The Endless Summer Quilt Made During an Endless Rain!

I'm finished! Good thing too, because it's March 31! The LePetite project for March was Endless Summer designed by Pam Buda from Heartspun Quilts. I really enjoyed making this pattern with Sunkissed fabric by Sweetwater.  Usually I like to mix fabric lines, but this one really pulled me in and I just couldn't mix it with anything!  I was looking for a nice fresh Spring-Summer quilt and this fabric line fit right in.  How could I not make a pattern called Endless Summer with a fabric line called Sunkissed?  No, I really didn't choose it because of the name, but it works doesn't it?  I missed the Quilt Along that Quilt Dad did earlier in the year with the Sunkissed line, and I just loved those blocks! When this LePetite project came along, I ended up ordering Sunkissed, even though I had some other wonderful charm packs just waiting for the right projects. Be sure to visit Sherri and Sinta in the next few days to see the whole LePetite Parade!  Thanks so much ladies, for taking the time to put the Parade together!


Endless Summer made with Sunkissed fabric.




LePetite for March
The lighting isn't the greatest on this one. It's rainy today, not a good day for pictures......but maybe that goes with the Sweetwater fabric! Sorry! I could't resist that one!




Having fun quilting the Easter quilts!


Almost done with this one!

I'm quilting again! One of my goals that I posted for March and April with Charming Girls Club was to start quilting some of my quilts again. Quilt tops are starting to take over my house and I'd better get quilting so I have some excuses reasons to make some more!   I haven't actually quilted any of my quilts yet, but I got started by working on some charity quilts that my friend Mary Pat made.  She does the the piecing, then I do the quilting. More on that project in another post!

Endless Summer is bright and cheery. What sort of quilting set up do you have and how much room does it take up? I would love to do all my own quilting.

Judith said...

Your quilt is gorgeous. I'm thinking of getting a long arm 'cos I'd love to do more quilting on bigger pieces. Can you give me any advice?

Love your endless summer with Sunkissed, I am think that I might have to make one of the Le Petite projects with it...

I got the Fandango at Hancocks of Paducah a couple weeks ago, they have some great moda lines on sale right now and as you could see I couldn't pass them up. Have fun shopping :)
