Summer Sun & Stars

Summer holds a lot of happy memories for me.  I always loved school, but I also loved adventuring and hanging out with my family.  That is what summer is for.  It is for staying up late, playing outside under the stars, and relaxing on sandy beaches.

Catalina Batiks by Moda brings all of those happy memories tumbling back to me.  The only thing that would make them do it more would be if they smelled like coconut oil and salt air.

Add to the beautiful fabric my mother's beautiful piecing - check out those wonderfully pointy points -

and Anne Bright's "Paisley Sun" and you get one wonderful quilt!!  AND the pattern for the quilt is now available for free on Moda Bake Shop.

It is a great way to celebrate summer...piece it while you are hiding from the heat...finish it to make a wonderful beach throw...or a place to rekindle that summer time warmth during the cold months of winter.

Another beautiful quilt! I love how you tucked in littler stars between the large ones - it adds so much to the design. Wonderful piecing and quilting - congratulations!

Gorgeous! I can't zoom in on the photos (smart phone doesn't seem to like flickr) but are there extra stars in some of the gaps? Love it x

It's a happy quilt, beautifully pieced and gorgeously quilted.


Hi Cindy,

thank you for this nice idea.
Here is my version - "Spring Awakening"-> german: "Frühlingserwachen" ... I sew it for my mother.
