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 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!!!
