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
