Patti teaches workshops on borders and binding and is in the process of developing a tool that facilitates cutting mitred corners on borders prior to assembling the quilt. Because of its softness, she often uses rayon for the backs of quilts and displayed a couple of scarves made from seven layers of rayon and chenilled. Patti recommends washing the rayon prior to using.
Another highlight was seeing Patti’s queen-sized “Deck the Halls” quilt made from Northcott’s 2019 Holiday Collection. This quilt will be featured in the December Issue of McCall’s Quilting magazine.
Patti finished her presentation with many clever arrangements of Stonehenge fabrics, and “Strip-R” fabric, Tropical Fusion, Noah’s Ark, Chloe, April Showers, and Arctic Snow.
If you are looking for Northcott fabrics, go to the Northcott Website (Northcott.com) and click on Product Finder. Once fabrics have been shipped to quilt shops, you can access information as to who will be receiving it.
One can also enter a “Block Party” contest. Follow the rules, quilt and bind your quilt, then send a picture to Northcott to qualify for a chance to win an 11 day trip to England and Stonehenge.
