Today is the day! My third quilt pattern, the Sidewalk Quilt, is releasing into the quilting world! I thought when this day arrived that I would feel more official; but even after three patterns, I still feel like a rookie. However, I am really excited because this is the first pattern that I am releasing after deciding to narrow my pattern writing focus— for the foreseeable future, you can now expect all my patterns to be geared towards kids and families!
This pattern is a quilted version of a one of your favorite childhood memories—hopscotch. The inspiration for this quilt came from my son, as a gift for his preschool graduation. There is hopscotch spray painted in the courtyard of his school. After crying at drop off for the first several days of the year, we started to distract him with the numbers on the ground. And now, he hopscotches his way into school everyday!
My vision for this pattern is that it will be used as a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon, or as an end of the year gift for a favorite teacher. The pattern is written for both yardage and scrappy versions. Below I am providing all the details for my cover quilt, which uses yardage. However, stay tuned for another blog post this week featuring my scrappy versions!
