Northport is HERE!


Northport fabric is in shops now - or in my case...... will be here on Friday.  I hope to spend all weekend cutting into it.





There will be a few kits of Leo to send out...... we have them here if you are interested.

Leo is actually quite easily pieced. The 4 pieced blocks are strip pieced and go together quite quickly.  The applique border is made with a bias maker for the vine and Karen Kay Buckley Perfect Circle templates for the flowers.  All your edges are automatically turned under so the applique is quick too.

Per usual, I am one or two fabric collections ahead of you.  The Mackinac Island quilts ( Honor and the Derby House Block of the Month) will be back from Maggi this weekend and I'll be sewing on bindings.  And...... I'm starting to think about quilts after that........... My husband Bill is helping with some challenging drafting.  He is a retired cabinet maker and he still has a ruler, tape measure, and pencil within hands reach - at all times.


Laters,

Laurie

Hi, Laurie! I'm hoping you can help me! I'm in the midst of making the Northport Seaside quilt with the Moda kit and I'm having an issue. I'm at the point where I'm adding the 3" HST's to the little 4-patch units and, according to the pattern, the new unit should finish at 3 1/2". Mine finish at 4". The pattern doesn't say anything about trimming them down but maybe that's what I'm supposed to do. The HST's seemed too big so I thought maybe a step was left out and tried cutting them in half again - but that resulted in a 3 1/8" units. I've set the whole thing aside until I can figure out where I went wrong and how best to resolve it. Should I trim down the finished blocks or trim down the HST's (and if so, to what?)? To match the sashing that I've cut per the pattern, they do need to be 3 1/2".
Thanks for any help you can provide!

PS - A Polka Dots & Paisleys charm pack that I stumbled across several years ago is what hooked me into quilting. I didn't really know what to do with it (I only bought one) but it eventually became a table runner. It's still one of my all-time favorite collections!
