Before the Autumnal Equinox is here, I thought I should finish playing with my Summer Breeze. This was a full FQ bundle gifted to me by my SIL for helping her with her very first quilt (that she designed).
My first quilt was the 'How Far Will You Go' QAL with The Elven Garden.
And then I made a pillow to go with it as part of the Project Quilting Challenge with Persimon Dreams.
And scraps worked perfectly for the Mug Rug Blog Hop over at Sew We Quilt
The left-overs became another quilt. A simple 20-patch (2.5" squares) to use up all those scraps.
The stars are made with the sashing - 4.5" strips with 'flip-corners' from 2.5" squares.
And corner stones - 4.5" squares - make up the star centers. Very easy way to make a secondary pattern. I had it longarmed by one of our local quilters. A flowing leaf, vine and flower that resembled most of the flower patterns in the fabrics. AND yes, dark yellow thread - I love color thread and I just thought it added to the warm and summer feel to this quilt.
And to show how the star travels into the inner border - it's just a geese unit.
The back is a Henry Glass - "Bouquet Splendor" - which I think works nicely.
I do have a baggy of all the corner snips, a few scraps and some of those border fabrics. I think I will tuck them away with a note on them - future Doll Quilt Swap. Now I am really ready to play with Fall fabrics.
