The following two quilts were made using a limited release strip set called the Weeping Willow Strip Set designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer, with Timeless Treasures.
The strips are Tonga Batiks, all with the same print, but in 20 different colors, with 2 of each strip included the package.
Stepping Stones was designed for all skill levels making this a fun and easy quilt for any beginner or advanced quilter to make up in just a few days. The pattern was republished in November of 2015.
Wisteria Lane, a very unique display of color introduced as a Chevron Wall Hanging, will add a splash of color to any Modern or Southwestern living décor as a Wall Hanging, Couch Throw, Table Topper or Bed Runner.
Lakeshore Batiks Collection
This next quilt features Lakeshore Batik fabrics which were designed around some of Northwest Montana’s most famous lake shores, where waters are a rich turquoise color, the glacial rock deposits are deep reds and purples and shine brightly in the clear mountain waters where wheat fields line the shore. Stay tuned for more beautiful quilts created using this bright collection.
The Lakeshore Sunrise pattern was designed after the Prismatic Star using the same techniques, adding a border, and setting the stage for a wide range of quilt sizes that feature the exploded lone star design. A circling flying geese block was designed to frame the exploded star and a large open background was added to showcase quilting designs.
Robert Kaufman Fabrics
The next quilts have been long awaited and were created using Robert Kaufman Collections.
The Southern Belles pattern was designed to feature our newest lone star technique using 1-inch diamonds to complete a 20″ block. We bordered the blocks with a very traditional antique quilt layout consisting of tiny spiked borders and floating stars. The quilt was designed with two different border options and two different sizes. The overall impact is a soft, vintage deep south quilt with no Y-seams, simple construction, only three different techniques, and will be available soon in expanded sizes. Digitized Quilting Designs are also available for this layout!
Southern Belles was created using the Penny and Friends fabric line, or choose your favorite line of vintage/reproduction fabrics!
Into the Northwoods
Into the Northwoods was designed around the Robert Kaufman Batik Collection, Northwoods. Robert Kaufman called us and expressed interest in our Glacier Pines quilt design, so we took advantage of this and started designing new 20″ blocks to fit in the center of the set-in borders. This pattern is first in a line of designs that will show different 20″ center designs, which will ultimately be published through our Charm Elements program, to mix and match and make your favorite layout.
