Last week, I showed you several of the quilts I quilted for Northcott.
Here are the remaining quilts that I completed as well.
To be quite honest, I really didn’t know what to do with this panel.
I decided to leave it until last, hoping that something inspiring would
Nothing dramatic popped into my head so I quilted squares in the
I used a white Omni polyester thread for the top and the backing.
In the houses, I stitched in some curtains and straight lines to hold
the fabric in place so it wouldn’t pop up in that area.
The backing always shows off the texture beautifully. I love the solid

I love, love, love the colors in this quilt. It looks like fun to
me so I tried to immulate that feeling with the motifs that I chose
for the background fill.
Swirls were chosen for the background fill because they look like
fun to me.
Modern was also the theme that I wanted to include so I
stitched around the colorful squares and added the loops. The
loops almost look like flowers to me.
In the grey star area, I wanted to draw attention to them so
I used straight lines in the background area.
I love the circles on the backing. You really can’t see the
stitching but it is fun too.
This is the last quilt that I stitched. I love this wallhanging as well.
I love the colors and the shapes.
I stitched around the large circles and outlined the large
circles with more circles. It seems that circles were the main
attraction on this quilt top.
I added straight lines in the white background, as I didn’t
want to draw too much attention to the background. I also
changed the direction in which the straight lines were
stitched so that interest would be created.
All the circles around the stars were stitched freehand. I was
nervous when I began stitching them but thought; ” What the
heck, I’ll give it a try.”
In the triangles, I stitched a quick arc because you can’t really
see the stitching so why put alot of detail into that area?
The borders were very easy to design. Just use the straight
lines and arches that were printed onto the fabric. Easy peasy.
Here you can see all the yummy texture on the backing.
How can you not love this?
The border areas show off the straight line stitching.
One of the stars and all those circles around the stars.
The straight lines are cool and I love the one triangle in the
background fill. A white Omni polyester thread was used for
the top and the backing.
Here is a postcard I received from Judy Stupak; she is
hosting a postcard exchange each month. This is the
postcard for September’s theme: “Back To School.’
I love it. It resembles a blackboard and practice writing on it
and of course, the kids in the classroom.
Have a great week.
