Deb Tucker’s Northern Neighbors pattern features intricate maple leaves and flying geese. The pattern makes two sizes: Twin (70″ x 95″) & King (104″ x 104″). I bought the fabric for this quilt over a year ago and had the units cut and ready to sew together into blocks but I became overcome by events! It was my goal to “get her done” before the year end and I did!
Northern Neighbors Maple Leaf
This is my favorite leaf block.
Deconstructed Maple Leaf
The leaf block is made using Studio 180 Design Wing Clipper 1 for flying geese, Corner Beam and Split Rects tools for great leaf point definition.
I made the twin size, so I made 6 of these blocks.
This is Deb Tucker’s new pattern she is calling Northern Neighbors. She has not decided how to finish the border yet. But it is stunning! We just had our Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor’s reunion and we got the chance to work on this pattern. Deb hopes to release it in May 2014. This pattern uses Studio 180 Design Split Rects, Wing Clipper I, Corner Beam. The diamond in a square block can also be made with Deb’s new tool called “Corner Pop”, more on that new tool later.
Above are some of the instructor’s version of Northern Neighbors.
These are Dan’s blocks. Dan and his wife own “Threads Galore Quilt Shop, in Rangeley Maine.
This is Phyllis’ version using Kansas Troubles.
Donna’s are so beautiful using batiks. I’m working on mine, I am using reds and white. I’ll share when I get it put together.
