If you've ever gazed admiringly at ombre fabrics and wondered how to put them to use in a quilt, Checkered Past is the pattern for you. Made with only three colors of Shibori Hand-dyes from Anthology fabrics, Tammy Silvers of Tamarinis, Marietta, Georgia, fussy cut patches to make the most of the simply country lanes block she stretched and shrank 10 different ways, resulting in a contemporary wall hanging that's full of movement. Checkered Past was quilted by Pat Yearwood of Stitch'n Quilt, Mableton, Georgia. Find this and other great quilt patterns, quilt blocks, Staff Picks fabric collections, and more in Quilters Newsletter October/November 2015.
