Linda Baxter Lasco's Selvage Skirt

This pretty skirt was made by Linda Baxter Lasco of Paducah, KY. If her name sounds familiar, that's because she is a senior editor at AQS and has authored three of the "New Quilts from an Old Favorite" series: the Sawtooth, Burgoyne Surrounded and Rose of Sharon books. She also helped me with my AQS book "Quilts from the Selvage Edge."

So, back to the skirt. Linda was inspired by Paulette Carr's selvage skirt which was featured here last September. She made it for Faith, the daughter of Sylvia who is also part of the team at AQS. Didn't she do a great job? I love the bright colors and the fancy belt. She even changed her thread to match each of the buttons. Faith is one lucky girl. Nice job, Linda!

What an adorable skirt! I love the attention to details with the colorful buttons and pocket flower.

Thanks for stopping by lessons from elephants. I hope one day to have a following like yours. See you soon!

That is a great skirt! I had the pleasure of taking classes with Linda when she lived in MA. She is an amazing quilter, and I can say for sure, the skirt matches her personality!
