Today Cheryl and I wanted to share a few of our alternate quilts from the book. We are both sewing up each other's quilts, which is quite fun! And shockingly enough, we haven't run out of scraps yet! :)
Just this morning I finished up this quilt top...my version of Cheryl's Sunday Morning pattern. I. LOVE. this. quilt. It measures 70"x90".
This is an alternate of the splash quilt (you can see the original here). I sewed this one up as a triple check of the pattern instructions. (That's the danger of making a quilt improv style and THEN writing the pattern. But I'd do it all over again.) It's fun to have the quilt made up in different color ways. I've been a pink and green girl for a long time, so this quilt feels very "me".
And last, but not least, this is my version of Cheryl's Grass quilt. I used my strings to make horizontal sashing strips rather than vertical sashing. I'm calling this one Summertime.
For the back, I used some soft, pretty fabrics from my stash, in keeping with the easy summer feeling. I love how it came together. My friend Marcia was kind enough to let me quilt it on her long arm. It was awesome to start quilting it at 11:30am, and to have the binding on (machine done, of course) and in the washer by 4pm that afternoon. Lickety split!
