it. This quilt will be loved!!!

Garden Tour Quilts in memory of Pam Neilly
I quilted these for Sue Hopkins Van Zant’s Garden Tour. The tops were pieced by 10 quilters in memory of Pam Neilly. They were auctioned off at the Garden Tour and proceeds donated to Bethel House.
This quilt was a special quilt for Jill's sister in law. The colours reminded her mother of her mother and the butterflies reminded her of her vacations with her late husband with all the butterflies.
Sabina's Silk Quilt
Sabina started this quilt in 2016. The quilt top is 100% silk. The fabric of the binding is also silk and it was used in several of the large medallions. The backing is cotton with 80% cotton batting.
I enjoyed quilting this adorable owl quilt. This was pieced by Carol for her friend who is going to be a grandmother. The baby will have a very special quilt ! Carol put extra batting in the owls so when I quilted the "feathers" the owls really popped!!!
My quilt looks really great. I am so proud of it. Thank you for doing such a great job on it. It really looks lovely.
A Christmas Gift
A very special Christmas gift that Sharon made. I received this picture on Christmas Day with the subject saying, " I think she really likes it ! "
Craig's Quilt - by Janet
This is a quilt I made for Craig. I designed the quilt using the Storm at Sea pattern.
A "Cool" Silk Quilt
This quilt top was made in 100% silk. Sabina made it for her grandson Noah and together they researched the meanings for the butterflies, dragons and flowers. Noah thinks his quilt is "cool."
A VERY Long Tablerunner
A very long table runner (110 inches). Top was made by Val for her daughter in England. I received a lovely email with all the pictures and a comment from Val's daughter Sarah. "Wonderful work"
Joan's Wedding Gift Quilt
Janet Slater is a wonder. I was impressed with her ability to not only listen and understand what I wanted, but guide me and then make adjustments to ensure what I ended up with was the beautiful quilt I envisaged. The final product is spectacular and one I am sure will be handed down to generations. Thank you, Janet. You have helped us make a very very special wedding gift.
Designed by Janet, this quilt features a star surrounded by delectable mountains
Janet is a long-arm quilting genius. She makes sure you pick the proper design for your project and she's FUN ! I am thrilled with her work - as are all the people that see my quilt! Mary DeVries
Cat Quilt - by Trish
I first saw these patterns several years ago and I immediately wanted to make a quilt. I started collecting the patterns and even tried to make some of the blocks. I did not get the result I wanted because I always felt my skills were inadequate. Much practice, several classes and a quilt show on the horizon motivated me to try again. I was pleased with the results and even more pleased with Janet's quilting. I challenge the people looking at it to find the mice Janet has hidden in the quilting! I understand the sneaky lady has hidden 5 mice in the quilt. Good luck finding them!
Darlene's Love Links quilt
I fell in love with this pattern as soon as I saw it. Red is my favourite colour and this is the first quilt i have made just for myself. I love the dragonflies that Janet quilted in the border and on the red links.
