Alternate Routes with a New Twist

This is Sandra's version of the Alternate Routes Pattern.  Sandra came up with her own unique layout, which she referred to as "the fish version".  I can see the fish, but I love the unexpected, yet symmetrical nature of this layout.

Sandra choose the Flirtatious panto, and after much deliberation we decided that a charcoal grey So Fine thread was the answer.

Is this backing fabric fantastic?  It is a wonderful surprise when you turn the quilt over and see this cheerful modern print!

If you are tempted to make your own version of Alternate Routes, there is still time to enter to win a copy of the pattern and a Hand Dyed Infinity Scarf here.  


  1. Love Sandra's "fish" layout! The orange fabric is spectacular, so it the backing print.

  2. Love this layout. I think I may have to make another one from this pattern!

  3. I really like the layout Sandra came up with! This is such a versatile pattern -- no two quilts are going to look alike! Your quilting is great too!

  4. This is beautiful! Great color too!
