Sneak Peeks: Sunshine in my soul

I stayed up late into the night sewing the binding on. I always do mine by hand. It was a good feeling to work on the finishing touches to a quilt, as always. The quilt was on a tight deadline, so, it went out first thing in the morning. I only had a few minutes to snap a few sneak peeks for you. Here you can see the quilt in the morning light:

The fabrics are from RJR‘s Summer Solstice collection:

I love the sunshiny and cheerful feeling these fabrics convey, emphasized by the gold in the design:

I named the design “Sunshine in my soul” for the moment because the song kept popping in my head as I was working on the quilt. The editorial staff might decide to change the name…

If all things go well, this quilt will be featured in the September 2010 issue of The Quilter:

Until then, these are all the sneak peeks I am able to show you! :) Have a sunshiny day, would you?

  1. Beautiful Wendy. Went out looking at a Bernina 630 today … grat ,achine – with a great price – but maybe! Still working on the BSR. Thought you must be flat out. Hugs

  2. Beautiful quilt! I love the floral focus fabric, and the cheery colors. Your quilting is gorgeous!

    Btw, I do my binding by hand too. :-)
