Sunshine was for Niece-the-Elder for Christmas.
This rather sad effort is the only full length photo I got.
|Close up of the quilting|
I was inspired by RPQ's Alice, although with a very different colour pallete. However, once I'd made up both the log cabin blocks and the four patch blocks and started to think about putting them together, it started to feel like there might be just a bit too much going on. I think it's the brightness of the red and yellow, perhaps. (Alice is in much calmer blues and greens.)
Anyway, instead of alternating the two styles of blocks, I split them into two quilts, alternating each with plain white squares.
|The Other Half of Sunshine|
This got me two quilts for the price of one (well, plus a whole lot of extra white solid and twice as much backing and binding fabric and all the extra work ...).
The Other Half of Sunshine is on the bed in the spare room, meaning it's very occasionally for visitors and very frequently for the cats.
