The Sunshine quilt is done and is ready to be sent as soon as I have another one to fill the box.
I am frugal on postage you see, and these boxes are paid by the size.
This quilt took the most of my yellow strip scraps and that was good.
I have used the strips as they were, no cutting to size.
I know for a fact that next time I do this pattern I will do them as 1/4 blocks.
Full blocks, 15", stretched when being cut to size. 7,5" squares are easier to handle.
I used to teach a children's folding toy and had a lot of these very bright prints. They do look good in children's quilts though - adds a spark - but they are busy and I am bored with them now.
The folding toy had 6 different fabrics in them, with different colours, so my bright children's bug print collection used to be good.
The folding toy is history and so is the super bright fabric collection also, just about.
I am very happy for Bloglines right now, as I am able to see who are updating their blogs. I have all the StashQuilts blogring + more added to my list.
I have another care quilt in the making, with yellow and red, using the Tri Rec tool.
It is not as bright as the Sunshine quilt.
