    This quilt, an achievement by Ms. Claudia Gass, from a pattern by Kim McLean, is simply magnificent. A quilt made with hexagons but configured in an unconventional way with bright colors, is eye-catching. This 89 inch square quilt is entirely pieced and appliquéd by hand. The quilting, performed by Karen Desparois, is in perfect harmony with the design of this quilt.

    Who is Claudia Gass? 

    Ms. Gass has always sewed, as much for herself as for her four daughters.   Her hobbies used to be ceramic, macramé and painting. Today, she prefers bridge, golf and making quilts which give her great joy. Since her retirement from teaching, she made over 70 quilts. The first were stitched by hand, then she decided to entrust this work to professionals such as Karen Desparois.

    Taking courses became an obsession for her; these have allowed her to eliminate certain techniques she didn’t enjoy any more. Because of her experience in teaching, she teaches quilting classes and finds it very rewarding when a student manages a perfect quarter-inch seam.

    She is a member of three guilds: West Island Quilters, Beaconsfield Quilters and Villa Quilters Hudson.
