Joan bought this quilt kit, online, at Connecting Threads because
her daughter loves books and works in a library.
Isn’t it cool? The cream fabric has dates stamped all over it which
resembles the old fashioned way of taking books out of a library.
Joan wanted something swirly so we used the “Flirtatous” panto. It helps
give movement to the quilt.
I used a cream polyester thread for the top and a dark brown
polyester thread for the top.
If you look closely you can see some of Alex’s favorite authors and
book titles too. I thought that it would be appropriate to stitch
some of them into the spines of the books.
The backing is made up of circular books and looks pretty funky.
I had alot of fun with this one.
I am continuing to show you some more of the quilts that I worked on
for Northcott last month.
This one was really bright when I received it. Patti mentioned using an
all over design (or panto) so I chose Quirky as my design. It is very
circular in design and I chose it to add some movement to the top
It has alot of straight lines and very bright colors so I wanted
something to soften it a little.
Here is a close up of the stitching on the top. I used a variegated
thread with lots of reds, oranges and yellows in it. If I remember
correctly, it had a cream backing. Yes, it was only a month ago but
alot has transpired within that time frame. There are still a few more
of the Northcott quilts to show but you will have to wait patiently
until next week.
Have a great week and happy quilting.
