New Baby Quilts


Valerie has added over a dozen new baby quilts to the website today. It can be difficult to find just the right baby quilt, but hopefully we've got you covered...

The One Year Baby Quilt

Recently, I was approached to make a quilt for a childs' first birthday. To celebrate the occasion in a very special way, the quilt was to be made from exactly 365 pieces - each representing one day of life in the child's first year. Such a lovely concept, not unlike candles on a birthday cake. :-)

To make a quilt like this, the pattern could be almost any combination of squares, rectangles or triangles... so long as the geometry balanced out to 365 parts. The fabric colour and prints would have to be the focal point, I mused, but one false step and the quilt could completely miss the point!

As always, the first step is combing through a great many fabrics to find just the right combination of colours and prints. Inevitably this leads to shuffling back and forth between piles of what works and what might work... In the end, you've just got to trust your creative instincts to take you down the right path.

Hopefully, the One Year baby quilt will stay in that special someone's heart for a long time - from their first birthday to possibly even their first child.

Spring Quilts

Mother nature needs a little reminder that it's Spring, judging by the light snow falling right now... This is a Lotus flower, hand painted on silk and quilted, from Valerie's days at OCA.



Bespoke Baby Quilts

Just a quick update to share this lovely baby quilt Valerie recently made for a great bunch of wonderful musicians. On the rear face are embroidered a few words for the intended recipient. If you'd like to know more about ordering a custom baby quilt, please contact Valerie and she'll answer all your questions.



Keep you Tea Pots Hot

It's freezing outside, but that doesn't mean you have to drink ice tea! Valerie's tea cosies have three different types of insulation which work together to keep the heat in and keep the cosy looking nice. More importantly, we have plenty of colours in stock! See all of PageQuilts latest tea cosies here.

I've collected quite a few prints in every imaginable colour for quilting - a necessary measure, any quilter will assure you. By total fluke, this past weekend's crossword somehow manifested a sea of blue; pen, tea cup & saucer, checkered blue table cloth and yes... a blue-hued tea cosy! Find your colour tea cosy here.

Quilting and Rock Stars, Well Sort Of...

As you wander through PageQuilts.com you might wonder about the 'little old lady' who makes each and every quilt herself. Her artist bio tells a lot, but not the whole story of Valerie's creative background...

Little known fact: Valerie once made a small mountain of stuffed rabbits for the Toronto music festival, North By North East (nxne.com) based on original artwork by Stephen Chester. Many of the stuffed rabbits Valerie made (nick-named "Sketchy" Rabbit by festival volunteers) left Canada to tour around the world with various indie bands, while one rabbit in particular featured in t-shirts and posters in subsequent NXNE years.

Here's Iggy Pop, holding one of the NXNE Rabbits Valerie designed and made!

One a Kind Christmas Show 2014

With the flurry of snow this week, I was quietly reminded that Christmas is indeed just around the corner. With One of a Kind Christmas Show starting this week things are hectic and hurried, but I've sewn up some really lovely baby quilts and on top of that, wrapping paper worthy Christmas stockings. There will be hand-knit Coffee cuffs for sale (otherwise available at Mercury Espresso) for $10 and plenty of different colours to choose from in quilted Tea Cosies.

One of a Kind runs Nov 27 - Dec 7th and my booth number this year is Y-35. I look forward to seeing you there!
