Ultimate Beginner Quilt x 2! from Night Owl Quilting

 


I recently had the opportunity to help two sisters finish quilts that they made "together" while apart during Covid restrictions.  They followed the Ultimate Beginner Quilt Sew Along by the Fat Quarter Shop.  It includes free block patterns along with You Tube videos to guide you.  Above is Crystal's quilt.  Below is Marja-liisa's.

I have to say that at first I didn't realize that they were made from the same pattern as the fabric selections and layout differences really make them look different.


This is only Crystal's second quilt and she selected the gingersnap pantograph.



Marja-lissa ...

Pretty in Purple from Night Owl Quilting

 

This pretty purple quilt was made by Heather.  She adapted a table runner pattern called "Pomegranate Rose" from the book "The Versatile Nine Patch" into a full quilt. 



There is a phenomenal amount of piecing in each block!   I don't think I would have made it past 3 blocks, let alone 28!


Heather chose the Gingersnap pantograph and I used a pretty purple So Fine thread.  I love the fun backing Heather used as this quilt is for a very young girl.

Ginger Snap from Night Owl Quilting

  

When Karen dropped this lovely quilt off on my porch,  I didn't know what was inside the bag.  In Manitoba, we are currently under "Code Red" Covid restrictions so I can't have anyone besides household members inside my house.  When I unfolded the quilt top and saw the one unique block I wondered if there was a story or something that prompted that design choice?


Karen made this quilt in the colors of the last family rabbit Mister Collins who hopped on to heaven in June.  The corner square was included to denote his love of gingersnaps and ...

Animal Hugs Quarter Section from Night Owl Quilting


Reneta made this absolutely adorable baby quilt using the Quarter Sections pattern by Highway 10 Designs. Did you know that all you need is 5 fat quarters and 3/4 yard of border fabric to make this top that measures a generous 39" x 45"?!?


Reneta chose the Gingersnap pantograph to complete the look. 


The fabric line that Reneta used is Animal Hugs by 3Wishes Fabrics.  The prints are so cute!

  

The next time you are in need of a fast and fun baby quilt think of Quarter Sections.

It's Good to Be Square from Night Owl Quilting



This is Val's rich batik "It's Good to Be Square" quilt.  Pattern is by A Quilter's Dream.


Val selected the Gingersnap pantograph and Quilter's Dream puff batting.


The backing piece that Val had on had was slightly bigger than the quilt top, but not the 8" larger that I require to load onto my longarm.  To solve this issue, Val added some scrap fabric leader and ender to the backing to give me the length I needed.  This fabric did not end up on the back of the quilt but allowed Val to use that "almost ...

Karen's Memory Quilts from Night Owl Quilting




I recently had the privilege of quilting three very special quilts for Karen. Karen made three unique memory quilts for her sisters out of their father's shirts.


The first one based on the Crossroads quilt block, got the London Fog pantograph.







The second one got the Gingersnap pantograph.





The third one, based on the "Chandelier 2 " pattern got the Plush pantograph.



When Karen came to pick up the quilts she brought along the labels she had made, and I think they are awesome.  She used the shirt collars in the most creative way.  Each of her sisters selected a ...
