Sunshine Quilt

The weather in the Midwest in the spring is always crazy–shorts are fine one day and the next you’re pulling out your boots and sweaters.  One remedy for the dreary days is a bright and colorful quilt. I’m calling this one Sunshine!

I made this with a Summer Breeze by Riley Blake charm pack and some fat quarters from my stash.

I put 2 charm squares together and sewed a quarter-inch seam on 2 opposite sides–east and west. Then I cut them in half and pressed the seams open. Next I placed them on top of each other (flip them around so you are putting a solid right on top of a print). Now sew seams on the east and west sides and cut open. Press and add to your pile.

Couldn’t do this without this design wall hanging in the wall off the living room. Only problem is the dog knocks the blocks off with her tail. I wake up in the morning with squares on the floor. I have learned to take a picture before I got to bed–otherwise I’d never be able to put it back together.
