Summer Weekend Quilt!!!

 It's always a fun day when I get to share some secret sewing!! I was thrilled when my good friends at Moda Fabrics asked if I would make the Summer Weekend Quilt  by Corey Yoder featuring her new Sunwashed Fabrics!!! And of course, I said yes, I mean, how can you not whip up those adorable sunshine blocks set on point, so cute!!!!  

I am such a fan of making Coriander Quilts Patterns!!  They are always so well written, easy to follow, and she and I have a similar style in piecing that always makes it fun and fast to whip up one of her quilts!  And I was thrilled to do this design on-point.  I don't often do quilts on-point, but they are so fun, and they create a great negative space to have fun quilting in :)  

And I know it looks like a lot of piecing with some complicated shapes, but really, it is just basic piecing that is harder than it looks.   These blocks whipped together in no time, and I just love the different backgrounds on the blocks to really add that extra wow factor.   It finishes at 64" x 76" so it is a great size to snuggle up in or have as a throw on a couch.  

And I had so much fun custom quilting this one!!!   Remember how I mentioned that awesome negative space, I quilted feathers in it!!!  I just love getting to quilt a vine of feathers moving up the quilt, so fun!!!  (which is kind of funny I say that now, when I few years ago that would have scared me to even attempt :)  Then in the blocks, I really wanted to make the "sunshine points" pop, so I left those un-quilted and then did tiny pebbling and figure 8's in the block background.  I just love how it makes those points stand out.  So fun!!  !!!  

And now this quilt is off visiting lots of quilt shops hopefully bringing some Summer Weekend goodness wherever it travels :)  So I will have to wait to snuggle up in it, But you don't have to wait!!!  Sunwashed Fabrics  are shipping now and Fat Quarter Shop has a Hometown Quilt Kit already available !!  (and guess who's quilt that is in the picture, I know I'm silly, but it just makes me smile ;)  Now you can whip up your own Summer Weekend Quilt before Summer arrives, so great!!!   

I know you are just going to have so much fun making your own ;)   And if you are like me, I need this splash of summer in my life right now (so done with snow right now :)       I am excited for this one to come back because I think it is just going to make such a lovely  gift :)   You just can't help but smile at all of those happy prints and colors in adorable sunshine blocks!!! 

And that is it for today !!

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!
