Free Project Friday: Shoo Fly Quilt

October 22, 2010, 09:27 am  Posted by Lark

What, we ask, is not to love about this bright and cheery Shoo Fly Quilt from Malka Dubrawsky’s Color Your Cloth? The shoo fly pattern actually has some interesting history linked to it, both in its origins and later possible ties to the Underground Railroad. Malka’s hand-dyed fabrics are absolutely lovely (there’s more in the book on her particular techniques), but this quilt appears to have some serious stash-busting potential. Happy quilting!
