Hello! Today I’m introducing Sunshine Day–a new fat quarter quilt! Sunshine Day is a quilt I’ve been wanting to make for awhile…I almost released this as a pattern with our last collection but realized it would be fun to wait on this one for our sun print fabrics to go along with the name.
I could just imagine a fun outer border of those cute sun fabrics and could
hardly wait to make it! You might recognize this design since I’ve previously published a Shine and Mini Shine pattern using this block–but this is a big-block version (and larger quilt) that goes together quickly and makes for a stunning design!
My friend Marion did the beautiful Baptist Clam quilting on this one…perfect! And this quilt finishes up at 78 ½″ x 78 ½″. You’ll need at least 16 fat quarters (but I used a few extra). I also used some of the low-volume prints here and there which added some fun texture.
This quilt features a technique for making the quarter-square triangle blocks that allows you to make them a little over-sized and trim to the perfect measurements before assembling your block. And the secondary patterns formed by the block corner fabrics are fun to see as well!
I love this quilt and will definitely be making a new version of my mini quilt of this design using our Clover Hollow fabrics…soon!
patterns for Sunshine Day are available in my shop now with paper
patterns shipping this week! There is also a bundle sale with all of the new patterns: Buy the four new full-sized patterns and get the mini
for free in paper or PDF!
Thanks so much for stopping by…and I hope you have a “Sunshine Day!”
