Skip to My Lou

In the current Quiltmaker magazine, you will find my newest quilt featured.  It is an old quilt block pattern with a different layout to play with.  The blocks are 6", and the article gives you other options for layouts.










My inspiration for this quilt came from a quilt top that was in the Pilgrim Roy Collection.  It had never been quilted, and the colors were rather odd.  He thought that was the reason it had not been quilted and just put away.  I really liked the setting, and decided it would look great in a modern fabric.  Playground by Amy Sinibaldi of Art Gallery Fabrics designed this delightful collection of fabrics, and I wanted to use it!






Quiltmaker has kits available for this quilt if you decide you want to make it just like mine.  


It was quilted on my Janome 7700 with a quick and easy wavy diagonal line. 

If you do make it, I would love to see it!

grace and peace....Sharon
