Creating beautiful quilt designs is something I really enjoy doing and Hopscotch is one of my favorite quilt patterns!
Once again Amy Ellis from Amy’s Creative Side has a Quilter’s Blogger Festival going on and I decided to enter my Hopscotch quilt. I actually made this quilt twice as the purple one went away to Quilt Market and stores for a little over a year.
Since the original quilt was gone before I finished the pattern…..I made the quilt a second time with batiks again but using a cream for a completely different take on the quilt.
Notice how both quilts aren’t the same size? When I made the second quilt I didn’t add the first border which made it just a little bit smaller. Then I threw the quilt in the wash machine and dryer on medium heat. As you can see it shrunk a little bit……actually about 4 inches.
