Summersville Spring

Posted on March 02, 2013 by Jenn Thurston | 0 comments

Have you seen the new line out by Lucie Summers called Summersville Spring?   It looks exactly how it sounds; warm spring days, birds chirping, butterflies fluttering by... it's the perfect fabric for the last gloomy days of winter.  In fact, the rare occurrence of when we got snow I decided to sew this bright, cheery quilt while it was blowing flakes like crazy outside.

I have to admit, I really did enjoy the beautiful evening of snow we had.  So pretty, and it was the perfect snow for snow balls!  I also have to admit I was happy to see it leave the next day.

This quilt was so easy to put together!  It just takes 2.5" strips so it's prefect to use that jelly roll that you've had your eye on!  Best part is, a small size like this one only takes half a jelly roll... soooo, you could make a large one or two small ones!

The pattern is called Unwind, it uses that fantastic Lazy Angle ruler that I'm in love with!  In fact, this is my third pattern using the Lazy Angle ruler.  I suggest you check it out, you won't regret it! 

I used a quilting pattern called meandering feathers.  It's fantastic, just the right amount of space left between the feathers.  This won't be the last time you see me use it!

I had so much fun making this! I will be keeping this pattern in mind for my next baby quilt I need to make.

Big Flirt

Meet one of our newest collections called Flirt by Sandy Gervais.  One of the many prints this line offers is a fun and whimsical panel featuring two sweet blue birds perched up high.

One of my favorite features in the quilt is the checkerboard around the inner border, reminds me of ribbon that's been woven.

The panel comes with two of the same prints, so the options are really endless of all the things you could do with it!  The pattern uses the second panel as appliqué in the corners, which I think is a great idea and really adds a lot of detail without all that really tedious layering!

Last but not least is a close up of our backing.  We used a bella solid for the backing and a neutral thread which really features the outline of hearts nicely.  I just love the way it turned out!
