Second Verse, Same as the First

I had hoped to be able to finish the quilt that I am working on now for the quilt festival, but if you want to know why it's not finished, check out the previous post!
So, here is my cuddle blankie!
This is my spring entry for the Bloggers Quilt Festival.  Yup, there is a button on the side bar.  For regular readers, I apologize, you've seen it before.  This quilt is named Summer Breeze, and happened to get me through the winter!  It is significant in my life for a couple reasons.  The first being that this is my first totally selfish crafting.  Making it kept me sane during the winter.  This is the only full sized quilt for me that has actually gotten finished!  Other people often come first around here!  Secondly, this quilt got me out of my reproduction rut and on to more cheerful and modern fabrics! 
Also went off the deep end and pieced my back.  Probably a forever change in my style!!!




  1. That's a really pretty quilt; who cares if it's a repeat?!! Besides, I know you'll have that other quilt done soon, and it will be fabulous anyway. :)

  2. Thank you for sharing. Love the pieced back! And this certainly looks like a cuddly quilt.

  3. Hooray for constant change and growth !
    So glad that this was a 'comforter' through a bad spell........can't think of a better job for a quilt !

  4. So pretty. Still have yet to finish a big quilt! Good job :)

  5. Beautiful quilt! Love the colors and especially the back!!

  6. It's beautiful! I love the colors. For years I bought dark thimbleberries type colors because that's what so many of the pattern books showed and I had a hard time finding brights. No more-now I only buy the bright pretty colors I love.

  7. You know I loved you through the repro phase and I'll love you through the next one!

    Beautiful colors, quilt and the heart that made them is loverly!

    Have fun today!

  8. Beautiful quilt and I love that you pieced the back also :o)

    Now, if I could only actually complete one of my many started!
    Blessings & Aloha!
    I'm finally have some free time and able to read more Quilt Festival posts :o) I'd love for you to stop over :o)

  9. KT, Summer Breeze is a perfect name for this quilt! Even though I have seen it before, I still love it. I also enjoy hearing the story behind it. The colors are so soft, and I especially love how you pieced the back.... a trend you should definitely continue ;-)


I love to hear your thoughts, and I try to respond. Thanks for sharing your time and encouragement!
