Skopelos Fabric and Pattern Giveaway!

skopelos fabric by katarina roccella for art gallery fabrics

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.

Jumping Jacks quilt by Color Girl, Sharon McConnell, with fabrics by Art Gallery Fabrics, skopelos

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.

    We don’t have many quilt shops around here. LOL. We have a Joannes about an hour away and an All Brands that has some good quality designer fabrics. I just discovered the All Brands though so I’m waiting for my “quilt money” to grow a little before I go back. LOL. They carry some of the Art Gallery fabrics which are my VERY FAVORITES….I’ll need a good size chunk of moohlah before I go. HA! Thanks for the chance to win this prize. I would love love the book. I’m still newbie so I’d love to try that pattern out. It makes a very beautiful quilt!

  18. Lisa says:

    I live in a town WITH NO QUILT SHOP! And it’s awful. We do have a new JoAnn’s though, and that’s pretty good. And there is a great shop with a decent selection about 25 miles from me called Whittles Fabrics. Other than that, online is my only choice!

  30. Kath S says:

    The Quilt Store in Broomfield, Colorado – just about 2 miles down the road from me – is my fav. The staff are so helpful and nice (they helped my teenage son put together a wonderful selection of notions and fabrics for my Christmas present!). Love the new Jumping Jacks arrangement you used with Skopelos. It’s got a great balance between negative space (lovely quilting!) and pattern design and ‘showing off’ the fabrics (prints and solids both). I’d love to win this giveaway so I could play.

  31. kris says:

    My fav quilt shop is in my neighborhood called the Cosmic Cow. That quilt looks lovely and I would love to make it!!!

  32. Darlene Osborn says:

    Queen Bee Quilt Shop in Grand Rapids, MI

  34. Nancy Wichtendahl says:

    Spectacular quilt! And the fabric is such eye candy!

  35. Martha C. says:

    Had not seen the fabric. It is beautiful! Bet it’s even prettier in person. My favorite quilt shop is Intown Quilters in Decatur, Georgia.

  36. Patty says:

    I love the big poppy flowers. I live within 2 hours of 13 quilt shops so it’s hard to pick a favorite. Usually when a friend and I go quilt shopping we hit 4 or 5 stores. So much fun!!

  37. Susan in Dublin says:

    Three great shops nearby, but I will name my ling-time favorite, The Cotton Patch in Lafayette, CA.

    Love the fabrics and the way you adapted your pattern for such a contemporary look.

  38. Ellee says:

    Those fabrics are lovely and the Jumping Jacks pattern is perfect. I’d definitely like to make a quilt from that pattern.

  39. Gina says:

    I love your quilt! Very eye-catching!

    My favorite quilt shop is Millhouse Quilts in Waunakee, WI. However, it’s a 2 hour drive from home for me, so I rarely get to go there anymore. (I used to live in Waunakee, but it’s been a few years).

  40. Lesley says:

    My local quilt shop which I enjoy very much is Piece by Piece in Eugene Oregon

  41. Rina says:

    I have four LQS’s within an hours drive all which have their own personality. My favorite isn’t the biggest with thousands of bolts of fabric or the smallest with the amazing owner or the nearest but it’s the Lil Red Hen Quilt Shop in Paola, Kansas. Jenny, the owner is wonderful and her shop has a little of every style of fabric. If she doesn’t have something she will get it. If it’s a new notion or tool she will order three of them. One for your order, one for herself and one for sale. She says that she can’t sell it if she doesn’t have first hand knowledge of the product. It’s always so fun to go just to see what she has in new this week. Thanks for the chance at the amazing fabric and the pattern looks like it’s fun to make.

  42. Mania Hatziioannidi says:

    My favorite quilt shop is Charm Pack in Athens, Greece. Actually it is the first and only quilt shop in the capital of Greece.

  45. Chris says:

    I’m in the middle of no where but I go to Carolina Cotton in Kings Mountain or Hobby Lobby in Gastonia. Not a quilt shop but I like the store.

  46. Mary says:

    I loved playing Jacks in the summertime when I was in grade school. I really like the pattern.

  47. Fran says:

    Your quilt is beautiful & is such a great showcase for these gorgeous fabrics! I live in Sydney Australia & I don’t have a local quilt shop near to me & buy most of my fabrics online – from Australian online shops where I can, I think it’s important to buy from local (or within state or country) retailers. Thanks!

  48. Abby Crager says:

    Love all of this, the pattern, the fabrics and the way you changed it up for this quilt.

  49. Delaine says:
