Arline’s Fire Escape Quilt

Posted on


Arline is in my local quilt guild, Louisville Nimble Thimbles. I love our guild! It is full of friendly, kind and oh-so-talented quilters. Our members enjoy free classes and lectures all year long. Last fall I taught a class on the Fire Escape quilt pattern by one of my favorite designers, Terry Atkinson.

Bunches of people have finished their quilts and are now getting them quilted. It is so fun to see how different everyone’s quilts look depending on the fabrics they’ve chosen.

This pattern is a great beginner’s pattern so if you are looking for something easy to teach at your guild, you won’t be disappointed.

Arline chose the Spin Pantograph for the quilting pattern with a spicy variegated thread that looks great with the bold colors of this top.

My little BirdMan told me that “even though he is not a girl, he really likes this quilt”. 🙂  I had to think about that one for a second. He said he likes it because it looks like Easter Eggs.  Isn’t that cute?

  1. Now THAT is a cheerful quilt!

  2. My little BirdMan said it looks like Easter. 🙂 I think he's right.

  3. I'm a Terry Atkinson groupie too! I taught this to 2 teens who had never quilted before (in a class of 5 total) They had a BLAST..and so, of course did I. ::grin:: Love these colors…

  4. Beth, this would be a great pattern for teens!
