hello sunshine

this is my hello sunshine quilt.
it makes me smile just looking at it!
it feels just like this time of year....
summer is still hanging on,
but it gives a nod to the upcoming fall weather.
I sure love this color/fabric combo!
most of the fabrics are from the new hello sunshine line by Connecting Threads. (LOVE!)  
and then I added in a few stash fabrics, just for good measure.
looking at this photo I realize that I forgot to add in the green dot.
(because I used it to bind a different quilt.)
at the last minute I added in a solid navy Kona cotton.
i love how the navy really stands out...
it adds so much depth to the quilt!
size: approximately 45" x 60"
template: tri-tool by Darlene Zimmerman and Joy Hoffman
(bought at JoAnn's-hurray for clearance!)
each triangle finishes about 6" tall.
here's an outtake from the photo shoot.
it makes me smile. a lot.
my oldest son is GOOFY and oh-so-helpful, too. :)
i sure love him!

I'm happy to tell you that Connecting Threads is offering up two bundles of fat quarters of the hello sunshine line to two of my readers! (One fat quarter bundle to each winner.) If you would like to win, please leave me a comment in this post. I will pick the winners (US and Canada only, please) in a few days. Please be sure that I have a way of contacting you should you win.

Happy Tuesday! xo
