Welcome Blogathon Canada!

Hi, my name is Audrey. I live in St. Catharines, Ontario. I am a wife and a mom of 2 teenage boys. I am a teacher by day and quilter by night. 

I am also an avid blog reader and write weekly/monthly blogs. I am thrilled to be a part of Blogathon Canada! I blog to keep a record of the things I have accomplished and to have goals to strive for each week/month. I find it keeps me organized and focused. I love reading blogs to see the wonderful works of fellow quilters.

I am a relatively new quilter. I purchased a used long arm machine, which I named Glory Be, just over a year ago. Previous to that I had only had started piecing and making quilts for 3 years, although I have known how to sew since I was 10 yrs old.

I started quilting because my sister and mom quilt. I also thought it would be nice to make lap quilts for my 9 nieces and nephew when they turn 16 yrs old.

I love the whole process of quilting and have even started to offer long arm quilt services to family and local quilters. My business is called Glory Be Quilting Niagara. My goal is to offer reasonable prices and use the opportunity of owning a long arm to help people get those WIPs off their list and into the done pile. I also want to give back to the community by quilting for local charities. I do this through the LQS (local quilt shop). This group chooses a charity to quilt for. The ladies make the tops and bottoms of these quilts and I get the opportunity to put them together on my long arm. I am also part of a church group that makes prayer quilts. I quilt and offer my long arm services to complete these prayer quilts.

Here are pictures of a sample of quilts I have completed.


Here are some of the community charity quilts I have completed on the long arm.

Here are a couple recent commissioned customer baby quilts.

Adding to my quilting skills, I recently picked up needle turn appliqué in Maui, Hawaii. I love this dimension I have added to my quilting repertoire. It has made me try custom quilting on my long arm as well. Here are a few samples of recent blocks that I have done.


Thanks for stopping by my blog. Please visit the other blogs in the Blogathon Canada tour.
