A Little More Summer Wind

The 3rd border is the same as the first, scrappy squares, easy peasy.


The 4th border is half square triangles, and you know how I love half square triangles!


I'm going with three colors in this border, yellow, green and orange.  I made sure I pieced an equal number of orange/green, yellow/orange, and yellow/green units.  That way I wouldn't accidentally have  a dominant color.

Again, no problems, everything went together just as it should.


Why does it always seem like the projects you love the most go the fastest?  Maybe it's because you love them so much that you work on them every chance you get.  I'm loving this one.

Just a reminder, the fabric is High Street by Lily Ashbury for Moda and the pattern is Summer Wind by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.

  2. I've had this pattern for ages, wanting to make it with scraps, but not having many pastel scraps I have never made it. I need to rethink my fabrics...your top is turning out gorgeous!

  3. Your quilt is so much nicer than mine. I didn't do any planning with my colors and that was a mistake. Looking great so far, Thelma!
