Zippity Doo Dah!

Zippity Doo Dah!

My, oh my, what a wonderful day! Plenty of sunshine, heading my way…Oh sorry:)

This is my inspiration:qam_a_quiltsandmore_0209It’s a darling quilt from the cover of the Quilts and More magazine…I was looking at it and realized that it was made with half square triangles. Wow! I thought, I could do this with a charm pack.

So, I took two Zippity Doo Dah charm packs and made half square triangles using Kona Muslin (80 5in. squares) then laid them out…It was much easier than it looks! My kind of quilt!  I am so pleased with the results…Here’s mine all finished up:  p4130113I love how the striped squares turned into zig zags. This has got to be the cutest Americana Fabric! I can’t wait for picnic season to get here!  For the magazine and pattern click HERE.

Collections For a Cause

This quilt is made for a family friend who is struggling with terminal cancer. p4070075p4130109I wanted to give her something that would be meaningful, but, I also needed to get it done quickly so I went with a simple hourglass block made from a Collections for a Cause layer cake.  I felt really good about spending money on this fabric because it directly benefits cancer research. I think it turned out really lovely. Hope she likes it as well!
