Summer House Quilt

I've got another finish to share with y'all today. In my never-ending quest to use some of the pre-cuts I have collected, this quilt pattern came to my attention.  


This was a fun, fast, quilt to make - its a Moda Bakeshop pattern  that uses a layer cake and you can find it here. I found these Summer House Layer Cakes on sale a few years ago and  I couldn't resist. The colors are so vibrant and fresh and they just bring a smile to my face.

                                                       

I backed it with this blue print and this pink dot for the binding, both from my stash:

                                                   

This makes a 58" x 58" quilt which is perfect for a nice sized baby quilt or a lap quilt.

                                                       

I always tell Jackie to just quilt whatever she is inspired to quilt and she always chooses the perfect design:

                            
I took this in to show the gals at the sale barn - 3 of them are quilters and we always bring our projects in to share - and they are all making quilts using this pattern.


It doesn't look much like summer around here at the moment - no lush green anything for a pretty backdrop, with the exception of that lilac bush that is on the verge of blooming, but a finish is worth blogging about and I have one less UFO on my list. :)

Oh those colors scream SPRING to me! Love that green... this is a great quilt pattern. I've never seen it before but I will be making a copy. I have lots of layer cakes waiting for some attention.
