Whew! Am I glad to declare this quilt finished? You bet I am! 😀
Time to step back and begin to enjoy ‘Sixty Degree Summer’ in all it’s pretty, puffy glory.
The quilt measures 46″ x 61″. The blocks are from the Sixty Slice quilt by Leah Day – designed to make the most of a pack of Fat Eighths – I adapted the pattern to use a pack of Fat Quarters.
I am glad I persevered with this quilt. I am falling back in love with it now I’ve had a chance to step back and enjoy a view of the whole rather than getting over-heated by the close up view. (Read about the basting and quilting woes I experienced with this quilt in last weeks blog post, Pin Basting Methods ).
As the making of this quilt was inspired by seeing the Leah Day pattern and was not scheduled into my sewing goals it definitely counts as a Squirrel of a quilt so I’m linking it to Sandra’s DrEAMi link up .Also linking it with Michelle’s Beauties Pageant to celebrate an unexpected finish! Both Sandra and Michelle have finishes to share along with galleries of inspiring quilts in their link ups 🙂
