Summersville Sneak Peek

My fabric bundle of Summersville by Lucie Summers has been calling out to me and could no longer be ignored.  The call of the fabric - I am sure you've heard it before.


What started off as a mini version of my Tiffany Quilt Pattern evolved as the blocks were pieced, and changed once again on the design floor. 


I love everything about the Summersville collection; the hand drawn designs, the colors, as well as the matching solids.  The pops of solid color in this quilt top really draw in the eye to take further note of the detail of the prints. 


It's a great start to what is an otherwise cold and drab (and rainy) week.  This baby quilt top is now ready for basting and quilting.

Thank you for stopping by,
Rita

  16. Baby quilts have sure changed over the years. When my kids were babies it was either pink, blue, green or yellow. Now anything goes! Looks like this is going to be awesome. Cannot wait to see end product.
