Last month I had the opportunity to sew with this beautiful new fabric collection by Katarina Roccella for Art Gallery Fabrics, Skopelos. For the blog tour to roll out the collection and give some inspiration for using the fabrics, I made a variation on my Jumping Jacks pattern. Read full post, Here.
In the original pattern, I used lots of scraps in bright primary colors with black and white as the secondary design.
For my quilt with the Skopelos fabric, you can see it looks completely different just by turning the blocks in a different orientation. This is a versatile pattern, offering a variety of design variations by rearranging the orientation of the blocks.
I added to the effect by setting the blocks on a diagonal across the quilt with negative space on either side. The blue took the place of the black in the original.
This week, I am sharing some of this beautiful fabric as well as the Jumping Jacks quilt pattern with one of you readers.
