This is Julie’s Popsicle Sticks quilt and the pattern is by Atkinson’s Designs. I had purchased a few new pantos this summer and was happy to see that Always Ivy looked perfect on this quilt top. It has an even quilting density which I look for in a pattern and has a nice flow to the movement when quilting it out. Might not be a beginner panto though as you can easily quilt past the three leaves and go from swirl to swirl…ask me now I know! I have a few pantos like that and I just have to focus more when I quilting them and check over each row before I advance them. I can really ‘zone out’ when I quilt a panto and not realize I have missed part of a design or that my bobbin thread has ran out when I get to the end of the row.
The backing is a navy polka dot Minkie and batting Quilters Dream Blend.
