I started this little quilt on Christmas Eve, when I had a surprise day off and my husband took our daughters out for their annual breakfast and shopping date. I started with a few mini charm packs of Simple Marks Summer by Malka Dubrawsky and some Michael Miller Cotton Couture in Stone.
I cut the gray into five inch squares and stitched diagonally across the colorful fabrics in two opposite corners. If I’d arranged all the squares in the same direction, this would’ve been a bow tie quilt. But I used them more like half square triangles and arranged them as I liked, with a diamond radiating outward spokes. (If anyone knows of a name for this design, please let me know!)
And as always, sunlight through a quilt is just magical!
But harsh winter sunlight is not quite as kind. I had a really hard time getting decent pictures of the finished quilt.
The back is a super soft rock-n-roll dinosaurs flannel.
And it’s on its way to little Levi in Florida, where I hope it will not have to see snow again!
