Welcome to Day 4 of Quiltmaker’s
Back to School Party!
Every day is a little like Christmas because we reveal two more quilts–and what a great variety we’ve had from our fabric sponsors. In case you missed them, here are links to the previous quilts:
Day 1 FreeSpirit and Troy Riverwoods Collection
Day 2 RJR Fabrics and Timeless Treasures
Day 3 Quilting Treasures and Red Rooster Fabrics
Today we’ll give you Part 4 of Frame by Frame and show you two more versions of the quilt.
Frame by Frame Part 4: Quilting and Binding
Layer and baste together the backing, batting and quilt top. Quilt the piecing in the ditch as shown below. Quilt a variety of meandering designs in the diagonal sections as shown. Bind the quilt.

Northcott provided fabrics from Stonehenge Woodland.
Here is the finished Northcott quilt. It was made by Karlene Larson from Broadway, North Carolina.
Tradition in all its finery! You have to love the wonderful textures in these fabrics. Makes me want to snuggle up on the couch with hot chocolate.

Robert Kaufman provided fabrics from the Mother’s Melodies collection by Darlene Zimmerman.
Here’s the finished quilt in Mother’s Melodies. It was made by Ruth Wasmuth from Lafayette, Indiana.
What a lovely, baby soft look this is in the 1930s reproductions. Ruth’s Baptist Fan quilting over all of the piecing is wonderful!
