Quilt Market- pt 2

Here are the remaining pictures of some of the quilts I completed

for Northcott and Quilt Market.

Flights of Fancy by Christine Stainbrook of Project House 360

Even though this quilt was pretty small, it was fun to work on.

I SID around all the flying geese, stars and straight lines. Once

that was completed, the fun could begin.

The stars were outlined on the inside edge 1/4″ and then filled in

with a nice swirl. A variegated thread was used for this quilting so

that it would add some interest to the stars. The flying geese had the

the same thread used on them as well.

In the white sections, I used a white Glide thread (40wt) for the

straight lines.  This quilt felt modern so thus the reason for the

straight lines.

Back of the quilt. I used a 40 wt white thread for the backing.

Christine Stainbrook of Project House 360 also

designed this quilt “Oasis.”

It is pretty funky. The first order of business with me is to

complete the SID. Once this boring but oh so important step

is completed, then the fun can begin.

I quilted in the all the wavy lines in the center panel and then

straight lines were added in the colorful border. I used a variegated

thread for the colorful strips and the flying geeese. In the

black sections, I used a 40 wt black embroidery thread. It is very

thin and works well on these quilts.

The backing is very neat. I used a black 40 wt thread here as well.

This little baby is a printed  panel. How cool is that? Even though

it is small, it still sucks up alot of time to complete.

In the background section, I quilted in swirls and circles-thanks

to Judi Madsen. The flower petals received half circles and the

blue/cream sections-straight lines.

The circles also received half circles.

Using the same motifs on the quilt helps to unify it.

The inner cream border was divided up into 2″ squares and then

straight lines and arcs were stitched in.  The border is one of my

favorite parts of this quilt.

The outside border received  double straight lines, kind of like a

frame. The only problem with that, is that the border now buckles

a little due to the fact that all the other sections of the quilt were

heavily quilted and this section was not. I would do this differently

if I could.

The backing.

This fabric looks really rich. I love it!

I used a light brown 40 Metro thread for the backing.

Another section of the backing. I used 3-4 different shades of 40 wt

Metro thread. The thread colors were a light cream, medium browny

gold and a tan color. For the aqua blue/greeny border, I used a

Sulky variegated thread.

Cream and aqua quilt.

I am unsure of who designed this quilt but I absolutely love the

colors in this quilt. The batteries in my camera died the morning I was

taking pictures of this quilt so I only have the before picture of this

one. Sorry guys.

I quilted around every shape in this quilt. In the outside aqua border,

I quilted in straight lines and then filled in every other with the

matchsticks design. It took me 4 hours just to do the outside

border. It did look good when done though.

I quilted in some modern feathers( in the style of Angela Walters)

in the triangle areas around the pinwheels.  In the open spaces,

I added some squares. It helped to fill in some empty space and

it took me less time to do the  background fill. The background

fill consisted of  circles and straight lines.

I used a 40 wt Glide cream thread and a variegated aqua thread for

the outside border. Again, I apologize for the absence of pictures.

Have a great week

    I’m going to do the Oasis quilt on the Oct 2015 blog. I bought the same backing you used – colorful pennants on black background. How did you piece the back as it seems nothing matches in a repeat?
    Thanks so much. I can’t get started till I figure this out.
