It’s been an odd summer here in the Pacific Northwest. I thought it time to produce some of my own sunshine.
Enter Scrappy Sunshine Quilt.
This quilt originally started with cutting up all my Flea Market Fancy by Denyse Schmidt. It just needed to happen, but when I put it up to create blocks, it was just bland.
Well you know what they say about best laid plans…
I pulled the duller colors and threw in the Amy Butler Lotus (thanks Heather for the pink!),
and then the Alexander Henry Aviary which I always wanted to have together with the Lotus in a quilt.
The Heather Ross campers were an afterthought and I had just enough for a few blocks, so perfect for a summery quilt.
I think I bought Pink Chalk out of these little Japanese flowers in every color way when they went on sale. They are printed on the same soft fabric as Heather Ross’s stuff.
Of course I can never make a quilt purely from stash so I ordered this print in each colorway when I found it for $5/yard.
It all makes the Flea Market Fancy seem like an afterthought.
The layout doesn’t have any rhyme or reason. I just grab blocks from the piles and lay them on my cutting mat in a square or rectangle and piece them.
