Lynne Bob Square Pants

A year or so ago, I designed the Lynne Bob Square Pants block which you can find a tutorial for right here.  When I designed the block, I didn't realise that it would work so well as a quilt of repeating blocks.  My version is here:

LBSP finished 

Kati from the Blue Chair made a wonderful version which is here:


And now one of my readers has made this beautiful version, all from Jo Morton fabrics which she has called "Town Squares"- so named because it reminded her of the many small rural and historical Pennsylvania towns that she travels through.  The background of the quilt is the roads travelled and all of the coloured squares represent the myriad of local businesses in the towns.


As a new longarmer, she bravely covered her quilt in feathers and did an incredible job. 


This quilt is now one of the finalists in the Jo Morton fabrics challenge for which is was made and Kim would love you all to take a minute and vote for it if you have time.  Voting starts Thursday, November 15th, 2012. If you would like to vote for my quilt, the link to the online voting is here.
