A fun, fast, finish. You’ve got to love those, especially in the summertime when sewing time is rare. At least for me. These fun prints are begging for a summertime project, so this was the perfect solution!
Today I’m sharing this cheery quilt as part of a tour of projects made with a new fabric collection, designed by Dana Willard of MADE Everyday. The collection for Art Gallery Fabrics and is called Boardwalk Delight.
I have been a fan and follower of Dana for years now and love her colorful, modern style and cheerful, creative approach to design. This Boardwalk Delight fabric line reflects her aesthetic so perfectly.
This is such a fun pattern for using fat quarters – and because the blocks are so big, it’s great for showing off big prints – like the cute ice cream cones and big dots in this line.
I also LOVE that sprinkle print that I used as the background of the star. Big thanks to Melissa from Sew Shabby Quilting for doing the quilting on this one. I had her use the Splash pattern to give some summer-y texture to this quilt with a lot of big spaces.
And here is my really, really ridiculously good-looking model helping me show off one of my favorite ways to use a quilt in the summer. 😉
(Yes, I had to bribe him.)
Check out Dana’s blog MADE Everyday over the next few weeks for more fun projects made with Boardwalk Delight.
And now, I would be off to lie on a quilt and eat a popsicle, but…
…instead I’m off to Home Depot to buy paint and tile to fix the bathroom that leaked through the living room ceiling… 🙁 That’s real life!
