Summer Quilt

So, ya know how I have been faithfully using up my stash in my quilts? Well that has been going fabulously. I have a few more quilts planned out and then I have almost completely used all the fabric I have. Believe it or not, I'd rather not have a stash of fabric kicking around making me feel guilty. But......when Heather Ross's new line of fabric came out over the summer I splurged. I splurged and bought a quarter yard- a quarter yard of everything!

But I love it so much! I made this quilt roughly using Denyse Schmidt's What a Bunch of Squares Quilt for inspiration. It reminds me a lot of this quilt that I did last year.

Wow you have been busy. That and the red quilt in the post below look like a lot of work.

I gave your etsy shop a plug on my blog but don't expect you to give me extra chances in your giveaway draw considering the lateness of it.
I just wanted to tell people out my talented blogging buddies.

I just erased about 4 sentences trying to say something so simple - I love it! Can't put my thoughts on your design into words easily. How about a simple - Well Done!

Great colors Betty!! You always pick fabulous materials to work with.

Kathy said...

Your quilts are great. I love the improvisational look. Do you plan them out or do you make up the blocks as you go along? Have you heard of Gwen Marston. She wrote a book called Liberated Quiltmaking. It is fantastic and it reminds me of what you are doing. Great work.

Jennifer said...

I just love your style. I know that you say that you are inspired by DS, but you have really started fine tuning a style that is all your own. This is a great quilt. I love the small details too. :~)
