A quilting friend of mine, who doesn't have a blog, shared these pictures of this amazing summer quilt with me. I've been intending to share it with you all summer long. Since today is the last day of August, I thought I better get to it.
This quilt was made by Gloria for her granddaughter.
The pattern was designed by Carol Burniston and was in the May/June 2008 issue of Fons & Porters Love of Quilting magazine. The pattern name is Summer Flip-Flops. I fell in love with this quilt way back then and saved the pattern.
I think Gloria did an amazing job with the whole project but I really like her selection of flip-flop fabric. I would like to have a pair of each one of them in my closet.
It won't be long until I'll be putting my summer flip-flops up for the winter, but if you had a quilt like this, you could leave your flip-flops out all the time!
Gloria and I both have a love for red and white quilts. As a matter of fact, Gloria's very first quilt was a red and white sampler quilt. She puts red fabric in almost every quilt she makes and is always looking for red fabric in any quilt shop she visits. She took her first quilt class over 20 years ago.
I've been cleaning out my pattern binder and this pattern is looking for a new home, if you would like to have the pattern for this quilt leave a comment asking to be included in the drawing I'll have over the weekend.
If you don't want the pattern but love that flip-flop quilt as much as I do, please leave a comment for Gloria. I get comments and emails from quilters who don't have blogs all the time, I'm so happy to showcase one of them on my blog, I hope you'll make Gloria feel as good about her quilt as you always make me feel about mine!
Thanks so much!
