Buttermilk and Blue Skies


This quilt was conceived when our mini group decided to do a denim challenge.  I was looking for something to add to the denim and came across some 4" vintage shirting squares that a friend of mine had given me.  At the same time, I had seen Yoko Saito's applique pattern featured in Quiltmania. Yoko's quilt was huge and I knew I would never finish it.  I used bits and pieces from her applique to top my denim and shirting background.  Love this quilt!  Yoko was very complimentary when she sent her email allowing me to enter it in a show.  It has been at Houston and Fall Paducah.
