I had to show you my finish for this week.  Surprise....I did some piecing (notice there is some applique).  The pattern is from the book Modern Basics: Easy Quilts to Fit Your Budget, Space, and Style (That Patchwork Place) by Amy Ellis of Amy’s Creative Side. I love modern quilts and even though I’m not much into piecing, this book has some great patterns that I have to try. I had a layer cake that had been waiting patiently for that perfect pattern. I found it in Posie Patch. The fabric is Happy Campers by American Jane for Moda. I love the way the quilt went together.  The instructions were well written and easy to follow making me anxious to try my hand at another pattern in the book.  I like the way this quilt turned out and think it will be the perfect for the cottage during those cool summer nights.

Em of Em Celebrates has a call out for anyone interested in volunteering to make a block for a project to Celebrate Children. I’m participating and hope you will too. This type of block is just the sort of thing I love. I’m especially looking forward to making this block because I grew up near Muncie, Indiana. You’ll have to read her blog to see what I mean by that.

Esch House Quilts has a free pattern for a darling quilt called Inspiration. The pattern button is on her sidebar.

Stay Positive!

That quilt is REALLY pretty! I love all those nice summery and bright colors! Love the applique on it too.
I'll have to check out Em's site for the block that you're talking about. Maybe I could get on board.

Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!
