4 ideal ways to use the new Northcott Wild and Free fabric line by Christine Baker November 6, 2017 written by Christine Baker November 6, 2017 922 WOW!! I can’t believe it, but this week is my 25th time blogging for QUILTsocial!! My first week was in June 2014, using WonderFil’s Razzle and Dazzle threads. Over the last 3 years I’ve been lucky to work with WonderFil, Brother and Northcott and have been able to make LOTS of fun projects!! Last month on QUILTsocial I used Northcott’s Full Bloom line of fabric and we received SO MANY great comments and compliments about the quilt and the beautiful fabrics – thanks to everyone who took the time to share their thoughts!! Wild and Free This month I get to play with Northcott’s new Wild and Free fabric line designed by Laurie Snow Hein. This beautiful fabric features a panel and lots of horse-themed prints that would be wonderful for making Christmas presents for a horse lover in your family. Hello!!! Wild and Free Panel Versatile fabric #21854 Wallhangings One great, and obvious, way to use this fabric is to make a wallhanging. Norah McGuire-Macleod of Sew Little Time has designed The Majestic Beauties – PTN2103, which has two options for creating a beautiful wallhanging using the Wild and Free fabrics. The Majestic Beauties pattern Lap Quilts These fabrics could also be used to make a beautiful lap quilt! The Spirited Stars – PTN2104 pattern by Sue Harvey & Sandy Boobar of Pine Tree Country Quilts would also be a wonderful Christmas present! Spirited Stars pattern Pillowcases If you’re short on time, but need a thoughtful gift for a friend, then making pillowcases is an awesome idea! I shared my favorite pillowcase pattern on QUILTsocial last October. For these samples I used Northcott’s Artisan Spirit – Euphoria, but the Wild and Free fabrics would make great pillowcases as well! Pillowcases Snap Bags If you’re REALLY in a time crunch for a quick handmade item, then check out my QUILTsocial post from December 2016 in which I show you step-by-step how to make a snap bag in ANY size. Snap bags made from the Wild and Free fabrics would be great for a quick gift for your daughter’s equestrian coach. Or how about goodie bags for a horse themed birthday party? Snap bag made with Northcott Colorworks fabrics As you can see, there are lots of great projects that can be made with your favorite Northcott fabrics.
