These next few quilts are full of color. The longer that I work on other peoples’
quilts, the more I realize how much color affects me and how much I love it.
Lori Rose made this beauty for her daughter’s wedding; she actually made it
ahead of time and had it ready for the wedding. Way to go Lori Rose!!
I really love the colors of this quilt. And the dragonflies are gorgeous!! The fabrics are
Kaufman’s “Dance of the Dragonflies.” I looked all over the Internet and had a hard
time finding it. It is available on Amazon but it is a crazy amount.
Another colorful block. Hilde Morin makes fabric bowls and I wanted to make one
using this fabrics. After looking for weeks, I called Lori Rose and she graciously gave
me the leftover from this quilt. What a generous person she is! Thank you Lori Rose.
I will post pictures of the fabric bowl when it is completed.
This is the backing fabric. Again, the blue matches the intensity of the colors on the top
of the quilt. Lime green polyester So Fine thread was used for the top and the backing.
Dragonflies and hearts were stitched all over the quilt. Hope your daughter loved her quilt.
Northcott made this quilt for Quilt Market. I really like the colors too. I would never
have guessed that orange would become one of my favorite colors.
“Pick a modern design” is what I was told so I chose “Modernish” by Urban Elementz. It has
a fantastic website of quilting designs to choose from.
I used a variegated thread by Superior Threads for the top and the backing.
The backing of the quilt.
A close up of the back.
Another Northcott quilt. I love this quilt too. The lines, the colors, the pattern, all work
for me. What about you?
I was surprised to see that the black blocks on this quilt were fused on, I stitched around them
to ensure that they would not come off at all. It sure saves time to skip the piecing.
The Batiks in this quilt also speak to me. Too bad that there is not enough hours in
the day to create all that I like.
For the stitching, I used a monofilament-smoky color- to stitch around all the black squares. In
the white areas, I followed the lines on the printed fabric. In the grey areas, I stitched in straight
lines. The print on the fabrics was used as the quilting and stitching designs.
This is what the backing looks like.
A Batik was used on the back of the quilt too. So Fine and Superior Threads were used for the
quilt top. Check out The Needle and Thread Network.
