Quilting the white background for Planview honestly went quicker than I had anticipated, and so I’m really happy to get to share the finished quilt with you today!
The fabric for the sample quilt was provided by Northcott Fabrics. The colorful prints are by Patrick Lose Studios and are part of the reorderable Mixmasters Mashup line. The quilt includes:
- Open Weave White 10015-10 (white)
- Criss Cross SUNNY 10010-5 (yellow)
- Hatching LEAF 10009-71 (lime)
- Sticks IRISH 10007-72 (green)
- Sparkle CARIBBEAN 10003-62 (aqua)
- Boomerangs CORNFLOWER 10002-42 (blue)
I am smitten with the Hatching Leaf (lime) print which is also the backing for the quilt. I think it absolutely glows! And speaking of smitten, I just love how the quilting texture shines when viewed from the back of the quilt, too!
Planview will be the pattern for my 2022 quilt along. I wanted to submit Planview for the jury to consider for the upcoming QuiltCon to be held in Phoenix in February 2022, so the quilt is finished a bit early due to the QuiltCon submission deadline being October 31st this year. Signups for the quilt along will open in November, and the dates for the quilt along are listed below.

Planview finished at 60″ wide by 72″ tall after quilting, trimming, and binding. After the quilting was complete and prior to trimming the quilt so I could sew on the binding, I spent about a half hour giving the quilt a “hot blocking” treatment. Normally to block a quilt, a quilt is washed or at least made pretty wet, stretched square, and allowed to dry. Due to the high humidity we are currently experiencing (these photos were taken quickly between rain showers), I opted to go a slightly different route for this quilt. I used my long 6″ x 24″ ruler and my iron and was able to get the quilt to lay nice and flat with the seams running long and straight. I was then able to use my two way laser level to trim the quilt nice and square.
Planview Quilt Along FAQs
Q: What is the complexity level?
A: The pattern is written at a confident beginner level, and the pattern is appropriate for that skill level and above. There will be no bias edges.
Q: Will there be quilt kits offered?
A: I am working with Sewtopia on several Kona Cotton kits. At the moment I am still looking for a shop that carries these exact Northcott Fabrics prints.
Q: What size options will be offered?
A: You will have 6 sizes to choose from: Wall (30″ x 36″), Baby (40″ x 48″), Lap (60″ x 72″ shown here), Twin (80″ x 96″), Queen (90″ x 108″), or King (100″ x 120″)
If you have additional questions, please leave a comment or send me an email. I’ll be making a baby size during the quilt along and I’d love to have you join me!
