Hello Friends, I have been terribly behind on posting about my magazine quilts this year. One of the reasons is that I have been really pressed for time… it always takes a bit of time for me to style my quilts for my very un-professional photo shoot sessions. My photography skills are very minimal, and I often rely on the outdoors to be the backdrop of my quilts. Anyway, the weather was finally warm enough for us to venture outdoors a couple of weekends ago.
I am happy to share with you my Sunny Delight quilt that was featured in Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting January/February 2015 issue. Click here to purchase quilt kit that will save you time in gathering your fabrics.
This quilt has LOTS of pieces. I have to say I actually enjoyed piecing the quilt top. Maybe my love for piecing has grown over time without me even realizing it.
Sunny Delight uses fabrics from a sweet, bright and cherry fabric line, LuvBugs by Benartex.
I used quite a bit of white to break up the prints used in the quilt top. And that means, lots of quilting opportunities. I meant for the quilting to reflect a feeling of informal and fun.
You may recall I had shared with you two free-to-use designs featuring the same fabric line.

And with that, I shall bid you good bye for now. Thank you for visiting, and I shall catch up with you tomorrow.
