This warm, summery quilt was lots of fun to make, and it made a small dent in the string boxes.  It’s definitely a redo of this quilt, the one that was almost visible in Southern Weddings Magazine (Can’t see it?  Look behind the bride.)  Completely coincidentally, Southern Living Magazine contacted me this week to say that the wedding spread would be appearing in their upcoming issue.  No details yet.  Maybe there will  be a different shot that shows my quilt!

This time I used 12″ blocks with no borders.  The other quilt also had more variety in the centers because I made them from a charm pack, and cut these from yardage.

The back is very boring restful.

I free-motion quilted a sun in every block with a sunny orange Masterpiece thread from Superior.  I really enjoyed doing them and I like the way they turned out.

Hope you are having some fun summer finishes.  I’m linking up to Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
