Alternate Routes #1


This is Evelyn’s version of our Alternate Routes pattern and she chose to do the rectangular medallion layout. This is the first of these quilts I have quilted for a client and since I presented this pattern to our guild as a Mystery project I know I’ll be getting more. I love seeing what layout quilters are choosing as I have not seen two the same yet.  Some are using one of the 20 layouts we gave in the pattern and some are adding their own twist and I love seeing that!   Evelyn used white and navy fabrics for her quilt as we suggested high contrast colors for this one.


I used Fascinations for the panto design, Navy So Fine thread and Dream Blend batting.

Lori and I set up a Flickr page so you can see some of the quilts that have been made with this pattern so far.


  1. Evelyn's quilt is just stunning. The colors she chose really allow the piecing to stand out. Love it!

  2. A really beautiful quilt in it's simplicity with color choice. It's so fresh and clean - and your quilting complements it perfectly!

  3. Great quilt. Checked out the Flicker page...lots of beauties!

  4. Very pretty. I love the navy and white.

  5. Very lovely indeed! Fantastic quilt and quilting!
