FIGO’S New Line…

Northcott’s new modern division, Figo, has just released another new line.

I had the privilege of quilting some of their  quilt for this new line.

Just a side note, I do not receive any compensation for posting this on my blog;

I thought that you might enjoy seeing the new fabrics and some of the new

patterns.

I’m unsure of who designed the quilt pattern and   fabrics. I do try to keep track

of all of this pertinent information for you but not this time. I will work on this

for future reference.

The backing fabric. Karlee Porter designed the orange peel motif that was

stitched all over the quilt top. A clear monofilament thread was used for the

top of the quilt and matching polyester thread for the backing.

Whenever I use a Karlee Porter motif, the motif needs to be redesigned

in my digital program, Creative Studio 7, from Gammill, so that the motifs

are quilted tightly together.

A Modern Wave

This quilt has a design stitched onto it that is called “Modern Wave” by

Anita Shackelford. She digitally designs alot of quilting patterns; this one is

amongst one of my favorites. It’s so cool to watch it being stitched out and to

even look at it later, as it looks like there are actual moving waves on a stationary

quilt.

Nova Star Quilt

Then Came June created this Nova Star Quilt. Alot of piecing involved but beuatiful when

completed.

Cactus backing fabric

The backing fabric is covered in cactus.Glad the fabric is soft and not prickly.

Circles were quilted all over these hexagons. I love all the stitching: it creates

so much texture. And I love texture!!

 

The backing fabric has cats all over it. For all those cat lovers out there, you will

love this new line.

Tessa Quilt

The color orange is really beginning to grow on me. This quilt is very cheery and makes

me happy just looking at it. Don’t we all need a shot of happiness right now?

Kitchen Table Quilting designed this quilt.

The backing fabric is cheerful as well.

Modern Squares

“Solistice Lights” by Cotton + Joy is the name of this quilt. Monofilament thread was used on the

front and matching thread again, on the backing.

I could go for an ice cream cone right now. r

The backing fabric looks like alot of fun. Take a closer peek and you will

see people swimming in the water.

 

This quilt was designed by Pen +Paper Patterns.  The title of the quilt is “Fresh As A Daisy.

Christina wanted straight line quilting, which I love, and the end result is texture.

The backing

The Mary Quilt was designed by Kitchen Table Quilting. She has designed alot of quilts.

The backing fabric is full of flowers too. A grid was stitched all over the quilt top.

I actually designed it myself. I am getting a little braver these  days and trying out some

new ideas. It’s not as scary as I thought it was. Maybe it’s time for you to try some

new things too.

Hope you have a good week.

 

 

 

Two Weeks In A Row….

I’m on a roll by posting pictures on my blog, two weeks in a row.

As promised, here are some of the modern quilts that I quilted for Figo, for

Quilt Con, several weeks ago.I think this quilt is called Paper Cuts byThen

Came June.

The backing was very bright; you can see the stitching really well.

I used a monofilament thread on the top and matching thread for the

backing.

Christina made  this quilt in the summer; she wanted lots of

straight line quilting. There are two separate blocks in this quilt so

I decided to quilt two separate designs in the blocks.

Straight lines were quilted across all of the background fabric.

Once again, a monofilament thread was used for the top of the

quilt and a matching thread for the backing.

The backing fabric was interesting.

 

This quilt is called Stellar Mosiacs. Not quite sure who designed it,

sorry, I forgot to write down the designer.

The quilting design used is Mosiac  Circle Star by Urban Elementz.

The backing of the fabric, I love the blue fabric used here.

Angie’s Quilt

Angie made this quilt for a special someone. She wanted swirls quilted

all over the quilt top. I used a white Omni polyester thread for the top

and the backing.

Quilt Top

The backing of the fabric shows off the quilting beautifully.

Joyce made this huge quilt. It measured in at 107 x 104. I think that

it’s the biggest quilt that I have quilted.

The center of the quilt. The fabrics used in this quilt is gorgeous!!!

I quilted an overall design called “Water  World” by Willow Leaf STudio.

The backing of the quilt.

I am still working on my daughter’s quilt, by Elizabeth Hartman.

It is called “Desert Delights.”  It is sewing up quickly but it doesn’t help that

I keep making silly mistakes.

Have a good week.
