Sunshine and Showers Baby Quilt

Sunshine and Showers Baby Quilt

Oooh, I like this one. My first foray into *LOW VOLUME* (for the background!).  I have to jump on the bandwagons, it's the only way I get out.  It was fun to make too, once I sorted out how to construct the blocks the way I wanted to!! Like this:

And in quilting news...I started working on these little guys again.  And got the construction right this time, yeah!

Back in November, I began with gusto and my blocks startled me when after constructing many, many, they all flipped *themselves* around like this:  The one on the left is whackadoo.  The one on the right is *perfect*.

I'll be ripping apart 30 of the blocks constructed like the one on the LEFT while supervising math.  I made the wrong ones a couple months back, realized they were NOT how I wanted them and started again like the one on the RIGHT.  Glad I figured it out!

Naughty little things. Some seam ripping... what am I saying... I just tore those little suckers apart and we were back in business.

And here you are! I'm pleased with the cheerful name I picked. And I think I must be loooonging for Spring, or something.

I used a nice snuggly flannel on the back, from Riley Blake's Hooty Hoot line:

  And I went bold with the binding, a Kona cotton solid in....hmm. Not sure. But purple.

  I pieced and quilted it all in Aurifil 50 wt in white. As I do. Hopefully this will brighten further some rainbow baby's arrival, or add joy to a nursery wall (but who would put something snuggly up where it can't be touched...!!)  At any rate, it's for sale in my shop!

    1. Hi Kathy. I don't have a pattern for this, but the log cabin block is easy to find a tutorial for. My strips are cut to 1.5 inches.
