Spring Sunshine

Now that this quilt has wended its way across the country to Ms. Harriet, I can show it on my blog.
As with most quilts, it looks much more beautiful in person.
Part of the reason for that is that it's a lovely pale lemon chiffon color along with a creamy mint--and they just don't photograph that well.
The fabrics are from a Moda line by Three Sisters from a couple of years ago.  After making a Victory Quilt from a couple of charm packs and some yardage, I just did not have this line out of my system.  Of course, no one in central New Mexico stocked it--so when I found some more on line, of course I ordered a couple more pieces--well, actually, three more pieces.
The third piece was the log cabin print because I wanted to use it on the back of the quilt.
It wasn't quite big enough, so I had to add some more pieces.  At first my friend thought I had pieced both sides--but I assured her I didn't have that much patience.

I quilted this one with Fil-Tec Glide thread in a slightly gold Glide thread--the color reminded me of fading August flowers.

Reminder, to see more detail of the fabrics or the quilting, right click on a picture and open in a new tab or window.

I'm glad the quilt has a new home in Georgia; hope Ms. Harriet takes a nap in the sunshine while covered with this one.

It looks nice, I loved the colors in that Moda line. Pretty quilt lines!
