Recently, I quilted several quilts for Northcott, for an upcoming
Show. So, this is a sneak peek for all of you who did not go to the
This year the trend seems to be going towards printed panels.
There are 2 panels sewn together to make one quilt. It is less
time consuming for sure.
Northcott wanted an overall design for one of the quilts.
I chose something swirly -named “Flirtatous.” It adds some
movement to the top.
In the border area, there are some cool vintage sewing
I used a grey variegated So Fine Superior Thread -a 40 weight
for the top and the backing.
The backing was covered in buttons, very fitting for
this printed panel quilt.
The second quilt, is the exact same printed panel but
in a different color way. This time, I could play and
stitch any design I wanted onto the top.
I love the straight lines around these blocks. On the fabric,
there were all sorts of rulers so I just picked a shape and
stitched around it. In the block border, each block has
a little bit of stitching as well.
On the sides of the borders, there are a few blocks that
look pieced but are again,printed. I really like the
words in the border area.
It was quite interesting to see how different, besides the
color difference, these 2 quilts were when completed.
Again, buttons on the back of the quilt.
This beauty belongs to Bethanne Nemesh. I had the
opportunity to take a class with her this past week.
And yes, I did ask permission to take photos of her
quilts, at The Quilting Bee, in Fonthill, Ontario.
This woman is very talented, smart, creative and witty.
I had a great time too and hopefully learned lots in the
Some close ups of her wholecloth quilt. If you ever get
the chance to take one of her classes, you will not be
disappointed at all.
Have a great week and enjoy the warm sunshine, here in
