2 designs to inspire you to make more creative quilt borders

 

So far this week, I’ve shown you 3 different panels quilts using Northcott Sandscapes fabrics and panels: Canyon Cliffs, Mountain Peak and Pumpkins for Sale. Today, I’ll show you what other talented Northcott designers created using panels together with Northcott Sandscapes fabrics to add that extra depth I talked about yesterday.

Here’s Canyon Sunrise/Mountain Sunset by Wanda Milankov.

The quilts I highlighted here today are a great place to start if you’re looking for quilt design ideas. What’s better is using your own creativity to explore all the possibilities for the Northcott Sandscapes fabrics and panels to make your quilts your own. Enjoy the process.

Be sure to look for these fabrics in your favorite quilt shops. I’m sure you’ll enjoy using this wonderful Northcott collection with its great variety of colors and metallic accents!
