Joyce Evanishen
I live in the beautiful Okanagan Valley of British Columbia and have been quilting for over 20 years. I do a variety of quilting and quilt sizes from bed-sized quilts, lap quilts, and my favourites, baby quilts. I also do a lot of appliqueing on wall hangings and baby quilts. I do my own piecing and quilting on my domestic Janome machine. Most of my work has been traditional quilting. However, I have been exploring with some modern-style quilting. I belong to a Fiber Art group and won a Rosette for a Canadian Quilter Guild challenge in 2010.
My home is scent-free and smoke-free.

The quilt, Brightly Woven, arrived. It is even more visually arresting than I thought it would be; it is beautiful! - CA Stumpf, B.C., Canada

I was thrilled with the whole process. Even though I did not give Joyce much time, the quilt, Double Wedding Ring, was completed on time and is exquisite!". - LB, Canada

For sale with permission of designer/publisher.

 
Forest Wildfires
Size: 38 x 46 Inches (Wall Size)
Description: This striking wall hanging is made of variations of the classic New York Beauty quilt block. The inspiration for this quilt was the summer of 2009 (and many years since) when our province was ablaze with forest fires. The green circles starting with the yellow through to the red represent the fire destroying our trees. The gray is the smoke and ash created by the fires. The charcoal border depicts the aftermath of the burnt forest floor and trees. The background has subtle shadings of gray.
There is a hanging sleeve. The label on the back includes a description of the inspiration for the quilt, a color picture of the front of the quilt, and the quiltmaker's name and date made. This information (the quilt's provenance) is valued by collectors and adds value to the piece over time.
Technique: Paper Pieced. Machine Quilted.
Fabrics: 100% Quilters Quality Cotton & Batiks
Batting: Cotton/Poly - 80/20
Care: Hand wash. Lay flat to dry. May require gentle pressing.
