Petticoat Quilt

When I was baptized at 8, my Mom made me a dress for the reception afterwards.  It was peach moire with puffed sleeves, trimmed with lace.  The back of the skirt curved open like two flower petals and underneath was layer after layer of delicate white lace.  With patent leather shoes, and dried baby's breath placed in my braids to top off the look, (yes, you can laugh!) I felt really special in that dress!   Lace underskirts seemed to be something my Mom made for me often.  Baby clothes with ruffle bums, and a gingham dress with lace on the pinafore and underskirt come to mind!
Studying design and the history of clothing in University, I had the opportunity to swoon and sigh over numberless underskirts and petticoats from simple to exceptional and extravagant.  Gah!  I loved those days!

Since I've had girls of my own, lace has always been a special part of my daughters' special dresses.  I've made sure of that!  I have a little collection of vintage laces, and often look for ways to use them when making things for my girls.

This design is inspired by embellished skirts with layer upon layer of scalloped lace.  I had been dreaming of this design for awhile before I was able to find a curved template that would assist in making it.  A couple of weeks after the Classic Curves Ruler's debut at Spring Market 2017, I discovered it and knew it would work for this design.  It is such a great ruler, and Sharon has made some incredible quilt patterns using the CCR.  I had the privilege of meeting her at  Fall Market and I totally admire her style and the masterful way she designs patterns with her ruler!
Once you've sufficiently admired the incredible free motion quilting by Dara Tomasson, ;) can you find the block?  It's just a simple square block with a curve on one corner.  Blocks are arranged on point to give you this scalloped effect.  I was so excited to make this design with our June's Cottage prints!
This quilt comes together so fast!  Inner and outer curves are cut from the same square of fabric and that takes a couple steps; but then after sewing one curved seam, trim the block with the help of the 'true-up template' provided, and the block is complete!
