When I think of New Orleans I think of Mardi Gras. The French Quarter is definitely in the center of the festivities. If you’ve been there you’ll recognize familiar spots and remember all the excitement. If you haven’t been there, let your imagination run wild and you’ll just about have it!
“French Quarter” includes the following designs:
Mardi Gras Parade, Jazz Musicians, Trolley Car, Sternwheeler Steamer, French Market, Cafe du Monde, Courtyard, Canal Street, Bourbon Street, Royal Street, St. Charles, Jackson Square, Presbytere, Andrew Jackson Statue, St. Louis Cathedral, Cabildo, Cornstalk Fence, Cobblestones.
If anyone is interested in the “Wrought Iron Fence” border applique, I’ll print it out as a special order for $10.00.
This pattern is 11″ wide & 12′ long with no repeats.
The distinctive feature of a Pictogram is that it’s a pantograph with NO repeats. It’s a complete 12′ roll comprised of 4 panels of 3′ each, all “hooked” together. I’ve added a dotted line at each 36″ section. While they can be stacked up as shown in the picture, they can also be quilted like an E2E or B2B giving lots of pictorial subject matter to your quilt.
To avoid placing an animal or image on top of itself all the way down the quilt I recommend starting at a different 36″ division for each “pass.” After starting, continue quilting through as many sections as needed for that row. You won’t have to stop – the line is continuous. For a full sized quilt I might make 7-8 rows, starting at various sections of the panto.
