Dee's vacation quilt, which was inspired by another brilliant quilter, inspired me. You can see Dee's story here, and she credits redpepperquilts. Also, this was Dee's entry for the quilt show that is still going on today!!!! Check it out.
Here is my version:
This picture, sad to say, was taken in the brightest spot in my house. For those who don't know me very well, I have been realizing that you might get the wrong idea about me. I don't love all those dark fabrics, it's just Fall here.
But it is Summer in these fabrics! So cheerful. I started out making a lap quilt last night. I made all 8 of these blocks. It was like recess!!!! This morning when I looked at the blocks, I decided that this was meant to be at least a twin!!! I ordered more.
These are Moda Water Garden charms. They have the cutest little critters on them. I also ordered some extra for helping with the scrappy back and for the binding.
The other fabrics were already in my stash, and I have plenty of them. Oh the bliss.
I love these little bees!
Block making has been side-tracked today by this post over at Sew Mama Sew. There is a baby that I have made some receiving blankets for, and they were looking pitiful and lonely by themselves. Hopefully I will have pictures of my version tomorrow!
Hope your day is as cheerful as my fabric!!!
