As promised, I do have pictures of the new line that Northcott is coming
out with. I must warn you though, they are very enticing.
This is a digitally printed fabric; it is a part of the new line that was revealed this
past weekend, at Quilt Market, in Houston. And you are getting your own
private viewing. Yeah, I am going a little overboard.
Because 2 of the quilts were the same, except for the color, I chose to
quilt them differently.
For this green colorway, I interpreted the quilt as having fallen leaves on the
forest floor, so I quilted in pine needles as the background filler. I only came
up with this idea after taking a walk and racking my brain for ideas.
This is also a digitally printed fabric that looks like marble or granite.
I am seriously thinking that I have to get my hands on some of this
I also love this table runner; So simple yet effective.
A Magnifico Thread was used for the top background filler. I used a
monofilament thread to do all the SID (stitch in the ditch).
Because leaves were the theme of this particular line, I thought of rocks,
pine needles, wind, and pebbles as the background fillers.
This is the backing of the tablerunner. Again, I love the leaves, the color gradations,
and the stitching.
More close up and texture .
This is the same quilt but only in a different colorway. This is my
favorite piece and colors .
For this quilt, I thought of the wind blowing through all the leaves so
I quilted in swirls through the middle of the quilt.
In the outer areas of the quilt, I quilted in rocks so it resembles leaves on the
Here is a close up of the rocks I stitched in the top.
More swirls to represent the wind blowing through the leaves.
The backing. I am totally in love with this color gradation!!
A close up of the stitching on the backing. So, what do you think of this
This is what I am working or right now. The blue carrots are really
stretching me; I have to admit that I will be happy when this one is
finished. Still wondering how I will quilt this one up.
Have a great week and check out

I thought I recognized the fabric. It is Helene Knott’s first line of fabric. 🙂
It is enticing indeed and I adore the leaves!
Such beautiful quilting on those leaf quilts!! Makes me want to work on a leaf quilt of my own.
