The dance was wildly popular, as you can see. Starting as the Jitterbug, it soon became known as the Lindy Hop and then Swing Dancing. It looks like a lot of fun.
So, what does this have to do with quilting? This is what it has to do with quilting:
The Jitterbug Quilt
Isn't this beautiful? The quilt has been made using Windham Fabrics Storybook feed sack reproduction prints. Beginning with a simple four-patch center block, the block radiates out giving it lots of movement and energy, just like the dance.
The pattern came from this book- Layer Cake, Jelly Roll and Charm Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott. The entire book is full of charming quilts, each and every one. Jitterbug happens to be the cover girl.
