My Sunprint Quilt

Last month I blogged about my newly acquired collection of fabrics from the Sunprint 2018 collection.


I absolutely love how rich and saturated the colors are.   My local quilt store - Cary Quilting Company - will nicely sell you fabrics by the inch so I purchased 6'' of each of the colorways.

I brought the project on my recent guild retreat and made 33 blocks.  It was really cheerful to sew these blocks with those fabrics.


Now, to decide on my layout.  This is what I am thinking about - I mocked it up in EQ7 but didn't spend the time distributing all the colors.  As drawn, this quilt will be 62 x 64''.


Right now, the blocks sit on the floor of my daughter's room while she is off at college.  Each time I walk by her room, I stop and adjust my color layout!


I guess I do need to decide which direction these arrow head like blocks are pointing.  Looking at the picture, I see it is different than I had planned! 

I'll be linking up my project with  Freemotion by the River,   WIP Wednesday's,  Let's Bee SocialMidweek Makers.  Needle and Thread Thursdays, Finish it Up Friday and Finished or Not Friday.

Have a wonderful day! Patty

  3. What a fun, bright quilt this is going to make! I'd be really tempted to put all but one block facing the same direction, but I'm odd like that. :)

  4. Thanks for sharing. I love these fabrics. Nice to see them with the medium grey, which is not my go to. I don't know, make some "the other way" as a subtle protest quilt!

  11. I am late to the party - just checking all my accumulated blog posts :) But still wanted to tell you that I also love the idea of the mock up - with just a rainbow corner and one main other color group. Looks very modern - as your full rainbow design does as well - love the offset and all the negative space!
