Northcott Stonehenge

Xandra - December 2014Xandra’s Pickle Dish is a 2-color, 3-fabric quilt set on point. It measures approximately 70 x 70 inches. I used an on-point setting for this quilt so I could finish it off with straight edges to make binding the quilt easier. The curves are very gentle and can be easily machine pieced. The Inklingo Double Wedding Ring Design Book includes assembly notes, information on pressing and a pressing guide for the arcs. The DWR Design Book is free when you purchase the DWR or Pickle Dish collections but through 31 December 2014, Linda is offering it for free without a purchase.

This design uses the Inklingo Pickle Dish Collection which can be purchased separately and has all the shapes to make this quilt or as an Add-On to the Double Wedding Ring Collection. I colored the blocks in EQ7 with fabrics from Toscana and  Stonehenge by Northcott. Linda has a video with 50 Double Wedding Ring designs (see end of post) that will inspire some to try a more complicated design. There is also information on Linda’s blog about fussy cutting Double Wedding Ring shapes!

No, there is no Xandra in my family tree. There isn’t anyone male or female whose name begins with the letter X as a matter of fact.

Rebecca Rebecca’s Rose Dream is a 1-color, 2-fabric quilt in a horizontal setting. It measures 84 x 84 inches. This is one of the simpler quilts I designed for the A to Z Challenge. It would be a good beginner quilt for someone new to Inklingo or new sewing curves by machine.

This design uses the Inklingo 6″ Rose Dream Collection. I colored the blocks in EQ7 with fabrics from Stonehenge by Northcott.

Rebecca is the name of a few cousins in my Duthie line.

Sewing Curves Without Pins

This is how I sew curves. (I dislike pinning!) I use a 3M Command Strip pasted along the side of my presser foot to help as a guide also. You need to be sure to use your 1/4″ presser foot if you are going to use a Command Strip as a guide. When I am done sewing curves, the Command Strip removes easily from my machine bed.

Priscilla Priscilla’s Beauty is a 5-color, 6-fabric quilt in a horizontal setting. It measures 69 x 69 inches. I have a smaller version of this quilt started. I got bogged down in the pomegranate applique—I have too many applique projects going!

This design uses the Inklingo New York Beauty #2 and 6″ Sunflower Collections. I colored the blocks in EQ7 with fabrics from Stonehenge by Northcott.

Pricilla Williamson is a second great aunt and one of Jane’s daughters. She was born in 1861 but I lose sight of her after the 1870 Census. Both of her parents are gone by 1880 and she could be living with other relatives or even married by the 1880 Census. Either way, I thought a New York Beauty quilt should be hers.
