As soon as I received my strike offs for this collection I knew I would make it up with this pattern. I was so sick this fall I didn’t release any new patterns with this line, but re-vamped some old favorites instead. Skipping Squares was one of my first patterns almost 6 years ago so it was fitting to remake it with this bright happy fabric line.
I’d forgot how quick and fun this quilt was to make. It uses 10 fat quarters for a 51″ x 68″ quilt, but each fat quarter makes 5 blocks (not including the white) so it’s easy to re-size and make larger.
I sent this to Kathy for quilting and told her to do with it as she pleases. She did this amazing free hand straight line quilting, with the lines going different directions for each block. I can’t wait to wash this one…the texture is amazing on it. Thank you again Kathy!!
We got home yesterday from a week in CA visiting Disney. This picture sums it up perfectly….one is cranky because I’m taking a picture, one is on day 3 of her raggedy Elsa costume, and one is just happy to be there. I ate and waddled my pregnant self through Disneyland and it was awesome…but now I need a vacation from my vacation! ;)
