Civil War Jubilee in Nantucket

Detail of Nantucket by Jeanne Zyck, 2013
68" x 68"

Jeanne used a Minnick & Simpson pattern, an exercise in scale, to make a quilt from a Layer Cake of my Civil War Jubilee reproduction fabric from Moda. The 10" layer cake squares went into the stars. She dug into her scrapbag for the light prints and some of the darks.


Here's a picture of the Minnick and Simpson pattern that she used.  Click to see more:
Laurie and Polly say it is one of their first patterns. 


But I doubt it will ever go out of style.

That looks beautiful in your fabrics. I am hoping to do some pieced quilt this year.
