My Canada Home Quarter from Night Owl Quilting

Lorraine made this lovely version of the Highway 10 Designs' Home Quarter quilt from a kit she purchased at Keystone Modern Creative.  The fabrics are from Northcott's "My Canada" line.

Lorraine selected the Maple Syrup Pantograph for a very fitting finish.

If you have a fat quarter bundle lying around, Home Quarter is a great pattern.  The large pieces let you enjoy the fabrics you fell in love with, and it is easy to manage directional prints as well.  Sizes from lap to king are included.

Bloom Bouquet II – Quilt 2

I am getting ready to go visit my mom in Brazil and wanted to leave you with a few ideas for projects – you know, someone has got to be quilting if I can’t!

The first quilt I wanted to show you is Quilt 2 that I designed for the Bloom Bouquet II fabric collection by Blank Quilting. This collection is bright, fun, and will be coming to stores in September. The ...

Fat quarter quilt patterns I love for Spring from Pieced Brain

Fat quarter quilt patterns I love for Spring

Gather some precuts to make these two fat quarter quilt patterns I love: a modern quilt and one with machine applique flowers to welcome Spring.

“Spring Dance” was just published in the Late Spring 2021 issue of Quilter’s World magazine, and also in the Fat-Quarter Friendly Quilts publication. These colors are so beautiful! They are from the Balboa collection by Sherri & Chelsi for Moda Fabrics.

It measures 54″ x 70″ and the blocks finish at 12″ and 4″. It comes together super fast so it is a fun weekend project. If you are a beginner quilter, this pattern is ...

Val's Stash Busting Home Quarter from Night Owl Quilting

Val made this cheerful queen sized version of our Highway 10 Designs Home Quarter pattern entirely from her stash.  As Home Quarter calls for Fat Quarters, Val cut some fat quarters from larger yardage, and used existing fat quarters and other scraps to build this beautiful quilt.

Val requested the Bora Bora pantograph and I think it looks great. A goldish brown thread was my choice to subtly live on the wide variety of colors and the border.

If you have some fat quarters and yardage in your stash just waiting for the perfect project, you could follow Val's ...

Amy's Washboard Road from Night Owl Quilting

This is Amy's amazing version of our new Highway 10 Designs Washboard Road quilt pattern.  Amy chose a navy background that sets off the colours of the Ombre Confetti Metallic jelly roll just perfectly.

Amy selected the Oasis pantograph and I used a shiny navy Magnifico thread.  I haven't used this pantograph a lot, but I really like how it looks and have to remember it more often.

I quilted this quilt, but it took a little detour through Emo, Ontario so Kathy could take some more photos for Highway 10 Designs before it returned home to Amy ...

Sherry's Embelished Home Quarter from Night Owl Quilting

Sherry used the Highway 10 Designs Home Quarter pattern for the basis of this quilt and took it up a notch by adding an applique panel.  My last two posts also contained Home Quarter quilts, and it still amazes me how much fabric choices change the look of a pattern.

Sherry sent a note along with the quilt suggesting an all over stipple for the quilting design and an outline around the applique.  I know Sherry quite well and I know that she prefers threads that blend, so I suggested treating the border and panel differently than the body of ...

True North Home Quarter from Night Owl Quilting

Kristine made this lovely version of Home Quarter by Highway 10 Designs.  The fabric colleciton is called True North by Kate and Birdie for Moda.  I am looking forward to True North 2 that will be coming to quilt stores later this fall.

Kristine selected the Maple Syrup panto (Perfect right?) and red thread.  Choosing red is always a bit scary as it can sometimes be stronger than you want, but it just enhanced the top. She used a lovely grey flannel on the back and I used a grey thread in the bobbin to match.

Home Quarter is a ...

My Home Quarter from Night Owl Quilting


This is going to be a bit of a unique post.  I made this Home Quarter quilt top, but I did not do the longarm quilting!  I made this top at a Highway 10 Designs retreat earlier this year (remember quilting retreats?) that Kathy and I hosted at Keystone Modern Creative.  The fabric was a bundle of fat quarters in the Libbs Elliot Tattooed North line.  I didn't have a plan for the quilt so it went onto my "to be quilted" stack.

This spring I participated in a quilt-a-long and won a super generous prize of a $200 ...

Amy's Home Quarter from Night Owl Quilting

This fabulous lap quilt was made by Amy.  The pattern is Home Quarter by Highway 10 Designs.  I tell you it never gets old quilting a top made from a pattern I was a part of writing!

Amy said the fabric was a pretty Fat Quarter bundle she picked up at Fabriculous, that had been sitting on a shelf tied with a pretty ribbon awhile.  She added a pretty purple linen for the outer border.  Amy was hoping I would have a backing that would work, and my last piece of this beige and caramel Stonehenge was the perfect size ...

Audrey's Quarter Sections from Night Owl Quilting

 I had the pleasure of quilting Audrey's version of our Highway 10 Designs Quarter Sections quilt.  Audrey had a vision for this quilt that influenced everything from her color palette to the quilting design that she chose.

Audrey shared that to her the center of the quilt represents the fields flourishing and in fallow.  The outer border is the highway running alongside and the inner border is the ditch between.  After hearing this I knew fancy feathery border was not what this quilt needed!  Audrey opted for the Breath of the gods pantograph which perfectly adds the touch of ...

Reneta's Home Quarter Lap Quilt from Night Owl Quilting

This is the second Home Quarter quilt that Reneta has completed since Highway 10 Designs released the pattern in October.  She is looking in her stash for more fat quarters to cut up as it goes together fast and is fun to make.

Reneta made the large lap size that uses 16 fat quarters and finishes at 71" x 71".   She pulled a bundle from her stash and added a few bonus pieces.

We used the Gingersnap pantograph and Quilter's Dream blend batting.

This Highway 10 Designs pattern is available in PDF download or paper format on our website ...

Reneta's Home Quarter Queen Size Quilt from Night Owl Quilting

Reneta made this spectacular Highway 10 Designs Home Quarter Quilt.  She had a fabulous bundle of Moda's Grand Canal by Kate Spain languishing on a shelf and decided to put it to very good use.

Reneta used 36 fat quarters to make this generously sized Queen that measures 101" x  101" 

We decided on the Tickle pantograph in a shiny turquoise Magnifico thread.

I'm glad I was able to get some good photos of this quilt, but it wasn't easy!  Most of my day was spent battling the prairie wind.

The Home Quarter pattern is available in ...
