Summer Slice

Summer-Slice-Quilt-Cluck-Cluck-Sew_t (1)
I showed you a bit of this quilt a couple of weeks ago while I was still playing with the layout. This quilt came about with a little trial and error (mostly error)…but the seam ripper and I had some quality time and we worked it out.  In the end it was really fun (and easy!) to make.


I quilted it on my machine with a swirly free motion pattern…my favorite quilting pattern lately and I’m slowly getting better at it.


Finished and washed just in time for 4th of July and summer weather.
I have a tutorial for this one I’ll finish up and post in the next couple of days…one that hopefully won’t require your seam ripper!  ;)

    Lovely! It reminds me of sailboats on the sparkling water!

    This a fabulous quilt! It will work great with larger prints too. You are so clever!

    I love it! Such an interesting design, one that fools the eye and creates a TON of movement! This would be a great quilt to help diminish my ever-huge, never-diminishing scraps!

  21. Alycia June 21, 2014 at 6:34 pm #

    That is a great quilt! My seam ripper and I know more about each other than is neccessary… I feel your pain ;-)

  22. Rebecca Grace June 21, 2014 at 10:26 pm #

    That quilt is fantastic! Immediately I'm in love with the colors and the splashes of red that keep my eye moving around the quilt, and then I notice the interesting block designs. And yes, your "swirly" quilting IS getting good from practice! Love it! :-)

    Such a happy quilt, I'm looking forward to your tutorial. I've stared at your post a few times and just when i think I've figured out what you did I realize I am wrong. :) Great quilt for Pacific Northwest summers.

    Great colors and quilting. What cotton do you use and it has blended very well.

    Wow! I love your quilt. Just my colors, a quilt to put on my couch and add some color to a room. I can imagine so many possibilities. Thanks for sharing and I look forward to your tutorial.

    Perfect colors for a Fourth of July Quilt. So cheery!

  31. genevievegraves June 24, 2014 at 3:26 am #

    I love this! With slightly bigger blocks, it would be a perfect way to use a couple layer cakes…

    Love the pattern! I'm glad to hear that professional pattern makers come up with layouts the same way I do, trial and error and moving and swapping pieces, kind of like a jigsaw puzzle. Your quilting is fine, but I do like how when you wash and dry a quilt you can't notice the quilting anyway.
