Bright fall colors

Thank you for all the baby #3 well wishes….we are really excited and it means a lot to know most of you have been there/done that too!  :)
I’ve had these Shortcake blocks half-way finished since March and decided that I should get a move on it and sew them up.   This dark, fall-ish fabrics gives the pattern such a different look than my last Shortcake quilt…it sure makes the white pop. 
This fabric is called Oh My! by Sanae for Moda.   It came out awhile ago…but I still found jelly rolls here, here, and yardage here also.   This particular quilt is a throw size and made with a  jelly roll.  

It’s definitely a bright quilt.  :)

    What a wonderful quilt! And isn't it amazing how different quilts can look like, even if the same fabrics are used…?
    Just have a look at this:

    Best wishes to you and your growing family!

    Wow, that is a deliciously bright and saturated quilt! I've got a couple of jelly rolls in need of a project, that might be a winner…

    And belated congrats on your pregnancy! I'm telling you, three is the new two! (Or maybe I'm just saying that because I had a third…)

    Wow! That is stunning! I love how the white pops, like you mentioned. I love this pattern and it is amazing the different look it takes with different fabrics. :o)
    I hope you are having a great beginning to your new week. My deepest congrats on your special little one!!
    Sincerely, Trish

    Just gorgeous! I love how colorful it is!

    It's such a nice alternative to the really girly quilts out there – it's very grown up. The white also makes it look a bit 3D I think.

    If I'd made this I'd be very pleased with myself!

    Congratulations… will you change your blogname to Cluck Cluck Cluck Sew :)!

    How are you able to find the time to produce all these wonderful quilts? I only have one child and she's fairly self sufficient now at 13 years of age. I think what you make is just lovely and you're also able to find time to blog your work and share with the rest of us. I made the Snickerdoodles by the way – fantastic! We all loved them in our house. Thank you. Alexandra

    gorgeous – the colours and white are fabulous

    Congratulations on your sweet #3!
    I love this quilt, the white is the perfect accent to pop all those colors. My favorite part, though, is how the upper right hand corner does the Spock mind-meld with the background foliage!

  31. Midnight Amy October 7, 2011 at 1:47 pm #

    Just saw your announcement, so congratulations! We just started trying for #3 this month, so I hope to be joining you soon. :) It's scary and exciting at the same time!

    Love the pattern here, although the colors are a bit bright for me. Thanks for sharing. I love seeing the things you make. They are very inspiring to me!

    I love the color scheme of this fabric line, especially the raspberry. Wouldn't have guesses it goes so well with with a white but your quilt turned out stunning.

  33. JJ October 10, 2011 at 2:09 am #

    I love that quilt.

  34. Amanda October 10, 2011 at 3:14 pm #

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the bright colors! Also– I have 3 kids + my husband's birthday in March :)
    I got teased that I should only give my husband a tie for Father's day instead of making babies ;) I truely believe that babies come at the right time– even if we seem not so ready. Hope you are feeling well.

    I love the effect of the white contrast throughout.

    Love your quilt!!! I have the same fabrics and had something else planned, but yours looks so great I'm having to think about it again!! And bright is good :-)

  37. Helen L October 13, 2011 at 6:27 pm #

    I just read your earlier post where you said you forgot the name of the fabric in your shortcakes quilt: It's "Oh My!"
    by Sanae: I love it AND your quilt!!!
