    Skateboard Quilt

    Guild members made the skateboard blocks in the centers.
    I framed them to make them tilt and then added sashing and border.
    it was quilted by a professional.

    The tilt really makes the whole quilt have such movement. Really cute.

    I agree with Watson. Also, the off set on the block placement is a great way to encourage the viewer to look at every block individually. You really know how to make a dynamic quilt out of simple shapes.

    I really like the placement of your skateboards in the quilt. It gives an authentic feel.

    Love the quilt! The tilt and offsetting each row really help make this one. I think it would fall flat if it were just straight set and all aligned. Great job!

    Fun quilt! Tilting blocks made by others is my favourite way to deal with blocks that are all different sizes.

    All the variety of fabrics could make this an I-spy quilt. I like the orange sashing to make the blocks pop.

    That's a good way to use some different fabrics. Someone will love that!
