"Zig Zag" Alternate Routes

I was very excited when Karen asked me to quilt her version of our Alternate Routes pattern.  It is a special feeling to work on a quilt that someone made from a pattern you designed!  Karen choose to use the "zig-zag" layout for her quilt.

I used my "yo-yo" panto for the first time, and I really like the nice even texture that it gave the quilt.  We chose a variegated Lava thread in the "deep sea" color to add just a little more interest.

I seem to love pieced backings more and more!

Yesterday was a fun mail day!   I was the lucky winner of a giveaway hosted by "In My Sewing Room", and  I received these yummy batik 1/2 yard cuts from Sew Sisters Quilt Shop.  This is an example of what you could be receiving each month if you joined the Batik Lover's Club.  Tempting isn't it?  Can't wait to firm up a plan for these!


  1. Karen did a great job with her quilt, love the zig zag layout. So fun to see the quilts being made from our pattern. Your panto choice looks great on this quilt.

  2. The quilt is gorgeous and the quilting too!
