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.

Amy's Alternate Routes from Night Owl Quilting

This is Amy's bold and beautiful version of the Highway 10 Designs Alternate Routes pattern.  Her fabrics have such great contrast that all of the hard work she did making lots and lots of HST really stands out!

When this quilt arrived in my studio there was a note attached asking if I had any backing fabric on hand that might work.  Lo and behold my bolt of blue Crackle wide backing from Northoctt matched perfectly!  I have a small selection of wide backs on hand to make it easy for my customers if they are stuck for a ...

City Slicker in Pinkerville from Tamarack Shack

Vicki made this fabulous quilt using our Highway 10 Designs City Slicker pattern.  She chose a Tula Pink jelly roll called Pinkerville and added grey Grunge for the background. 

I quilted it with the Flourish pantograph, grey So Fine thread and used Quilters Dream Blend batting.

On the weekend we went for a drive in the rain to look for wild pink Lady Slippers that grow in our area.  The blossoms don't last long and are so pretty. My friend Suzette gave me heads up on what road they were abundant along this year so we went to check ...

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 ...

Brave Enough to Dream Quarter Sections Quilt from Tamarack Shack

Now that I'm on my Christmas break I have been playing with a fun fat quarter bundle I purchased from Keystone Modern Creative called Brave Enough to Dream by Dear Stella.  I feel in love with this line because of its northern theme and polar bears.  I added a few brown blender fabrics to the bundle to make it 12 fat quarters and I pieced 3 baby Quarter Sections quilts with the 36 blocks made. 

I made 2 of these quilt using two layers of Dream poly batting and navy Cuddle backing.  I used white So Fine thread and ...

Pedal to the Metal in Simply Neutral 2 from Tamarack Shack

I'm not normally drawn to Black and White quilts but when I saw Northcott's new Simply Neutral 2 line on Keystone Modern Creative's website I had to order it!   I knew that I wanted to make our Highway 10 Designs patterns called Pedal to the Metal with this line as a few years ago I quilted a similar one for a friend that was fabulous.  You can see it here

I recently purchased a new pantograph called Time Warp that is very dense in design.  I hesitated at first with using it but thought this is my ...

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 ...

Cindy's Not Your Mother's Rail Fence 3.0 from Night Owl Quilting

Cindy sent me this crisp Not Your Mother's Rail Fence quilt.  I never get tired of quilting a pattern that is part of the Highway 10 Designs collection.  I know that Cindy enjoys making this pattern as I have quilt two for her in the past.  Check them out here and here.

Cindy thought she was probably going to donate this quilt so she left the panto and thread choice up to me.   I decided to "go for it" with the thread color and picked a bright blue-green that popped on the solids.  The panto is called "Dazzle" and ...

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 ...

King Size Quarter Sections from Night Owl Quilting

This fabulously rich quilt was made by Bonnie.  The pattern is our Highway 10 Designs Quarter Sections pattern.  Bonnie made the King size version with some additional borders and it came out to 102" x 126" - Bonnie has a few days of binding in her future, but it will be so worth it! You can see it on my Queen size bed below.

Bonnie fabric selection was mostly Orientals with a metallic highlight with a mix of batiks and cottons mixed in.  Bonnie selected the "Paisley" pantograph and I used my favorite Magnifico gold thread - 2063 Clover Honey.  It is ...

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 ...

Minnesota Stars from Night Owl Quilting

I recently had to opportunity to collaborate on a project with Jennifer from Needle Crafts and Studio.  Jennifer got in a great new line of fabric called Forest Jewels from Cloud 9 Fabrics and proposed using it to put together our Highway 10 Designs "Minnesota Stars" pattern.  

I was more than excited to use the palette that Jennifer selected. (I believe Jennifer has just a limited number of kits available in her shop.)

Here are a few close ups of the blocks.

I used a mustard colored thread for the quilting and the Flirtatious pantograph seemed to be the perfect ...

Dawn's Alternate Routes from Night Owl Quilting

I recently had the pleasure of quilting this gorgeous version of our Highway 10 Designs Alternate Routes quilt made by Dawn.  The batiks Dawn selected were vibrant and had great contrast to let all the hard work she did piecing this quilt shine.

The Alternate Routes pattern contains 20 layouts but the possibilities don't stop there.  Dawn and her son who will be recipient of this quilt decided on this layout together after she had made all the blocks.

Dawn asked for Quilter's Dream Puff batting and selected the Ebb & Flow pantograph.  The texture created by that combination ...

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.
