I just wanted to thank everyone there for helping me with my projects. Last year my mom bought me a Passport 3.0 and I found your store. I signed up for a bag class and the binding class which both got cancelled. You helped me choose fabric for all of

these projects and answered my questions over the phone. I just wanted to show you the finished projects and to say THANK YOU. You are not the closest shop to me by far, but you are the best so I travel to you. I am so glad I found you. With gratitude, Kelly
A continuing thank you for keeping my book on your website. I still get orders from it. For example, this week I got three! Thanks again.
Also here are the pictures that I didn't attach the other day.
The elephant is from a course at QP. The dinosaur is mostly from my head and uses basement fabric. The unicorn is my mind gone crazy and a pic from a colouring book. L

Thought I’d share a photo of a quilt I made using the beautiful Moody Bloom fabric that you carry + the backing/ batting. I was dreaming of spring! This a queen - mystery project - pattern design by Melissa Marginet - fm quilted in swirls.

My Canada quilt was Inspired by Diane Milani’s 1998 pattern ´Windows Across Canada ´. However, I added Nunavut, which became a Territory after 1998. I also did appliqué instead of paper piecing and added decorative stitches. It was necessary to take two pictures to include Ontario and Québec on the bottom. I hope you like it!

When I picked up my order this morning for some more of the Robert Kaufman ombre fabrics - which I adore - I was saying that I had previously used a number of them to make myself a tablecloth. It was my first foray into graffiti quilting but I was pretty happy with the results. In case you would like to add this to your gallery, I've attached a photo of the finished quilt in situ as well as a close-up of one of the happy details.
Thank you to Quilty Pleasures for doing so much to maintain the sanity of so many quilters in these trying times. A day without creating something is such a wasted day.

When i bought this pattern, you mentioned not having had a chance to see it yet, so i thought you might appreciate my version of it.
Have a great weekend.

I wanted to share my finished quilt with you. I absolutely love the fabrics you helped me pick out recently. This is my third quilt and my first HST quilt. I had a bit of a learning curve. :)
Also, attached is my first baby quilt (navy & white) which you also assisted me with back in 2019. This was an abstract design that I created.
Thank you for your help. You have great taste. :)

Here is a quilt top I made on a virtual retreat last month. Julie helped me select some of the fabrics. Susan
Please find attached my finished quilt!
I started the quilt with you in class session just before Covid-19 restrictions and lockdowns.
I am very glad I had this project to do during those lockdowns. It’s very cool to see the final product. My son loves it.
Thanks lots to the support from Quilty Pleasures.
Till the next course

Vic 2021 - Kitty Quilt
Heres something that I did a few years back. Took the remaining blocks of a quilt and made a kitty quilt which sits on a kitty bed. Yes the cat has her own bed. It was practice when I got the Amibiton Pfaff 155 machine. Enjoy! Vic
CathyN 2021 - Quilty Pleasures
Cathy made an embroidered QP!
It later became part of a whole quilt!
Thanks to your curb side pick up and terrific website I have been able to work on and improve my quilting skills during the pandemic. I recently made a quilt from a friend's student nursing uniforms (she graduated in 1964). The uniforms were all pink but several shades as they were so old and had been laundered and bleach many times. I was able to match the colours from your website and she and I are both pleased with the results. Am attaching photos - front and back, a bag to store it and the bits made a patchwork teddy. Again thanks so much for being there.
Best wishes, joan

I just wanted to share my finished quilt. I started my first quilting class at Quilty Pleasures in Jan/Feb 2020. Taught by Valerie. We were several weeks in when the Covid Pandemic was declared and classes had to be stopped. Little did we know then that it would still be going on up to now. I continued to work on it at home off and on. During which we had a big move from Orleans back home to Nova Scotia. My hand-me-down sewing machine died. I invested in a new one. Picked it up again to finish it after all the new home projects were done. I finally finished and washed and dried it last night!
It’s not perfect, but it’s mine and I’m very happy with it! It makes me smile, and it’s so cosy! It was originally called my Christmas Quilt. But I’ve decided to name it my “Pandemic Quilt” since it took me all of 2020, 2021 until the start of 2022 to finish it! So now that it’s finished I hope it’s a sign that the pandemic will be finished soon as well!
Thank you for being such an awesome first quilt shop, instructor, staff and fellow learners to me! I miss your shop, and have yet to find one here that I love as much as Quilty Pleasures.
Stay safe, Pamela M
Pamela M 2022 Pandemic Quilt
The Cotton Boll block is one of my favourites. I have used it four times in my quilts - twice in my Baltimore Album quilts, once in a quilt at the Shirley Greenberg Women's Health Centre at the Riverside Hospital, and now this one. The block dates back to the 19th century, but somehow it seems quite
modern to me.
In early March 2020, when things were not going well, I decided it would be a good idea to start a project that would keep me busy for quite a while if we were to have to curtail our activities. I ordered the fabric for the quilt top by phone from Quilty Pleasures.
Over a period of 18 months, I spent more than 1100 hours working on this quilt. It is hand-appliquéd using the back basting method and hand-quilted.
