Piazza
Made with Northcott's Artisan Spirit Expressions collection.

I chose to fussy-cut portions from a panel to piece into the quilt. Most of the remaining panel is used for a colorful binding. The rest of the piecing is made with textured fabrics in beautiful gradations.

There is no complicated sewing; the positioning of color makes the statement! Size, 56" x 70"

Among last month's accomplishments were organizing the sewing room, cleaning out a closet, and putting the finishing touches on Sew Happy Again! "Again" is the key word. Perhaps you've seen the original Sew Happy, an applique project which is still available further down the page.

Northcott Fabrics has chosen to make the sewing machine motif into a panel as part of the "A Stitch in Time 2018" collection. The fabric will be available mid-May.

Sew Happy Again is immediately below as the newest pattern. And remember, it's a panel! So be happy, and enjoy these beautiful fabrics.

Newer patterns are available too. If you have any ideas about displaying the growing number of quilts on these pages please let me know ... .

It's certainly a beautiful time of year. At least in our far northern area it's hard to believe it will be green in just a week or two. Enjoy your Spring season!
