With a trip to California coming up,
This one I'm calling Poolside because
of the beautiful pool at my brother's house.
Even though the temperature was in the 100's,
I do believe they will need a quilt at some point.
I was inspired by this quilt of Natalie's.
Isn't it gorgeous??!!
I needed to make mine a little quicker and still have a decent size.
I used 4 1/2" strips of 15 different fabrics.
Most are from Amy Butler's line of Daisy Chain.
The white fabric was cut in 3 1/2" strips. I think I had 13 strips of white. I just sewed all the print strips together (I cut each one in half) in one big long strip and did the same with the white. I cut the center, starting rectangle, 4 1/2 " x 10 1/2". Then just went around and around like a log cabin.
The overall size ended up around 60" x 67".
I opted for some Anna Maria Horner Folksy Flannel
(which I'm kind of addicted to)
for the back.
I'm so happy with the finished product!
If I only had a pool to go with it.
