Borealis Ridge is the 2nd quilt in a series of scenic row quilts designed by Marie Noah, inspired by the Row by Row Experience. Originally created for the 2016 Row by Row theme Home Sweet Home at Northern Threads. The row showcases a strip pieced bargello style borealis in the background with a cozy cabin on the ridge top overlooking the view. This combination creates the illusion of intricate detail, yet it’s achieved with basic sewing skills. The row can be made without borders, and combined with other row patterns for a larger quilt project, or finished with the border to make a single art quilt. The choice is yours.
No Need to Cut Borealis Ridge Applique Pieces
If tracing and cutting all the intricate little pieces in Borealis Ridge isn’t your thing, our laser cut, pre-fused kit options are the way to go. All you do is piece the background, remove the backing paper from the appliques, place them in the scene and fuse with an iron. Finally add borders or additional rows and quilt as desired. Basic sewing skills is all that is needed to complete this project.
