Do-Si-Do Quilt

Today I'm presenting my Do-Si-Do quilt.  The pattern for this quilt is available in the new issue of Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting magazine, the May/June 2016 issue.  

Quilt Stats:

Size:  64-1/2" x 81-1/2"
Block Size:  12"
Fabric:  Lorraine by American Jane For Moda
Batting:  Warm and Natural by the Warm Company
Thread:  King Tut by Superior

This is the floral applique block.  I made six of these for the quilt.  They are sewn using the fusible applique method.  They look a little plain, all by themselves, but they come alive when paired with the alternate pieced blocks.

The flower petals are laid over the background fabric to form a slightly wonky six pointed star center.

The alternate blocks are mostly pieced.  The center section of the block features a little curvy applique to give these blocks a unique look that pairs well with the floral blocks.
I made twelve of these blocks for the quilt.

This is a pic of the back of the quilt.  The quilting design really shows up well on the dark blue backing fabric.

  The Do-Si-Do quilt is gracing the cover of Love of Quilting.  I'm a Cover Girl!  This issue should be available in your local quilt shop soon, or you can purchase a digital issue online from Fons and Porter here:  Love of Quilting Digital Download May/June 2016.  If you only want to purchase the Do-Si-Do pattern, you can get it here:  Do-Si-Do Quilt Pattern.  And, if you want to sew your quilt with the same gorgeous Lorraine fabric line, a kit is available here:  Do-Si-Do Quilt Kit.

If you do sew a quilt from one of my patterns, please share a pic.  I would love to see it!

Have a wonderful day,

Jennifer Schifano Thomas
