Recent Quilt Top finishes


I was asked to make a quilt top with some fabrics that recently arrived at the quilt store (where I use to work at, it seems).

Some of the fabric collection that recently arrived is called Quest For A Cure - Cambridge Square - Brown from Northcott. I had 2187-99,2190-34,2191-99,2193-30, 2193-34, and from a different collection, of Northcott called Stonehenge, to work with.

So, with those fabrics all stacked up on each other, I went out in search of pattern book at the store that would do the fabrics justice.

Well I came across a pattern that I thought was just PERFECT for the theme of the fabric - Quest for A Cure. The pattern of the quilt top is called, My Sister's Cabin.

"My Sister's Cabin" is from a book called Blackberry Island - Gathering Friends, by Kathryn Squibb and Deborah Jacobs ©2004. I had a heck of a time looking for a link to their site. But I did find it else wheres - Blackberry Island.


I absolutely love how it turned out, and the colors! I had a challenge as the pattern was written with different colors, so I had to have a cheat sheet to make sure I had the correct fabrics in the correct spot.

I actually finished this quilt 2 weeks ago, and it was shown at the recent quilt show in Iron River, MI over the weekend.

Also, I came home with this Northwoods Flannel Print. So I whipped it up into a quilt top.

I was having a duh moment when I pieced the borders on. I had the border blocks in the wrong spots..LOL But they are all fixed now.



I love making these quilt tops for the shop, and I will eventually get them back after the fabric has run out, or its time to make new quilt tops. Cause I came home with Tribeca, and I can't wait to finish it.. he he
