Northern Lights Quilt

Vicki pieced this lovely Northern Lights quilt using the Ombre Woven collection and pattern by V and Co.  I believe there was a box kit available for this quilt when it first came out.

I quilted it with the Tickle pantograph, used beige So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting

The backing was a bright orange blender fabric that worked so well with the colours of the quilt top.

North Star and City Blocks Quilts

 Robin made this lovely Queen sized North Star Quilt using a pattern by Missouri Star Quilt Co.  She pieced it using the same shade of blue in different prints with a white background.

I quilted it with the Ombre pantograph, used navy So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.

The second quilt Robin brought was the City Blocks quilt, pattern by Mountainpeek Creations. She used a blend of brown and teal fabrics to create this quilt.

I quilted it with the Square Spiral pantograph, used brown So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.

Dinosaur Petal Junction

Janice made this fun kids quilt using our Highway 10 Designs Petal Junction pattern.  She used a dinosaur flannel for the focus and then framed with Grunge in red, green, blue and yellow. The background is a beige Grunge as well. Out of the 3 layout options in the pattern she chose the Zig Zag layout plus added one 'X" section in the top right corner because she likes to mix it up a bit.

I quilted it with the Plush pantograph, used beige So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting. The backing is a dark green Cuddletex.

Not sure if you noticed but when the Zig Zag layout is used in this pattern an arrow shows up in the background.

Those Trees Quilt and The Craft Market

Finished quilting this modern 'Those Trees' quilt for Gail, pattern by Zen Chic.  She used Northcott Shimmer Radiance for the background and beautiful batiks for the trees.

 I quilted it with the Arrowful pantograph, used light beige So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.  Gail added the phases of the moon applique to the top left side.

She brought a lovely Stonehenge wide backing that matched perfectly.

Well I finally did my Craft Market last weekend and it went well.  The number of people visiting the market was less than expected but my sales were good.   Sold all my Cambridge waxed canvas bags, a kids quilt, some signs and Norfolk pouches.  So worth my time but I was pretty tired after two days. Think if I do another one I'll just find a one day market.

I don't think I shared the Cambridge Bags I made, the pattern is by Hammerstitch.   I made one large one and 5 smaller ones and they all sold. They have a zipper pocket on one side and pockets on the other side of the exterior.

I have been having fun shopping for fabric to line the bags. Even made my own cork labels with my logo on my husbands laser cutter.

This last one I made was a little more cheeky and used a lumberjack fabric for the lining and it sold to someone that really appreciated that detail.

Here was my set up.
