Back in March, the Studio 180 Design Certified Instructors along with Deb, Sue and the rest of the Tucker team got together to test a couple of new patterns, “Wish Upon and Northern Neighbors”. I just finished my Northern Neighbors quilt top. I used all batik fabrics. There were hundreds of flying geese in this quilt which I never would have happened without the Wing Clipper tool. The pattern also uses the Corner Beam, and Split Rects tools. The tools are fabulous, and help to get accurate points when you sew a good quarter inch seam. This quilt was challenging with the tools, but I would never have attempted it without them.

Leaf section of the Northern Neighbors block. Can you find the Corner Beam, the Wing Clipper and the Split Rects in this block?
Making Flying Geese with the Wing Clipper. Did I say hundreds of them!
Pieces coming together. Lots of pieces.
Putting it all together. Love my Design Wall! Thanks go to my husband Rick for building it.
Oh the joy of a completed top! Now unto…….”Doubly Charmed” I think.
I’m teaching “Sea Glass” at Bernina Connection next week. Come and join us.

I love everything about quilting. I love the colors, the feel of the fabrics, the piecing, the quilting , and even putting on the binding! I free motion quilt using a Bernina 780, longarm quilt (free motion or ruler work), on a Prodigy , and hand quilt when I get a chance.
I have been teaching quilting since 2004, and became a Certified Studio 180 Design Instructor in 2013. In 2020 I became an Island Batik Ambassador, and an Island Batik Designer in 2021. I teach locally at Bernina Connection, in Tallahassee, and travel to guilds and shops to share my love of quilting through a trunk show or workshops, and I also vend at several Quilt Shows in the area.
