First of all, if you are subscribed to quilt magazine subscriptions you might have see my name appear in recent magazines. =) A couple weeks ago I had received a lovely email sent to me by one of the editors from AQS. She mentioned that a Quilt Guild loved my quilt pattern in the latest issue and wanted to use it for their Guild. I have to say I was shocked with surprise and joy! The quilt I made for AQS was actually one of my most pride and joys! We all love every quilt we make but there is always a favorite out of the bunch and this one happened to be my Fiance and mine too!
Sunshine Quilters recently had a meeting where Deborah Grimes former member and teacher, taught my quilt pattern to other members. I was granted permission to share the photos with you all today! You can also view their Guild and more photos here on Sunshine Quilters Facebook page. I was super pleased to hear that everyone had fun making this quilt. =)
About the Pattern:
As most of us may know, the Churn Dash has been a VERY popular quilt block brought back with new and fun techniques. While I was playing with the block I thought it would look better with some sashing. My personal favorite sashing is stars. Once I added the star sashing in, I fell in love! Right away I saw a Western Dance floor appear. As a born and raised Texan this quilt spoke to me. =P This is also how I came up with the name Square Dance. To bring this quilt more to life I purchased Western Boots Edge to Edge quilt pattern from Wasatch Quilting. I choose this edge to edge pattern because I loved the extreme detail of the cowboy boots. I personally quilted it and the edge to edge pattern really made this quilt come more together. Currently this quilt proudly lays on my spare bedroom.
