What were once easygoing mornings during the laid back summer time, have now turned into mad dashes to prepare school lunches, gather backpacks with last night’s homework, and send your sweeties off to catch the bus to school! This new frenzied schedule can only signal one thing….it’s Back to School time!! And in honor of the occasion, our friends at Quiltmaker Magazine are hosting a fun event on their Quilty Pleasures blog called, Quiltmakers Back to School Party. All throughout the week, they will be showing you how to construct this eye-catching quilt pattern shown above called the Hip-Hopscotch Pattern. They’ve assembled a team of 8 QM readers who will serve on the Back to School Party team. Each of the readers was given fabric from a different manufacturer with the instructions on making the Hip-Hopscotch quilt using that fabric. Yesterday, they featured the quilt pictured above using Clothworks fabric, ‘Home is in the Kitchen’ by Dan DiPaolo. Follow this link to read about quilter, Nann Blaine Hilyard, one of the QM Back to School Party team, who made this quilt. And stick around on their blog learn how to make this nifty quilt!
