Let’s have some more quilting fun with the new ColorWorks Concepts fabric from Northcott! At the beginning of February, I showed you how to make placemats, a table topper and a table runner using the Soho Panel and coordinating fabric from this new, modern collection from Northcott. You can have a look at all the fabrics here. You can also find out which quilt shops in the USA and Canada have these fabrics by using the Product Finder link at the top of the page on the Northcott web site.
I started with one Soho panel and some coordinating solids. After finishing my table set, I still had fabric left over. The panel had sections cut out of it, but I knew I could figure out a way to use the leftovers to make a small quilt.
I designed this little quilt using the Electric Quilt program. Over the next few days, I’ll show you how to make your own version of the quilt.
Here’s how I started. I cut the remaining panel pieces into squares and rectangles. You need 12 of these pieces for the quilt. The squares will be about 4½” and the rectangles will be about 3½” x 4½”. The measurements don’t have to be exact as long as they are approximately this size.
To complete the blocks, I decided to use these 7 solids from the ColorWorks collection by Northcott, but you may choose other colors if you wish. You need 20″ of each of the 7 colors. From each fabric, cut 3 – 3″ strips on the lengthwise grain. Cut the strips into 7½” lengths. You’ll have 6 strips 3″ x 7½” of each color.
Be sure to come back tomorrow to see how to make the blocks. I hope you are continuing to have fun with the new ColorWorks Concepts fabric!
